Laptop wont turn on. Has a solid white light led light where the charger indicator is. Tried taking out the battery and unplugging it and holding the power button but that doesn't work. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
 
Are you sure it isn't on? Or is just the display not on? If there are lights and any sounds at all coming from inside, try the following...

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.
