Good day lads.
Today I have ran into the most unique problem ever. I installed Arch Linux with no issues, rebooted once and it brought me into the ArchISO so i rebooted again; It was stuck on stopping the job for the network adapter for 10 mins so I held down the Power Button for a forced shutdown. I wanted to start my laptop but all it there was, was a very silent sound of something trying to start. My Power LED just blinks with a 1 second delay and it does that until I shutdown my Laptop.

HDD doesn’t start. Fans wont start. Screen wont even turn on. Can’t open my CD/ROM.

I suppose that the CMOS Battery is dead due to forcefully shutting off my laptop a lot this evening. Yes the Laptop Battery fully charged.

You can replace the CMOS, if it doesn't work, take it to repair. And just throw away your network adapter and buy a normal USB WiFi adapter! (a joke, but true)
