Default 8300 won't turn on

Please Login to Remove!

I dropped my 8300 earlier, and it went to a white screen and stayed there. I then turned it off, and now it won't turn back on. A red LED turns on when I put my battery in, but the screen stays black. Also, my computer detects it and so does Desktop manager.

Any ideas?

Now the LED is flashing yellow.

Flashing yellow means it is charging. Let it sit like that for awhile and then try to turn it on.

Given that your compy sees it, I'm let to believe that something is loose/broken from the fall, but let try the charging thing first
