Customer Question
My laptop computer died...

My laptop computer died last night, it just went blank, with no power indicator showing (it was plugged in). I left it until this morning. It showed a sign of life (the keypad briefly lit), then died again. I've been trying to find a replct Li-Ion battery pack, A42-G750.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your laptop?

MS Win8.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried rebooting from a DVD or flash drive?

No-i don't have anything bootable.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

It doesnt appear that it is powered at all-so I don't think an external boot would even start,

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
