Hi tizazu, If the unit still powers on, but it does not boot and or no display, this would now depend on your technical ability, take the bottom panel off and try re-seating the memory chips (if you are uncertain then take to a good local tech who will be able to do this for you) make sure you are grounded as ram is the most volatile chip in a PC, if it boots then thats all it needed, but otherwise it would mean a possible mainboard replacement.

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.
