Just got back from holidays the other day, laptop booted but after being switched off won't boot any more. Elminated charger as tried it with something else. Won't boot with battery d/c/removed. Power light comes on but pressing power button it goes off for 5 - 10 seconds then comes back on. Doesn't load bios or nothing. Competent with desktops but not a clue with laptops. Suspect it's the Mobo and therefore uneconomic to repair (it's a core duo t20801.73Ghz 1gb ram 1 stick 80gb HDD). Would it make sense to sell on the re-useable bits? I've tried a local omputer shop but he wants £25 to look at it.
