My laptop refuses to initialize, but fan goes 100%. Tags: Laptops Fan Last response: November 27, 2009 11:36 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share AlexMarin November 24, 2009 4:48:38 PM Hello, Suddenly one day my laptop refused to switch-on. I power it on and the fan goes crazy, at 100%, but the screen doesn't initialize and the BIOS check isn't done neither. Anyone with experiences like this?

You're probably looking at either a faulty motherboard or a burnt out CPU. AlexMarin November 27, 2009 11:00:11 AM Thanks for answering. The laptop is quite old. But great, has a wonderful 1600x1050 LCD and a P4 3,2 GHz, 1GM RAM (the max it allows) The maker is Clevo, which makes laptop for companies that rebrand it as own. http://www.clevo.com.tw/en/index.asp The funny thing is that when I stop using it 1 month I can switch it on again, use it 2 or 3 times and then it wont again. Maybe I should stop trying and use the screen as a separate monitor as I have seen in the internet. Sad, it is very special for me, It has a Radeon, 7500 Compiz runs amazingly well on it!! Another sad thing is that the same is just happening to a Toshiba laptop of the same age. http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/jsp/S... Can't find your answer ? Ask !
