Hey all, just tried to boot my lappy (an old acer aspire) & get nothing, I don't even reach the bios! I doubt it's a hardware problem as it worked fine yesterday, I tried the usual (booting from a disk) and still got nothing, I'm a linux user and pretty tech savy. I've read that it could be something to do with the CMOS. Any suggestions?

Sorry mate. All I get is a lot of fan action and a green light on the front that I think means that the CPU is active.
