laptop not loading up

  gidster 17:18 PM 24 Aug 12


ive an aspire 5734z laptop running on windows 7. and ive come to turn it on by pressing the on button under the screen and im getting nothing. the on button lights up and stays lit and it makes all the loading up sounds,but theres nothing on the screen just black.

any ideas or help would be fantastic.

seems strange tho as it was working fine this morning,turned it off the normal way and now its like this. can the back lights just go like that? the laptop is not that old, a couple of years maybe.

Yes back lights and inverters can fail just like that.

try connecting to your TV as a monitor don't forget you wil need to press a key combination (Fn+ one of the F keys (blue square) usually) it may be worth cycling through these key options as it may be in external screen mode anyway.
