Have been advised to remove battery and disconnect from mains. then hold in power button for 30 seconds and then re connect to mains. still no luck.
Is there such a thing as a key that could be pressed accidently somewhere on the notebook which blankls the screen? (I'm thinking along the lines of a mute button !!)
I have a panicking daughter at UNi across the pennines and I am trying to fix it over the phone!!!!!

1) UNSCREW THE BACK OF UR LAPTOP REMOVE THE BATTERY REMOVE MEMORY FROM THE LAPTOP AND HDD
2)IF YOU GOT 2 SLOTS REMOVE THEM BOTH FOR DAMAGE AND TRY ONE AT THE TIME
SEE IF IT WORKS IF NOT DISCONNECT THE PC REMOVE THE BATTERY AND THE POWER AND KEEP HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS AND TRY IT THAT WAY
Please unplug the power adapter first then remove the battery, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug the power adapter then plug it to the power outlet, now press and hold the power button at least 30 seconds, just to make sure that your laptop will turn on.
Power getting to the laptop. Try first to see if this will give a screen image on an external monitor, listen for the sound of the cpu fan, hard drive and DVD rom drives clicking, see if the DVD rom drive will open if pressed.
Then remove battery and AC adaptor, press the power button for 30 secs, refit mains only and try this on mains supply (no battery)
If this fails to boot, check the light on the ac adaptor is a steady green, flashing green indicates power is not fully reaching the laptop (motherboard problems)
If it is steady and the LED power light on the laptop is steady, suspect the DC jack socket. If this feels loose or sloppy, it will need replacing, depending on the type fitted, it may be soldered onto the board, or a wired connector, which sometimes goes bad.
After that, I'd suggest that a capacitor has gone on the actual motherboard and you will need to strip the laptop to check it.
Remove battery and ac adaptor. press power button and hold for 30 seconds. Reconnect AC power only, try rebooting. If this fails, then you have a problem with the power switch, or the cut off switch which is located just by the screen hinge may be sticking.
Failing that, and assuming the DC jack is a tight fit, you could have a problem with the motherboard. In this case, I would advise you get it checked by a professional
First of all try this. Turn the laptop off and remove the battery. hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Plug just the AC mains power jack in and turn the laptop on. If it boots all is well, turn the machine off, put in the battery.
Just out of interest can you remember who manufactured the BIOS? was it Phoenix or AMI?
The error you appear to be getting during diagnostics should not be related to the computer not starting. The error you are referencing has to do with a blank CD not being in the CD/DVD drive during that part of the test.
I ran the diagnostics again with a blank cd in the drive and I recieved error code 1000-0146.
Try to shutdown, remove battery, remove AC plug, Press and Hold Power button for 30 seconds, replace battery and AC adapter and test.
do you hear windows booting ( the startup sound) after a few minutes, if so there may be a monitor hardware problem
Here are some easy things that can sometimes resolve this problem: 1) Sometimes there can be a static buildup on the mother board. Power off, remove the battery, remove the power cord and hold the power button in the on position for at least 30 seconds. 2) If that didn't work- Power down, remove the battery, remove the Hard Drive and memory modules and reinsert them. Try to power back up If these things don't work, get back to me for some more ideas. Ron
