My wife's Samsung netbook has suddenly died. She previously had an intermittent problem with it not turning on, which strangely resolved itself a couple of times by removing the battery. That has no effect now - the power switch doesn't bring it to life.

The charging light comes on when the power cord is connected, and the battery was fully charged last time she was able to use it, so I don't think there's an issue there.

I'm also aware she's dropped it a couple of times in the past, and suspect there is a slightly dodgy connection somewhere inside as a result of this.

It's not a screen issue as there are other lights which come on (eg. HDD light) while booting.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
