Having problems with your E-Machines M5405 Notebook ?

Turn computer on, screen stays blank.

\015 The eMachines M5405 is 4 years old and this is the first real problem. After turning it on it boots including the Windows sound (tune?). The only response I can get is dim flicker of screen by repeatedly pushing the mechanical switch at upper left of keyboard.Not sure, but the flicker could be "eMachines" over the windows graphic. I can't reinstall the video driver as the recover disk is 1300 miles from me.Any suggestions?Thanks.........Eliot \015
