Powers on but no picture

Hi Pyrhyc,

I am helping a friend with his laptop. It powers on but no picture on screen, dont hear the HD, but the fan spins. The power plug LED is on and on/off LED blinks.

Any troubleshooting tips you can give me.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hello Guest,


    Apparently, with that model there is a IC that needs re-sodering.  Take it to a local pc repair shop and ask them if there are aware of it.  If so, they may know how to fix it.

Gateway 8708 computer fan stars and powers on but no display


Computer does not boot upThe problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needsreseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

Hi there, when I switch on my Compaq 6720s it powers up (you can hear the fan spin) then powers off immediately (LEDS go off) I have tried known good ram. Thanks


Have you checked that the power supply is giving charge to the computer, sounds like it's trying to run on battery power, but if the 'power brick' isn'rt working properly, this can give the symptoms you describe

Hi, I have recieved a used laptop from a friend.It is an Acer Aspire 1690LCi ZL3. The unit powers on,battery is good,DVD drive opens but the screen is dead.Please help. Sam


A few things to try. First turn on the unit, and after it seems to have booted up (like at a windows login or something), take a flashlight and in a darkened room shine it on the screen. If you can see a picture, it means your backlight is out. Go on ebay or elsewhere online and look for an acer aspire 1690LCi backlight. Then open up your screen and replace it (there should be tutorials online for this). If you don't see an image, your screen maybe be out or have more serious problems (video card, LCD dead, etc.).

Dell XPS M140 laptop shuts off after powering on


Most laptops that I have worked on that power off that quickly turned out to be an overheating problem. Is the cooling fan running for the brief period that you can hear the hard drive before it powers off ? If the fan is running another potential resolution might be to remove the processor and apply new thermal paste.
