I recently recived this model laptop, and it was working perfectly fine until i moved it from the lounge to my room(after turning it off) then plugged it in and it would not turn on at all then after about five mins of trying to turn it on it made a funny squealing noise then the blue on button light started flashing in sync with the green transforme light.
Thanks for any ones help it my first lappy.
Tricky one this without looking at it - You may very well have a faulty lead, transformer/voltage regulator,power/plug or switch.
Would need to do hardware tests to determine the fault.

check and see if the blck plastic piece on your old hard drive will come off i just went through the same thing and got 3 differend hard drives and none would match until i found out the plastic piece where it plugs up would come off so it can be used on new hard drive
The squealing sound indicates a fault, as does the flashing lights. It's very hard to narrow the problem down. Since you have recently received this laptop, it would be best to return the laptop under warranty for repair or replacement.
It is more than likely fried, my friend. Unlucky.
Please update your post with any Model Numbers that you can retrieve, especially the subwoofer. Off hand, and with the limited amount of information that you have provided, I would GUESS that your subwoofer is simply overheating, and is being shutdown internally, hence protecting the fuse because no short is detected. If you haven't moved and or vaccuumed/cleaned around or near your system regularly, dust, pollution, pollen...you name it, builds up and can easily prevent electronics from breeathing/venting properly.
