Hey i was wondering if i could get some help,i have an msi m675 laptop and it's been working fine i watched a movie on it one night and the next day i go to turn it on and it doesn't want to turn on.The fan is spinning but the screen is black no beeps no notthing,the only thing i see on is the Power light and the Hard drive light which are both solid.
I tried resitting the ram,cpu,hard drive,removing the cmos battery for 20 seconds,holding the power for 30 seconds,connecting it to an external monitor still notthing.i dont understand what went wrong
Can anybody help me out please?
Try booting without the laptop battery in the laptop. Also make sure that you do not have anything external hooked-up: no mouse, keyboard, or anything else plugged-into the laptop, except the power cord.
The fact that you state that the HDD light stays on, worries me.
Being that you can't see any post messages or anything when booting up, I would take it to someone's house (easy since it is a laptop) and hook it up to someone else's monitor, as someone else suggested above.
okay, I just thought of something simple but I doubt that it will work, but hey.
Your laptop should have a fn key and keyboard combo to toggle through different display modes.
A common one is to hold the Fn key down, and then press the F4 (or some other function key). There are usually about 3 or 4 display modes to toggle through. It may be the Fn key and F6 key (usually shows a sort of monitor icon on the key).
pfft..man this sucks.im not too worried though cause i got this laptop from sombody the gpu was overheating alot up to 65c even though i cleaned out the dust and had a fan running next to it,im guessing thats what failed.
guess i'll save up and buy something newer
