1. Your pc have a bad LCD and will have to serviced
2. If the blue light is the indication of proper "on" status then you have a malfunction
in the video/LCD
I am not sure of the repair cost but a qualified tech can determine this.
3. Check if you have inadvertently turn your brightness down or put the laptop in sleep
mode.
IF you have dropped the laptop you could have disconnected the video cable that go to
the LCD screen

Sometimes the same plug in the laptop gets lose.
Take it to a technician to fix it. (solder)

The other option is that the motherboard could be damaged.
In that case, is not worth it fixing it because its going to be as expensve as getting a new one.

In my case it turned out to be a weak power supply. It would work sometimes and not others. If stone cold, it would not boot. If I unplugged 1 thing, like the hard drive or the CD Roms, it would boot. Tested the old power suppy and it seemed to pass. But once I connected a new power supply, the computer has worked fine ever since.

sounds like your system is booting up and running due to the hold power shutdown procedure. you might try replacing the video card or adding one if your video is integrated.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

HP dv6000 Lights up but that's it.


Re : When i press the power button, the lights all light up, the cd rom drive spins for a second and that's it. No fan, No Post, Blank Screen. After a few seconds, it shuts off and then turns back on.

That is generic hardware fault, any faulty device can cause the problem.

The motherboard must be started with a minimal set of devices to troubleshoot.

Start motherboard with only CPU, power adapter connected (faulty battery can cause the problem), heathsink, display and one memory stick. Keep unplugged HD, optical units, keyboard, minipci cards etc.

If problem persists, eventually test the motherboard using a post card(PCI & ISA PC Diagnostic POST CARD MOTHERBOARD TEST CARD) to ensure that new motherboard is not faulty, and then if cpu has not been replaced with the motherboard, replace CPU.

BLACK SCREEN NO BOOT ON HARD DRIVE OR O.S.


US has 110volt power outlet while other countries like Philippines have different power outlet outlet voltage of 220v. You cant use the same power adaptor that you use in the US but if you use a power regulator like a UPS device it wont have a problem

ZD7000 Lights, no fans, power switch not working.............


Dismantled notebook thinking compressed air removed component or connection. Nothing. Reassembled most of notebook. Left battery and power disconnected for 6.5 hours, I later plugged only AC power into unit. Fans started spinning. Completed assemble of notebook and installed the battery. Blue lights returned. Problem seems to be the battery. Shorts out something and needs about 6 hours drain out. Works great now without battery, using AC power only. Ordered new battery.....
