So when you press the power button, nothing happens? No fans spin, etc?

I have also just come across this problem. Since last night my laptop has slowly deteriated in to nothing. first it was crashing while loading windows, then it said a file was missing before loading windows, then it just came up with a blank screen and bow it won't turn on what so ever...

I have a Compaq ev0 n1050v. Its a 60gb hdd, 512mb ram, pentium 4 2.2g processor.

Any ideas?

It's best if you made your own topic. Although your issues are similar, the instructions may be different. If you make a new topic, someone will get back with you.
