Has anyone had this problem before?
Someone wants me to fix her laptop computer.
I don't know the specs, just got it.

It's a Compaq Presario 1200.
It won't power on. When plugged into external power, the power indicator light is on, but it won't power on. Pushing the power button does nothing. No whirring, no beeping, not even a whimper.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any ideas before I crack this baby open and take a look inside.
