Lots of stuff to try.

first power on laptop with battery out.

then try alternating sticks of memory. usually this means that one or both has gone bad.

it could also mean that the hdd has gone bad.

if this doesn't work also try having the laptop display to an external monitor. this could also be caused by video card, bad lcd, or inverter if it appears fine on the external then it is either the lcd or the inverter. if it does not then it could be the motherboard.

hope this helps.

    just to clarify make sure that the laptop is not receiving power when you take out the memory. i may not have been clear about that.

Screen is black


If you're getting just a flashing cursor on a black screen it's probably a motherboard/video card/hard disk problem (probably motherboard).

If there's not even a flashing cursor - just a black screen - you can add a failed power unit to your list of problems.

The easiest way to check is to borrow a power unit and video card from a friend's computer. There's no need to remove your existing power unit. Simply disconnect the power cables from the motherboard and connect the spare power unit in its place.

If your computer powers up it is obviously a faulty power unit to blame. IIf there's still nothing on the screen, power down the computer and replace the video card with the spare one. If there's still nothing on the screen when you power it up then in all probability your motherboard is history
