    Hi all, just wanted to ask you all for any suggestions on how to fix this problem.

    Shut down my laptop as normal lastnight, went to start it this morning and nothing..:eek: the battery light says its fully charged but if i take the battery out and try using it with just the power adapter to start no lights at all come on and of course it doesn't start. I have checked the power adapter with multimeter and its putting out correct voltage.

    I am out of warranty by 2 months :mad:

    Also how do i find the switch that indicates whether the lid is open or not?
    and where is the reset button located?

    Thanks in advance for any helpful information

    If you're getting the right readings for the power adapter then it might be a motherboard that's gone south. Try pushing the power button for 20 seconds and release. Then after a few more seconds push it again and see if it comes on..
