If there are any hard drive lights that flash see if they are active. If they are it may just be the screen at fault.

Plug into a monitor and see if it boots up if it does it may be your back light which is why you shine the torch

Have you taken the battery out and tried to switch on with just mains??
Also do you get any bleeps when you switch on... sometimes the bleep sequence / noise means something - you can google what you hear.

When your doing these tests.

1. Remove the Battery.
2. When you power off remove the power lead from the laptop. For about 30 seconds.

That will help with diagnosis as it keeps the environment at a good Base to work from.

It is possible that the hard drive lights are not doing anything as there is a screen problem and you cannot read it. Windows will do a count down of about 30 seconds before it goes with what it wants to do.

You should normally see the screen light up with a logo or Boot sequence.

Give this a go it happens on my good old trusty laptop.

Simply close the lid and open it again. Try this a few times. And try to follow the screen with your eyes as you open and close the screen, as it may just be a trapped cable pulling or loose.

Let us know how you get on.

I have removed the battery and tried leaving it for a while . now when i press the button to start it it sounds like it is trying to start . ie makes a noise twice but still no lights and nothing at all on the screen . I have also tried it with a monitor connected with no result. if it cant be repaired is it still possible to retrieve files and folders from the hard drive ?
