Problem: Display went off along with Sound.
Tried Work Arounds: Connected to a HDMI TV using HDMI cable but no display on TV.
Things that has maybe nothing to do with it: I installed windows 8 the other night.
First Encounter: I installed windows 8 the other night and tonight I just started to watch a movie (before the movie
if was up for like 4 hours and was on my table, it was on my bed when I was watching the movie)
After around 15 minutes suddenly I heard a mechanical type (..drrrr...clich) sound and the screen went lightblue (just for
a second)(not the blue screen of death type blue, it was probably the base color theme in my windows 8) and then it went
black (like there's no power at all) and the sound was also gone (just to mention, i was using a headphone with a loose
jack which I had to adjust once in a while to get the movie speech properly). The power like was on. I waited for 3
minute then turn it off by holding the power button and turn on again with HDMI (as mentioned above), nothing different,
it just turns on (boot up lights are ok, fans starts but possibly get turned off soon, power light stays on) but on
display, and I don't hear any sounds either (I mean, I can't operate so...).
