I have a 3 or 4 year old ProStar laptop. My wife turned it off sunday night using the Windows shut down. Monday she goes to run it on, and nothing.
The CD dirve spins up, I think the floppy starts, don't know about the HD. The processor is creating heat, and the fans will come on.
Nothing is ever displayed on the screen, and I don't even get the customary BIOS beeps. It will just sit like that indefinitely. The BIOS never loads, and I can't tell if the HD is working or not.
My only thoughts are bad processor, or maybe a dead CMOS battery?
Anybody have a good guess.
