i have an asus laptop with a disfunctional screen.

you can see the backlight working. but the screen still stays blank.
vga port on back of the computer still works.

computer also has a boot virus. and after many failed attempt to format the 100gb hdd, reinstall and/or recover windows xp. i am starting to think its not worth th trouble...

laptop is only just older than the 2 year warranty. and the screen is 15.4"

Any advice/solutions?

-windows was preloaded onto the hard drive and
already tried reinstalling xp. it kept coming up with a
blue screen error before it completed.

- we have tryed to plug the laptop hdd into a desktop to format it. but it needs an adaptor. that we dont have.

-we also tried formatting the hdd with the recovery disk + two other xp install disks. which all failed
