Powerbook Screen not coming on - No Sound
Unfortunately my powerbook suffered a fall this evening. Probably a couple feet. I have 2 young children that use this machine frequently, I'm sure it's not it's first time experiencing such a fall.
Anyway, now, the machine will turn on, I can hear the fan, light on front, but no chimes when turning on and absolutely nothing on the screen.
Suggestions? I've tried just rebooting, removing the battery and restarting while plugged in and nothing changes.

I'd suggest taking it in to the shop for a diagnostic. They'll charge a nominal fee, maybe $50, to tell you what the problem is. You can decide to do once you find out what's going on. If there's no startup chime, that rules out hard drive damage, which would be the easiest one to diagnose and fix. It could be something as simple as a connection jarred loose, but who knows.
Don't try taking it apart yourself. Take it to the people who know what they're doing. Voice of experience.
