    Unplug it.. take battery out.. hold power button down for 10 seconds.. this clears all power in the laptop.. then plug it back in without the battery.. see if it turns on.. if so turn it off put battery in and then see if it turns on again..

    This happens alot for laptops and its normaly as simple fix as that 9/10 times.

    - Does the power light actually light and stay lit?
    - Does it respond to a single press and/or holding the power button for 5 seconds?
    - Does the backlight light?
    - Are there any beep codes?
    - Can you hear the hard disk powering up?

    so i just started it and everything works only the screen is now really dark i can see most of the things tho and yes brightness is @ max

    no beep sounds single press = laptop starts

    5 seconds = instant shutdown

    yes power light stays lit

    and i guess my hard disk starts up as i can acces my files

    EDIT: rofl @ tf2 on xbox 360 you get 40 stickies lol and soli gets 32 rockets (+4 already in rocket launcher)

    its your back light inverter as a guess. the part will cost you about £20!

    You need to remove the 4 screws form the laptop screen surround, Carfull remove the rubber pads. they will be behind there. Then you need to again carefully remove the plastic surround, The Inverter is a little circit board. will have 2 wires at each end usualy right at the botton of the screen.

    Typical symptoms, are.

    You can see the picture of the screen very faintly, but you cannot increase or decrease screen brightness.

    If the screen is really dark its normally caused by the monitor ribbon going from the contrast card to mobo being loose or the cable going from screen to contrast card is loose.

    Most contrast cards in laptops can be found either behind the plastic casing on the screen to the left bottom or right.. or under the plastic casing just below the screen above the keyboard.


    The powercable to the backlight on screen is loose or not working.

    If you got a spare monitor which has a VGA cable and your laptop support that then test it.(just to be 100% sure)

    RS FTW :)

    *back to topic*

    really strange with both power button as both lights is flicking at the same moment?

    Re: laptop crashed Ö

    nope the monitor's light keeps flickering and my pc's light just flickers if i move the cable
  14. Re: laptop crashed Ö

    I reckon it got hit with a power surge and your supply is still dodgy.

    If that is the case, I wouldn't risk keeping it on for too long :P
