Having problems with your Smart Modular SV3170A ?

Strangely, my laptop (Sony VAIO with Vista Home Premium) doesn't display anything when turned on. But the green light is normal and no signs of blinking (it's perfectly normal!). I really don't know what to do... Does anyone have any explanation to this? It was running perfectly this morning (I played Sims 2), when I got back from school and turned it on, it happened.


Answers :

Switch off the power supply & pull out the laptop battery then wait for 30 seconds. After that, install the battery back & switch on your laptop & enjoy.
