My laptop turns on but screen stays black. Please help :(
 

 
A couole of days ago I walked away from my laptop and when I came back it lookd to be in sleep mode. Problem is that when I hit the buttons to make it exit sleep the screen stayed black. I cut it off and turned it back on and it came back on, though a lot slower than usual. I turned it back off and tried to turn it back on snd it turned on but the screen didn't. Ever since then its turns on but the screen doesn't, the fan also doesn't turn on.

I've tried the remove battery and hold power button method, I've tried using An external monitor neither method works.

Can someone tell me what the problem could be, I've been reading alot about a fried motherboard/video adapter. Can you also tell me the cost because if its more than like $150 I would rather buy another laptop but I do want to get stuff of my hd if possible. Thnx in advance.

EDIT: Just turned on the laptop and it did the power on/fan turns on for like two secs and turns back off/black screen thing and I just let it sit for a matter of minutes and the fan decided to come back on. After the fan came back on I turned the laptop back off and then turned it back on and it came on. WTF!!!!

Since it doesn't work with an external monitor either it could possibly be the video adapter. Try bringing it to a local computer shop.

If it is the motherboard alot of times it's better just to get another computer since it's a laptop. The price for a motherboard + labor on a laptop can get pricey.

During use do you have it on a couch, bed, blanket anything that could block air flow I've seen laptop components get fried easily that way

Thanx for the info.

Yeah I use it alot on my bed which is dumb as hell on my part 1.I have acooling pad sitting right beside my bed in my laptop bag 2. Because I'm a junior Comp Sci and I KNOW the dangers of overheating.

Guess this is an expensive a.ss lesson

Quick question though, wouldn't it more than likely be the mother board since the fan isn't working?

is this a macbook? I had this problem and I dropped it off at an apple repair shop. How I used to get it to turn back on was to let it sit with the black screen for like 5mins. turn it off, then hold the power button until you hear a beeping sound, which is only a temp fix. sh*t would cut off whenever it felt like it, but was enough for me to back things up just in case

My xps did that sh*t and turned out it was the video card. No big deal except the card was built into the motherboard and Wasnt worth fixing at that point. Happened like 2 weeks after warranty went out

Damn thats f'd up.

I don't know what the fu*k is going on because I just turned it on and let it sit there for a while and all of a sudden the fan started working again so I turned it off and back on and it started up. I'm typing on it right now. I'm trying to back up my sh*t ASAP before it decides to clunk out again.
