My laptop's mousepad suddenly stopped working after I connected an external (USB) mouse device. I tried everything to get it back to work: rebooting the computer, setting the mouse configuration to default at Control Panel, and even the "System restore" option to a previous date, but nothing worked. Desperately, I tried the following instructions:
which basically told me to remove the battery, hold the power button for about 30 seconds, and turn the computer on with the battery back in. Now, the computer is not turning on anymore. When I press the power button, the power light remains off. When I connect the battery charger, the orange light that indicates me the battery is being charged remains off. Removing the battery and connecting the computer to the power supply is not good either. It seems that power-draining my computer as the site told me was the worst thing I could ever try. Any idea on how to get it back to work?
