I bought a dock and saw data on the hard drive, so I loaded the data on my other computer.
Put in the new (used) mother board. I got it to boot up everything seemed to be ok. Ran for about 1/2 hr. Then it went black and the same thing happened as before. But now I noticed that if I closed the cover and opened it quickly the screen would come back on for a second or 2. After doing this numerous times it fired up and worked for a while.
About this time it did a chkdsk, and deleted the following:
index entry traces.fx in $130 of file1179
index entry edb.log in index$130 of file 1308
index entry adb00194.log in index $ of file 1308
I took a picture of this screen (I'm not good enough to remember all of that!
after that it booted up and worked for a while then died again.
tried to boot it again, went through the same thing, screen flashing, close and open cover, chkdsk, it deleted different files but this time I didn't get a picture, (phone batt died) it started up ran for a short time died again.
Sorry so long winded, but am going NUTS!
I tried to hook it up to my TV, if the image stayed long enough on the laptop it would also be on the TV.
