    Hello,I've got an Aspire 8530G-754G64Mn, Model MS2249. It starts with a black screen, both on laptop and VGA monitor. Some LEDs are lit, fan is spinning at moderate speed, nothing more happens, especially no booting. Some say it's the graphics adapter (which one?

  • Issue#579184: Lenovo Essential G560: Issue with won't boot and black screen after HDD upgrade

    What happen: My laptop was working fine, no blue screen issue, no funny business at all. I bought a new SSD Intel 120 GB and thought it would be a good idea to replace the HDD. I shutdown and disconnected the power adapter, waited a couple of minutes and removed the battery. I opened up the back case and replaced the HDD. And put all the screws back and put the battery back in. Problem: The very first time I turned the power on, nothing happens besides a black screen. I pressed the dvd drive it works and opens up and closes. I waited for about 30 mins and still has blac screen. When I mean black screen, no bios menu, no logo, just a black screen with the fan sound on. I have tried these: 1. Unplugged everything - battery, adapter, and pressed the power on button for about 60 seconds, nothing, the laptop turns on with the LED display on for both on and battery LED's. But nothing but black screen, no sound of windows loading just the fan and black screen. 2. I tried putting back my o

    This is an old A1226 or A1260. Not sure which. The display was black on initial boot, but could see faint light at bottom edge so it appears that the backlight was working. Connected external monitor which worked fine. After leaving the system booted for a while, the laptop display came on and functions normally. Rebooted and it still functions. Seems to be a cold/fully discharged boot issue but not sure where to go from here.

  • Issue#234460: Playstation - PS3 Black Screen of Death Won't Boot in Safe Mode

    I tried booting up my ps3 earlier and got a plain black screen.  I know it's connecting to the TV because the "no input" message stopped showing up, but instead of the normal menu, the screen was just black even though the power light on the console was green.  I did some googling and found the common fix of holding down the power button to boot in safe mode, but unfortunately, this did not work.  I got the right amount of beeps and everything, but the screen remained black.  If anyone knows any other fixes that might work, I'd really appreciate it.

  • Issue#604993: HP - Power comes on, fan comes on, wifi solid orange, black screen, doesn't boot

    When I turn the laptop on, the fan starts, and the power lights come on. Then, the wifi LED lights up and stays solid. The screen stays black. Once that sequence is finished, nothing else happens. Power stays on, fan stays on, power LEDs and wifi LED stay on solid. Caps and numlock LEDs don't come on when pressed. I've tried a hard reset and swapping the memory slot. I'm guessing it's the main board, but I don't want to buy and replace that if it's not the problem.

    So I recently came to South Korea to teach and my computer was working fine. i have two lenovo yoga series computer, one being the 2 and one being the 3 pro. The 3 pro I literally have used maybe 12 times. I bought it a while back but it was not convenient for the size at that time so I kept using my smaller once. So it is pretty much brand new. It booted up, it was charged, I was able to log on, then suddenly it went black and I have not been able to get a screen since then. I've never dropped it, I've barely put anything on it, it was working fine two days beforehand, then boom, nothing. I can't hear the fan going on it either, but then again, I never really noticed a fan noise in the beginning, either. I let it die on its own hoping maybe that would work.I charged it fully as well.I tried the 'press the power button so-and-so times for this' to try to hard-restart or something of the like.I know I have power because the light comes on, and I am able to make the lighti
