When I opened the laptop up, I started taking out some of the screws so I could get to the drive and push it out. I did that, pushed it out, looked at it (looked fine) and popped it back in, figuring that perhaps it just wasn't in all the way and that's why it didn't work.
Then I put it all back together, press the power button....... The system turns on but the screen does not, then the DVD/CDRW drive reads, then the HD, (and the green light is on that shows the HD is thinking) and then the GREEN LIGHT TURNS OFF, and the system just sits there with a blank screen. The HD seems to stop altogether and the laptop just sits there, still powered on, but doing nothing.
If I leave it there for a minute or so --- ON --- the fan will kick on. I opened it BACK up to see if I loosed a connection or something while I was in there, but everything looks fine.
ANY IDEAS ON WHAT IT MIGHT BE???
Thanks in advance!
