[ubuntu-uk] My 'snazzy Korean laptop' has conked out

Hi. My 'Linux Certified' (Compal JHL-90) just died on me. First the 
display froze, then when I force-restarted it, it wouldn't go past the 
first Intel splash screen (with no boot options strip at the bottom), 
and now it just generates no display at all, though the screen is 
backlit normally. The fan runs for two or three seconds then stops, 
which is its normal behaviour, so this seems like a hardware fault that 
stops the Operating System from booting. It could just be that the CPU 
is loose in its socket. Is there anyone reading this list or recommended 
by those who do, that I can take it to in central London? I shall pay 
any repair cost and get 'Linux Certified' to refund me (since it's still 
under hardware guarantee).
