    Its dead, man! j/k but maybe. Are you using a battery alone or is it plug on AC?


    Ok! take it all out the removable component like Ram, Hdd, battery cd rom and then hook it up to AC and turn it on. Let me know.

    Ok! do you have battery? I mean is there a battery on the unit? If nothing, check your AC adaptor.

    Thanks, Its almost as if its just dead, let me try to explain what happened,
    i connected the hdd and was in BIOS changing the boot order to boot from harddrive. as soon as i clicked "save and exit" it just dies, was plugged into ac. and from there it wont power up. The only thing i can think of is that my AC adapter is AC and the plug on my toughbook is DC. Would that have anything to do with it? Maybe fried something inside?

    I have one of those A/C plugs that has a light on the transformer to let me know it is plugged in and getting power. Does yours have a light on it, and is it lighting up? If you plug a light in the same socket as your laptop, does the light turn on normally? Do you have a multi-meter and know how to use it?

    That should hold you for a little while; get back to us on those questions please and we can move forward. If it is mysteriously working now, please let us know that too.

    EDIT: No, it's not an AC/DC thing, that is a band.... :)

    Take out the battery and power cord.
    Then hold the power button for 1 min. Then put the batter and power cord back in and try to boot.
