Laptop won't boot.
I finished up some work and turned my laptop off to prepare for a business flight out of town. Before shutting down the laptop there were no signs of any problems. I packed the laptop the same way I always do for business trips (I travel several times a year).
I arrived at my first layover and pulled out my laptop to do some work while I was waiting. When I tried to turn my laptop on it would not boot. I tried several different troublshooting steps and nothing worked. As one last effort I removed the battery and left it out for the entire second flight to my final destination. When I arrived at my hotel I plugged in the laptop and it turned on, as if nothing was ever wrong. Needless to say, I was very relieved. But, to be safe I did not turn the laptop off again until I was forced to do so for the flights back home.
After arriving home I tried to turn the laptop on and not it will not boot again. I have been trying for the last 10 hours to get it to boot and it is basically unresponsive.
