Not sure if removing the battery on the motherboard and then replacing it would help or not. Better waiting until someone else can confirm or not. I know you can do it by some of the methods in your click here and I am sure someone will be able to give you other websites where it can be downloaded from. Just a matter of waiting for some of the others to reply with the details.
thanks for the replies. when i got home to test, the display didn't work again and has gone back to only the back-light on and no display, i tried to see if i could get into safe mode with the display out but no luck.
As the display wasn't working and then did work perfectly for a day and now its back to no display, could anyone advise me if they think the graphics card has gone or if it may just be something else?
