Okay,, changing out the RAM sticks didn't do any good, but I was a bit pleased I could manage to do it.I used the "test" recommended in the video and used a bright light on the screen, and I could faintly see the icons. This means my screen gets signal (and the computer works) but the screen is malfunctioning somehow, most likely a faulty inverter which I will need to change.I do not know where to get one. That is my next challenge, although I don't expect it to be hard (RadioShack seems a good guess). Replacing the part is a video on YouTube I have already seen, and it doesn't seem too tricky.
He he I went to a computer fix-it store today and they'll sell me one for $10. I didn't have my laptop model number, so they responsibly didn't want to sell me one.Tomorrow I will take my laptop with me into town, and hopefully fix it in the store front. I guess they will be open Saturday. I need to remember to call.
http://www.pbcomp.com.au/laptop-notebook-troubleshoot.htmlThe right guy wasn't at the store yesterday, so I am going back today, in just a moment.I need to check the "pin" before I spend any money.The front counter guy said my LCD looked a bit cloudy when it shut off, and that might mean a $120 repair bill. I hope not.
Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life. AcerLaptop Service in Anna Nagar
