I have an Averatec 2300 series laptop.  When I turn it on, I don't get anything to come up on the screen.  I hooked it up to a monitor and I get the same result.  I am not sure what to do now.   Do you have any ideas as to what I can try next?

Thanks.

on system startup can you see the bios loading?

Does the hard drive light flash?  Do any lights come on?

I can not see anything on either screen when I turn it on.  And the hard drive light comes on for a few seconds when I first turn it on, but only the power button is lit after that.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Doesn't sound good.  Could be the main board.  Make sure you remove the battery and anything else hooked up externally.  Also remove the RAM and hard drive..see if you can get any beeps out of it.

I talked to a co-worker of mine and he told me to charge the computer for about an hour and it comes right up now.

Thanks for everyone's responses.
