    hi guys,
    having a major issue with my acer 9303 laptop. It just went dead. The power button illuminates, hdd light flickers twice but cannot get past that point. DVD drive has power and will eject, when I plug in a usb mouse, that illuminates aswell, which means that power seems to be going through ok, but no fan noise. Luckily I have this netbook that I am using in the meantime.

    I have carried out the following:-
    a. swapped the hdd from the netbook to the acer, no change.
    b. upgarded the ram to 2 gig a year ago, so swapped back to the original ram, no change
    c. tried with battery, without battery, direct power from plug, etc, no change.
    d. if I keep my fingers pressed on the power button which is illuminated, it switches off after a few seconds
    any ideas ? much appreciated
