How charged was the unit? It is posible that you just ran out of juice. Try removing the battery and powering on through AC

Well it depends on a lot of things.

If you can no longer get it to start on mains power the most likely culprit is the security scanner which was emitting more power than it should have. Also depending upon the make of the LT it may be very poorly shielded and any X-Rays could have adversely affected the CMOS circuity.

If you just do not get a response when plugged into the mains and attempt to turn on if possible first try another mains adapter and then if nothing happens contact the supplier for a repair estimate.

Depending upon where it is you live and where the airport was you may have a comeback on the airport for any damage sustained but even if you do it will only cover the cost of the repair and not the cost of recovering your data.

I take it you have removed the battery to see if it has suffered any external damage and checked the connections where the battery plugs in?

If you are seeing a POST screen but it just will not load Windows then the most likely problem is the HDD which has become corrupted you can try a HDD Utility to test the drive or try reinstalling Windows.

Just what is it you mean by DEAD?
