When I got up to check \015\012it the laptop was off and although plugged in there was not green battery light \015\012as had always been the case when plugged in and turned off before. Now when \015\012I try to start the machine I hear the \015\012HDD spin up for 1-2 \015\012secs max then die. I see a splash screen for about \015\012the same time then the \015\012display\015\012displayDis plyDis-plyEdit... goes \015\012totally\015\012totallytotaltotalstotal \015\012ytotal-yEdit... blank, not even a residue of current in the \015\012display like on a normal shut down.Did the \015\012ipod fry the power \015\012supply?ThanksA\015\012PS took out \015\012HDD and \015\012DVD Drive but screen \015\012symptoms\015\012symptomsEdit... where identical.\015
