Tecra 5200 - Nothing happens after pressing the power button
When I press the "power button" of my childrens Tecra 5200 nothing happens, only the power LED in the front panel goes on, but Notebook does not boot - actually nothing happens.
Earlier I experienced following problems;
the internal HDD did not work, so I put the HDD into the Select Bay adapter and switched 2 HDDs (for each child 1 HDD with their own software / games)
computer got extremely hot on the surface (I had tried to open the computer and to clean inside, but it still got extremely hot)
Now to my question;
if the computer does not start, is is because of the internal HDD problem (discovered once in a while it recognized an old HDD, I had attached to the internal port, as otherwise the DVD-drive did not work) - and easy repair is possible
or could it be possible that the CPU got too hot and bust, which means I would not spend money on repair.
Hopefully someone can help and give his/ her advice.

Thanks for help;
I have taken the computer apart again - as far as I could (did not get to open it fully - and cleaned from inside again.
It gets hot, but - do not know why - it is working and kids are happy foolin around with it.
Could not get the internat HDD fixed, I think the cable is bust. Without internal HDD the DVD-RAM drive does not function, so I put in an old 20GB HDD from one of my "old" TECRA-Modell" which fitted.
Guys at Toshiba;
please publish guides on you website on how to open "old" Notebooks, actually no one would spend money to give them in for repair. Other mfrs. do it i.e. others
