    My Everex Stepnote laptop will turn on, and I can hear the fans and hard drive spinning, but the screen shows nothing and eventually the hd spins down. What do i do? I tried the thing where you take out the battery and hold the power buytton down for 30 seocnds but nothing seems to be helping it out. Fried motherboard?


    In any case, is it possible for me to purchase a completely different laptop but then put my hd in the new laptop so all my stuff will be saved? It was running windows 7 RC, updated from vista.

    You could get a USB enclosure for the laptop drive and hook it up to the new PC to copy your data over.

    You can't really just plug in the existing drive as the boot drive on a different machine.
