Hello,
My laptop has a new trick. For whatever reason, it never turns on the first time anymore. I press the button and the happy little "I'm on" light comes on, but it doesn't get any further than that (aside from sometimes some anxious clickings from the CD drive). I have to hold down the on button until it powers off and then try it again. It's record is six failures in a row. And sometimes when it powers off it makes little squeaky noises where the hard drive is. Any idea what's going on there? Sometimes when I turn it on its side and shake it, it boots more willingly. That seems to suggest it's an electrical problem, in which case I'll probably have an easier time fixing it myself. Any useful suggestions would make me happy.
