Tips
Something happened to me the other day that I just have to share! It probably saved me a couple hundred dollars of hiring a tech!! I was sitting on my couch with my Toshiba laptop on my lap and all of the sudden, my laptop just died! I was thinking the worst. Hard drive, power supply, screen - which expensive component has failed?

I had a bit of hope when I looked down and saw that the power lights were still on, that told me I was still receiving power. Then I turned the laptop back on but all it did is make some strange noises and the screen was completely black. I tried turning it off, waiting a few minutes, and then back on several times. Nothing was working.

I decided to use another computer to see if there might be someone "out there in Internet land" who had a brilliant solution. So I went to google.com and typed "toshiba laptop does not turn on" or something like that. Quite a few hits came up. After reading through a few, I saw that one person had suggested to take the battery out, unplug the laptop and then hold the power button for about 20 seconds. This would release any static electricity in this laptop. I thought, what the heck and tried it.

Be damned if it worked! I have never been so happy to see activity on my screen!

This also prompted me to back up my laptop as it's been awhile since I've done that. I store most of my information on another computer which gets backed up regularly but I do have a few things on my laptop that would cause me to cry if I lost!

In Closing
