    Will it respond to an external mouse or keyboard? Does it boot all the way up to the desktop? When you power down, do you turn it all the way off? (as opposed to standby or hibernate)

Do you get video at least?
Do you get keyboard during POST? (Try turning the system off, turn it on and keep hitting F8 until you get to a windows boot selection screen)

Does Windows boot all the way up but you just cannot interact with the laptop? Try plugging in an external mouse/keyboard/speakers, or remove it from the docking station if it is attached to one.
If you get keyboard/mouse before windows (able to move up and down the boot selection screen), then Windows may just need to be reinstalled for some strange reason.

If you still aren't getting anything, the motherboard may need to be replaced.

The keyboard, built in and external mouse do not respond.


If BIOS menu has User password set then nothing will work until you type in the password. The keyboard will appear not to be working until correct pwd is typed. Try entering your password like this
pwd1<Enter> pwd2<Enter> pwd3<Enter>
where pwd1 is your guess at the password and <Enter> is when you press the <Enter> key on keyboard.

Key board and mouse


try holding down the fn key and look for a blue icon of a keyboard and or mouse usually these icons are under the F keys but I can't find a close up pic of one so I can't say where it is for sure. This will toggle enable and disable for the mouse and keyboard.
