I left the thing unplugged to anything this morning and left for about
6 hours. When I returned and plugged it to the AC adapter, it would
begin to turn on and boot up, then stops. The screen never does light
I thought maybe some keyboard control would light up the screen, but I
can't find any. Fn-UpArrow does nothing. I can't even fire up the
BIOS. Once it tries to boot (makes noise inside) for about a few
seconds, it sits with only the power led on. The disk drive has power
because I can spin a disk in it. But that's all it does. Trying it
on battery only does nothing different.
No idea what could have happened - maybe the best option is the dump.

re-plugged AC adapter without the battery in place. Boots right up!
Hell, the battery is brand new and was working just fine.
What do you guys think about this? I can't run this thing this way.
