Purchased this laptop 28/12/2015 and now its just not switching on at all. I will try the repair instructions but I think it should have lasted a bit longer, what ever the problem is. The store where I bought it have checked the cable for me to see if that was the problem and it wasn’t. They wanted £60 to send it off, to find out the issue before anything was even done. The sales assistant said it could be the battery but he said it should have lasted longer. He basically said if its the motherboard you may as well just throw it out. I am sick of paying £100’s out for electrical items that live very short lives. My daughter bought this with her own money that she had been saving. I would not purchase this make of laptop again and where do I get a replacement battery and how much is that likely to be?
