Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

My averatec 3700 laptop is not performing properly. When the computer is powered on, I hear the fans as usual; the "Averatec'' screen flashes for a couple of seconds; then the screen goes black. I can hear the Windows XP booting sounds, as usual, but can't see anything but the black screen. Any suggestions?


Answers :

Does not sound good, the onboard video chip is more than likely fried. all you can do now is try plugging in a external monitor and see if that port still works. You may try replacing the LCD inverter board, but I don't think it will help.
