This happens when the BIOS can't find the hard disk. If you're lucky it's just the hard disk that has failed, if you're not it's the motherboard itself the one that failed.
To find out which replace the hard disk with a good one then try to boot in th BIOS - if you can it's the hard disk, if you can't it's the motherboard.

This sounds like a problem with the screen rather than the PC. What happens is, the screen's inverter (which drives the screen's backlight) is failing after it warms up. Try your PC with another monitor if you can and see what happens! Or alternatively, try another PC (or laptop) with your screen and see if the same thing happens - that would tell you that it's the screen at fault.

You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

My screen stays black when i boot my computer, all the fans and gismos turn on..help me please!


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.
