>>I doubt anyone can help me over the net<<
I'm sorry to say that truer words have never been spoken.
I have a laptop as stated above that has just stopped working while I was on it and now refuses to turn back on.
I was working on a word document on my WIN95 laptop and not saving my work or doing anything at the time to cause it to do this. The laptop just went blank... there was no crakle or anything. I can now not turn it on, recharge the battery or run the laptop off A/C or D/C power or both... it has just died.
I doubt anyone can help me over the net, but if you can that would be great!
P.S: Yes, I have tried the hardrive in a different laptop and that still works. Something is wrong inside.
