Go on your desktop and right-click on the "My computer" icon and go to its properties Then go to "Hardware" Tab and then go to "Device Manager" In the Device manager, notice any yellow question mark or exclamation mark especially on the CD Drive. Right-click on it and choose update driver. The the driver installation wizard will take you through the process. When complete, restart the computer and try if its working. Do the same on the USB component in the device manager. This should solve you out of that, It means the CD Rom drivers as well as the USB are corrupt or missing...
If this does not work then consider using any software that scans your computer and reveals to you the drivers missing on it.
If this does not work, i think you just have to re-install your Operating system
Made sure the switch on the wall is turned back on, and everything is plugged back in, and try to power up the laptop.
If it's still not turning on, unplug it from the adapter, take out the battery, and hold in the power button for about 30 seconds. This should do the trick. Put the battery back in, plug it in, and turn it on.
You can always try a different outlet to be absolutely certain.
hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me.
if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep
Open the case and look for a jumper switch (usually blue or black color) labeled CLRTC or CRL. A jumper switch is a small connector connecting two pins on the motherboard. Same like the one in CD ROM drive or hard drive for selecting master or slave.
If you find it, unplug the power cable, remove the jumper. Wait 10 - 15 seconds, then put it back. Plug the power cable and try power up your computer.
