I have a Compaq 6510b that i got used back in feb. By the end of march it just decided that to stop showing anything on the screen. Before this "mass failure" it would have periodic "mini-failures" where it would go black when i "woke" it but would be just fine after a restart. I had a friend of mine (who is pretty freaking legit with computers) look at it and he is pretty certain that it is the graphics card (or maybe a driver or something).
From what i see on the interwebs, this isnt totally uncommon. What i CANT find is an actual solution and a price. Any help with those two issues is greatly appreciated. First hand knowledge would be even better!
p.s. im not computer illiterate my self, just not on his level nor on the level of some of you guys so cut me some slack.....
