    When I plus in the power the charge light comes on but when I press the power nothing happens at all. Was working intermittently before this. Does anyone have any ideas what may be wrong/how this could be fixed?

    A hard reset may help
    take the battery out and hold the power key down for 60secs
    then put the battery back in
    see if that now boots, it may go into the setup/bios settings - check the date and time are OK if so choose the - exit without saving
    should now bootup
