laptop not powering up - weird
Posted on 2009-07-11
this one is giving me a tough time
my laptop decided to not to boot one fine evening
pressing the power button was not doing anything, no fan noise, no hdd activity, no lights, nothing, dead!
i changed the battery, tried with another adapter, nada!
sent it over to lg service center, reached there, started working without evening opening it.......weird!
they checked everything for the next two days....cleaned the fans and other usual check-ups, sent it back to me
worked fine for one day, and next day stopped working!
it doesn't respond to the power button at all
the guy at lg service center is confused also, as he cheked everything and it was working fine with him
im sending it again to him today, hoping that this time this stupid thingie will not start working on its own upon reaching there!
but i thought may be anyone of you has seen/experienced such thingie before ever?
im totally puzzled, what can cause such a behaviour?
its lying peacefully on a wooden table in a well air-conditioned room with the adapter wire unplugged (i tried with plugged too!) for the whole day
it was working fine for 2 years without any kind of issues like heating, noise, BSODs etc.
when it came back, it worked like it was used to work
and then net day, it stopped powering up again
the lg guy was saying something about static electricity which doesn't make any sense to me as i simply did nothing fancy with the laptop when it stopped working, im using it the way im used to for the last 2 years.
PS. on the first day of this problem, the standby light was used to come upon hitting the power button, but no display or other activity. but after that even the light was gone and same thing now.
