I use a Toshiba laptop 2140CDS and recently it has refused to start when ON button is pressed.After 10/15 minutes of press and de-press it eventually starts.The power source is OK.I use Windows98 and AOL 9.0.First time I have ever had any problem.If machine is still warm after recent use it starts fine.Problem arises if it has been shut down for a period e.g. overnight.Any ideas of what is wrong?

You may be storing it in a damp/cold area of your house.... Some laptops, for some reason, need you to hold the power button down or if a slide button, slide to on and hold...
