A neighbour brought a dead HP laptop round to see if I could help him with it.
When switching on all the lights on the laptop come on but the screen is blank. The DVD drive spins up, if I listen hard I can just about hear 1 beep. The hard drive clicks once as if ready to spin up, but doesn't start. And finally the CPU fan does not spin up at all.
I've tried taking the battery out and running straight through the mains but nothing happens. I've also connected another monitor up and again nothing happens.
The spec of the laptop is Pentium M 725 1,6ghz, 512mb ram and I think a 60gb HDD. Running XP Home.
