Laptop beeps but will not turn on. screen stays

Laptop beeps but will not turn on. screen stays off, sounds like it is powering up but will not turn on. Takes over 100 attempts to get it to finally power up properly and operate. I can no longer reboot or turn off my computer for risk of it not turning on again.

Symptom sounds like a memory module came loose, worse there may be a crack on *********** board. Re seat RAM, or take it in to be serviced. Dead or low CMOS battery may also exhibit this symptom.

Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

Sounds like start, but screen stays dark,


Not even beeping? Hard to tell from such little info. HDD doesn't work, CPU stays cold, that would indicate a motherboard problem, but then it would beep most of the times. It can be a a problem with your screen, but that doesn't add upp with the HDD, and the CPU staying cool (bye the way, how do you know that?)
I think you should take it to someone who can take a closer look on it.

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away
