However, as of a couple of days ago my notebook would not power up on battery alone, nor power cord. I pressed the power button several times and it powered up. This has become harder with each passing day. I have removed the plastic strip to expose the power button and had to power up that way. Now this too is becoming a problem.
Once I turn off my notebook it doesn't want to start up again. I am using it now, and have moved all my files over to an external drive. I am not sure what to fix. My warranty is expired. I was wondering if perhaps my battery (my notebook is 2 yrs old) needs to be replaced (if so why doesn't it power up with just the power cord?), or if my power switch needs to be repaired?
Any help would be appreciated. Post soon before I have coronary
