    I have a Toshiba laptop, three years old, with XP. Last night I shut down the normal way and this morning it doesn't turn on.

    The on light is on, but the screen is blank. If I press the emergency power button, there's no response. The power on and battery charging lights do not turn on. The fan is working. I have turned off the power, hoping that when the battery dies it will turn off and then we can turn it on again. Right now, it's dead except for the fan and the on light.

    Hi and welcome. Try removing the battery, then power up on A/C.

    Either see if you can recharge it, or throw it away and get a new one.
