But I managed to get it to work by connecting it to an external monitor using the rgb port. The desktop appaired on the external monitor, I then lanched the NVIDIA Control Panel, and configured it for multiple displays. After rebooting , the laptop screen work like normal. I unpluged the external monitor and everything was fine. I shutdown the laptop, closed the lid, and turned on the laptop and the same thing happened again,

i was having issues with no video, no hard disk spin AND NO WIRELESS (this one was for the last 6-7 months.) I took apart the laptop, insulated everything except of the gpu. With my rework station i reflowed then the gpu and put everything back. Then powered it on and BAM it worked!!Even the wifi card!!!If you have issues go buy a heating gun and give it a try.. there are many videos on the net for this.. Plus dont forget to put a copper shim pad between the gpu and heatsink to fill the gap..the original pad seems to lose its thermal transfer characteristics after a lot of use so you need to replace it. Speedfan now says GPU: 50-52. I think its ok for a laptop that i thought it was dead!!!

From reading everything though the lesson is clear: -
Whenever you want to buy something, google as if you already did and then it broke.
Unless you buy stuff on launch day, you should be OK. In fact if you buy stuff on launch day it's probably another brand, in which case you'll be OK anyway.
