power saving settings?

do not know, anskyber, thanks, but if they where power saving settings, how can i alter them if i cannot see anything on the screen.

I assume you can see the sceen at some times. If you can look at right click desktop, properties,screensaver, power and you can see the settings there.

I had this problem a little while ago with my old laptop and it turned out to be the little button that shuts off the screen when the lid was shut was clogged with dust and was stuck down.
Don't know if this is your problem but it may be worth looking at.

Anskyber, sorry, but no, the screen is blank all the time.

Koochy, thanks, will try that, at the moment it is in bits all over the table

If it is not what Koochy suggests and your laptop starts up normally it may be the lightbar behind the screen that has blown or the inverter is broken

Ok, just realised that there is no HD activity when switching on, so of course there would be no screen activity.
So the question now is does anyone know why the HD does not start? please

When I remove the HD the screen comes on, remove the HD and there is no screen. Is this HD disaster?

Refit HDD reboot keep tapping F8 as it boots nd see if you can get into safe mode.
