Hello. I went to bed last night, to be woken by my girlfirend sayin that the laptop wont start. When i turn it on i get a grey screen and the blue wi-fi light is stuck on. Normaly this flashes on and then the system starts up.

I have no keyboard functions the dvd drive doesnt even open.

Any ideas ?

Even the Evesham website seems to be down.

Boot direct of mains with battery disconnected. (bad battery can drag down power supply)

Unplug all mememory and just install minimum (faulty mem module can stop from booting.)
