POST Failure

  greenkeen 17:36 24 Mar 2007

my wife has just given me her laptop as it is not working!!!!! When it is powered up it displeys the makers splash screen but does not do enything else. It does not appear to perform POST and just sits there. I have checked the seating of the processor, memory and dvd drive. The light for the hard disc light at startup and the fan is working. Is it now scrap. Any ideas welcome.
Thanks for any help going.

might need to rip it apart and reset the bios.. (or disconnect the batt for a few mins)

no point in trying a boot disc if it doesnt POST i suppose.
