Alienware Area51M won't boot?
Posted on 2006-11-16
I have an alienware area 51m, p4 3.0ghz, 1 gig RAM..nice laptop..but I can't use it!
The problem is it boots up sometimes and works fine, and I'll be in the middle of doing something, and the screen just goes black..not like it's hybernating or anything though..because it doesnt wake up. I can then shut it down and try to use it 2 days later, and it powers up, and nothing comes up (i hear the fans running and CD spinning etc), but get absolutely no output on the screen.
I've tried starting it up without the battery and CD/DVD Drive, but that doesn't change anything. I can then let it sit for a few weeks and it will continue to work fine.
Anyone have any idea where to start?
