Uh. My laptop monitor just died. Like, I was chatting with Feaw and a couple other people on skype, and in the span of 4 seconds my monitor started flickering, made a hissing noise, then there was a small pop and the monitor went black and hasn't come back. I'm kinda freaking the fuck out because IT'S MY GODDAMN GAMING LAPTOP and like it's literally my life, but yeah it just died, don't expect to see me on skype. I am trying to fix it atm by googling on the library pc.

Okay after freaking out I found that buying this could solve my problems.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/TARGUS-UNIVERSAL-NOTEBOOK-AC-POWER-ADAPTER-180W-APA05US-/360273242849?pt=Laptop_Adapters_Chargers&hash=item53e1f56ae1

I'm gonna deposit my money on saturday, get fexna, and purchase this $18 power cord. It'll be a week before I get to see it but I'll try renting a laptop from the library. This sucks but maybe I can fix it and be up and running again fairly quickly.

If anybody reading this can help me with a quick $18 loan via paypal I'll pay you back this weekend. I could really use the help. Sooner I get that adaptor the sooner we have FE8RR again

dude you're the man

Also don't know if you sent it yet or not, but if you haven't, hold off. I'm not 100% that it's the power cord yet, and I just posted a topic in the Laptopreview forums.

If it's the power supply

I'm Fucked.

Here's some good news: I turned it on, and the screen was visible! For 12 seconds. After it went to black, I no longer heard the hissing and I could still see things on the screen (Imagine turning your brightness from 100 to 1 instantly, that's how much I could see) so I might still be able to use it.

Bad news: If the power cord is not what will fix me up, then I need a power supply (IE that fucking brick in the back that is a part of the laptop) which is not a nice $18 purchase, but an expensive $200 purchase. If that's the case, say goodbye to FEXNA because I won't be able to afford it after purchasing the power supply.

Okay, it's medium news. A guy in the support forum said it might be my motherboard based on my descriptions. Looking into it I found it's a four week $110 fix, so timewise it's awful.

I may have to say no fexna and purchase a whole new laptop. I don't even know anymore. I think if there is a god, he must hate me.

jesus christ what, you just got that laptop, didn't you? What about a warranty?

I bought it off ebay, and the listing is gone. I don't think there is a warranty.

I think you can look at the things you bought in the past, even when the listing is expired

that'd be ridiculous if there wasn't even a limited warranty :\ you should try to contact the seller

I'd say just let it sit on charge nonstop for a week, without trying any fiddling with it. I'm guessing from it working for a little bit means it might just need time. o:

I did run it down to low battery power before this happened, might look into that.

Ultimately, this appears to be the issue.

Not bad, I can afford this.
