My laptop has been working for years - now it won't boot.
I press the power button, the fan whirrs up as normal. About 3-5 seconds of normal whirring. Then it dies. Nothing appears on screen. It sounds like it does when I try to boot from battery when the battery is dead but the AC power is in.
I have tried:
- left it charging over night
- battery in no AC
- battery out AC only
Always exactly the same.
I have two questions - thanks in advance if you can help:
1 - How can I get it to boot?
2 - How can I recover the data from the hard disk which I presume is fine as it worked a few days ago.
