    You may have disconnected or broken some cables that plug your screen into your computer, because if a virus was to do its work it would be very quick and since you said you cleaned it you may have accidentally done something to the cables. Can you tell me your laptop brand and model and also how easy it was to disassemble and reassemble the laptop and i will be able to help further on what to do

There is a boot problem, maybe. I think you have accidentally disconnected the screen or the RAM module cables. Be sure of what you're doing before opening up a laptop.

Search online for the process of fixing this by reconnecting the cables. Or maybe, you have to get a doctor if you can't do it yourself.

I had a Toshiba, did almost exactly same thing. What I think is happening is the computer gets stuck in a loop because of a corrupted driver or maybe virus. It works harder and harder, but goes nowhere.. only getting hotter. Since you cannot get to the system, even in safe mode, to fix it, the next easiest thing to do is to reload the OS windows, formating the HD as you go. There are ways to boot from a CD and run AV sofware, but that's usually difficult at best.

You could try booting off the install CD and do a repair. That might get you running long enough to do a virus scan. Mine had the install OS on a partion on the HD, so I ended up wipeing out the C: and reloading from scratch. Took about 3 weeks to bring it up to my version of normal... (Hate that vista)
Good Luck.

Hello. I have a Dell Inspirion 5100 Laptop that runs XP. The laptop was overheating and as a result, would shut off randomly. So, I took the keyboard off and cleaned the heatsink of all dust and dirt. ...

if the screen's backlight comes on then you may have damaged something on the motherboard such as the video card/adapter. if the backlight on the monitor doesnt come up it should just be a connection issue or the monitor itself is bad and you need to order the oem part and install it.

I had the same symptoms on friends laptop. She had nothing to lose so gave me carte blanc.

Took out battery (to eliminate as problem) plugged in power, and powered up

Power light OK, HD flashed, CD flashed, then black screen. Powered down.

Did the following:

1) took cover off of fan/circuit board (see for details). (4 screws)

2) take out fan (3 screws) and find huge amount of gunk on cooling fins at fan disch. Blew out with compressed air. Also cleaned fan blades.(reboot shows didn't fix.)

3) Repeated step 2, Pulled out memory sticks and cleaned terminals by rubbing with lint free cloth. Replaced memory sticks.

4) System boots normally. Replaced battery. Boots normally.
