Okay so since the fixing of the family desktop was so successful, lets try my laptop.

I stopped using it when I got my desktop in my specs, and now when I turn it on, I hit the power button, the power light comes on, stays on, the CPU fan spins, but no HD activity, it should at least bump to bios without a HD shouldn't it? But it does nothing, the fan spins nothing comes up on the screen, I have tried reseating everything, and hooking up an external monitor instead of using the LCD that came with it, all to no avail.

Specs;

Inspiron 5100
P4 2.2 Ghz (ish)
374 MB RAM
20 Gig HD

No Battery at the moment just hooked in through AC power.
