I am at my wit's end.

 

I tried to wake up this piece of garbage. It is awake, yet, the effing thing will not get out of a black screen.

I tried closing the laptop once, and the screen did show. It was on the "locking your computer...." screen. But that was taking way longer than usual to load, so I closed it again just to open it up and the screen was black and now will not function at all.

 

The thing responds to unplugging USB devices, I unplugged my mouse and it made the normal noise it makes when you unplug a USB device.

I cannot log into it and the screen is black so I don't know what current state it is in, other than whenever I press most of the keys, the damn thing makes another noise. A common one, like... when you try to backspace and you can't.

 

I think most people are going to tell me to just force-shut it down. I can't do that!!!!! I have unsaved work! I don't want to lose it!!!!

 

At this rate I am waiting for the battery to drain so that it will automatically hibernate, and perhaps the screen will not glitch when I plug it in and wake it up.

 

Is there ANYTHING I can do to save this piece of trash that doesn't involve me waiting several hours for it to lose power?

 

The laptop is an HP Pavilion dv7...

Hello ! Sense you have a HP lap top, it might be better to ask for help on the HP help forum. You can start here, but I doubt if your work will be saved in the condition you are in at the moment!

Maybe others have a better solution to your issue.

PS There are ways you could try to save your work, but that involves using a puppy linux OS and is a lot of work.

Hello! There are ways to recover data with software like Recuva after the PC is up and running. I know you are upset, but screaming here on the BC forum will not help. I have given you the best advise that I know of. If you want further advise, you will just have to wait until a nother member responds to your issue.

I wasn't screaming, and I wasn't talking to you. I sent that message so that other people could see that the issue is not resolved. Thank you anyway.

As far as I can see the Op's problem is he dose not want to shut down his Pc because there is work on it the Op needs to save.

Enlighten me on how the op can use puppy linux without a reboot please.

Hello! It is a  long process. I have posted the links that explains the whole process. I have used it before and I know it works. The puppy love linux CD allows you to boot into Windows using the RAM. Then you can copy your data to a external HD. If you read the links provided, you should be able to accomplish this. I'm not a linux person and I only use the puppy love lupo to recover data from a HD that doesn't want to boot into Windows. If you have a better solution, I would like to hear it as I'm always ready to learn. I'm sure the OP would like a solution also. I see no other way to save his work at this time.

Alright all, thanks for the help, I'm planning to let the computer sit and run out of power so it will automatically hibernate. Maybe after it does hibernate, I can plug it in, start it up again, and this glitch with the screen will be gone. Thanks.

Well, I gave up after the thing didn't even shut down when the power got low. I lost all my work. At this rate I do not care. Thanks for the help, all. I appreciate the effort.
