These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
3. Defrag
4. Scandisk
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows

Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and only checkmark the top box 'fix file system errors', then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot., Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. the choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.
PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND KEEP A COPY NEAR YOUR SYSTEM FOR FUTURE PROBLEMS. THIS SERIES OF STEPS CAN FIX MANY PROBLEMS

If the above doesn't work, replace the battery.
Good luck.
James.

Most likely, this indicator shows motherboard issue. A motherboard replacement must be needed for it to work. Since its not even posting nor even showing BIOS, that is the last thing you can do.

You might be able to verify by taking a fairly bright flashlight and aiminig across your screen when it does shut off. If you can see the image, it's probably the inverter.

If you've tried an external monitor and it does the same thing, it's probably the video card (hopefully yours is the replaceable kind.)

Six screws on the bezel and carefully pop it off. The inverter is on the bottom of the screen. I just replaced a broken screen on that exact model.

Hi,
You should be able to restore the system from the recovery partition on that model laptop.
Shut down the system. Then start it up. Right after pushing the power button to start it, hold down the CTRL and keep tapping the F11 key(for XP). If you have Vista just tap on F8(no need to hold down CTRL). A symantec recovery application (PC Restore) window will start up. just follow the instructions on the window.


Regards.

Did you check your power management settings?

Have you tried cycling through the monitor modes (Fn +F8)? THere are three modes. If you're on the presentation mode, video is being sent only to an external monitor, not your laptop screen.

Blank screen when powered on.


Do you have any CD’s that came with your laptop? If so, look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. To boot from that CD disk, power on your laptop and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD and then select CD/DVD drive and hit <Enter> key. You can also boot from the Windows reinstallation disk. If the computer boots from either CD, then your Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reloaded.

Does not power up


Battery may be bad on the laptop. Try removing the battery and powering on the computer with only the AC power.

(Usually you can flip them over and there's a locking "slide" that you have to hold over while you remove the battery. )

If it still refuses to power it on, try to note what it says on the screen (use a digital camera to snap a few photos if necessary) and post back. It seems likely that it's the battery, however.

Hope that helps.

When you say sounds like it starting up, can you hear the Windows sound byte, or just the hard drive spinning and CD drive engaging?
