So last night I was playing Supreme Commander 2 (I managed to get it for £13, how awesome is that!) and at a certain stage my laptop must have overheated or something because it turned itself off. Completely. I was somewhat disappointed and restarted, becoming somewhat surprised when it transpired that my keyboard no longer worked. So, hard restart again, still nothing, loads Ubuntu by default. I've forgotten all my Linux know-how so I restart this time with a flatmate's keyboard plugged in. Windows doesn't get anything from it either but tells me that the driver thinks it is working fine - clearly not the case. This morning I was going to an interview; I had one last check - nothing. Just coming in a few minutes ago I tried turning it on without turning on the power supply, i.e. run the thing on battery. And it works. I don't know why. I don't know why it stopped working.

Conclusion: I find that sometimes I hate computers.

Maybe you accidentally flipped the noob switch. You should check the back of the laptop to see if you've flipped it whenever something goes wrong.

Could be. It did the funny T'm-too-hot-turning-off-now-thing again today. The CPU seems to be hitting 373 K.
