It wont wake up! LOL..I shut the lid (like I always do at night) and the next morning, it wont wake up.  I took the battery out, power supply, and left it that way over night.  Still nothing.  I tried to blow all the dust off the fan (since its about 5 years old), CMOS battery out and all I get is the fan starting up then slowing down, and the caps lock and num lock lights blinking.  I'd love to get it awake long enough to back up my files.  Any ideas?  TIA

Hi :) :welcome:

Are you able to boot into safemode?
Is there anything appearing on the screen after switching power on?

How did you remove the CMOS battery if it's a laptop?

Can you boot a CD or DVD or flash drive?
Can you get into BIOS Setup?
