Screen won't come on

Help! I got up this morning and suddenly my screen won't come on. My power lights come on when the on button is pushed and it sounds like it's booting up, but the screen remains totally black.

Bitz m is spot on. Check the device with an external monitor and check possibly the device driver. The only other thing I can think of that could be a simple fix... Look for a tiny button-like object that the screen would close on telling it that you've closed the screen and to dim the screen. If this button is somehow stuck down you would have this problem. If you had autoplay turned on you could pop a cd in and see if it begins to play to know how deep your problem goes. Good luck!

Please try to remove the battery and power laptop on ac. If it still happens, please try to use an external monitor like a PC monitor. If it is okay with the external display, please press on Fn+F5. If it still does not work, it's a hardware problem. Hope this works. Thank you.

My acer chromebook screen went blank suddenly


ALL YOU HAVE TO DI IS HOLD DOWN THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL A SCREEN COMES UP THAT SAYS:
"SUSTEM IS REPAIRING ITSELF".
That screen will stay on and along the top of the screen you will see a percentage progress line of the repair in progress. (It will take around 4-5 minutes)

The screen suddenly became much darker and harder to read.


Check to see if your battery settings are set for low power consumption or energy saver. Push the brightness button at the top of the keyboard to see if the screen brightens. If the previous suggestions didn't help then replace the backlight or inverter.

Have you hooked it up to an external monitor? If you can see windows booting up on the external monitor then u may have a bad lcd screen or inverter or video card? Still lots of questions to ask.
