Power .Battery symbol 1 & 2
The hard drive LED doesn't show .
I Did ( Carefully ) replace the onboard video card . and there was a start up . though . no display also . and irrational noises .
Any Ideas !
N.B. Please check . Attach File . JPG . Sony Laptop . Startup Issues
If I might make a suggestion. In this forum's "Advice on General Use" column there are a bunch of Diagnostic Hardware labeled "Sticky's" that might be useful to you. I don't think to use these as often has I could. Asus went to alot of work to provide these. Something might be helpful. I wish I had more answers but I don't yet.
