    Hmm, I can't find any info for that unit, if it is newer you might as well RMA it and get it fixed under warranty.

    My experience is once a lappy refuses to turn on about the only things you can do are

    1. Try a different power supply
    2. Unplug unit, remove battery, remove all pcmcia cards and open it up and remove the internal cmos battery then pray.

    Good Luck
