I have a Toshiba laptop that was purchased in Dec 2004, that has given me more trouble than it's worth. About 7 or 8 months ago, the battery died while I was out and about, so when I got home, I plugged it in, waited a little while and turned it on. The power lights were all on and the internal fan would run for about 4 seconds then stop. The screen would remain black. Sometimes, if I waited a couple of minutes, it would start up. Sometimes, it'd be days before Windows would load. I sent it off to be fixed (as I have a warranty with it) and they sent it back about 3 weeks ago. They repaired the mother board (which has already been replaced once) and said that some of my problems were caused by software that has been installed. Last night, it was on and I used it for a while (unplugged). When I got ready to go to bed, I plugged it back in, set it down, and it died. It hadn't been off the charger for 30 minutes, and it died! I tried to turn it back on and yet again, only the power lights are on (and the battery was charged last night when it died because even off the charger, the power lights were illuminated). I left it to load all night, and it has still not loaded. Any suggestions on a repair? I am clueless as to why this is occurring. Please help!!!!!!

Hi jsndrfd, can I ask what opertating system you are using? I would be running XP if possible but it depends on you finances.
