When I turn the computer on in the morning, the screen doesn't power-up straight away. It started taking 3-5 minutes before anything appeared on the screen and over about a months time, it is taking up to a couple of hours. The LED on the power switch turns green when the rest of the computer is turned on, yet, there isn't even so much as a flicker from the screen. Once the screen comes up, you can turn it off, then back on again and it powers up straight away. Have swapped monitors and even used this one on a different computer, with the same result.

Re: Screen not appearing straight away
It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.

Open the computer, and you will see near the bottom right corner a blue jumper on 2 of 3 pins. The pins are J9J4 and the jumper should be on pins 1 and 2.
Turn off the computer and the power supply, remove the little round battery from the motherboard, move the blue jumper to pins 2 and 3 and wait 40 seconds. Reinstall the battery, and then move the blue jumper back to pins 1 and 2.
Turn on the power supply, restart the computer and the BIOS settup utility should appear
3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s
I would not even touch it, if you JUST purchased it take it right back.......if your having problems with it straight out of the box its prob. not a good sign........
If you dont want to take it back , take out the battery and put it back in...plug it in and start it up again....take notice if there are any power lights on the laptop that turn on , or if there is no response from the laptop at all.....
If there are no lights it may be a problem with the ac adaptor or the power supply inside the computer.....
If there are lights and nothing on the screen then the LCD is faulty.
for leaster 2 -
turn off unit, take out cartridge.
hold the hint button, turn unit on.
press A button, touch the stylus on all the cross hairs that appear.
power unit off when done.
power back up.
(got these from the leapfrog site and it worked for me!)
That is definitely a problem with the monitor...if its under warranty have it replaced...if not...start looking for a replacement it hardly ever is worth it to have them repaired (shipping, parts, labor is usually a little less than a new monitor).
