Advent 7017

Hi guys! I have an Advent 7017 laptop. The laptop was working fine until suddenly one day the screen just stopped working... I initially thought it may of been the screen (Of course) but i did start to wonder if it could of been anything else as i tried plugging it into my desktop computer screen and still no luck :( Its a real shame as i could really do with this laptop back in use. Any ideas what may be wrong? Thanks for your help!

Could be all sorts of things, the most likely being the on-board graphics adapter. I'm no expert on laptop repairs but I know they can be very difficult if not impossible, except for simple problems.

An sounds of fans running?

leds lit? Beep as it boots? sound of HDD running?

When you connect external screen usually ned to press a key to switch to external screen rather than laptop display.

Yeah, all startup noises sound normal, all LED's flash.. Yeah the FN button and F4 but no luck.

Certainly sounds like the gaphics card,

had a jolt?
jarred loose?

take it apart and check all connections.
