Today I have a few things I want to address and ask as well, I hope you all can help me to the best of your ability because I always appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
First, my laptop turned off last night and wouldn't turn back on. It was fully charge and always tethered. I took the battery out and turn the laptop on just tethered and nothing happened. I'm wondering what might of went wrong, and why the situation just now occurred? There were no signs of any damage or overheating of any sort. I can still not get the laptop to turn on and I've let it sit in the corner for 24 hours.
Much feedback is appreciated.
Secondly, I want to buy my first Gaming PC. My budget is a bit low, but that is okay because I'm not asking for demanding games. I want to be able to play Minecraft, Combat Arms, and Runescape flawlessly without any issues. I also want to be able to record my gameplays with Fraps without severe lag, preferably 60-70FPS.
I want the CPU to be brand new, custom built or manufactured. I'm not too picky on the place I have to buy it, I've been searching Ebay mostly but Newegg as well. I'm hoping to get a PC that will preform perfectly when multi-tasking and run games smoothly, all for a reasonable price.
Staying within your price range and getting the features you are desiring is tricky at best. I think your best bet is to look at pre-builts and see what's the best deal you can score on Black Friday.
The only suggestion I gan give here is to find a unit with the best dedicated graphics card that falls within your budget - a dual core processor should be okay.
$800 is definately a workable amount but... I'm going to suggest you start your thread here (if you haven't already) - you should get far better recommendations and more options than you'll get from this section http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum-31.html
well first thing is backup ALL data on the laptop
this was a fix yes, but it could last years or days
as to the mechanics of the fix, my theory is you bleed all electricity out
and i have seen this problem MANY times over the years and it is the first thing we do when diagnosing laptops
