Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I left my laptop idle and when I came back to it the screen is black and I am unable to shut it down manually. I can hear it running. It was making a noise from underneath near the fan yesterday.


Answers :

To shut it down hold down the power button. Then start it up normally and the screen should come out of what i expect is the hybrid sleep mode on some machines.
It's most likely that some process has locked it up. Remove the power connection and pull the battery out for a few minutes. Replace the battery and power connection and you should be able to reboot.
