I bought a Compaq laptop almost two years ago to do my research papers for school. The price was very cheap compared to other name brands. Almost within three months of having my laptop, I was surfing the internet one day, and decided to take a break, while my screensaver came on. When I came back to my laptop, the screen was blank and the power was off. I checked everything including the cord and battery. Once I turned it back on, it wouldn't boot up. I took my laptop to school so the computer guy can look at it. He told me that its the power button, and that its weak not getting enough juice to boot up. I took the battery out, and held down the power button for 60 seconds, and then put the battery back in, and sure enough the power came back on and it booted up. Well the problem is, I keep having this problem over and over and then one day, the laptop decided it didn't want to boot up anymore. I googled the problem and found out that many others were experiencing the same problem. I was very pissed off about this problem. I even cried about it because I typed a term paper without saving it on a flash drive. I wanted to take that laptop and throw it at the wall, that's how mad I was. I sooner or later donated that same laptop to a computer store and bought me a dell computer.
