Emachine E422 Powers On,Black Screen, HDD indicator black

Specs: Windows 7, /3GB Ram
How do I fix an Emachine E422-V634 laptop that powers on and the power button lights up? The LCD screen stays black. Neither the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) indicator nor the wifi indicator light up. Two sounds can be heard: the burst of the fan at start up and the whir of what I assume is the HDD rotating. The power supply light comes on when plugged in to indicate that it is charging the battery and the battery still has power as indicated when the power button is pushed it lights up and the fan/HDD operate.

Most likely culprit is the power supply unit - not much you can do from the outside.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hello Derek; I don't see how it could be the power supply as the power supply light comes on when plugged in to indicate that it is charging the battery and the battery still has power as indicated when the power button is pushed it lights up and the fan/HDD operate.

Sorry, yes, agreed - I was in "PC" mode.

If you are happy to go inside it would probably worth checking all connections including the ones to the HD. There are several other possibilities including the HD itself but best wait for someone who knows that range of laptops and what most often fails.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
