You haven't provided enough information.
Tell us everything you can think of regarding your problem.

E.g.

Is this when the the AC adapter is plugged in, or whether or not it is ?

Have you tried removing the battery and using only the AC adapter ?

Tell us all your symptoms.

Are the leds coming on ?
.......

If the leds ARE coming on....

Getting no video on a laptop is a common problem, after the laptop has been used a a lot, or at any time if you have dropped it. .
Your computer may be working okay otherwise and your problem is you have no video on the built in display.
Try connecting an external monitor to the video port when the computer is not running, then attempt to boot the computer.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything
Some laptops require that you need to press a key combo to toggle the display to an external monitor - see your User's or Oner's manual for your specific model if you need to.

If the laptop displays on an external monitor fine, you have a problem with your built in display or with the wires between it and the video adapter.

Thanks for Reply

Yes i have used my laptop to much . I use my laptop 14 hrs a day

and all the lights are fine

Booting is temporary issue. my laptop boots some time and some time it does,
mostly on weekends it works fine,

on satuday and sunday it boots on first try and on monday i think i should give it to garbage wala.

some time it boots on monday , so i cant really say when it will boot.

i thought it might be the OS issue , i had Genuine vista home basic came with my laptop .i changed it to Xp and
tried window 7

and I Flashed Bios by donwlaoding the bios of my laptop form lenovo site. i put the serial no. of it then i got the
bois os this laptop.

if this is bois issue , it should not boot at all

or if this is the hard ware issue, it should not work,

but it works some time and some it doesnt,

i think it is taking rest of its own cox i dont give it a rest.

Please reply , your response is eagarly awaited

Okay, but you didn't answer....

......

"all the lights are fine"

In all cases, even when you get no video ?

The day has nothing to do with your problem, other than coincidence.

If the leds ALWAYS come on even when you have no video, you will probably find that if you connect an external monitor you will always have video, at least while booting BEFORE the operating system loads.

If the leds DO NOT always come on when you have no video, you probably have a problem related to your main battery, or the AC adapter, or the connection of the AC adapter's cord to the laptop's jack, or the jack in the laptop the AC adapter connects to.

"i thought it might be the OS issue ..."

A problem with the software on the hard drive has NOTHING to do with whether you have video while booting BEFORE the operating system is supposed to load. No video before that point can ONLY be caused by a hardware problem.

If the operating system sometimes loads fine and you have video in that, there's probably nothing wrong with the operating system's software.
Side note - you CAN have problems with the computer coming out of Standby or Hibernate modes, or Restarting, if you DID NOT install the main chipset drivers for the mboard after Setup was finished, especially with XP and older.

"...I Flashed Bios by downloading the bios of my laptop form lenovo site. i put the serial no. of it then i got the bois os this laptop."

It sounds like you probably got the right bios version for your model, however.....
- it MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL to flash your bios if the computer worked fine with the bios version it had AT ANY TIME before you had your present problems - in that case, the bios version it previously had was working fine !
- after you have flashed the bios with a different version, you should always load bios defaults in the bios Setup, because usually flashing the bios DOES NOT clear the previous contents of the Cmos part of the bios chip, and it's likely the changed bios version won't work correctly until you have done that.
Otherwise, bios versions either work properly or they don't - they DO NOT sometimes work properly, sometimes not work properly.

Laptop no video (or video problems), and battery, AC adapter, power jack T shooting.

If there is nothing wrong with your AC adapter or it's connection and the jack in the laptop.......

Laptop main batteries usually work as they should for a year or so, then they begin to
rapidly deteriorate. From what I've seen, by two years they cannot be charged to anywhere near their full capacity, and it gets worse after that.
They often develop internal shorts when they are older. If the battery gets HOT rather than just warm after you have attempted to charge it for at least a half hour, or after you have been using the laptop for a while with the AC adapter plugged in, it's definitely internally shorted and you must replace it. Internally shorted batteries getting too hot have been known to cause the laptop to catch on fire.
