Philips freevents notebook non starter

I have the above notebook that will not turn on 3 weeks after the warrantee ran out!. The battery says it's charging but the machine lies as dead as a Dodo on pressing 'on'. ... no sound of things working ... no lights flickering except the charging light.
I have noticed it ran very hot ... do you think the power unit is caput.? If so where can I get another. I checked the on/off switch and that seems fine but no power getting through except to the battery...
Any suggestions?
Thanks in anticipation

Philips Freevents X56 laptop won't switch on!

Could be anyone of a number of things related to internal batteries. Let it charge for a while (does the charging light come on on the laptop? - isn't clear if the green light is on the powersupply or the laptop itself) and trying again.
