Hello!

Today I went out for a walk...I left my $1000US HASEE notebook sitting on my desk in the sunlight with the power on plugged in at the wall.

I came back an hour later to find it turned off, strange - i thought. I turn it on and suddenly I hear a spark and then see smoke coming out from the top right part of my laptop, right where the power is connected.

I quickly turn it off, and am unable to turn it back on. Now when I plug in the power no lights turn on (on the notebook) as they usually do. I can't turn on my laptop, I cannot charge it. And interestingly the green light on my charger starts flashing whenever I plug it in.

I bought this laptop only 7-8 months ago. What's happened? What should I do?

Note: I've not done any overclocking. Oh, and leaving it in the sun probably wasn't the best of ideas.

if it's only 7-8 months old you may wish to send it in under warranty even though you left it in direct sunlight that spark to me sounds like something shorted out or you blow a capacitor.
