Sounds like your hard drive has failed or your screen has gone out. I think it is your hard drive as you would at least hear something (like the windows log in) if it was truely just the screen.

To test it out connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if you get an image. I don't know your situation, but if you can afford it I would purchase a IDE/SATA converter kit (like 15 bucks) that you could connect to your hard drive after taking it out. Then you connect it to a working computer through USB and then you could at least get your information off of the drive. At that point you could purchase a new hard drive.

I"m from Columbus Ohio. I don't usually take laptops apart (I'll upgrade the hdd and ram though) as I have huge hands. but I have a friend that do. I send him the laptops that I need taken apart. pm me if you interested

I can fix your boyfriend's laptop if it's software related or bad ram or something or I can refer him out too.
