Two nights ago, I had plugged my phone into the USB cable of my laptop to charge it while I was working online. I had to go into another room, and I partially closed the laptop, It's set to turn off when the laptop is completely closed. However it was not fully closed. When I opened it back up fully, the machine had shut off. I tried to restart it, but there seems to be zero power going to the computer. No lights are on, it won't start a booting, nothing at all happens. It had been charged for two days before I did this, so I know the battery isn't dead.
Any ideas as to what may have happened? I've googled the problem but all the solutions seem to be either the mother board is fried, which I have experienced no problems with the computer, or there's something in the boot menu that's keeping it from accepting or using power. Granted, its only a $300 Acer model 5532 from Wal Mart, but until this point I've had no problems.
I've got an Ipaq 5550 and it can be a pain in the butt to get it going at first. Are you connecting to an access point or router that has security enabled? Make sure you have the latest firmware for your card so you can connect with WPA if needed.
