I had a Dell that did that once or twice. If you unplug the power, remove the battery, wait a minute, put the battery back in, and re-start...it should do the trick.

Not always good to hard-shutdown/reboot a system...but sometimes it needs to be done. Doing this is no different them unplugging a desktop. Cutting all power and rebooting to see if Windows reports any errors.

You can always run CHKDSK after the reboot to check the disk integrity as well.

I tried unpluging and taking out the battery, every time I press the power button, the led of the HDD flashes like it is not working or on sleep mode but it won't come out or the screen doesn't light up. I tried CTRL+ALT+DEL and tried with tab to possibly move the cursor on a restart button or shut down and I pushed every key on my keyboard.

I tried locating the clock battery but I did not want to unscrew all the computer not knowing if I'll be able to fix it after.

I tried putting in a CD with a OS on it so it would open up and give me a chance to at least format the HDD. Did not work!!!....

The screen is black and even if I try to do it blind by using the shorcut key, either I'm not doing the right combination or it doesn't even see that. I'm blinded from my computer.

I really don't know what to do!

Help!
