Hard drives fail quite like this,if it is a mechanical drive[harddrive] it works like one of those old style record players,there is a disc in the middle then an arm moves across,,bisecting and reading the disc via a small [tiny] head.
if it is in fact a hard drive failure ,its better to try to remove it ,then tap it gently,to see if the mechanism is just stuck,if this works ,then unfortunately it will still fail, at a later date but you will then know the harddrive is at fault

1. check to see if you have the PC in sleep mode.
2. check to see if you have a power from the laptop power adapter. You may need a new battery and or adapter.
contact you manufacturers technical support or parts department for OEM parts needed.

Unplug it, remove battery, hold power button 10 full seconds, reinstall battery, plug in and turn on. It should work fine now. If not, memory stick is likely bad.

I have installed a garbage disposal under my sink (Badger 5). It is not new, about 2 years old. Brought it from my old house. It worked great before moving it. I wired it in myself. It works when turned...

Smoking electrical device is probably not good news. It implies electrical short.
Freely spinning cutter disk means the sealed motor bearing did not rust out and bind the motor.
Smoking disposal means minimum of melted insulation and overheated motor.
Overheated motors will slow down and stop working.
What caused it? Maybe moving disposal around loosened something.
Decades ago household items were taken to the electric shop and they rewound the motor.
Today metal and copper is landfilled or scrapped to other parts of the world.
I wrote ez disposal replacement steps from when I worked apartment maintenance, but you are experienced already.

My 98 Nissan Altima will try to start (it will just turn and turn but will not catch) . I held it for a second then it backfired... Any suggestions???

I had this same problem with my altima and it had jumped time. you will need to take it to a garage and have the timing belt/chain and gears replaced. with any luck it didn't damage the timing cover cover. I replaced mine myself but if you are not somewhat familiar with working on engines it is best to have someone experienced do it because your can do more damage and cost yourself more money in the long run.

Fog lights staying on

1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe

Tele will not stay on

I just started having this problem myself.
Try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes, plug it back in and turn it on. This worked for me and so far it's still working.
Someone said this is a "cold reset" and works for a number of problems.

Good Luck.

Laptop won't start.

Those are items I would have done myself to test it. It sounds like some item is bad on MOBO (motherboard) it will have to be replaced in any case. I would order a new battery and a replacement MOBO for that unit. If your under a warranty Toshiba would have you send back the laptop to them so they can repair it. Or have local authorized service center send a tech with replacement parts to fix it onsite.
