Power is on but nothing else

I am having problems with my everex va4101m. was running fine friday evening. It froze up sometime during the night. on saturday morning I turned it off and back on. The power light comes on and the harddrive light comes on once and off and nothing else. If I am lucky enough the caps lock, num lock, etc might come on and then it start to boot up but will freeze up again. everex told me to remove battery and power cord and press power button 12 times then when starting up f8 to re-install. I was finally able to get it to start with the recovery disk in and did get the message that windows was preparing to start for the first time but once again it froze. Any suggestions???

    Thanks for the response. Have some new information to share about the above issue. I have since been able to re-install vista and at time can use the computer for up to an hour or two at a time. But when it does reboot and I choose to launch the repair I get the following message....

    Recovery: Recovery.exe - Application Error The instruction at 0x00402fcc referenced memory 0x00000004. The memory could not be read.

    For some people that might be a great clue on what needs to be addressed but for myself I do better just turning the machine on and using it. I will be sharing the information that you suggested with my friends this weekend and he will be able to understand what you have suggested.

    Thanks so much

This sounds like a bad hard drive. What make of hard drive is in it? Do you have another computer that you can use to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook it up to the other computer. This will be an external slim hard drive enclosure. This is the best thing that I can tell you to do.

Laptop is running but screen constant black

it seems the sudden loss of power fried the screen...or it could be the video card that might have downed.  always try to use keyboard combos like crtrl+alt+del or alt F4 before resorting to such violent measures :(

Everex stepnote screen problem

Yes the external monitor plug should work. once you plug a monitor into it you have to press the Function and I believe is it F5 key. Not looking at the keyboard right now. Which ever "F" key that has the two monitors beside it.
