Well, here's what happened:
My laptop dropped from my desk (usually no problem), but it dropped on my shoe, while fully flapped back... it won't boot normally anymore, she's dead.
I'm glad I got insurance, I so hope they fix this on insurance, because it wasn't my fault, but from the booting that does happen, I think my harddisk is crashed, and the m/b is pretty much broken...


Wish me luck!

p.s.
I won't be on for a few days at all, although I'm not here much, I'll be away on some excellent nicely holiday!

So if you're online without the laptop somehow...

Is it even showing the mfg logo during the BIOS stage or is it just blank no matter what?
If yes (it is showing the logo, IE: Dell, HP, etc) then you have a hard drive or mother board issue.
If no (the screen is blank) then try seating your RAM. If it got rattled loose the screen would be blank and it wouldn't even show the mfg logo going into BIOS.

It's a common fix about half the time for droppers, especially if the drop didn't break the hinges or crack the LCD.

I still have my desktop system you know :roadrunner:

But the laptop is really trashed, the keyboard has a really big, well, allmost a valley, in it!

As I expected, my laptop (with pretty much all my research-data), cannot be repared sadly.
So, I got a new laptop for 600 euro's.
I got
Compaq Presario CQ60,
and actually, despite I lost all my data... I am fairly happy with this girl. She's better then my previous laptop, and she does the job just fine, fine!

But well, I gotta do my study's finishing work all over again because I lost the data :roadrunner:
