Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Hi-Grade VA250D - lights on but no post to screen ??
\015 My VA250D when powered on has all the lights come on and stay on (power, wifi & 3 other lights), fan spins, but can't get the bios to post to screen or an external monitor. I can't use the power socket at the moment as it needs replacing, but the battery I'm testing it with is good (have used on another machine). I'm testing with no cd/rom or hdd installed. Memory seems to seat okay.\015\012Any suggestions would be much appreciated :o) - there doesn't seem to be much help on this model on the internet ?!!\015\012Many thanks x\015
There are lots of VA250D on ebay with this exact problem. I have a working one and picked up a dead one to repair. I thought it was a corrupt BIOS but swapping the flash IC from the working laptop (not easy to do) did not fix it. Nor did swapping the processor make a difference. So looking for a solution myself but looks unlikely it is a simple BIOS corruption issue.
