Hi

So I am having the following issue with my laptop;

When I press the power button the LED lights come on but I do not get any display on the screen.

The fan also runs for a few seconds before becoming totally silent.

I have the power cable plugged in. However if I unplug the power cable I can hear a beep from the laptop alerting me the power cable has been removed.

I really need my laptop back as soon as possible.

Please help
 
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.
