    I have a cheap I-Friend laptop. It's been working faultlessly until a couple
    of days ago, when suddenly while using it the display went totally blank,
    the hard drive sounded it like it span fast and all the lights on it came
    on. I pressed and held the standby button, but it wouldn't turn off, so I
    pulled the battery out. Since then the laptop won't do anything, it plays
    completely dead. I've taken out the hard drive, fitted it in to a caddy and
    checked it works, I've also checked the memory card is seated in it's
    connector ok.

    Anybody have any ideas please?

    Sounds as if the display itself is bad or the ribbon cable from the main
    body to the display is bad or needs to be reseated. I've had a Compaq that
    had the dead display and a simple cable reseat fixed it.
