"It seems like it shorted. "

How do you know this? Did you hear sparks or smell smoke? If so then you will need to take it to a repair shop because it is a hardware issue and being that laptops use proprietary parts and form-factors there is nothing we can do to help you.

If it is a new Notebook like less than 1 Year old, then chances are you still have a warranty on it. Call Fujitsu tech support and they might be able to send you a new main board with instalation instructions.

This laptop is an old laptop I had the same issue on another laptop so I got it fixed. He charged me $120 to fix it but it wouldn't tell me what he fixed or what part was wrong with the laptop. I just wanna know what could be wrong with it. So I can try to fix it myself. The saying is if you don't know it ask.

normally when you have boot problems you remove as many hardware from power as you can. Except this is a laptop.
Normally when you boot and the screen does not change and it stays off it normally has something to do with cpu, mem, mainboard, vidcard.
This could mean a loose cable for power or faulty mem or something broke.
If it does change screen but you can't see windows booting and only a white cursor in the black screen then it could be the following below:
What you could do is check your boot list.
For example is it like this:
1. Floppy
2. cd-rom
3. usb
4. network
5. sata
Best thing to do is to put for testing the hd or sata at nr 1 in the bios.
It will inmediately boot up the drive in stead of all the removeable storage before it.

If I would guess it could be something simple as above and the only thing he did is check cables and the bootlist.

Good luck

Hi,

It is possible that the screen has failed. Try an external monitor before doing anything too extreme.

There is a vga connection for an external monitor (behind cover) next to power connection (according to the manual here).

Here is the relevant part of the user manual (it was in caps in the manual!)
PRESSING THE [FN] + [F10] KEYS ALLOWS YOU TO CHANGE YOUR SELECTION OF WHERE TO SEND
YOUR DISPLAY VIDEO. EACH TIME YOU PRESS THE KEY COMBINATION, YOU WILL STEP TO THE NEXT
CHOICE, STARTING WITH THE BUILT-IN DISPLAY PANEL ONLY, MOVING TO THE EXTERNAL MONITOR
ONLY, FINALLY MOVING TO BOTH THE BUILT-IN DISPLAY PANEL AND AN EXTERNAL MONITOR.

Regards
