I have been into computing since way back in the days of the IBM "XT" and "AT." I remember 286, 386 and 486 processors as well as outmoded "CPM" processors. All through those years I never experienced a computer crash like the one I experienced this morning when I turned the "ON" switch to the on position and the hard drive icon light blinked for a second and shut off. A letter "A" in the caps lock icon also blinked and I knew there was something wrong when the caps lock key didn't control the upper and lower caps function
After 4 and a half hours of doodling, I finally took the bottom off of my laptop and re-seated the memory card. Back in business, but somewhat behind in my posts. Bear with me.
