I bought this laptop roughly about a year ago. As soon as I received it, it had issues, the display screen would not turn on. I went on bleepingcomputer.com and found a solution that explained that I should unplug the laptop, remove the battery and hold the power button down for approx. ~30secs or so. I did this and it worked.
Occasionally I would have this problem but this solution would usually solve it, so I never bothered to send it back.
Fastforward to today, I get home and open up the laptop and no display -___-. I do the trick about three times and nothing, the laptop turns on, the HDMI output to T.V works fine, but the screen won't turn on. I take the battery out and just plug the AC adapter and turn it on w/o the battery. I get this purple looking screen. Now I'm thinking "What the f--- ?"
Not sure if it's a driver issue, or this might actually be a hardware issue with my notebook. Any recommendations or suggestions to solve this issue would be GREATLY appreciatted.
