Was using my laptop, an Advent 7102 which had for about 4 years. It was running on battery and all of a sudden the screen went blank, and after just assuming the battery had died, plugged in to mains, but still nothing.
All I am getting is the power light comes on, but nothing on the screen, no HD light flashes, neither do any of the other lights come on after pressing capslock etc etc....
There is also no normal windows start up sound, which leads me to believe its more than just the screen that's gone.
I have tried running the laptop off a seperate monitor, but does not work.
I have checked the HD connections and ram connections, and all fine.
Cant boot up in to BIOS or anything else as simply have zero screen, and pretty much zero everytrhing else.
The only life the lappy has, is a green power light, and a running fan every now and then.
