The only fan that is on is the one on top of the HDD. Does this change your thought that it is the system memory to the left of the HDD. Or, do I now have a big piece of plastic junk?
Thanks so much for your responses and kindness btw.
Did you ever get this solved?
I have the same issue, replaced the battery and hard drive, still black screen. Is it the mainboard?
I will have to check what the error code is.
