    power ac light came on today for first time since this happened, now off again? still no post boot from it, took HDD out and connected to my desktop as main drive hoping to see if it would boot into vista so i would know it's not the HDD, did find it had disk issues when check disk was carried out and it had to rebuild an index file, but still same problem when refitted into lappy,
    going to try booting it from recovery dvd if no good i'm going to format the drive and try to see if it will reinstall windows, but pretty much dead in the water if i have no screen lit up.
    may by another ldc invertor to test screen, unless there is another way? i don't think it is the screen as i have even plugged in a vga cable to my tv monitor and it won't even display on that.
    pretty sure that leaves either cpu fried or MB dead, or hopefully HDD /OES corrupt,

How to get out of hibernation mode nothing working

Remove the power plug, remove the battery, HOLD the POWER button pressed for 2 full minutes. Your problem should be resolved then. when computers get stuck in hibernation it is hard to get them unstuck. The only way is to force the computer to shut down. Holding the power button pressed for 2 minutes clears the cache that builds up over time, it also releases any static electricity built up. When you are done the computer should boot normally.

I cant make my Acer aspire 5536 work

Sounds like the hibernation and hard drive setting need looking at under the power controls, also check that a password is not required in returning from hibernation.

Resert CMOS battery location

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

I have an EVESHAM MS-17188B Laptop. Stuck in sleep mode! The Problem is when ever I turn it on, the power and sleep mode light is active. But nothing else, the screen stays blank, and cant hear any fans...

First advice would have been to remove battery, but since you did that, I'd say that your laptop is stuck in hybrid-sleep, or the old hibernate. Try pressing the power button for 10-15 seconds, the laptop should go off, then try presing the power button again, for normal boot.
