Power switch fails to light up (green) when turned on. Battery light turns on green to show it is fully charged. Any advice on what could be faulty - power switch, power unit or battery or any thing more serious.
No warning computer was perfectly working last time 2 days ago.

try these things to check where the prolem lies

remove battery try to start from power unit.

any joy. no ?

try this stat once more but hold the swithch down for a minute let go,wait a minute then try again. Y ou trying to establish whether it is a switch problem or some other component.

NOW repeat all above with battery in and mains disconnected.

Still no luck then its a repair shop job- who may turn the job down depending on age of machine and parts availability.

Workshop costs run at 60 quid an hour these days - is the machine worth a couple of hours to find it is not repairable?
