Hi all. I tried to search the forums but haven't really found any answers to my issues. This morning I opened up my laptop to use it for a while, and it was powered off. I thought this was odd, since I didn't shut it down last night, just closed the lid. I hit the power button, and the laptop looks like it trys to start up, and the harddrive spins up, but it won't boot. I see the lights come on for about 5 sec. then it shuts down. I don't hear any of the fans spinning up at all. What could it be? I tried booting off the battery, and the power supply(which is almost brand new) nothing works. It's not even posting. I don't see anything on the screen at all. Is my video card dead? I used it for about 3 hours last night and it was fine, I didn't have any artifacting, and the computer was running fine.
