Blank screen with fn light stuck on. Happened after 1 day
I have an OQO with XP. It shut down while I was using it and will not start up again. I press the button on the side and it lights up. I can here a fan or something running but that's as far as it get. Will not shut down unless I unhook the battery.

Try taking your battery completely out of the system. Plug your AC adapter in and power on. If this works, then your battery is bad. As long as you don't need to use it remotely you are ok. Otherwise, you will need to replace the battery. Hope this works for you.
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter. 2. Remove the Battery. 3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute. 4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now. 5. Turn on the Notebook power.
If turned on, shut down the Notebook, insert the Battery and turn it on again. That's it.
With an extensive use of the notebook, some times notebook would store some static charges which indeed will stop the notebook from powering up or charging the battery.
Performing above procedure will not effect any personal data or delete any pictures from the hard drive on your notebook.
try looking for an FN button and an icon on your keyboard that has 2 screens on it one is blank and one has an outline in it Hold the FN button down and press that key with the icon usually the icon is blue on a keyboard and is on the F1-12 buttons or on the numberpad
First power the system on using Fn+Power and see if the diags run and you have video. If you have video in the diagnostics, then I'd suspect the video card as the failure point.
Also connect an external monitor and press Fn + F8 to activate the VGA port If you get video on an external monitor, I'd suspect the LCD as the failure point.
I think that you would have a hardrive issue find out if your laptop uses an ata drive or an sata drive and i would look into getting a new one. if you have any further questions you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem. But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.
Without more information I cannot be sure, but I would say that it could possibly be set to use an external monitor. There is a FN key command to switch between your LCD Screen and an external screen. Try that. If you have an external monitor that you can plug into the VGA connection, that should tell you for sure. Good luck.
