    Thanks Nightmare. I just pulled the dvd driver. When I turn the computer on, only the fan works. I can't access to the bios menu.

    Nightmare, my laptop computer screen is black. I also connected my laptop to an external monitor and I also got a black screen.

    It seems GPU issue, do you have GT525m, as the one i have?
    .......I just fixed the GPU on old XPS 1530 packed with 8600GT. It had the same symptoms like yours, when turned on, lights and fan were working but no display, so i went to a local PC, put a bit more heat on it and is working fine now, there months warranty.
    My 15Z is working fine so far. I do not do game s on it, so the temps are mid 50s.

    Did you fix it?
    I do not know what to say, basically the integrated video card is working (HD3000) not the GT525M, the high end video card will switch automatically when needed.
    Have you tried on external monitor to see if you have video output?
    .......

    I am having some problem with processor, it runs at max speed all the time, i checked the background programs, services, I stopped all of them, but only a restart will solve this problem. After a few minutes starts again full speed.
    I have Bios modded and deactivated the turbo mode in Bios.
    I might go back to original Bios to see if will be any improvement.

    What i did to fix similar issue is go to power options, and change the MAX processor state from 100% to 99%. What this will do is to disable the turbo boost. Mine was overheating quite a lot but after this fix it runs fine and cool now.
