I was on my laptop the other day and I walked away from it for a bit and I came back to it and the screen was blank. I turned it off and then turned it back on but the screen wouldn't turn on. The power lights went on and the CD player light (on the right side of the laptop) flashed for a second and I could hear the fan running.
So it sounded and looked like my laptop was working, but the screen wasn't on.
I looked through the forums and I took out the battery and held down the power button for 60 seconds, put the power cable in, turned it on and off, but the battery back in and turned it on - that didn't work
I took the battery out, held down the power button for 30-60 seconds, but the battery back in and turned it on. -that didn't work either
I also put a flashlight up to the screen to see if it was a problem with the back light, but it was black.
I'm not technically "with it" very much and I'm kind of afraid to take my laptop apart too much.
