Laptop starts up then the screen stays black


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Buy a new computer from the sound of it, or take it to a repairer, if the screen is white instantly after power on, there is noting that you can do yourself.

Where i find the graphic card in my laptop IBM Thinkpad T40


The graphics card is built-in on the motherboard and cannot be changed.
If you are having problems with the graphics card, try re-installing the video driver.
To test the video card, connect an external monitor to the video port on the T40 power up the monitor first then boot up the T40. The video information will transfer to the monitor automatically, provided the video card is OK.

Hi There,

Your laptop needs some troubleshooting and here's the fastest (and free) way to locate your issue. Get to a friend's place (or at home) where there's a regular desktop computer monitor and connect your laptop to it. Look up at the top row of "F" keys (1 thru 12) and find the one that looks like it has to do with a monitor. With your laptop connected to the external monitor, press the "fn" key in the lower left of keyboard and hold it doen while your press the monitor transfer F key above.

If your laptop's normal display shows on the big monitor, then you just have a bad sceen that needs replacement. If all is dark on both, then your video card inside the laptop has faild and a new motherboard is needed.

Kind Regards,

TheSelkie

So I'm turning on my inspiron 5100 and all i get is a white screen. It sounds like it's on but the screen remains blank white?


Hi Donny,

A white screen usually means the LCD panel has failed/worn out. Here's an easy way to make sure. Get your laptop to an external monitor, whether at your home or a friend's place, and with the laptop off and the external monitor off, connect the monitor video (vga) cable to your laptop. Turn them both on and then on your Dell laptop hold down the fn key down in the bottom left hand corner of the keyboard and press the F8 key up at the top. That transfers the video signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor shows your laptops normal desktop and icons, then you know for sure the LCD screen on your laptop is worn out. If you get the same white screen on the external monitor, it means the video card/controller on the motherboard of your laptop has worn out and you can move ahead with deciding on repairs or other options.

Good Luck.

PS....if the F8 key doesn't transfer the video signal. look at all the F keys for one that says CRT or one that has a little picture of a monitor to transfer the signal.

Unable to view screen - computer starts up and no lcd usage. I tried connecting another monitor and doesn't work either. Could it be the video card. Thank you!


Press the combination keys Fn+F... key that switches on LCD or external monitor. If that solution does not work...it means that your video card chip is dead.

Help me!!! Black screen ONLY!


IF you hooked another monitor to your laptop did you transfer the screen to the other monitor if so and you got nothing i would say that you had a video card problem. it may be time to get a new laptop it will cost you about 1/2 the cost of a new one to fix it.

No Display, monitor won't come on.


hi try this or the site below
Monitor Problems:

THE COMPUTERS SEEMS TO BE WORKING, BUT THE SCREEN IS BLANK.
- Check the monitor if turned on.
- Check all the LED power on the monitor, if it has one.
- Adjust brightness and contrast controls all the way to the maximum.
- Check the video cable from the monitor to the computer to be sure if it is properly connected.
- Check the power cable. If it is connected properly at both ends.
- Try different monitor on your computer. If it does not work, the display card is likely at fault. Replace the display card.
- Try your monitor on a different computer. If it does not work, replace the monitor or have it repaired by a trained technician.

COMPUTER BOOTS, BUT DISPLAYS “JUNK” ON THE SCREEN
- It may be that the display card is defective. Try a different card. If it works the first card may be bad.
- Try the suspected bad card on another computer. If it displays the same thing it is conclusive that the card is bad.

DISPLAY IS DIM, OVERLY BRIGHT, OR BLURRY, OR UNPLEASANT.DISPLAY IS OFF CENTER. LEFT OR RIGHT SIDE OF MONITOR IS OBSCURED.
- Try adjusting the control knobs located on either the front or back of the monitor. It maybe necessary o open the monitors casing to get the proper adjustment controls. In this case be very careful because there are high voltages in the monitor.
THE VIDEO DISPLAY FADES AND BRIGHTENS, OR IS WARY.
- The voltage may be fluctuating due to so many appliances or electric devices on he same branch circuit.
- Turn off other appliances and peripherals, such as printers, external modem, refrigerator, microwave oven, transformer, etc. and see if that solves the problem. If the problem persists, try swapping out the display cards. If changing the monitor solved the problem, repair or replace the monitor.
IMAGE IS NOT STRAIGHT ACROSS THE SCREEN
- If the monitor is still under warranty, bring it back to the dealer for adjustment. If the you want to do it your self, bare in mind that this is potentially dangerous procedure because it must be done while he monitor is on and there is very high voltages around the picture tube.
WARNING: THIS IS A DANGEROUS PROCEDURE!!!
- Open the monitor casing and loosen the clamp holding he coils around he picture tube. You can loosen them (usually there’s a wing nut) and a rotate the coil assembly until the picture strengthens.

Printer problem


You have asked this same question under a different name several times or you are copying someones question. Please do not do this and clarify your question. Asking a question several times by a different name is only going to clog the FIXYA system.
You have not given enough information for this to be solved. What O.S. is this? Have you tried to install the drivers again and have you updated the drivers? What kind of printer is this? Make and model number.

Error message after start up of Gateway Laptop


Neither of you have given the Printer Make and Model number. We can not help without this. This seems to be going around in circles on the board and asked different ways by different people. I have seen this at least 3 times now.
