I think this is a common problem - the fans spin, the lights turn on but the screen is blank - I read it was a motherboard failure. For a while, I could continually switch the thing off and on and it would start properly, but for the last few months, nothing works. All I need to do is get some data (I managed to back up some, but not all of the RAID drive) and that's it. I have been advised against externally mounting the RAID drives (not that I know how to do that anyway ) but what do you guys think I should do? Is it definitely a mobo problem, should I order a new one in - I don't have any experience in taking laptops apart. Thanks!
