Dead Machine

2008-03-29, 12:59 PM
I have a x41. I left my machine on standby for several days, knowing that the battery would discharge. Came in this morning and plugged in the charger. Nothing. The charge light didn't come on and nothing happens when I hit the power on button. It's completely dead.

Help!

Try removing the battery and see if it powers up. I read a thread somewhere about putting the battery in and connecting and disconnecting the power supply a few times and it would "wake up" the battery and start charging.

Thank you! It worked!

Had to try it several times but suddenly it started up.
