Laptop woes

My laptop was formatted a month ago. Right now, it's probably operating at highly efficient settings. But recently, the laptop wouldn't turn on. At ALL. The battery light just flashes when I plug the laptop to AC power, and will turn on but stay only at a black screen. Is this a hardware problem? I don't think it's a virus.

It's definitely a hardware problem. What brand is the laptop?

Try removing the battery and then turning it on using the AC power.

I did do that, and tried turning on the power without the battery, and it just once again goes to a black screen. Without the AC power, the laptop just wont turn on. It's an HP pavilion ze4300, I'm running XP pro on it. Now the laptop is working, but it's happened before and I want to prevent it.

It just started working again, correct? There's a good chance it'll come back.

I had a similar problem with my Dell Inspiron 6000.

If it does happen again, you'll probably have to call up HP. I had to get my motherboard replaced.

This is assuming that the problem was caused by the same thing.
