Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?
Put laptop in sleep mode. Can't get it to wake up. Can't shut computer off either.
I've found this works for some laptops. Take out the battery, hold the power button down, and put the battery back in. If it doesn't work, please reply, do you have it in hibernation, or not?
