So, a month ago I spent £100 on a Seagate Go-flex desk back up hard drive. I used it to back up my laptop once, and now it won't power on agan. Any suggestions?

Check it with another power supply...or better yet, take it back to where you bought it and trade it in for a western digital. Seagate's quality has gone down the toilet in the past couple of years. I had the same problem with the one I got last year...lost all my video stuff. Seagate won't do data recovery, just trade in one piece of crap for another identical piece of crap.

Unfortunately I won't be able to trade it in since it's been more than 28 days. And I don't have another power supply.I am taking it back to the store though, see what they suggest. If I can get another power supply for a reasonable price - not a piece of crap with swap around plugs - I'll do that.

Since Seagate expect you to pay for tracked delivery of their borked products - which would cost mor ethan replacing the frikking thing.
