I hope I'm posting this in the right place.
I have a E machine 410 2.4 gb hz 512 ram running windows XP and it has been giving me grief over the last year on and off. Crashing and freezing but I've always been able to recover from it. I have had a virus or two that Norton IS has fixed or quarantined but last month decided that Norton was too costly and let it run to its expiry date. I decided to install a free virus protection and installed it before Norton had run out but should have known they wouldn't get on and had to uninstall the new one. (I don't know if any of this is relevant but thought I'd mention it)Then Yesterday it kept freezing and everytime I went to turn it off the front switch seemed strange and I thought I'd turned it off and it came back on and other strange things. The next time it I couldn't turn it off at the front switch as nothing would happen so I turned it off at the wall socket and now horror of all horrors it won't come on at all. The front switch feels different but no amount of pressing it will produce even a glimmer of life. I have tried a new lead in the hope that it had fused but that didn't work.HELP please! Stupid here has nothing much backed up and of course I need it urgently! Thanks
