Laptop Not turning on

Specs: Windows XP, 1Gig
Hi all I have a laptop named Acer Advent 7003 (7000 series) all it does is turn on and the HD light flashes on 4 times and thats it nothing on the screen fan turns for a few seconds and thats it. I have put in a new HD in but still the same. If I put a disk in it runs a bit longer but still nothing on the screen. I have put a monitor on it to see if it shows up but still nothing. What could it be? Thanks for any help that comes forward. JJ

i'm assuming this is how it behaves when plugged into the wall? Have you tried just running off the battery? Have you tried running off AC power with the battery REMOVED?

this is almost certainly hardware related, which means if the laptop is not under warranty it's time to start shopping...

the problem is most likely with the power supply or motherboard. if you have another AC adapter with the same ratings, you could try swapping them. the motherboard on a laptop isn't really "swappable."
