Laptop Power On - Screen Stays Black - Fan Goes Off 5 Seconds

  andantesash 16:46 27 Jan 2013

Im having some problem with my Packard Bell EasyNote TJ61 - I powered it on and the fans whirred like normal and the lights on the keyboard came on like normal - the button lit up. But the screen stayed black. Then the fans went silent after 5 seconds and it sounded like it was switched off but all the lights were still on - the power, hard drive and keyboard ones. I noticed if I run my finger over the touch pad buttons for volume etc they light up so im not sure whats wrong.

I replaced the screen on the laptop the other day and it was working fine until last night and this has happened. Any suggestions?

I've tried replacing ram / replacing hard drive / pulling the cmos for 30mins / unplugging and trying the 30 seconds power button trick but nothing.

Any suggestions?

I've tried the external monitor - nothing happens

I done the battery and power cord remove and pressing power on - doesnt make any different

I can't get it into safe mode because nothing comes on the screen the minute I turn it on

It sounds like a bad connection since you changed the screen. Possibly it was fine until you closed and opened the lid.

I would forget the screen problems if its not working on an external monitor

(you did remember to press the appropriate button to get it switched to external?

mains only no battery attached - no hdd or DVD will it boot to BIOS or error message?
