After being switched off /disconnected for 7weeks the G5 would not power up when I switched on .

 

There are relay clicks ,and mains light on both computer and display switches when pressed ,but no "powering up " fan sound .

 

Advice from this site got me to replace the 3.6 lithium battery ,which I did today .To no avail .

 

The symptoms remain the same ,clicks but no fan ,and display screen remains blank/black .

 

Help welcomed .

Try disconnecting power & all peripherals for an hour or two, hook power only back up & see if anything starts.
