AIO The power light comes on and I can hear the HD starting up. the CPU fans start and stops. Nothing else happens, and there is a Black screen. can't get into bios, Nothing the Power supply fan is running. What should I try? Built 1/15/10, Win 7 Home. I was reinstalling win 7 in win 7 saving nothing. running very slow. took 2 hours just to do the first part. left room at 75% complete came back in 8 hrs (slept) the Computer screen was black and the power button was still lit..
 
I did use the link, but didn't look for images until now. It seems you are correct. Sadly they didn't include one on this device. It does have a port for connecting to a TV which could also be used as an external monitor. You can also try connecting via USB.
 
Try this...

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.

If you click on the link Above you can see all of the Aspire 5600 or lookup your computer using that link. Thanks!

There is no way to connect an external monitor. This problem has been solved thanks to a 3rd Party software.. I pulled the Cpu Q9200s and put in a Q9300 which was a 95-watt instead of the onboard 65-watt. turned on computer and copper bars heated up enough to cook Bacon. Replaced original CPU. Next the fun part. Removing the battery and replacing. Which was on the bottom of the Mb.(why) Also cleared CMOS. Reassembled and Noticed the CD eject button was working. pressed on button fired right up. Did a factory Recovery and now all is fine. Thanks for the Help. I am going to mark this as solved.
