Question about Computers & Internet
If it does not turn on when I re-open the lid I then turn it off with the power button and reboot completely. I then choose the safe mode and the computer will boot successfully but it will randomly turn black again and I have to start all over again! Help please. I am afraid that I will lose access to all my files and photos etc. next time.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Your problem is not a capacitor problem, that is so remote of a possibility it is it's a one in a million!
I Have read all the info here and find Darklord has already posed the correct solution (with explaination) 3 days ago,
Have you since verified hard drive and I'm just missing that fact?

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.
If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.
If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

SOURCE: cannot start up the laptop
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.
Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

This problem is likely caused by overheating. The CPU reaches a temp to high and shuts the system down. When you try to turn it on the system is still to hot and it will not let the computer power on. You can try blowing out the fans and heat sink with an air compressor or can of compressed air. If this does not help the problem you may need to have thermal compound reapplied. If that does not fix it it will need a new heatsink/fan/

Your laptop either goes to hibernate or sleep mode when you close the lid. Then, when you open the lid up, the screen is still off because your pc already hanged/froze and could not wake up at all (usual problem in vista). Off course, hard shutdown would fix it. But actual fix is under power options on your control panel. Check your current scheme and edit it. There are options there that you can select to "do nothing when closing the lid"
Hope this helps
