OK, so I had that problem earlier with the desktop that didn't have any video output and didn't seem to be doing any boot sequences. Well, now I've got a M1210 laptop that's doing the same thing. No Dell bios screen or any indication of anything on the screen. When I turn it on, the fan turns on, as does a blue LED. The WiFi light blinks for a split second, the HDD activity light turns on for about 2 seconds, the DVD drive makes a noise, and then it just sits there. I tried removing sticks of RAM, the wireless card, re-seating the screen cable/keyboard/bios battery to no avail. Guess I need help brainstorming.... it's just out of its 1 year warranty btw.
