I have tried restarting, forced a power down and left the battery out all night last night and the problem recurred tonight. It seems like a setting (maybe one of the function-F keys?) for an external monitor or television hookup perhaps? I want to either restore to default settings or fix it however, but prefer to not wipe the hard drive ... Does anybody know have any suggestions?

Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
Sometimes when you unplug the set ffrom the wall power or a while 1-2 minutes, and then plug it back in the problem will resolve itself. The DVD may eject. If it does, check it for damage, warping or dirt. If this does not fix it- you probably should take it to a repair center.
your miracle,most laptop batteries have a life span of 4 years tops,but that if you take care of it,but most dont realize over charging kills the cells in your battery,and if you have it plugged up make sure you go into power settings and put it on ac/dc power settings.and if you have it away from home without power,put it on best battery settings,and let the power die all the way down before recharging,that will give it a full charge lasting longer.but as for your battery it might be time for a new one
Replacing the projection lamp solved part of the problem. I am still concerned about the sound which is coming either from the fan or color wheel. After it warms up the humming sound seems to greatly lessen. I guess I will just wait that problem out until something drastic happens.
I assume you have no mouse pointer.
Try pushing the Control/Alt/deletekeys all at once twice to see if that restarts it.
If not, push and hold the power button till it shuts down.
If it doesn't fully restart, then you may have to start it in safe
mode. (this is ususlly done by tapping the F8 key as it is starting up)
Let me know how it goes.
Oh, Some of the reset button holes are only small enough for a small paperclip to go into. SO these are sometimes hard to find.
