Need Laptop Troubleshooting Help!
Friend of mine brought me a Acer 1500 series laptop. It's only about 2 years old.
The issue is, when you press the power button, the screen stays black. You can hear fans and the HDD power up, but the screen stays black. I've tried with battery or without. Same issue. I can not get into BIO's. I can't Run recovery disks. Nothing. I've tried hooking up an external monitor to the VGA adapter on the laptop with no luck.
I'm leaning towards an LCD issue. More specifically the LCD power inverter. I'm not really experienced with laptop hardware. I'm sure I could change a power inverter, although I'm not sure that is the issue.
Are there any steps I can take to try to help my friend out and get this fixed?
Thanks in advance.
