I am hoping someone can help me. About a week ago, my Dell Inspiron (bought it in Sept 2004) Windows XP started doing this funky thing. I can only turn it on by unplugging the power source or removing the battery. I hit the power button and nothing. I then have to remove the power source and replug it and then hit the power button and it turns on. Has anyone experienced this? Is there anything i can do. I have already done a computer restore to the day before it started happening, but nothing.
