Last night everything was working fine but i turned it on this morning and everything boots up (Fan, hard drive, disc drive) but nothing comes up on the screen. The backlight comes on on the screen and thats all.
Ive tried removing the battery, CMOS battery and RAM for 5 mins but still no luck. Tried booting it off just ac power but doesnt work either.

Any suggestions to what it could be?

Specs:
Lenovo ThinPad E520
Core i5 2410M
6630M Graphics
4GB RAM

If you need anymore information please ask.

Cheers

Hi thanks for the reply. Tried that and the monitor detects a signal for a second or two then goes back into sleep mode.

So ive tried a few more things with no luck. Removed ram and gave me the beep code 1-3-3-1 which means it detected there was no ram. Tried to reflash the bios and hard reset which didnt work either
This has really got me stumbled. Anymore advice out there?

Just did a quick reflow on the GPU with a heat gun for a temporary fix and seems to be working for the moment
