Answers :

\015\012If the laptop posts (power on self test)
\015\012and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short , do the following: (this checks for a software problem)when booting up press F8 and when you get to the menu, boot up into safe mode,
\015\012\015\012\015\012then restore the pc back to a date before you had the problem, and/or remove any program you installed prior to you having the problem,
\015\012
\015\012if that don't work Try a bootable anti virus disc, use it to check for any viruses ,
\015\012if not try a recovery disc, or operating system disc ,
\015\012
\015\012both disc's will try to access the hard drive. if they do not work, (nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.
\015\012
laptop does not post:
(then it is a hardware problem)
\015\012\015\012\015\012try the following first.check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,
\015\012
\015\012if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
\015\012
\015\012Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
\015\012
\015\012remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives and remove the memory sticks,
\015\012clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
\015\012
\015\012swap them around if you have more than one,
\015\012try one at a time.
\015\012if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or
\015\012
\015\012get a friend or family member to download a "memory chip diagnostic's" program such as memcheck 1.70 and boot up of it ,it will check your ram ,if not
\015\012
\015\012take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
\015\012
\015\012if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok, and anti virus and recovery /system disc's do not work,
\015\012it may be that the motherboard or the cpu is failing
\015\012
\015\012Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.
\015\012
good luck with that and let me know how you get on
