1st.. Thank you for taking the time to help me.
Well I have a Ibuypower Laptop. Vista OS, AMD athlon 64 processor, 2g muskin ram, Hitachi 80g harddrive, and ATI 256 mb graphics card (not sure model).
My computer was working fine. I went to work and my 6yr old son turned on my computer. when I got home my computer was off. I tried to turn it on and the power light came on, but the screen remained black.
I asked my son if he did anything and he just said he just turned it on. I could hear the hard drive spin up.
also normally to shut off the computer via the power button, I would have to Hold the button down for 10sec. Now if you just touch the power button it shuts off. I tired the FN/F2 thing to see if it was the screen. No joy. I pretty much tried every combination of keys, with no luck.
The "wierd" thing is this... I took off the backing and reseted the RAM, Harddrive, CPU and cleaned the fan. When I put everything back and and turned it on... IT WORKED!!! lol so it powered on and worked fine, I then shut it down normally and had to go. I came back later that day and now its doing the same thing.
So I do not think its the screen, but am lost. Any help you can provide, would be great. Again thank you for taking time to read this.
