Hi bit-techers, another puzzler one here. My laptop can't boot. It doesn't even attempt it. Here's the background. A few days ago after a few hours of use I noticed that the system time in windows was about 4 hours out. Resynced it and it was all fine. Few more hours later... It was 3 hours slow... Give or take a few YEARS. Its like the BIOS had just forgot the date. I resynced again and would check the bios next time I started up. Next day, came hope from work and... Nothing. Dead. Nada. Was plugged in, lights on the unit indicated power. But no boot, not even a fan spin. I closed the laptop and walked away... Then heard the windows startup noise behind me. Opened up the laptop... It was alive. Hm. Gave windows the Restart command... It shut down but did not restart. Wouldn't power back up manually either. Next day I eventually get it to boot again randomly. When it is powered up it shows no warnings, no issues, 100% stable. I am totally stumped. I have tried: Booting with battery only Booting with power brick only Changing CMOS battery Holy water Holding power button for 30 sec with no power sources I have never seen nor heard of this problem before. I've had this laptop for 5 years and it has served me well. If I can save it I will be most happy, as will my wallet.
