The issue started this morning where the laptop would as normal and then I'd properly shut it down using the Start menu. As soon as I get to school the laptop WILL NOT BOOT. The fans would run and the lights would flicker but there would be a black screen and nothing more. Only the Lightblub and battery icon are on though. The HDD is not flashing. PLEZ HELP!!!
If the fans are running, then it is powered on. It may just be the display. Try the following and see what happens...
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.
