It's only three months old and was working OK until one night last week. The children had been using it immediately prior - playing a game. They are usually very careful with it.

The power, wireless and battery light come on but nothing else.

I think this might be serious -does anyone know?

Its a Philips notebook.

There's also another trick you can try. Pop out the battery and then pop it back in and try again. I had the same problem with my Toshiba and that worked a treat.

Thanks I will give those things a try.

Phone the support line - must say they were very good (Curry's - I did vow that I would never buy anything from there again).

And they think the motherboard is broken/faulty and a courier is coming to collect it tomorrow!
