|My Toshiba Satellite with Vista (which may help give you an idea of its age) recently died while installing 11 Windows Updates. At first the battery light would blink on and off about 5 times and not start. Now it doesn't even blink and there is no sign of life. I installed a new battery a year ago and attempt to start up with AC, so that may not be the problem. |
The computer was a special Best Buy exclusive promotion and had Harmon-Kardon speakers that I really enjoy. I paid around $600 which seemed like a really good value. Even thought it has some age on it, because of the speakers it fits my needs perfectly. Because of this, I'd prefer to fix it if that makes economic sense, rather than buy a new one, providing this can be accomplished for a reasonable amount of money.
Any idea of what the problems might be that caused this and what I might expect to pay to fix these various problems? I'd hate to pay for an hour of service time only to discover that it won't make sense to move forward.
Thanks in advance for your help.
