    NEC Ready 120LT Laptop

    Problem:
    1. I plugged in the power cord from the computer into the electrical outlet. The Power Status LED came on. The fan sound came on. The screen was blank. I pressed the Power button; still the screen was blank. The Hard Disk Activity LED (I checked and made sure the Hard Disk was in place and secure) also, did not light up. Nothing happens. Screen is blank.

    Attempts at troubleshooting:

    1. The hard drive is good. I tested it in another Ready 120 LT of a co-worker. It works fine.

    2.I tried pushing the Clear CMOS Button. I made sure as stated in instruction on page 2.4 of the Ready 120 LT Users Guide, that I " Turn off the computer, remove the battery, disconnect the AC adapter and press the button once again." It says, " there is an access hole in the compartment cover. To press the button, use a paper clip or pen point to push it."

    3. Once this was completed, I plugged in the power cord from the computer into the electrical outlet. The Power Status LED came on. The fan sound came on. The screen was blank. I pressed the Power button; still the screen was blank. The Hard Disk Activity LED (I checked and once again made sure the Hard Disk was in place and secure) also, did not light up.

    4. Is there some reason when I press the Power button the computer won't screen won't come on and Windows 98 start playing?

    5. Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.

    COuld be that the laptop has met it's maker. Could be any number of things causing it....power problem internally, dead CPU. Have you checked the battery out? Take it out completely and then try the external AC adapter.

    Hi kaibab, welcome to TSG........

    This might be a crazy idea, but have you tried playing with the brightness controls?
