Re: screen blackout
Well that computer is about 8 years old. And the lamp for the backlight
doesn't burn forever. You can check this by shinning a very bright light
(flashlight, sunlight, etc.) on the screen. And if you can faintly see
the image, the backlight isn't lit. A number of things can cause this.
So let us know if you can see the image.
Another thing, since you just updated the memory... maybe it doesn't
like it. Can you put the old memory back in and try that?
Reset? Cannot think of anything except maybe going into the BIOS setup
(making sure it reports the right amount of RAM) and save and exit. Not
really useful if you can't see the screen though.
