Scroll down to "reset a laptop". https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/welcome-to-the-laptop-forum-at-cnet-352085/
My laptop is about 3 years old. Never really had any hardware issues at all despite honestly not treating the laptop well at all. I replaced the battery less than a year ago after it started to fail to keep a full charge.
In the last month or 2 I've been having more serious power issues. My charger started to not function unless it was in a particular position until it eventually stopped working at all. I replaced it and everything was back to normal.
In the last couple of weeks my laptop started shutting down randomly when not plugged in and would try to restart only to fail again. When I plugged in the charger this problem stopped and the laptop restarted normally.
A few days ago whilst plugged in my laptop died completely and now shows no signs of life whether plugged in, with/without the battery. No power lights nothing.
I like the laptop and would prefer to continue using it rather than get a new one if the repair price was not sky high.
Basically does anyone have an idea of what might have happened so that I can weigh up my options?
