This laptop was send back to HP twice and got it's motherboard replaced twice while it was still under warranty.

While I was busy on the internet the laptop crashed. I restarted and the only reaction I got was the fan came on and some of the blue lights on the keyboard.

What to do?

Oh man, that sounds to me like another motherboard problem. I don't know a lot about laptop hardware but when there is a bad motherboard on a desktop, the fans still spin and the lights still light up but no image on the monitor.. It sounds to me like maybe HP didn't replace the motherboard, maybe they tried to "fix" it. I think this could also be a CPU problem... Is the laptop still under warranty?

No unfortunately it's not. If it's a motherboard problem, it would probably be a better idea to buy a new laptop?

If it's a motherboard problem, I would advise you to get ready to pay some serious service fee's for getting a new one put in.. Unless of course you learn how to do it yourself. I'm not familiar with model numbers, is that a new laptop? I assume it's over a year old if your warranty is expired.

Yeah no problem. Just make sure if it has Vista, you're getting atleast 2GB of RAM and some sort of Dual Core CPU... Good luck.
