My Laptop will just not start up , power light come's on CD trys to start but thats it
Shine a flashlight on the screen. if you see a faint image, its the backlight thats the problem and you will need to get a new one to fix that. But if you dont see a faint image you will need to hook it up to an external monitor( an monitor that is not made into the laptop) , and if you see an image on the monitor you will have to clear the CMOS.
and to do that you will need to take out the battery, the plug, and hold down the ON button for about 30-60 seconds. Well thats how you clear it on most laptops. But if it does'nt work on the external monitor you probally have a bad video chip and need to replace your old one.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

unplug it from the wall, remove the battery, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, then plug the power cord back up and into the laptop and press the power button, if that makes a difference, replace battery and see if it continues to run
Put your original restoration disc in the computer and boot it, it will probably ask if you wish to completely restore your computer back to the original configuration, click yes and follow the prompts as given to you by the program. There may be several discs and they are probably nukbered. As the program goes through the process it will ask you to remove one disc and insert another until it tells you to remove all media and reboot. When that happens, it will be just like the day it came to you. Beware though that windows at that time will want to update. My advice is to turn the automatic updates off until the computer stabilizes, then run windows update,but choose custom install and look at the updates and run maybe 10 at a time. That way there won't be any hangups or file corruptions. Reboot after each update untill you are done. As far as your drivers for the components installed in the pc, when you are on windows update, choose custom install instead of express, click on optional updates and you will see under hardware all the updates for your systems components. Get everything there and you will be all set. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
this is a common fault with this laptop, the only way to repair this is to strip the laptop, remove the mother board, heatsink and fan under the heatsink you will see the nvidia chip this needs to be heated to 480C for about 5 mins only heat the nvidea chip nothing else! paste chips and replace heatsink fan etc laptop should now be fixed, remember to clean fan whilst it is out as a clogged fan probably caused the fault in the first place
This is a problem with that particular model of laptop.
It seems that the GPU chip (Graphics) overheats resulting in the solder points not making a good connection to the motherboard.
If your quite hardware savvy, you could strip her right down, take of the cooling unit and clean off all the old thermal compound and dust from the Heatsink, CPU and GPU. Then replace the thermal compound with better stuff (Arctic silver 5). This may solve the problem.
I had to do a bit more than this to get mine up and running though. If you need details just let me know.
Better still is if you know someone who's real good with a heatgun (aka Someone who's done this sorta thing on an XBox360) that can reflow the BGA joints on the chip for you. Sounds dangerous i know but if your lappy aint working theres not much else to lose.
