S7-392 Dead as a dodo

I was using the latop as normal, it was fully charged.  I was just about to (but hadn't yet) connect to my external drive when it just died on me.  When plugged in the power light does go on (and it's blue) but absolutely nothing else appears to function.  I've checked there's not dust etc inside.  It's definitely outside of warranty as it's around 3 years old.  Any ideas?  Or is this now terminal?  Thanks for any support.  A

    power drain: Just check the back of the unit, you can find a pin hole , unplug the charger and turn off the unit. now put a paper clip in the small pin hole and press and hold it for 30 sec.

    BIOS default: After power drain is done, power on the u nit, but as soon as you power on the unit keep pressing the F2 key so that it take you to BIOS page. Press F9 and press Enter than press F10 and press Enter. the unit will restart
