Hello,

When I opened a game, the screen went black for at least 10 minutes without anything happening, all the usb connections i had also failed. So I held the power button down till the laptop turned off. I waited 20 seconds then tried to turn it back on. Nothing happened. So I took the battery out and the power cord out and held the power button on for 30 seconds then put the battery and power cord back in. This didnt work either

I just noticed when I push the power button with the power cord in or out the blue LED next to the power cord slot flashes 3 times.

Please help, Thanks :)

Thank you
Hello,

Try what you have done before that is :

1. Take out the battery

2. Remove the power cord.

3. Now also remove the ram sticks

4. Hold the power button for 58 seconds.

5. Replace the ram sticks (while you have them out, clean them with a soft no lint cloth and clean the slots with compressed air)

6. Plug the cable and start.

If the above fails, your graphic card and/or motherboard should be checked by a hands-on technician.

Good luck
