    XP or Vista?
    Do you get the Windows startup sound?
    If you connect an external monitor, can you get video there?

I have the same problem with my Aspire 5580 and I almost sure that the hard drive is out ! fortunately it is not the motherboard but you need to buy a new hard drive. Mine is out of guaranty, hope you still have it.

    Try booting to the XP CD, see if you can repair the XP install on the system

    If that fails, try a clean install,,

    If that filas, replace the Hard drive

Laptop is on but screen is black

Try an external screen. That will exclude the motherboard. Shine a bright light at the screen, if you can see a picture, the back light has failed.

Laptop troubleshooting

When it turns black take a flashlight and shine it on the bottom of the screen where the start button would be. Look closely and see if you can seen any faint images there. If you do then your backlight is malfunction. That typically is not a self-fix for the typical user. If you don't see anything can you give us some more information. - Are any lights flashing just before or after the screen turn black? - If you restart the computer will it work again? - Will the screen go black even if you are actively working on the computer? If its not the backlight let us know the answer to these questions and we'll continue. As always please don't forget to rate this posting.
