    my hp laptop

    will not start up

    the lights come on

    but the screen does not power up

    same thing on battery power or plugged into ac

    it is now 3 yrs old

    i am wondering if the battery is so dead that is does not allow even the ac to work

    anyone have suggestions?

    wondering if i should try a new battery to see if i can get power to get the thing running

    If you remove the battery, it should operate off an AC adapter. Can you hook up an external monitor to the back?

    Try removing the battery for a few minutes.

    we have no monitor (got rid of our desk top pc yrs ago)

    yup removed the battery, no luck

    off to the computer guru tomorrow to see if it can be brought back to life

    if not.............

    eyeballing a macbook pricey though.
