I had a problem with installing windows 7 on my new laptop as it would keep freezing on the starting windows screen. Ive found here in forums that changing SATA modes might help so I have changed it to RAID, tried to boot from dvd again and the laptop just died and wouldnt turn on again! Pressing the power button doesnt do anything, Ive also tried taking out the battery and putting it back in. Any ideas?

Changing SATA modes.. as in putting it in legacy. Normally only used for xp installations. RAID was a bad idea. I would try and report it DoA and get a replacement.
