    Tell me exactly what happens when you press your power button while the computer is off. Any sounds from the computer, beeps, fans, cd or hard drive sounds? If you plug in another monitor does the computer work?

Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

The purpose of this is if you wanted to plug another monitor into the back of your laptop, or a projector for a meeting or presentation, etc.

Black screen start up and nothing


If the laptop appears to be working other than the screen hook a monitor to the video output, if you get a picture on the monitor you can evaluate what is working, but if the symptom is the same the video graphics chip or the motherboard is the issue.
