My laptop has been stored away in a dry place for a while without use but upon attempting to use it today I discovered I could not turn it on. The light for the power cord lit up and he power button lit up as well. I could feel the fan running but the screen remained black. The caps lock button began to flash and it began beeping rhythmically at me. I did some research and found that I should try restarting the device in various states of power capacity, with the battery out but plugged in, not plugged in with the battery in, and such. None of these attempts have had any success. I then saw that I may need to readjust the Raam of my computer. But that requires disassembly skills I do not possess. What are my options? Is this a simple fix that I am just missing or do I need to get it professionally repaired?
