Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Laptop started smoking and now no response

\015 I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that has been working fine for me for over a year. Today a small amount of smoke came out the side of my laptop where the fan is. I shut the laptop down right away and when I tried to turn it back on later there was no response. What kind of problem could cause this?\015
