  1. hi hows it going, i need help with the laptop screen it went black!
    I could hear everything running , you can see the screen just a little bit but hardly readable, I cant even see the mouse pointer. I read a couple forums of people with the same problem but still unresolvable. I pressed F8 while i restarting the laptop, and i cant even see the bios setup menu. I have the driver cd but i cant even install it becaue i cant see where to open it.
    Helpp! thanks so much!
    may all your problems be fixed too!

    Sounds like a bad Video card or LCD. Probably would be good idea to take the laptop bacy to Fry's a certified service center for your particular brand of laptop.

    Black screen

    It happened to me before. The problem is the on/off button. You might had pushed it hard to shut the computer down. And when you turn it on again the button got stuck and the screen stay black. So use a small pin or small knife point to loose up the on/off button. The screen will come back on I hope. Good luck.
