    I've checked to see that the hard drive is spinning and it is. the hdd access light flashes.i have not checked the ram yes since it's a laptop and difficult to get to. but i'm pretty sure that's not the issue. since from what i've listened to it sounds like it goes through post then sits the fro about thirty seconds probly asking if i want to start windows in safe mode normal. when i just sit there after about that much time has past the cpu fans start going again a little faster and i can here that it's accessing the hard drive but since i can' see anything it's hard to tell if that's true. i'm thinking that it's a bad graphics card but i'm not sure.

    ok so the problem is that sometimes you can see the picture and sometimes you can't see it. i don't know what causes that but that's what happens. i got it working again. but after it went to sleep the screen never came back on. would that mean that there is something wrong with one of the windows files? i know one of them is the one used to bring the computer back from sleep mode. it's running windows vista. maybe this isn't a hardware issue?

    1) video problems can be caused by:

    1) memory not being read properly

    2) mother board problems

    3) In dell, apple, hp or gateway ribbon lcd cables

    4) bad dell, apple, hp or gateway lcd

    A)First replug the memory!!!! b) replug the ribbon cables c) testing of lcd d) testing and repair motherboard

    You can do A: replug memory or replace memory and b: replug the lcd ribbon cables

    You should be able to do A and B, if that does not solve your problem then you would
    need to take it to a dell, apple or gateway repair shope. If the above suggestions
    do not solve your problem.

    I would recommend: ADVANCED COMPUTER REPAIR, 342 W 71 ST,
    NY NY 10023, 212 7240168.

    THEY REPAIR DELL, APPLE, GATEWAYS, HP, TOSHIBA
    THEY CAN REPLACE LCDS SCREENS, MEMORY AND MOTHER BOARS INCLUDING REPLACING THE VIDEO
    CHIP ON THE MOTHER BOARD
