No BIOS on booting ?

Threaded View

I have a LG LS50-8 laptop.  Had it just over a year. Centrino 1.7, 1Gb
of RAM.

Last night while playing a game the screen started cycling through
colours - i.e the whole screen turned fro Red to Blue to Green etc

I assumed that it was because the graphics card (ATI Radeon 9700)
started to overheat.  The laptop usually shuts down when there is
overheating.  (It was very hot)

So I turned off the computer (as I couldn't get back into Windows).

I then went to restart and it and it didn't get to BIOS (POST), just a
blank screen no BIOS startup/vendor logo screen.

CD-ROM spins up.  CPU fan is on and Hard Drive light momentarily flicks
on, but no HDD movement.  Will try a CD Boot tonight just in case its
the HDD.

So any ideas what the problem might be here ?  Any suggested solutions

Thanks in advance.

Your GPU might have been fried. Expensive to repair (more then buying a new
machine), and there's little you can do. Sorry it looks like BAD news!
