I tried holding button dwn for 30 to 60 seconds went to a blue screen then froze ad turned off now nothing is working

I have an Acer Aspire 5517. When power up if has a black screen and the fan will not come on. Any idea what would cause this issue.

@bmck I'd avoid such old posts. I might think you have a 9 year old laptop which my advice is to recycle responsibly.
