Hey guys, not new to the board I used to go by Ace777 but lost old email/account. Going to get back on this forums again so may as well do it with a new name
. Hope everyone is doing well, its been a WHILE. Anyways, got a nasty repair problem and just need to make sure everything is right, this is for a good friend of mine and I really don't want to have them pay for a part they don't need.
This laptop was dropped, while it was off, inside a cloth case. When you power it on, the fans spin up in full and will stay on. Get a charge light, no HDD activity light, and power light. Screen stays completely black. I have tested the hard drive and its mountable in windows, tried a different RAM module (not 100% that it was working or not) but still nothing. Tried an external monitor and can't get a display, I have pulled the laptop apart and don't see any visible damage. Finally I tried the power off/BIOS battery for 60 seconds trick and still nothing. Thoughts? I was thinking of just replacing the mobo as its probably the video card, going to try and fish up some RAM that I know works to rule that part out. Thanks guys!
