Hello I have an elderly Paillion DV9700 that I'm running linux on, yesterday I ran updates on it, to install this it needed to reboot, however it has refused to do so, When I press the power button, it flashed on for around a second then turns off. I have tried removing the battery and bale and then replacing them but nothing works. I don't think it's a software problem, but seems more like a hardware problem but what is it and can I fix it? It's a nice computer with a large clear definition screen, it seems a shame to chuck it, if anyone can advise me I would be most grateful. All the best. Gerald

disconnect the power adapter from laptop. remove main battery from laptop. hold the power button down for a 20 count. reconnect the power adapter to laptop & see if laptop powers up when you press the power button.

Hello, sorry for the late reply, but I'm unwell at the moment. I did as you suggested but I'm afraid there was no change, the top row of lights, light up for approx. 1 second then go out, the same s before. Kindest regards Gerald
