I HAVE A LENOVA Y550P LAPTOP THAT WAS WORKING FINE & EVERYTHING TURNS ON BUT NO IMAGES WHATSOEVER ON THE SCREEN???

NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED & SOMEONE TOLD ME I NEEDED TO CHANGE OUT THE MOTHERBOARD. THOSE ARE ALMOST $400 & BEFORE I DO THAT I WAS HOPING MAYBE SOMEONE HAD OTHER ADVICE ON WHAT I CAN DO BEFORE DROPPING 4 BILLS ON A 4 YEAR OLD LAPTOP BUT AN EXPENSIVE ONE WHEN I BOUGHT IT :-(

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP/INFORMATION.

Hi

Next time do not write in capital letters, it's equivalent to shouting and is considered agressive and offensive.

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds

3. Replug and start.

Good luck

Hello, I apologize if the caps offended you or anyone out there. I use caps basically to make it easier to read, never ever thought about typing that way would be offensive or seem as if yelling. Sorry :-(.
The Laptops motherboard had a built in video card from what I understood by 2 Tech's that finally looked at it. The cost of a New MB was almost $400 which I thought was to much for a LT almost 4 years old. I also could have gotten a used one with only a 45 day warranty which had a cost of almost $275 which was just not worth it to me. I did sell it for Parts & had the HD wiped 1st of anything that was on it.
Appreciate the Help-Info you sent earlier though & will keep in mind the Caps info next time I ask a question ;-)
Thanks again
