Black Screen of Death!
Please please help! I need to fix my laptop, can't buy a new one, really stressed!
So I had the usual black screen of death ie laptop powers on but the display is not working. I had a similar problem some time ago, abot an year, and I tried the bios power down routine (holding the power button, pressing f8 plus shift) and it worked.
This time however, no such 'trick' has worked.
So I decided to do the long procedure; To disassemble the laptop, clean out the dust, removed the bios battery, hard disk and memory chip and left the laptop disassembled for a few hours.
After finally assembling it back, the problem is still there.
Now my bigger problem is, how to know if i have actually damaged something else on the inside. My
Laptop had never been opened 'inside' before. I am paranoid AF! Pleas help me out if you can, would really appreciate :)
Also, when i plug in the ac power adapter, the laptop wierdly turns itself on. Maybe that a clue.
Another also, before (before disassembly), the screen sometimes displayed for some few seconds and then some horizontal coloured lines would appear and then it would go back to being black/blank. :-p
Is this a good question?
