R60 9462-A45: no start, no display

Hello all,

 

I'd like to ask for tips and help with my problem.

 

I've bought a used R60 (9462-A45) which suddenly couldn't be started.

 

When I switch on power:

 

1. I hear (at least) one fan roar up that continues working on a normal/agreable sound level,

 

2. the CD-DVD drive can be opened up,

 

3. the casing below the CPU heats up,

 

4. the LEDs for (a) AC power status, (b) battery status AND (c) power on are lit appropriately

 

BUT

 

5. the display remains blank, no BIOS/POST messages whatsoever,

 

6. no sounds or beeps, and

 

7. the "drive in use" LED remains dead.

 

I've tried all the tips here involving switching on/off, with or without battery... I'm guessing whether opening up the laptop and manually resetting the BIOS (if possible at all) might remedy the situation.

 

Any thoughts here?

 

 

Cheers,

 

Goodtwist

Welcome to the forum!

 

Try this old trick: unplug the AC adapter, remove hard and media drives. Press the "power" button ten times in a row holding it down for ten seconds each time, and thirty seconds the last time around.

 

Plug the adapter - but nothing else - back in and try to power on.

 

Good luck.

Cheers,

George

@ ajkula66, Mornsgrans

 

Thank you for taking your time!

 

I tried switching on the computer with all drives and battery removed, however to no avail.

 

The laptop will be sold on Ebay at 13.00 (GMT+1), currently the price is around € 50,00.

Check the USB-ports whether they are well or have a short.

@ Mornsgrans
The laptop has been already sold, at € 52,00. So I guess the buyer is going to mess around with. I sold it as kaputt, by the way ; )
