There's probably a faulty connection between the main board and monitor and there's not much you can do. You can put it in for service under warranty if within the warranty period.
If you have to pay, I would not do it if it costs more than $300. Also is the laptop cost less than $1000 then I would just buy a new laptop, just keep this a spare or a desktop computer.

The display keeps going off on my asus laptop about every 2 minutes or less, even when all my settings are set for never go off.


To isolate your laptop problem, first thing you should do is use an external monitor to check if the video chip is OK. You need to press Fn + F4 or F5, F6 depends on your laptop model to activate the display on your external monitor. If your laptop works fine with the external monitor, then your laptop LCD or the inverter(small board that controls the voltage that is sent to the LCDs backlight) went bad.
Inverters is the problem that is easy to fix, you just have to get the correct inverter for your laptop model and your problem is fixed. One way to test inverter is to check it with voltage meter if it is giving the correct voltage.
To check your LCD, use a flashlight. Shine it to your LCD, if you see a faint image then in most cases it is the backlight that needs to be replaced. If you don't see an image even when shining the flashlight then it is most likely the inverter and it should be an easy fix.

Monitor is dark. how to fix?


Walt, hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the Acer, F5, Display Toggle-Over key.

There are at least 3 display options available;

1) Internal display of laptop ONLY

2) Internal display of laptop AND external display

3) External display ONLY.

Were you just using the external display for more 'display real estate room', or was/is there a problem with the internal display of the laptop?

Was no problem? Is now? Even when using the guidance stated above for the Fn and F5 key?

Then if your laptop uses a CCFL for a Backlight, it also uses a screen Inverter. Screen Inverter is bad.

If it doesn't use CCFL/s for a backlight, and uses LED backlighting, replace the LCD screen.
The LED backlighting is incorporated in the LCD screen assembly, and you ain't replacing it.
Replace the entire LCD screen.

Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number in a Comment. Model number is on Bottom of laptop.

I recently uninstalled ms office 2007 program on my asus EeeBox B202 desktop pc, after rebooting the monitor displays orange color with graphical lines and mouse cursor, the computer actually stopped...


This is unrelated to the Office uninstall. Failing backlight can cause pinkish or orange coloration. I would suggest you take it to a professional to price replacing the backlight.

If you want to confirm that the computer still works and it's just the backlight, do the following:

Boot it and listen. Does it all sound normal?
Boot it in the moonlight and look at it from all angles (can you barely see the image on the screen? If so it's definitely your backlight.)
Connect it to an external monitor (google it).

Computer works,,,, but displays only white screen plss help ; ((


Only way to eliminate some issues is to connect it to an external monitor. If the screen works and you get an image on an external monitor, the graphics chip on the laptop is at least ok and the fault is with either the inverter, backlight or VGA cable (probably the latter).
If you get no image on the external monitor, then you need to look at the graphics chip on the motherboard as possibly failing

No display on screen but lights on keyboard. The battery and power lights come on and the hard disk light blinks, but there is no display on the screen


Try an external monitor on the laptops vga output, if the external monitor works ok then you have either a faulty screen or inverter

Asus 1000he red vertical line in monitor will not


Hi

If you have External Monitor check by connecting it
if you get display on external monitor without line it means Display screen is Bad, if Line appears on external display as well then there is either Display driver issue or motherboard problem.

Nothing appears on the display.


You could have a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp, To determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
