This was given to me this way = would like to fix and turn it into a linux box. Power on - lights. a couple of times I've heard the fan and HD other than the battery being bad there is no display. I am thinking power board? the power supply is good.

HI 95five-0, yes, tried pluggin a monitor, no such luck, hearing the fan come on a couple of times (different power up sequences) led me to think maybe something to do with the power board.?

No, nothing. Power button is on, no sound (Beeps), just shows power is on and low battery (battery is bad) even with or w/o battery inserted. Heard the fan once or twice, thought I heard the HD once?

If you feel comfortable doing so, try opening the case and seeing if there are any loose connections. But be warned taking a part a laptop is not easy and make sure not to force anything and be mind full of the cable attaching the screen.

Ok, I have twice opened the case, not detected anything visibly wrong such as loose cables, etc. , only opened to first level, not gone deeper than that, as soon as I can get the time (getting ready for a bunch of ski guests) I will dissasemble this boat anchor and give it a good going over, that is as much as I have the ability to do so. Thanks 95five-0 for hanging in there with me. I will be back as time permits.
