It won't let me turn it off to try and put it into safe mode, the power button won't turn it off. Please help! Oh, and Merry Christmas :)

Re: Can't turn it off

Hi, ok you only have a few options
hold the power button in for about 10seconds should turn it off.
if it dont then you can remove the battery from the laptop by turning it upside down and theres a slide button to remove it. if you use the laptop on the mains without the battery, all you need to do is pull out the mains cable and it will go off.
to fix problem, go into safe mode, click run, type msconfig. click start up on top right, and untick anything that you dont need loading on startup (if you disable the wrong one it wont do any damage, as long as u only untick ones in that start up group.

Have a nice new year

I am trying to rip cds onto computer but it is saying i need cd drive is this something i have to buy or does it need activated

Hi. I think if your machine has no DVD or an Optical drive installed then you have to purchased one because you could RIP any CD or DVD without an Optical Disc Drive. Hope This Helps

Sounds like the OS is currupt and you will need to boot with your restore cd which you received with your system, and set everything to factory default.
Good Luck.

Power light is on but there is no display

Taking out the battery would do just as much harm as holding the power button down would. This could make you lose some memory or even corrupt important files. But if you have truly tried everything else (even holding the power button down until it shut off) and it still did not shut off then you would need to take the battery out to be able to try and fix it.
If possible, I would take it to a computer shop to avoid the possible corruption of your important files.
