ASUS Eee PC SEashell series won't start up at all?

Recently I had gotten some used laptops from a relative and it seems they are broken from previous use, but I decided maybe I can fix or make use of them.
But anyway, this small laptop apparently has Windows 7 Starter on it, and whenever I press the power button, it will not boot up. I have to hold it for it to "stay on" but nothing happens with the screen will not show any picture, it's completely black with only the fans soundings as if it is on. What might be the source of the problem? I also neglected to mention that it is connected to the powercord and battery is when it can only sorta "startup".

hi justabluejay,

I would suggest that the laptop is on its way out and you are experiencing mobo problems a dead battery and that the monitor has gone. In which case the cost of repair and time spent on such a piece of equipment would not be benefical to you or your Asus.

time to let this one go. :)

Ah I see, seems that way then, suppose I could recycle it or something.
Thanks for the suggestion!
