I have a CP 1272 NB and it went out some time ago, I think I have tried just about everything to get the screen to come up, I admit it is kind of old but it still turns on.
I bought it off the shelf so to speak from RS, in 1999, then sent it to me and the battery never worked even with new but I used
it for years, then I began having problems, I don't know if it was before or after I installed AOL, but, if I remember correctly it started reading disk that weren't there when I would load a disk it would display inf. from a disc that wasn't loaded.
I restored it from Q-restore disk.
It was up for a while then quit one day, It turns on but the screen is horizantaly stripped all the way up and down. When I try to enter the BIOS I get a golden screen so it may be trying to do something same thing I think with safe mode, but there is no picture on the screen.
I am looking for some genius to help me trick this machine into working again.
I have found small compartment on underside; Memory Expansion, The rest of the computer I have never opened it to check out the MB etc.
Any help . . . . fantastic !
