    Need any advice I can get. Recently when i tried to turn on my laptop the power came on, but the screen stayed black. After turning the computer off and on several times I noticed that the icons on top would flash on when the computer comes on, but would turn off soon after. I was not able to start in safe mode either. I don't think it is a power problem as the fan, power light, and CD ROM still have power when the system is turned on. I don't believe it is my monitor either as I have already tried to hook up my laptop to my desktop monitor and it still would not display anything. Would appreciate any help, or suggestions on how to test system to figure out problem.
