If you are experienced or comfortable enough opening your laptop up , im certain that the LCD cable connecting to the laptops motherboard has become dislodged.

I know it seems weird that it can happen but we had one at work that was locked down to a desk and this is exactly what happened to it too.

It easy enough to reconnect , and it will be located at the spine of the laptop usually where the hinge for the screen is.

What would cause computer not to turn on when the power is loaded and the screen to stay black?

Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

My computer screen goes black whe i turn it on

It would be helpful if you posted the Make, Model and the OS you are using. Does it boot? Can you boot to Safe Mode? Have you checked ALL cables? Do you get anything on the screen? Fans spin? LED's Blink at boot? Sound? Need more info.

I have a a1630n and suddenly when I turn it on, the fans run fast and screen stays black. No beep. let it sit over night and on the first boot up the screen will go to the windows xp logo and than go...

Alot of problems with the HP.

First thing is make sure when you changed the battery you would need to check the jumper that allows you reset the BIOS and let you use the computer.

The other is the fan speeds it normally should go a little high not so high but in your case the CMOS battery that was installed could cause some things not to work especially if it supports PCI-E. The motherboard in your system must have a dual video connector. One is on the board and one is on the PCI-E. Make sure the monitor is plugged into the right port. It should work after that. If not remove the PCI-E card and see if it works with the onboard connector.

when you turn your screen on does it turn on. if yes then it is a VGA card problem...if you remove the VGA card and use the onboard one, the problem will be the same because their can't be two VGA on one computer and if their is, the onboard VGA is bad and thats why you have another VGA card replacing it, and if that one goes bad also, then you need to buy a new one.

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot

Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

When I turn on my computer, I can hear the fan running and all the lights are on in the front but the monitor screen stays black. The computer doesn't beep or boot up. If I turn it off and on at the power...

The video on that particular system is integrated in the motherboard. With that being said, I would say that your motherboard is going out. It may have taken a hit from lightening and just did not kill it completely. It's a good looking computer, I would look into another motherboard that has the same specs that yours has. You can get a new motherboard for about $50 USD if you go to and look under MOTHERBOARDS and then look for PROCESSOR TYPE and then ATHLON X2. Hope this helps you.

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...

It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps
