Posibly in Hibination

I have a toshiba 1710cds and I use winxp I left the computer on as I was looking at a page for contact info. Some time later perhaps 2 to 3hrs I remembered that I did not turn off the computer so I tried to get up the system but to no avail. I did remove the power source and the batery but still no joy I do have a green light on the front indicating that it is on and a amber light flashing for the battery. I do not know the details of the function keys and if the key is there I need info for the use of these keys. But can you give me some advice. Thanks

Does the system power on at all? (Fans spinning, CD-Drive clicks, etc.)

1.) If so, try removing the battery and unplugging the wall power. Hold down the power button for 10 seconds, plug everything back in, and try it again. If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged (no battery no wall plug) for a day, and then try it again.

2.) If not, try unplugging the wall jack and the battery, and then try booting the system after plugging in JUST the wall jack (leaving the battery out.)

I have a toshiba satellite a205-4707 when i got it it would freeze at startup i had a ancient copy of xp pro sp1 i could only install with power cord unplugged.even after install if i plugged in power cord...
get this from my shared drive(read instructions in there)

and wipe your disk clean (Warning...this process will make you lose all data on disk so be careful, if posible backup all critical data that you need)
once done install WinXP SP3(get a Windows XP cd from a friend or download a pirated copy from net) look for "WinXP SP3 piratebay" in google

when installing WinXP make more than 2 partitions (C, D, E)
Install WinXP in C
once done, let Windows boot and show Desktop
install WinVista or Win7 in D
use E for saving your critical data
