Just a thought. State Farm insures my laptop for $30 a year ($30 is the minimum yearly payment; actually I pay $70 a year for 3 laptops). Anything happens to it, even if you get bored and play fisbee with it, they fix or replace it.

Matching peices of hardware in a notebook can be difficult, but it does sound as though the CPU has failed, and at $450 for a repair, its worth spending a liitle extra for a higher spec new notebook.

The display of my laptop is not working when i switch it on the backlight glows but nothing appears on the screen it doesn't even boot.

It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS you are using? Try a hard restart , remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, etc., unplug , remove battery, leave battery out, plug in , reboot. Describe what happens, Fan spins? LED's blink? HDD spins up? Sound? Anything on screen? Have you tried a System Restore/Recovery? You can start by removing the HDD and testing it, if you done have a USB to sata/ide adapter take it to a Qualified Computer Tech.

I've got an Acer Travelmate 292LMI. My problem is: the notebook starts (leds on) for only a few seconds (I can see the acer display that preceeds the boot) but immediately it is dead. Only the AC leds...

It could be an overheating CPU problem.
When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

My Gateway M675 notebook has not been used hard or all that often. I pulled it out today, turned it on and it did not boot. The power light and the battery charging light came on, but the HD did not...

The BIOS battery may have been drained out because the only time it charges is when the laptop is powered on. Check the BIOS battery - you might need to replace it.

Dell D600 won't boot

I am sure Not the CPU or fan problem. Follow the below step to repair it.
1. Just press the power button 5 seconds or more to see the laptop can reboot or not. 2. replug the memory modules. 3. maybe the power supply device failed that the electronic volt is not enough to boot the laptop. Just replace a new Dell latitude d600 battery power supply.

My vaio pcg-k15 does not boot up

Try to get into Bios by hitting F2 or Del key immediately after turning on your laptop. If it enters Bios, then there is a problem with your OS. Try reinstalling the OS if so.

My HP pavilion ze1250 powers up, the fan spins, but does nothing.

Is the ac adapter plugged in ? Have you tried to boot it up with removing the battery and using just the ac adapter? Sometimes you are drawing so much current from a bad battery that the computer won't start up at all.

Toshiba equium m40x won't power up

whats happening is that the cpu is overheating and shutting down the computer due to your fan not spinning, if you wish to test this remove the bottom panel and remove the fan and its cooling tubes should all be one part (quite easy 3 or 4 bolts) and blow on the cpu or put a pedistal fan facing it or any other form of cooling that wont damage it, and try to start it if it boots for a while it is the fan and you will need to replace it, i had this exact problem yesterday

No power up A135-S2266

Maybe your graphics card and/or display went bad. If I were both of you, I would check that out and see. if so, then you would have to buy a new computer screen for your computers.
