Step 1

Mo Bradley says do this:• 1) TAKE OUT YOUR LAPTOP BATTERY • 2) REMOVE YOUR AC ADAPTOR CORD, that's the wall power, remove it. • 3) NOW HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS

Step 2

That will drain any static electricity that has built up on your laptop system board and many times fixes the problem of a black screen. After the 30 seconds re-connect your laptop to the wall power and hit the power button normally and see if the laptop comes back up. Replace your battery.


Step 3

Did this help you? If so Mo Bradley has one more quick tip to save your pocket.I would like you to save on the high cost of replacement printer ink and I implore you not to buy Original Brand replacement ink. This is the rip off of the century and the Original Brand companies are not even ashamed. Try this website for ink which is mostly under $4.00 each (even HP ink) or if they don't have your printer model try some of the other suppliers of off brand printer ink. In the past I have used and They all have good quality off brand cartridges that will save you so much money.
