As titles say's.... Black screen of Death...
Toshiba satellite laptop L350-170
vista home premium 32bit
my 14yr nephew slammed the laptop shut.. with force while on !!!... snapped off 1 of the lid clips too... still closes & locks shut with 1 clip
on boot black screen, but boots ok into OS(can see with a torch shined onto the screen)also connected via VGA to spare monitor, all ok..
i replaced the inverter... still the same... black screen !!
so, i have output from the graphics... all items & icons onscreen (but black screen) using external monitor i've used the laptop for several hours ect... ok
new inverter... no change ? ... taken battery out to discharge any static,removed memory & tried 1 stick, 2 stick ect.. blew out the fan off any dust ect.. spins freely
checked Hdd connection... ok . ...
any idea's ???
also the fan only spins for 2-3 seconds on boot-up then stops... jeeeez... it's been ok till today !!.... Any help or idea's greatly recieved
