I have an Alienware 9700i-R1, a beautiful laptop in may ways. Problem is - it has just stopped booting up. It was working fine one evening - I was watching a movie, shut it down normally, then when I switched it on in the morning it doesn't boot.
To describe what actually happens
The power button depresses
The disc drive whirrs into action (but I can't hear searching etc)
The led's blink
Any help please? I really do not want to trash this machine, its so lovely, I'm hoping its something simple ;-)
