Take out the battery first and see if it got hit with a voltage spike from an electrical storm. Otherwise, if the machine isn't posting open it up and check that the memory didn't come unseated.
My sister took out the battery and the laptop works!!! She's very happy. But now I wonder what does this mean!? How can a battery stop the laptop from working?
Let me guess... Dell, inspiron ?
Oh... no, no Dell. She has a HP laptop.
she didnt try to 'clean' it with soapy water did she?!? dont laugh, seen it happen to ppl before. or laugh, she might be completely computer illiterate
I'm sure she is very careful with the machine. I think... :wink:
