Re: Will power on nothing comes on the screen.

Probably a bad inverter board, LCD screens have a hi-voltage board to drive the lamps that display the image.

you can go here and get the Inverter repaired

hope this helps
thanks for your rating

My IBM T40 2373 will not start up, what is the problem and how do I fix it? When plugged in to power, the battery light is visible but nothing happens when I push the start button.

hi, you need to give more information, how far does it go to booting before it stops. What is the last thing you see on the screen, does it keep restarting? When you switch it on does nothing happen? Does it display any lights if it does not start. Please collect more information and resubmit.

Laptop acts like it will strat but will not come on

Are there lights that come on but nothing showing up on the screen? More info needed.
Can you hear the laptop running?
Take out battery but leave the power supply plugged in and then try to startup.
If the lights come on and still no image on screen hold the power button down for 1 minute not letting up with the battery out, the power unplgged from the laptop. After that minute plug in the power cable and try to start.

My thinkpad t21 just died! It started 2 weeks ago when I would turn it on, sometimes the screen would not light up or come on. I could see in the shadow, if there was a light on the screen that it was...

Remove the battery and power cord. Hold the power button in while connecting the power cord hen the battery. This will reset the power distribution settings. If this does nor resolve the issue then you need a new power supply. With this machine a new computer would be less expensive.

Power lights come on the fan spins battery charges, but nothing else works

This sounds very much like a dead motherboard. I would suggest you get a professional to look at this or send it to acer. Visit thier site if you wish to. I would offer more help however laptop parts are expensive and tedious to replace.
