Compaq Armada 110 Laptop "buzzing"

  Stokey 14:54 19 Feb 2003

Just had a phone call from daughter (150 miles away) -- she is using son-in-laws laptop, word prcessing. She said it's locked up and buzzing. Certainly was, could hear it (growling?).

Anyway went thru the Ctrl+Alt+Del scenario and nothing much happened -- told her to switch it off.

Still buzzing when unplugged !!!

Eventually between us we found out where battery was and took it out. Now plugged back into mains and working OK. Didn't even lose her work.

Anyone with any experience of these things, what could be wrong. Hardware problem maybe? I know less about laptops than "proper" puters.
