Dark screen on a NEC laptop



New Member

I have a screen problem with a NEC Ready 340 laptop running windows 2000 with 48 mb. Everytime I turn it on I see nothing on the screen but I can hear the HD spinning. There's usually a beep before the screen comes on, but there's no beep and the screen stays dark. On the system status indicator panel display, it seems like it's trying to access the PCMCIA slots. I had this problem in the past before, but it usually works after I unplugged it and plugged it again. This time nothing seems to work. Anyone knows what is causing the problem?
