MY LAPTOP TURNS ON...

MY LAPTOP TURNS ON TO SHOW PROGRAM ON SCREEN, BUT WILL NOT CONTINUE TOO BOOT UP, THE SCREEN JUST GOES BLACK AND DEAD.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your machine? And how long has the screen been an issue?

LENOVA, DON'T KNOW MODEL, BUT IT'S AT LEAST 10 YEARS OLD.

Technician's Assistant: What's the model and Operating System (OS) of your Lenovo?

WINDOWS 7, MOZILLA FIREFOX.

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your Lenovo? What troubleshooting have you tried?

RAY. ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO, I'VE CHECKED ALL THE POWER CONNECTIONS AND THEY'RE OKAY. I'VE TRIED BOOTING IT ABOUT 30 TIMES WITH NO RESULTS.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I'M AN OLD MAN WITH A FAILING MEMORY AFTER A MAJOR STROKE 8 YEARS AGO, AND PRIOR TO THIS PROBLEM THE LAPTOP WAS WORKING ON A DAY THAT HAD MULTIPLE THUNDERSTORMS AND POWER OUTAGES.
