Sounds like a hardware problem to me, so your best option would be to post a job request on the main page.

One quick one to try: what happens if you leave the battery out and try and start it from the powersupply?

then your best bet is to follow Wim's advice
We won't be able to help fix this through the forum: it needs someone to be "hands on"

assuming its out of warranty, then if you raise a job request with PCIQ the attending engineer will carry out the repair (if feasible) at his / her workshop
As to cost, impossible to answer as we don't know whats wrong. Could be a dead motherboard, could be a dead screen, both expensive - possibly too expensive. It could be a loose cable, it could be a failed inverter, which are both cheap to fix
Until someone inspects it, we don't know
But it won't fix itself.

To give you a better idea of price, if it is the screen that is faulty, you are looking at almost £100 for parts alone. If it is the motherboard, it may even be £150 in parts. Labour charges will vary by area and who you use, but you are probably looking at £150-200 to fix it. On the other hand, if it is just the inverter or a loose cable, it may be well under £50.
