What model is it? How old?
Video drivers have nothing to do with the splash screen if you change video drivers and uninstall your drivers have you ever had a blank screen with no bios? I dont think so ... It sounds more like the backlight is gone or something more hardware related, what happened just before this ? Do you hear the beep of the POST meaning that the portable has completed the POWER ON SELF TEST? If not then again this is a sign that your hardware is in trouble..try to pop out the battery and the memory and then put them back in I have seen portables that wont boot and after removing the battery they have so try with no battery as well. And by battery I mean the the big rechargable one not the cmos meaning there is no need to totaly dismantel the portable in 35 pieces.


I would because I asked you to remove it and replace it and imagine you did not bother to try...

The cmos battery would have done nothing, but the ram is under a small door now how did that fall out? and if it did how could you not see that the door was off? Either way you got it fixed good for you.
