I have a laptop (Everex XT5000T) running Windows 7 that is not booting, or showing any signs after powering on. (Neither the BIOS or "Starting Windows" screens flash as they typically would).

After powering the computer on, the screen remains black but I can hear the fans and what I believe to be the hard drive working. There are no beeps either.

I have tried outputting to another monitor but the symptoms remain the same.

I have been successful running the computer since the problem started (reaching functioning Windows). I got to Windows (seemingly luckily) by pressing one of the F# buttons. But when I turned if off again, it would return to not starting.


Any advice or suggestions as the next course of action?

Exactly which F# button did you press?

F2? F12?

I am assuming this is the BOOT OPTIONS MENU related F# key, does this sound about right?
