to find out for sure take it to a good computer repair shop,at best all we can do here is guess!

It sounds as though your machine is stuck in a low power state. If tapping the spacebar, or clicking the left mouse mutton does not recover it - press and hold your powerbutton down for approx 8 seconds and this will "crash" your machine, release and press the power button again in the normal way you would start the machine and all should be well, apart from a windows complaint, but your machine should satart!

Check the bios and the power setting in the os to make sure it is not going to sleep.Also check in the bios, how the on button stops it this could be set incorrectly.

This sounds like your power supply unit or internal power management within the laptop has passed. You have two options, 1. Purchase a replacement power supply unit, some of the generic ones can be as cheap as £20 - however if this is not the case then you are stuck with a spare which may not work in a replacement laptop you may purchase in the future. 2. Take the laptop to a reputable local IT company (NOT A BIG ONE THEY WILL WRITE IT OFF as they are generally sales driven!) and ask them to test it for you as they should have access to an alternative power supply unit, have access to suppliers who can get you replacement components for the laptop and in the worse case scenario recover your data.

Where are you in the country? As this is just part of what we do?
