Black screen wont boot, will if battery removed.

This problem only started a few days ago and its driving me up the wall!!! This laptop will be a year old in about 4 days so im very anxious to get it fixed. The problem is that it wont boot up! I hit the power button all the quicklaunch LEDs turn on, the fan turns on, and the cd drive works but nothing....a blank screen and i know its not the LCD because there is no hard drive activity. Now the weird part, if I turn it back off and remove the battery and run it of the A/C ONLY then it will boot up and i have a fully functional Dv2000. I cant figure it out!!!
Please help I do not want to resort to a system recovery :-(

    Thanks for the suggestion, I thought of that to but i just fixed the problem. Turns out it was just faulty vista updates as soon as I did a recovery of the critical updates FOOSH!!! The problem was gone!!

    I have the same problem. When I removed my battery and was running on A/C power, everything was going smooth. However, I have Windows XP. Will I also have the same driver problems like Vista ones? Please I need some input on this, cause I been taking good care of my laptop

Its most likely windows......Im just about ready to upgrade to vista ultimate so im not too worried anymore. Installing ultimate will erase my entire hard drive so it should fix the problem if its windows related. I will post here if the problem is fixed.

I did a critical update search on the Microsoft site for my XP, and so far none are there. I am confused whether its the battery or my Windows XP

The battery is probably toast. Take it with you to the store to test a new battery before purchasing one.

When I turn on my laptop pc every couple days a black screen will come up and the laptop stops processing. Why? How to fix it?


I would suspect a glitch in the MBR/software, a black screen with a white cursor in the top left, BUT, Try this , when you shut down always unplug, remove battery when you use at home connected to AC. At boot in BIOS, BOOT sequence, change to Boot from HDD first. Also remove DVD's, CD's from the DVD/CD rom drive, if the machine has boot from DVD/CD rom as a default, it will try to read the disk in the drive first, delaying a switch to second HDD boot. This is a general idea in the Boot sequence procedure: http://helpdeskgeek.com/how-to/change-boot-order-xp-vista/

My acer Aspire 3500 wont turn on. It was fine a few hours ago but now wont boot. I keep getting the acer picture featurning the f2 set up and then the screen turns blank with a white flashing - in the left...


if you activity lights on, try connecting to an external monitor or modern flat screen tv. if the screen is flashing then it is probably a screen issue. eg the invertor r screen has failed.

Have an HP Pavilion Entertainment laptop computer that won't start. Keeps trying, but black screen. I've tried unplugging all devices (printer, mouse) and removing battery and plugging directly into wall....


Try holding down the esc button during a cold boot, as soon as you hit the power button you must hold down the esc key. Try it a few times waiting at least ten seconds between boots. If a screen comes up choose hard drive and computer should boot. This is only a workaround to a manufactures defect on the motherboard and will not fix the computer. But if it does post when you do this you will know it is a defective motherboard.

My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.


Try these steps:

1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
3. Attach battery and plug into wall
4. Power "ON" as normal

If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

Battery Not Identified.


hello

I suggest you a few steps to solve your problem.
  • remove the charger and press the power button till all residue power is radiated.
  • then connect the charger and charge the battery fully and try booting the system.
  • if this don't work check the output of your charger and see if it is working fine.
  • if it is working fine then remove the battery and connect the charger and try starting the system.
  • if it works then there are two things possible.
  1. battery gone.
  2. IC responsible for charging is gone.
i hope you can figure out the problem through this.

Thank you

Toshiba Satellite a215-s7437 will not boot at all - black screen


It sounds like two possible things. One thing may be that your screen is not working anymore. Can you get a monitor and plug it into your port located on the side of your laptop? If your screen pops up on the monitor this tells us your screen is either in need of replacement or a connection may be loose.

If that is not the case......

Another thing is your hard drive may not be initiating. If you feel confident enough I would open the back where the hard drive is located and make sure the hard drive is not loose. Does it give you any beeping sounds when you turn it on? Can you count the number of beeps? This will tell you what the problem is on boot up. Also, is it a black screen with a cursor blinking?
