The computer even gets warm but there is no startup chime and the screen never turns on. This happens with or without being plugged in and with or without a battery inserted. I also tried to boot from a DVD to no avail. Needless to say I'm pissed as I have replaced the SuperDrive, the power adapter, and the battery. This time it seems more serious. I'll probably go with an HP Envy with an SSD next time...no moving parts.
