Allen: You say Clicking....and evidently no activity whatsoever?
Is the same thing happening with or without the power supply attached? Is the power Cell (internal battery) charged and previously working? If So...the hard Drive was damaged and failing. A clicking noise from the drive indicates a power surge or other damage to the drive prevents it from Booting. The drive will need to be replaced and you can do it yourself. It slides out from the drive port and simply replace it with a new drive. Once that is done, you will need to put an operating system (Win7 or 8.1) on the new drive and install all of the previous programs once again. Clicking drives will not be accessed and all of you data will be lost. No way to recover that! If you need help...seek me out and I will take you through the steps to get going again.

No sound output device is installed


Check your Volume and make sure you do not have it on mute. If you installed the drivers then the volume must be muted. Right Click on the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and open the volume controls. Make sure there is nothing muted.

You can also get to the sound and audio volume controls by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

When i turn on the LT, the hard drive starts clicking, but no video, cd drive works, but nothing shows on screen, I switched to an out side monitor, same thing, nothing happens. Am wondering if HD is bad...


the hard drive is definitely bad so take it out of the laptop, clicking noise means the platters inside of it are misaligned.

After taking out the hard drive then turn on the laptop and see if you get video. If you do then you know the hard drive was shorting out the motherboard. If you still don't get video then unseat and reseat the memory sticks one stick at a time in each slot one at a time and try turning it on after each memory reseat.

If the laptop still doesn't turn on then take out the dvd drive as well.

If you still have no video then that means not only is the hard drive bad but also the motherboard.
