I'm having a problem with no screen but it has all lights lit on the top in the back but no hdd activity or light lit or flickering.
Does not power off & on like some do & tried it with the hddd removed.
Something has to be causing the hdd not to spin up.
Tried the sata hdd in my Compaq laptop & it loaded Vista Home Premium.
Removed both ram chip one by one & no affect.
Battery charges up & all light stay lit.
CPU fan spins as well.
Installed new cmos battery too.
Tried a hard reset by removing the battery too.
Can't figure out what to do next.
Also will not go into bios.
Installed a new mobo in it a long time back for the old board had a gpu chip come unseated from the board.
Need to know what to do next pin pointing the issues.
No sound too.
I installed a copper shim over the GPU when I installed the new board.
I also connected a lcd monitor to the vga port on the laptop but still no screen.
Cannot see any faint background Windows while holding the lid partially closed to see if it might be the bulbs burn't out.
I did notice the had light on the frt. blink 3 times when I turned the power button on & 2 faint beeps inside.
The far left light that has the little clock stays lit as well.
Wireless light stays orange turning it with the switch on.
I really hate to tear ir down if a solution may be availible the easy way.
I repaired it for my Grandaughter for a gift last Xmas & it worked great till now.
Thank's again for your support
