Laptop died because on Windows 95
Posted on 1998-11-11
I have a Prostar 8200 notebook, I tried to install windows 95 (build 950 <no a or b>) and at the hardware detection phase, about 80% through the screen turned off, never to turn on again. When I plug a monitor into the CRT-out, nothing shows up. I turned the laptop off, It ook the batteries out, I've done everything and the screen still doesn't work. When I turn it on it works normally, it posts and beeps, but the screen never comes on. Its has only done this before when I installed win95 last time with batteries (when I plug in the AC adapter, the screen doesn't turn off) but this time it doesn't matter what I do, the screen just won't work. The laptop is a 486/dx2 66 with a Cirrus Logic CLGD-6235 controller. HELP!!
