blank screen on s10-3, won't boot

hi folks,

 

my s10-3's hard drive died, so lenovo sent me a new one.  i installed it and tried booting (intending to install win 7 via usb).  However, the screen is now completely blank - no bios post messages, nothing.  The power and battery lights turn on, and the hard drive flashes for a few seconds, but then nothing.  Pressing f11/f12 during boot doesn't do anything.

 

anyone have any ideas?  will i have to send this into warranty support (which is a pain for me as i'm outside the US), or can i try fixing the issue somehow?

 

any help greatly appreciated!

 

thanks...

Hello mate,

 

Remove the RAM and boot your computer. If there is no beep when you turn it on your motherboard is dead.
