Can you give more details? Can you tell if the HDD is spinning up? Do you see anything on the screen? Are there any troubleshooting lights? Have you tried with the battery out and plugged in to the wall or battery in and no wall power?

Don't F with the Irish! But the dumb Irishmen is but a fool? I don't see the master boot record as an issue?

But what the hell do I know as I am just a drunken Irishmen myself?
