i have tried everything, but we don't have enough money to replace anything in the computer, so i don't know what to do. i even tried removing the battery and just using it plugged in, but still no luck. i have no idea what to do. can anybody help me with this? i have pictures on this computer that i need, so resetting is not an option. i was just playing it about a month ago and all of the sudden the screen turned black, and i couldn't do anything. please help me!
