Something really weird has happened to my computer.
I was working on my computer (surfing the net, IMing, and using skype) when all of a sudden it froze.
The only programs running were Microsoft Word, Mozilla, Steam (just for chatting) and Skype so it was not taxing the system. After doing a force shutdown (holding the power button for ~10 seconds) I tried to reboot it. All that happens now is the light used to show the battery is being charged flashes 3 times. I tried taking out the laptops battery and directly running it from but power cable but that doesn't work.
I have a trial version of the Kaspersky Internet Security Suite which was updated and running at the time of the crash so I don't think it was a virus and there were no files I was running at the time of the crash.
My laptop is an HP dv8000 (8220us to be specific)
AMD Turion 64 processor @ 2.0 ghz
512 MB of RAM
2 80 gig hard drives
ATI 200M Radeon xpress video card using the version 7.7 drivers
If there is anything else I can post let me know.
Thanks in advance!
