Amilo M3438G showing no screen.

When I start up my laptop the Fujitsu Siemens boot thingy shows up for about 1 or 2 sec, and then it disappears. The screen stays black, but the fans keep working. The battery button blinks orange.

What is wrong with my laptop?

battery blinking orange means that it is charging, it should turn green when it is fully charged.

have you tried plugging in an external pc monitor? you might find that everything displays ok on that and just not on your laptop screen.

have been poking about with a simlar problem for a friends laptop and found that worked ok on an external monitor

across the back of the laptop imbetween the 2 screen hinges there are 3 tiny screws that keep the top of the hinge on, if you remove those you can access the cable that goes from the case through the hinge to the screen - this is made of thin rubber and when i wiggle it the picture sometimes comes back on the laptop screen, i think that after a few years of the lid being opened and closed it gradually degrades the cable in this rubber sleeve, will have to dismantle it further
