I have a presario 2100 that I Have owned for about a year now... recently when I would power off, when i rebooted it took forever to post... if it even did, then very sluggish until the windows screen, then all was fine...Well recently it did its normal anticks but this time when it restarted itself ... just the power lights (without touching the button), and the mute light come on solid, no beeps, nothing... and if I hold the power button, nothing happens, just those light come on... I took the laptop apart all the way to the cmos chip, took that out, shorted the pins and left it out for a good hour... The only way I can shut it off is to unplug all power sources...
I put it back together and still does the same thing!!!
Any ideas? :)
