    Cant get a post beep


    Alright, I was watching a movie on my tv via hdtv cord, I freqently do. This time something odd happened . The tv screen started to display a bunch of static lines. After afew minutes they started to kind of show up on laptop screen. Now I cant start it. Theres no post beep, bios,nothing. Usb has power no data, cd drive works too . So is it fair to say the motherboard is done?

    I think cable was unplugged by any thing or not proper plugged in.

    It doesn't explain a thing.

    Yeah, no beep means that the motherboard is fried. Had to get a new laptop.

    I believe it was caused by overheating over long period of time, and I was messing with USB cords. I stripped a USB cable to use the power leads to light up little lights. Also touched and mixed power and data trying to get a spark. That is what really did it in I think.

    But yeah, if you don't get a beep and your fans and HDD spins, the motherboard is fried.
