i will explain what happened to my gateway fx laptop over the course of the last couple days in detail so you might have any ideas as to what happened and/or how to fix it below: environment: I am currently traveling in the middle east so it is very hot and sunny (could be the source of the problem) day one: i used my computer normally then shut it down and put it in my suitcase day two: i go to turn on the computer and it seems like it turns on but the screen is completely unreactive. it makes sound like stuff is going on inside and it works, but the monitor doesn't even flicker. so i looked online and saw a way to fix this that said remove battery and charger press power button for 30 seconds. put battery back in and turn on. unfortunatly this did not work. i have also made sure that the battery was charged enough to do this. day three: this still doesn't work haven't found anything online about the problem so i had to write on gbatemp. sorry about the past/present tense. anyway i had once left my mp4 in the car where it was sunny and really hot one day and the screen became really bad and hard to see (is this similar to what happend?) i am writing as much as i can because i have no idea what is the source of the problem. also it hasn't been dropped or anything. please help!!! anything would be appreciated.
