Fujitsu Amilo Laptop
I have had a laptop brought in, which we suspect to be a shorted motherboard because the student was messing about with ports in the back etc, but when you switch it on it wont do anything. The light comes on and CD drive spins but the fans do not and it doesn't boot into the BIOS. Any ideas anyone, done some research on internet and it says about dusty fans etc but it is all OK. It stays switched on for about a minute and then switches back off.

Try disconnecting the BIOS battery for 10 minutes ...
Can be awkward to get at depending on the laptop, but it has occasionally brought machines back to life for me !
