Display Screen Went Dark...

I was using my laptop one morning when my15 month old son tripped on the power cord and pulled it out of the back of my computer. Since then, the screen has been darkened, but you can see the programs, just not enough to use them without killing your eyes. Every time I close the lid or shut down the laptop, then either open it or turn it back on, the color is back briefly, then goes dark again. Please help!!! This laptop is my only source to communication with the outside world during the day, which helps me keep my sanity!!

Thanks!!

This would seem like the power supply is broken and the computer is working off the battery or the setting need to be changed in power management. Whenever you disconnect the power supply and work form the battery, as power saving mode, windows will dim the back light to the display. First check if the power supply is charging the battery and then check your settings in the following: Start menu -  Programs - IBM - Battery MaxiMiser Wizard. Follow the steps until you get to the LDC display level. You may need to increase that.

Compaq Evo N600c Laptop over 5 years old but has been working fine. About 2 months ago the screen went dark (bad lamp?) so been using an external monitor. Turned it on this morning and it started to boot...


Do you see any lights on the laptop that are on? If you see any lights and only a black screen, then more than likely your video chip on the motherboard has gone out. Some local shops might be able to replace the motherboard it might be cheaper than buying a new laptop. Good luck

Acer aspire 3610 graphic or battery problem?


It sounds like your backlight is damaged. On some units this can be replaced on its own. On others, it requires the entire LCD to be replaced. I'll see if I can find out which this is, in your case, and find you a part number.

Son ran battery to zero after he broke power cord, now won't boot


Couple of things

First is to let it charge with the lid down for a few hours.
If that does not fix it then check that your son did not use the alternate display option FN F5 or FN F6 on the acers I think

If you still have no luck you might want to ask questions of your son before you take it to a repair shop

Screen is dark (like there is no power on it)


Well if you take a strong light like a flashlight and you can see a faint image. Then the lamp (CCFL) or the lamp's inverter has failed. It should work fine with an external monitor. Still not good though and usually expensive to repair (unless it is still under warranty).

Screen went dark (almost completely)


check your power cord and make sure it's plugged in all the way, and if it is, check your brightness setting.

Usually it's the Fn key + an arrow key. Make sure the brightness is up all the way
