    Thank you everyone for the tips on trying to get my laptop back in working order.

    So far nothing has worked. The display won’t turn on. Still trying to find an external display, but have lots of boxes in garage and haven’t found one yet.

    So far I’ve tried:
    Disconnecting AC
    Take out battery
    Disconnect CMOS battery cable for over 1 minute
    Press power button on
    And waited for 5 minutes. Display won’t turn on.

    Done the above, take out 1 of the 2 RAM sticks
    Press power button on.
    Display won’t turn on.

    Done the above switching to the 2nd RAM stick in the same slot.
    Display won’t turn on.

    Switch the RAM sticks to the other slot, turn on, then repeat with 2nd RAM stick.
    Display won’t turn on.

    I've even tried the above with no RAM sticks at all.
    Computer seems to turn on, multicolor RGB keyboard turns on, fans turn on for a few seconds, then RGB keyboard goes to blue. Everything seems normal as when the laptop was working fine.

    Reseller contacted me today, we’re scheduled for phone call tomorrow.

    Will let you know the updates.

    It has MX4 on it right now.I think the first thing i'll try is the washer mod for the CPU. As i think i can do that without removing the heatsink. Just going one screw at a time.

    And under 125w PL and full GPU and CPU load in aida cpu spiked at 96 but was normaly around the 86-89 mark. Honsestly not sure if thats any good or not.

    The number 1 test is what @Mr. Fox suggested with the flashlight. That will tell you if it is the GPU, or the screen.

    You may want to loosen the screws a bit as you will be applying a lot of force on individual sides doing that.

    Good point. The washers will arrive tomorrow so i'll do an update then.

    These are my temps under Aida64 with max fans before the washer mod. Only a short test shown but no matter how long i run it for these are the max temps i'll see

    Hmm, that means your CPU has failed. Work with @Zoltan@zTecpc tomorrow to arrange its replacement.

    No need to look for that external monitor.

    It would be nice to have an unlocked bios for my X170........... People should stop fighting especially when no one is charging for it.

    I got a little bored waiting for my washers for the mod and did a little vinyl wrapping. IMG_3057.jpeg
