I have a Dell Latitude CPx J series that I have been using until yesterday when it finally decided to give up.
Though I bought a new laptop today, I would like to get my Dell to run long enough to put my pictures onto my flash drive and transfer them over.
The problem is, I push the power button and it sometimes powers up properly but during one of the loading pages, it freezes up. Other times I just push the power button, it sounds like it is going to start but doesn't show anything on the screen... and might shut itself off. Yet other times, I push the power button and the light comes on to show it is starting... but there are no sounds to the motor running and nothing comes up. Soon after it shuts itself off.
I doubt that this is a virus, simply because I would often scan my computer and I have a realialbe Anit-virus program on it (McAfee).
I just think it has something to do with the thing that makes it start.
