Any tech savvy people might be able to help here. Last night the power went of/on real quickly while the laptop was on and plugged into the wall socket. Now the computer won't start at all. If anyone knows of a simple solution to this problem that would be great.

But if it is more complicated that needs to be taken into repairs can anyone recommend a good repair store (Itaewon/HBC) that would be convenient?

Is it a Mac or PC?

Try taking out and reinstalling the battery.

PC-Laptop.... no battery in at the time (the battery has not been in the computer for more than 1 year) The battery is flat as it hasn't been in the computer for a long time.

Hold the on/off button for approx. 1 minute and then the computer starts. It is a simple process. So if anyone has a similar problem this is how you solve it

what on earth were you doing plugging directly into the wall??

ok, in a hotel, I understand - but hopefully, if you are at home, for goodness sakes, buy a surge protector! and be careful that it is one - not just a power strip, which is much cheaper and looks very similar.
