laptop won't start

  tosc 09:45 02 Nov 2006

My laptop (ibm thinkpad) switched off normally, when I tried to start it up again about an hour later the hdd light flashed once briefly and nothing else. This happens whether powered from the charger or the internal battery. Any ideas?

Remove Battery and try on mains only.

Find with mine I have to keep finger on button for a couple of seconds to stop it doing the same.

tried the laptop at lunchtime and it started three times with no problem at all but this evening it is back to the bad behaviour. I tried your advice Fruitbat but it didn't work.
