  1. Laptop turns on but nothing on screen, it doesnt turn on at all.

    I tried connecting a monitor to the laptop but still nothing

    it powers up fine?

    What could it be? What steps can i take next?

    I have seen people offering to repair laptops such as mine for about £70-£80 on Ebay but i am unsure if my symptoms qualify.

    Please can someone offer me advice? Im willing to try a number of things as need this for 2nd year of Uni (computing)

    Thanks in advance

    You may have to press a keyboard key to enable an external monitor. If you have already done this, the motherboard or CPU may be fried. Laptop motherboards and CPU are constantly subjected to overheating, specially if you place an operating laptop on a bed or carpeted floor often
