So I left for the summer this past summer, leaving my Toshiba Satellite sitting in my room (top floor of an un-ACed house in Vermont) for the summer. When I came back the battery was dead (wouldn't charge), so I bought a new one. Now when I try to turn on my computer, it usually turns the power light on for a couple seconds, and the "battery" and "wired power" LEDs on for a couple seconds, I can hear the CD drive start spinning, then it turns off. Usually, if I try enough it eventually gets to the Toshiba boot screen.
Also, when I try turning the computer off, or going into hibernate, it starts turning off, the hibernate bar goes like 99% of the way to the end, then it freezes. Same when I try to turn it off, which results in my having to turn it off by holding the power button. I was wondering if anyone could help me out and help me figure out what's wrong. Thanks.
