    Nothing. The screen does not liight at all. All of the other lights on the computer come on. I tried entering the password, but nothing. It is as if it is frozen and will not boot.

Ok heres the next step in trying to troubleshoot your problem.

If you have a desktop PC, We need to BORROW its monitor. There is a VGA port on the back of your Laptop. Plug the Monitor into that and boot up your Laptop. If the "borrowed" monitor shows no signs of activity then try pressing <Fn> and <F5> and seeing if that allows you to view anything on the monitor.

Let me know what you find out and we will take further troubleshooting techniques

Thanks
Dave

My computer wont boot up.


depends what the error is. I don't know why people never include them in the problem statement, it would make things easier.

Usually there is a cover with a single or two screws where your hard drive is installed. You can remove the cover, take out the one or two holding screws for your hard drive "slide" it out, and then push it back in and reseat it if you think that is the problem. Do you hear the system fan? Do you hear the hard drive running? What does the bios message say while it is booting (the white letters before windows loads) If it goes by too fast you can pause it so you can read it....Try going into setup when it boots and see if your bios has a hard drive test. Laptop hard drives do go out...some of them right away. They are very sensitive to heat (don't run laptop on top of a bed, blanket, pillow, or any other such thing that prevents ventilation) and vibrations and bumps and such that may occur while running. If any of this has happended, it's possible the hard drive has become damaged. Only way to tell is to test it somehow...either in bios, or on another machine.

Trying booting into safe mode by pressing F8 while the computer is booting up.
Choose safe mode with the arrow keys and see if it boots that way.

Hard Drive won't boot Windows


yes.. because the booting information and booting files are sored only in active primary partition of a hard drive. i.e primary drive. if you remove the primary it wont recognize the OS with out booting information. you should need to reinstall OS.

This will fix your autoplay:

Activity light displays the hard drive activity, which means autoindexing is working.Also, the disk may need defragging.

Which will also make the laptop boot longer.
