Question

laptop shut down unexpected then black screen and no noise

Hi,

just after waking up I took my computer I used it a bit for google research and 2 minutes after, my screen split horizontal lines right and left and my computer shut down.
I tried to turn it on, the lights that its turned on are on but not the one which indicate that the computer is "working". The screen is black and there is no noise when its turned on apart from the fan inside while before there were other noises when I was turning it on.
I took the battery off click on on/off for 1 minute but no effect (for static electricity apparently).

Here are some characteristics :
EasyNote TE
Intel Core i3-3120M
Intel HD Graphics 4000


Could you help me please ?

This 2012 laptop

May have met its end. Yes you can try replacing parts like motherboard but I don't suggest such at that age.

Spend 20 bucks for some USB HDD case so you can get your files out and move on to a new laptop.

Tks but weird after what I told before

Thanks for ur answer, I appreciate it, but here is what happends next

A few words after what I described first, my computer worked again but after a few minutes same problem as before with screen behaving in a really weird way i got a video about it and after lots of BSoD about kernel, then I didnt touch my computer for a few hours then some weird bugs but after this it worked as nearly normal so really weird :/

Let's give this old thing a last try.

Let's say this was mine. I'd open it up to the point I can get to the CMOS battery and install a new one. It's certainly old enough to need it and at the price, a cheap gamble.

Also, it's old enough to warrant me replacing all heatsink compound. This will give me a chance to clean the inside with canned air and check fans too.

Button it up and see if it comes back from the dead.

Try this

That is a hardware problem. No need of a USB drive, just take the drive from the laptop and see if its working (this might be causing the problem), If the fan is working the motherboard is OK but the cable connecting it to your display may be for replacing. You are probably the type of person that likes to close and open his laptop a lot.
