My laptop totally died monday night :(

I was talking to my girlfriend on IM, and the screen suddenly flickered and went black and the power turned off. At first i didn't think it was anything _that_ important, because it has sometimes randomly crashed before, but every time before it immediatly started rebooting again.

I pressed the power button, and nothing happened. I held the power button down, nothing happened. I poked at it repeatedly, nothing happened. I shook the computer, nothing happened. I tried pulling the battery out and putting it back in again, nothing happened. Nothing would make it turn on again, and i don't have the faintest idea what the problem is.

Luckily i got the extended warranty from Best Buy, so they'll hopefully fix it for me. Now i just need to find the time to take it in.
