Please note that the battery is bad and doesn't charge (possible answer to my question)
First off, I have a fan pad connected to the usb that when I plug the power cord in, it usually starts running. It did not. When I push the power button, the fan inside my computer started up, I got a black screen with a solid underscore in the upper left corner. NOT blinking (I see most of the problems specifically say blinking). So I hold down the power button until it goes off, and try again.... same result. So I unplug the power cord and turn my laptop over, take out the battery for a few seconds and put it back on. I turned it back over opened it up, unhooked the usb mouse and fan, plugged in the power cord and then when I plugged the fan back up to the usb it came on (like it use to). So I power it up and guess what... it works! Why did this fix it?
Notes: My laptop did fall about a week ago, and I had a usb mouse connected on the left side that stuck out and it broke and I haven't been able to plug anything in to that usb or my laptop shuts off. Even with that it still has been working fine. I am just curious to know if the reason that taking the battery off and putting in back on worked is because the battery is bad?
