No video


Not sure whether you have a laptop or desktop but your issue is either the lcd screen or the video card. To isolate the problem try plugging another monitor to the system. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original screen is bad and the video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor does not display anything, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If Laptop try the steps below:

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see 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 be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without 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 correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally 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 light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

L no display


If it seems like it booted up, you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights, (except the display is black) then try the steps below.

For a laptop:

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see 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 be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without 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 correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally 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 light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.



For a Desktop:



Try using another monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the display then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not show on the display then you Video Card is bad.

When i connect the external monitor it will display windows starting up and then goes to desktop background no icons or other display? do i need to buy another laptop that works or am i not doing something...


You computer is most likely working fine. When you setup a multiple monitor system you have a couple options as to how it works. The defualt is to just extend the desktop to the new screen. This means it is just a larger desktop which you can scroll the mouse over to. You can also set it up to duplicate the screen on both monitors. To change these settings you need to go into the display properties.

How do I make my screen size on my computer smaller. Too big for the size of my comp.


Right click on the desktop and select Properties right at the bottom of the pop-up menu. Then a "Display Properties" window will open. Click on Settings. In this tab you should see a slider bar with the title "Screen resolution", (drag this to the right to make the screen more detailed/smaller and your icons smaller) or (drag it to the left to make the icons larger and the screen size less detailed/larger). Then hit Apply.

NB: If your screen goes blank it means that your display card cannot handle the given resolution. If this happens immediatelly hold down the"Enter" key on your keyboard until the display comes back. Then try a lower resolution.

Please rate me high.
Thanks.

I use a projector with my laptop when teaching school. Suddenly my projector will only display my desktop MINUS the icons. The mouse doesn't show and neither do anything I try to view like files or...


Sounds like your projector was told to be an extended desktop, but not in the usual place, which is to the right of your original screen.
One thing you might try, uninstalling and reinstalling the video card drivers if you can get them easily. Another thing is while your hooked up to the projector, if your using XP, is right click on the desktop, click Properties, Settings, then you should see 2 monitor icons. They should be side by side, if not make them side by side.
You could also make the projector your primary monitor, this will focus it on your desktop as if you were using your laptop screen. You might try this first to see if it corrects your problem.

Vostro 1510 vga to tv vga desktop picture no icons on tv


It's likely that your OS, whatever that is, wrongly identified the display size of your TV and it set the screen resolution too high, and you may even have what is known as a "virtual" desktop that is bigger than the physical screen size.
To ensure this is the case, move the mouse pointer towards the edges of the TV screen and see if your desktop scrolls along, and your icons and other stuff shows up. If this is the case, then adjust your resolution to a smaller size, say, from 1920 x 1200 to 1024 x 768, click Apply and then Ok.
That should fix the problem temporarily, but there's no guarantee that it will not do the same thing next time you connect your pc to your TV set. I have experienced the same thing with my laptop and HDTV, and I have had to repeat the process again.
Good luck!
