Laptop: light and fans on screen blank

April 8, 2013 at 20:56:24
Specs: Windows 7
When I turn the laptop off and go to turn it back on again it doesn't show anything on the screen. The power light turns on and I can here the fans running, but the screen does nothing. Occasionally, I can get it to turn on, but often it won't for hours.

Do you have a regular monitor you can plug into the laptop to make sure it's not the screen?

Yes I do, would I just switch the output to that one and see if it works?

After switching the output u have to press the correct keys on keyboard (example Fn + F4) to shift image on the external monitor. U can also try to hard reset the laptop by removing the power cord & battery then holding the power button for 15 seconds).

You know the real meaning of peace only if you have been through the war.

It's not the monitor, I checked it. I tried the hard reset, but I'm not sure if it did anything. I'm gonna ask my brother if it's still under warranty and if it is, send it in. If it's no longer under warranty, I'm gonna take it to my cousin and see if he can fix it.
