Re: Laptop will not POST
First, it helps to know what make and model this laptop is, so we can judge if it's relatively easy to work on, and have a better idea of where the parts are that could be causing this. With some models, you actually have to press a key combination on the keyboard to get it to display on a monitor (maybe CTRL+F8?- can't remember). Since you have no video, it could be the inverter board, or something wrong with the display itself. See if you can't find the hard drive on the laptop, and remove it. Bad hardware could cause this issue, and resetting BIOS couldn't hurt (remove the on-board battery for 5-10 minutes) of course, this involves taking the laptop apart, which is always fun....
