  1. Hello everyone!
    Yesterday, I was worked with the laptop and shut downed it properly. I have not face any problem earlier.
    Today, I have turned on the laptop but it is not turning on. I have checked with and with out the battery , the result is same. If I press the power button, a light (power on) is turning on but no hard drive reading sound, some times if I let it with the power on I am getting some color lines on the screen and the message "suse linux installing new hardware".
    Usually, when I plug in the power cable I can see the "battery charging" light blinking. But Now that is also not ON.

    I have purchased the laptop in March 2004 and now the
    battery comes hardly 45 minutes.

    what could be the problem? If anyone having some idea about the problem please reply me.

    with regards
    Sashi

    Try another outlet.

    If that not the case, check your cables and make sure they are not cut.

    Did you have a storm in your area lately?

    EMI is a bastard
