Try powering it on without the battery in (with the power plugged in). Are the results different?

    Unfortunately it sounds like you have a problem with the system board. I would take it in to a shop for a diagnosis before buying one, but all signs point to something wrong on the main board.

White screen with black vertical hypen lines???

Hi, you should get an update for your graphics driver and the Bios update. After the updates for the driver. Do a hard reset. To do a hard reset. We need to shutdown the notebook. Remove the battery. Remove the power cord. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Do not expect the turn on. That would be weird. Actually we are trying to reset something internally. After this. Test if the issue goes away. Hope this helps!

Cant See Post

The 2 beeps are an error code. It can mean a couple of things; 1. Bad or improperly seated RAM; or 2. Bad or improperly seated video card. The F2 option will take you into bios setup. But I would try the video card option first as it is the usual culprit in this situation. Hope this helps & please rate this solution fixya. Thanks.

Blank screen on start up

It means that your system cannot detect Windows on your hard drive. Check the connections inside if you can. If everything is connected properly, then your hard drive is probably is at fault. You can do a disk check in dos but may not be accurate.
