Lights up but won't POST

I have a Samsung NC10 netbook which, when I press the power button, all the lights come on but the screen remains blank, it doesn't sound like the fan is spinning an if I try it with the RAM removed there are no beeps suggesting to me that despite the lights it's not actually powering on- any ideas?

Faulty PSU or Power connection. Lights need very little power to work.

I have the same Netbook by the side of me, Try removing the battery and just run on mains

Cannot see a plate to take the Hard Drive out, as that is what I would suggest next and see if it would go to BIOS. AS a bad drive can stop it starting up

Thanks for the response all- tried removing the battery but no change- tried it without the hard drive too. Noticed the last time I tried to power it up the light on the power button flickered then went out so is looking like a power issue.

Mains adapter may be gone check volts coming out of it with a voltmeter. It would then flaten the battery
