Won't boot properly or show anything on the screen

My "brother in-laws" notebook won't boot up properly. When booting up it presents me with a blank screen. I'm not sure if its an internal component, the hard drive malfunctioning, or the ram going bad, or the screen needing replacement. I would like to get it functioning it again but not have to pour hundreds of dollars into it. He lost the adapter that came with it but the adapter I have to an older HP notebook seems to show the greens lights when pressing the on button for the laptop.

    Problem is that even if I get a compatible adapter, that won't solve the issue. The issue revolves around the fact when you boot up the notebook, nothing appears on screen but you can hear the computer trying to do something. All the lights show up also on the keyboard. So I'm not sure if the malfunction is in the hard drive, ram, screen, or inside the notebook itself. Is there anyway to diagnose the issue without spending over $50 at this point in time for a technician to look it over?

    How much would it cost to fix one of those and how hard is it to replace?

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Nb 205 blank screen


Is your screen blank when you are trying to turn it on? Do the fans run and such but nothing shows up? If not then I don't know.. but if it is put you laptop in the freezer for an hour. Mine had that problem, but you won't be able to turn it off... ever again... because then it won't start up again. I would suggest to check this out as well if it is that problem. http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f108/toshiba-nb200-wont-boot-492391.html
