Unplug it ... take battery out ... clean connection points ... pray ... put battery back in .... plug it back in ... pray again .... turn it on.

Re: Dead Laptop help needed

For those that are even interested (which makes me think, not a lot of people even offered ideas, not a helpful site unless its bikes, insular attitude) anyway I got help from sscottab so fingers crossed I can get it up and running in the next fortnight.
Thanks a lot Sir

I was keeping my suggestion to myself but
1 put it under a truck tire
2 move the truck over it
3 repeat step 2
4 buy a Mac


Must obey the sheep dog
