So my laptop has decided to crap out on me. Basically means I won't be able to work on anything digitally until I can get it fixed, in which case I hope to god it won't have to be wiped. SO for those of you with commissions coming from me, I ask you to please be patient. I can work on the sketches right now, but other than that I can't say how long I'll be without my digital workspace for.
For those of you with any technical know-how that can help me out, the problem is my Toshiba laptop won't turn on; the power light comes on and the fan starts, but it remains a black screen and nothing else seems to start up. It's been telling me for a while now to replace my battery (seeing as it's at the point where it'll only stay on when plugged into the AC adapter), but from looking online, my guess it that's it's something wrong with the motherboard, or in particular the CMOS Battery in it. If anyone has any ideas it'd be appreciated, but what I really want to know the most is that, if it is the motherboard/CMOS Battery, will I be able to fix/replace it without wiping my system clean? (Yes, I am pretty technically impaired when it comes to this stuff).
