Laptop not turning on

Hi,
My dad's laptop is not turning on at all. The on/off light turns on for about 10 seconds then turns off, and the fans or drives do not start up at all. The monitor does not come on at all, either. In addition, the caps lock light flashes on and off 10 times. After this, it stops completely.

It is plugged in at the mains, and the battery is still charged, or at least it was when my dad last turned it off..

The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1300.

Thanks in advance,
Barney

the flashing caps lock is a sign of faulty memory...

I took one stick out, and it works fine now :D
