Damn thing... after turning it off normally before going home yesterday, I accidentally pushed the Sleep button just before I turned it off with the power slider-switch. Not that I'm sure this caused the problem. The problem: it won't turn on anymore. Nothning. Dead. When I unplug the AC adapter for a few seconds, then push the power switch quickly after plugging it back in, it comes to life for about 3 seconds before making a POP! from the speakers and powering off. I've tried fiddling with battery/AC power combos and removing the RAM and floppy drive(you never know), but I haven't progressed any further with it.
If it was a Mac, I'd reset the power manager. Course, it isn't... can you do that on PCs? Compaq's website wasn't helpful at all, and neither was a quick Google search.
Anyone got any advice?
