Question for all the techies here:
What to do with a notebook (HP Elitebook 2530p) that won't start up anymore? It's my husband's business notebook, which contains vital data for a meeting on Monday, so he's kind of desperate.

He told me that the ventilator was unusually loud over the past week. Then, last evening, the monitor wouldn't start, though you could hear the notebook itself working. After the second restart the only thing that happened was the frantic blinking of the power led (NOT the on/off) from blue to yellow and back again.
So far that is the only activity the notebook is willing to show.

I tried the famous press-start-for-3-minutes. I also tried the recommended disconnect-from-all-power-sources-and-then-press-start-for-3-minutes.
The result has been zero.

My husband is running circles by now.

Any ideas, before there is a permanent furrow in my kitchen floor?
