Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Possibly the safety system kicking in
step #1: remove the battery and all other external hardware
step #2: disconnect the power adaptor
step #3: press and hold the power button for 10-20 seconds
step #4: connect the power adaptor only! no battery!
step #5: press the power button to start system.
spet #6; If the system boots and you have video let it boot and run for 10 miniutes ... then shut down and reconnect the battery....
step #7: reboot system If system is still good repeat step#6
continue this process until all hardware is reconnected.....
This is very common among all laptops especially if they are connected to the adaptor for very long periods of time without using the battery. The process of holding the powerbutton with no energy to the laptop drains the power out of all of the capacitors on the system board and thus allows the system to boot normally once energy is reconnected.
