hp g70 120ea wont boot

Hi all

I have an hp g70 120 ea about 3-4 years old. I install a fresh windows 7 last week everything is fine until today when i press the power button fan turns on but cant hear the hdd reading sound and dvd drive. Only led on is the power and thw wifi whicknis color orange. I knowmy battery hasa problem so i tried to remove the battery and power it up using direct ac adaptor. I dont know if the adapator is broken as i can see few leds glowing and fan is moving.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks a lot guys

Try holding down power button for 30 seconds, power adaptor must be working, otherwise you,d get no leds,
I Think you need to leave it in to repair shop.
try with and without battery in,30 second push power button.
sounds like a fault in motherboard or loose connection ,to display,plug in vga monitor, press f key turns on vga out,try f5 or f key with square TV monitor, icon,
Put in a music cd, does drive light acess light come on for 5 seconds .

Some hp laptops , the cable to laptop,screen wears out after a few years .
unless hd faulty you should,nt normally be able to hear it

Remove the RAM and reseat them.

If still the same, try putting them in one at a time and in different slots.

USE a glove or cloth,or antistatic device to hold the ram, otherwise you may damage it.from static charge on your hand.

I tried all of these still the same problem. When i turn on laptop i can only hear the fan is on but cant hear hdd drive reading even the dvd drive. I tried my ram and hdd aswell on other laptop and its working fine. My guess is the main board or the video chipset. Dont know if its repairable tho
