Well, looks like my laptop has been sent to the service center for repairs. The reason is I can’t turn on my laptop when the power button is pressed but for some reason, sometimes it can be turned on but no display output, everything’s black but the internal hardwares; motherboard, speakers, DVD writer, keyboard seems fine. I can even hear the Windows startup sound. Maybe it’s related to the power problem. No battery problem though, because when I remove the battery & connect the adapter, the result still same. Anyway, I am using my netbook as temporary replacement, but it has no capabilities of encoding & decoding HD videos. Even if I try to re-encode animes there, it’s freakin’ slow, even snails can go faster than that. Enough blabbering for now. Unfortunately, I have to suspend all re-encode tasks for now until further notice. The repairs might took around 2-4 weeks, so if the repairs finished quickly, I’ll try to catch the schedule again. And gahhh, final exam is just around the corner…. Sorry for the inconvenience caused, guys…. 😦
UPDATE: The person in charge contacted me just now, and it seems the problem can be solved for now right here. (http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-650305-my-laptop-toshiba-wont-work-black-screen) I have to observe my laptop at least around 3 days whether it is working fine. But anyway, that’s a good news to hear & I’m glad to resume the re-encoding task ASAP. Thank goodness, I saved up $100 for the repairs; the cost of the brand new motherboard.
