Laptop - WIll not boot...

2008-10-29, 14:38 PM

Hello,

 

I have a friend that brought me his notebook that does not want to turn on. All i know is that notebook was working fine until he downloaded a flash bios and proceded without checking it was correct version....

 

After that, one presses the power on button and notebook batery and error inside (circle with a sort of swirly line thru it) lights come on but nothing else. It just sits there with a black screen. Monitor does not even turn on.

I have tried taking out the battery for the bios but nothing, and tried playing around with different RAM combinations but without any result...same problem resumes... Any ideas where to look?

 

Thanks a lot, Darmin

you will need to buy a new motherboard, i don't think you can reset the bios back to original version... Flashing bios can be have deadly consequences on your laptop....
