Hi there,

try to unplug every thing connected to the laptop, even the power supply. Now disconnect the battery. Now press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Reconnect the battery and power to the unit. now try to power on the machine.

You should be good to go.

In case that you still face the issue, i would recomend that you should visit the service center.

I have an xpc sn78sh70 it looks dead i can't switch on anymore

I would unplug it from the wall wait a full minute and then plug it back in. Also look to see if there is a breaker reset button by where the power cable goes in.
If no lights flash and you can't hear any fans or drives power up when you plug the power in and push the power button, you probably have a bad power supply. I doubt you have a bios problem because the device would still have some sign of life even if the bios was corrupt.

Had a power outage for several hours. Power came back on but the printer came on with all lights blinking. Turned power off and back on but the same problem. What's happened, and what do I do?

Nearly all later printers have circuits that stay 'alive' even with the power turned off. Try pulling the AC plug overnight' this should clear most stored errors that may still be present.

Green power light goes on. No picture and no sound. Not even a fuzzy sound. Nothing.

While it is unusual that the power light is steady instead of blinking a trouble code, I still believe the main power supply has failed since the failure is affecting both video and audio.
Since there are now millions of individual components in the chips used in modern sets, it may just have 'hung fire.'
You might try pulling the AC plug overnight to see if a locked-up circuit will recover without power applied.

My 2wire modem was working fine when I went to sleep last ngiht around midnight. However, when I got up this morning, it had no power at all. I even plugged it into another outlet. AT&T is telling me...

If you have tried another wall outlet and it still doesn't work then it could be the power adapter. The other cause is it if it is plugged directly into the wall, it could of been hit with a power surge. Those 2 wire units are very sensitive to power spikes. I would suggest when you get your new one that you plug it into a surge protector to avoid issues like this in the future.
