If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

if you are saying that the battery and the adapter can be use on another machine,just plug it in again on the machine and turn it on,if you can see the indicator but no display or the indicator also no light,means your system board is dead.change the system board,nothing else can you do dude.

    Error code 36 means a ley is stuck. Only you can find out which one. Press each key in turn to feel if there is a dodgy key.

    remove the battery large.
    then run on AC pack only
    #1 top failure of all mobile PC is that battery, so unplug it
    then test with AC pack only.
    work now.? and all vents must be clean, end to end. not just fan.
    there i no fuse it uses current regulator, imagine genius magic electronics fuses that never blow out, and bingo.

    OK big battery out, an RTC coin cell fresh.
    then fan blows.
    next is BIOS, do the BIOS screens work if not the mobo is dead.
    have 2 RAM stick on the 2 slots>? try one at a time
    run the PC with all modules removed, (options)
    remove hdd?
    remove, dvd drive.
    think like this. Get bios working first
    learn that modules can short, and when they do the power regs shut down.
    so we unplug all things to the mob,
    until only 1 ram and cpu remains.
    see? (this is called power overload fault isolation tactics)
    even the screen only can be dead, you never mention text showing
    you can test the mobo with external screen via that rear (?)_ VGA jack what if that worked, did you learn something here, sure.
    this pc has tons of modules to pull, even bluetooth. wifi, sound and more. if you look at all parts inside or sold by ebay, bingo. lots

    It helps to know what device model and OS you are using though the following steps for changing from pattern lock to slide are for Android OS 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich):
    1. Unlock your Android device
    2. Find the Applications menu and select "Settings"
    3. Under the "PERSONAL" group, select " Security"
    4. Under "SCREEN SECURITY" group, select "Screen Lock"
    This will ask for the security pattern first.
    5. The options for screen lock will appear, select "Slide" and you are done!
    Hope this helps.
