Yesterday my 3,5 year old 5920g died completely. I tried to boot, the power light around the power switch lit and so did the multimedia key lights, i heard a faint noise (probably the harddrive starting) then after about 1 sec all lights went off and nothing happened anymore. The screen was black the whole time. No beeps.
After several attempts the problem is allways the same.
I havn't installed any new drivers, fidelled with BIOS or anything like that lately. This was completely unexpected. The only other problem I have had with this laptop was with the LCD backlight power cable and I very much doubt that that has anything to do with this.
Reading forums and the user manual (Didn't find much relating to my problem.)
Hard reset (Take out battery & power cable and press start button for ~60 sec)
Starting with/without battery/power cable
So, what I want to know is:
Where should I start looking for the problem?
Is there any way this could be BIOS related or is it definately a hardware problem?
Any advise on how to diagnose the problem / rule out causes? (preferably without taking the machine apart)
A big thank you in advance for those who care to give some advice!
