Cannot even get into the bios

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A mate has brought around a notebook and I am stumped. He was reinstalling XP using the DVD drive. While it was installing he went away for about 15 minutes and when he came back the screen was blank. Now when you turn the laptop on you get the screen telling you to press F2 to enter the bios but nothing happens if you try to enter the bios. After that the screen goes blank. if you press any of the keys they make a clicking sound. If you hold down a key the clicking sound is repeated rapidly.

So after the brief press f2 to enter the bios screen nothing happens. The notebook is not switching off though as they keys make a clicking sound. Also the notebook will only switch on with the power supply on.

The laptop is a Median MD96400

Any ideas as to what might be wrong?

serious problem . I'll think service center is best bet.
