|I have an HP laptop with Windows Vista and I was using it this morning when it suddenly made a clicking noise and turned off. There was no power outage, the outlet and surge protector were still providing power, and the LED light where it plugs into the laptop is still on. Earlier this morning, it had frozen so I had shut it down, but when it booted back up, it worked just fine. I was running a disk defragmenter at the time but it has never done that before. Also: will my hard drive be affected? I backed up most of my data a couple of weeks ago, but there are new files I'd be sad to see gone.|
I tried the "remove power supply and battery, hold button for 30 seconds" thing, but it didn't work. Are there any solutions to this, or am I going to have to take it to a shop?
Edit: The battery pack was not being used; it's always plugged into the wall, so I know it's not a battery-related problem.
