Question about Computers & Internet
Hi all Hope i can get some help with this as ive tied all i can with what i know as im not computer whizz. I have a elonex web book 10.2 inch I was using it when it froze and switched off. when switching back on i saw the led lights for the power on button and the battery button. But no light for the hdd. Also, i can hear the fan come on and then just stop but that used to happen when it was working too. so dont know.. Well i formatted and reinstalled windows on the hdd in another computer and checked to see if it worked and it did. However when i put it back into the elonex there was nothing, no flickering on the screen. i could hear the hard drive but thats it no sounds or beeps. I then tried it on an extenal monitor and again nothing, completely black, no flickering nothing. So thats what ive done and tried so i need some help or its going in the bin. As i said im not computer tech just someone whos trying to get their web book up and running again! so any help? thank you!!

do you have the dell diagnostic CD??

I suspect the hard drive may be on its way out. unfortunately you can't see the screen.

I understand how smart you are.....however you first listed your external monitor issue then your "core" problem second. I don't believe I answered anything but the first issue (it was a separate paragraph). I don't pretend to understand much more than the basice, but with about 20 years experience with field sales persons and the laptop issues created by lack of corporate control (laptops were not priority because IT was stationed in mfg plants and the squeaky wheel.......)I have seen and experienced some pretty amazing things from some very intelligent people. Their thought process started way above the actual cause or the symtons and method of manifestation as a result. Therefore I must ask you what you will probably consider an insulting question! I have the feeling that you have tried many more fixes than you listed......I don't think a slam is necessary just because someone does not "read between the lines" (aka read your mind/have same thought process steps).
You have two problems!@!!
Have you considered that?
You introduced several "non native" items to your system....something you were copying and a CD DVD (new/used/preformatted/ formatted where;) how are your safety/security programs setup......what do they check....when do they check....or do you use something like Zone Alarm where it is possible to unintentioally allow/give permission to potentially dangerous events?
Your power/no response has similar characteristics to a problem is a common acer probler...I am sure you found that in your research....your external monitor problem is the result of not drilling down for a few ideas on acer or it's sites.
Your "won't work now" sounds pretty simple to a simple person like me.....an acer protection is kicking you back off because.....what...only you would know. Do you remember the boot virus from several years ago that was particularly troublesome....same symptons wasn't it?
Let me give you a dummy drill....remove your hard drive ....then with a windows installation disk or your choice of bootables.......turn your laptop on and see if it stays on....hmmm!
If I could rate problem submission quality based on the sumbitters assessment of their own intelligence ... and.....given your electronics expertise I would have to rate yours as inapproprite.......espcially of I used the same criteria for rating as you apparently use......Touche'.
p.s. I have three acer laptops of varing ages and configurations......did finally figure out slingbox directly from feed so I could watch things like NASCAR and drink beer outside while preparing food that all rednecks love.....how are you doing with dart N on older equip......I also finally figured out how to use my macbook pro...it's almost as simple as ny Mac Mini (no matter what they say you can uograde things like memory yourself) ....it did take me a little longer to get "airport Extreme" and "Airport Express" to work the way I wanted with my Bose system, and Ipod boombox-wirelessly. .what did Forest Gump say......."stupid is as stupid does".
Give me a break, please!!! Even if youhad all the clearances I I would not share the basis for my technical/hands on experiences that are the basis for some of my solutions. So you are stuck with my simplistic response....oops....sorry ...my inappropriate response.
Have a great day and good luck.

If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.
First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.
To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.
If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.
The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.
If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.
