Screen


Suggests a problem with the Video Cable, screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

However the diagnosis starts with the graphics chipset. It has to be ruled out as the problem before going on. Otherwise you would be foolishly replacing parts, (Video Cable, screen Inverter, LCD screen), when it would do no good.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the left side of the laptop.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector (port),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Scroll down a little for the VGA Cable example.

You can use a CRT type of VGA monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
If not;

There are at least 3 display options;
A) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
B) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
C) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the F5 key. (The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

Display is good on external VGA monitor?
Then problem is Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.
(screen Inverter or LCD screen)

Display is bad on the external VGA monitor, means there is a problem with the graphics chipset.
Most of the time, it is the MOUNTING of the graphics chipset TO motherboard, and not a faulty graphics chipset.

Video Cable:
The Video Cable connects to the motherboard, in an area under the Middle Cover.
(Middle Cover. Acer for Switch Cover. The plastic strip under the LCD screen, and above the Keyboard. Has the Power On button, LED indicator lights, and speakers)

It then runs under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.
From there a small cable comes off of it, and connects to the screen Inverter. The main part of the Video Cable, then connects to the back of the LCD screen.

So we have - Motherboard connection, screen Inverter connection, and LCD screen connection.

Due to the normal opening, and closing of the laptop; one or all of those connections could be loose.
The Video Cable could be pinched, and pulled on.

It can also cause damage to the Video Cable.
Example of Video Cable,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Acer-Extensa-5630-5630EZ-LCD-Screen-cable-50-4Z410-002-/200877167645?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash=item2ec536541d

The large white connector at the Bottom, with black insulation around it; plugs into the motherboard.
The small cable with the smaller white plug connector, connects to the screen Inverter.

The main part of the Video Cable goes up, and ends in a large white plug connector. The smaller cable that goes on up from it, plugs into the webcam.

Start by checking the motherboard side connection of the Video Cable.
1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Open the laptop.
Remove the Middle Cover.
The Middle Cover pops off. HOWEVER be aware that there are cable STILL attached.

Come to the right of the Power On's rectangular button. See the parting line of the Middle Cover to Bottom Cover?
I use a thick guitar pick to insert in that parting line, and ease the Middle Cover up a little.

You can also use a Spudger Tool. I do NOT recommend using a metal tool, such as a metal flat tipped screwdriver.
You can mar the plastic parts very easily, and also can cause damage.

IF, this is your only recourse, make SURE the tip of the screwdriver does NOT go in more than 1/8th Inch. That is a tiny bit more than 3mm.

Ease the Middle Cover up, then use your fingertips, and go along the edges of the Middle Cover. You want to pop the Middle Cover off, then roll it over on the Keyboard; with the cables still attached.

The Video Cable motherboard connector, is to the left of the left Speaker, and below the left Hinge.
Visual inspection alone will NOT do. You have to physically try to plug the Video Cable connector in.

Now ease the Battery back in, and reconnect the AC adapter. Plug AC adapter back into power. Turn the laptop on. Fix the problem?
No? Go on.

Remove ALL power again.
This time you are going to check the screen Inverter connection, and LCD screen connection.

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
Acer calls it the LCD Bezel.
There are 4 Screw Covers to remove. One in each corner.
Top Left, Top Right, Bottom left, and Bottom Right.

These are made of synthetic rubber, or plastic. They have a type of rubber cement on them, that holds them on.
I take a computer pick, and remove them. You may find a similar tool if you do not have a computer pick.

Start at the bottom edge where the Screw Cover, meets the Display Bezel. Lift up.
If you use care when removing you may be able to reuse the Screw Covers. Don't stick anymore? Apply a tiny dab of rubber cement with a toothpick.
I L-I-G-H-T-L-Y stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping.

(They like to stick to the computer pick, your fingers, and it seems sometimes passing satellites)

Remove the 4 Philips head screws. (No.1 Philips screwdriver, or comparable Jeweler's screwdriver)
The Display Bezel has TABS that go around the perimeter, of the inside edges.
These snap into matching Latches on the Display Cover.

The Display Bezel is flexible. Made of space-age plastic.
To remove use your fingertips on the inside edge at the bottom. Flex the middle of the bottom up a little.
When it is high enough, slide s fingertip underneath, and go along the Display Bezel at the bottom. Go towards the Right, or Left.

The Tabs/Latches should start releasing. Snap, snap, snap. Almost sounds like you are breaking it.
Bottom popped loose go up the Left side, or Right side. Pop those Tabs/Latches loose.

Once the Display Bezel has popped loose pretty far, it should come off. I state SHOULD. I have has Display Bezels where I had to fight it all the way off. Every Tab/Latch had to be released.

See the small circuit board at the bottom? That is the screen Inverter. You can physically check the connection, just to see if it was loose.
While you are here though, you need to check LCD screen connection. After that, then make sure the screen Inverter connection is tight.

Reason is you are going to partially remove the LCD screen, to check it's connection; and this could disconnect the screen Inverter connection.
(Remember; all connections have to be Physically checked. If the screen Inverter connection was popped partially loose, when checking the LCD screen connection, you may not see it.
Check screen Inverter connection, AFTER checking LCD screen connection )

LCD screen connection is tight, after physically checking?
Screen Inverter connection is tight?
Lay the LCD screen assembly back in the Display Cover, and Display Cover is tilted back a little bit.
(Don't want LCD screen to fall forward)

All power reinstalled, turn the laptop on again, and see if these connections were the problem.
I have run into this many times, and so have users who have posted on here, through the years.

Still no?
You MUST rule out the Video Cable as the problem before going on.
Means the Video Cable has to be removed, and checked for continuity. Nothing fancy here. You just want to make sure electricity, is passing through every wire in the Video Cable.
Test is performed with a multimeter set to OHM's (1K), and every wire is checked.
No access to a multimeter? Then suggest taking the Video Cable down to the nearest small computer shop, and have them check it for continuity. Should only be a couple of bucks.

A black box keeps appearing in the middle of the screen and stays on until I either turn off the TV or turn on the settings screen and clear it


Somehow, the cable box or some other device changed the settings for the caption box on the TV. While no closed captions were appearing on the screen, the box was being displayed. The box stopped popping up when the captions setting was turned off.

Hp F 2105 MONITOR volume and sleep problem


this is not HP.com sorry, its a BULLsession blog, mostly guessing
QUESTION TO YOU.
no computer stated, 10000s exist, 1981 to now, endlessl....
we get you have a display connected to what>? who knows.
I hate guessing
but is display connected to a desk top PC?
that it.
so if you barrow and other display does it work ok?
it has 2 cable (not power) one is DVI other is VGA
which one are you using.

ok i see your confusiong
yes, the monitor has its one menu's and the bad designers
dont tell you that, all pop up windows need to say who is talking to you in this case "F2105" is not in the window.
geeks design it and this is what you get.
even windows 10 does this inane acts,, it pops up
and forget to say , I'm W10, only the blue color dark is the clue)
so dont feel bad, its the lame geek disease there.
what does this mean
that you need o learn the buttons on your monitor
one is to clear those screens its in the manual.
best is dont use those buttons. if possible. on side of monitor
the monitor has its own tiny computer brain that is helping you.
avoid it.

the button on most monitors (mine has 5)
menu button,. press one to get menu press again to exit
some have an exit button push it.
lost your manuals>? hp.com has them, ask.


http://support.hp.com/us-en


your monitor has speakers, those need to be connected. to the PC.



http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Pavilion-21-inch-Monitors/81806/model/461641/document/c00665777/



the screen box is called, clear it now using manuals above.
