Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a gateway pc laptop that is 3 years old. It was working fine this morning. I had to manually power it down because my screen was frozen.(this happens from time to time) When I tried to power it back on, I could hear it start up, but the screen remains black. The only light that lights up is the battery light in the front. Please help!


Answers :

Try removing battery and power cord let the laptop discharge. Plug the power cord in without battery after 1/2 hour. If it repeats the same thing plug a regular monitor into the vga output see if you get picture if so it maybe a lose connection to lcd screen or bad lcd screen.

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 that doesn't seem to post. When I turn it on, the power light comes on, the battery light comes on, I hear the heat sink fan run, but I don't get the Dell splash screen. I tried a different video card. Nothing. I connected to an external monitor. Nothing. I have heard of a lot of problems with this model, but never about the video socket on the motherboard.
