Hi ppl,I have an old presario1925 which I thought had broken down,didn't show any power lights and battery charge,anyhow I stripped it down,took out the coin battery,crossed the two f37s.supposed to clear the password,put it all back again, I stripped the power conecter input jack,Bingo, a very fine wire was busted,sorted it,fired up,no image on screen,although a much brighter screen now,tried a boot disk no deal,I'm sure I think it is running cause when I press enter for a wee time I get the dingalings,any ideas anyone,thanks for looking,GOB.

Check the connection to the screen is push right in

Connect a external screen and see if it works

Plug in an external monitor
you may need a key combination to activate it (Fn+F5)
if external moitor works thaen you have a screen problem.

Check "lid closed switch" is not stuck as this would also disable the screen.

Suspect you have an invertor or backlight failure
