    Dear all, Happy new year and all :)

    I wonder if you could help...

    My husbands laptop this evening will not turn on AT ALL. It was working perfectly well a few days ago:

    When the power button is turned on all that happens is the power light turns green. There is no sound coming from the hard drive (the hard drive light doesn't even show). In addition, there doesn't seem to be a fan working. And finally, there is a light strange noise (not a hard drive noise).

    I am wondering whether it is a motherboard issue????
    Woud creating a recovery bios boot CD help? Would like wipe the hard drive?

    The major problem is that the laptop is used for all our business transactions and GASP.... we haven't backed it up, so we could potentially lose very important data :(

    Many thanks and I do hope somebody is out there to help us.

    Much geekness
