Hey all! Earlier today a girl I know said that her laptop died on her last night. She said she was using it when Explorer.exe crashed and the computer had to be rebooted. She said that when she attempted to reboot it it wouldn't do anything. The screen was black, no lights were blinking. the only light on was the power light. I went over to check it out and sure enough when you powered the notebook on, the power light came on and nothing else happened. So after trying different things (plugging it in, unplugging it, hooking it up to a different monitor, etc.) I told her I would bring it home to try some more stuff. Well when I got home all that I could think to check was the battery and the RAM. So I popped the battery out and then popped it back in and then I opened up the RAM compartment and pushed on both DIMM's to make sure they were firmly in. THinking I'd give it one last shot I pressed the power button and sure enough it booted fine! The problem is that I don't really think I did anything. I just popped the battery out and put it back in and pushed on the RAM. But neither was loose or improperly installed or anything so I really didn't change anything. Anyone have any ideas or was this just dumb luck?
