    Dead Laptop?!

    My laptop (Fujitsu S6120) which was ultimately to be my new carputer has died! Now when I turn it on, the fans spin up, but nothing else happens. Sometimes I get 4 beeps but that's it.

    They're not BIOS beeps because it runs Phoenix BIOS which has beep codes like 4-1-1. I've verified this by removing the RAM and I get proper BIOS codes saying no RAM.

    Any ideas what may be wrong with it? I don't think it's CPU broken/dislodged otherwise the BIOS wouldn't be able to generate the beep patterns when I remove the RAM. If it were just the video card it'd give proper BIOS beep codes.

    Don't want to have to buy ANOTHER lappy!!!!!

    Worse still, searching on google I found a thread where someone had the same problem, but the forum's down now and the google cache doesn't have it!

    I'm going to try contacting Fujitsu but I've no warranty left so not sure they'll help me.

    Car changed for TVR Griffith 500, so computer de-installed. Using a Dension 100ix w/60Gb HD unit in the interim.
