\015 Laptop was ok and connected to internet wirelessly. Walked away for few mins and came back to blank screen with no response. Cannot switch back on now just dead. Big problem? Model not listed below so have chosen nearest. Model is MT6220b. Purchased April 07.Thanks\015

Answers :

Suggest disconnect from AC power, and remove battery. Push power button 10 times, depressing for 2 seconds each time. This will flush the capacitors.

Then, reconnect AC power and press power button.

Try that. Does it work? If so, you might have a power problem on your motherboard. This is a work around, as repairs can be costly, time consuming, and more of a hassle than their worth.
