Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My son dropped his Compaq Presaris B3800, and the LCD screen no longer works. The computer works fine with an external monitor - which leads me to think that he has damaged the LCD screen backlight. Any ideas / notes / pictures on how I can remove the old backlight and replace it? Where can I purchase a new one online?

The screen polarization has gone bad. it is not worth the trouble. if it is laptop take it to a tchnician to be replaced. They are usually extremlely pricy and cost almost as much as replacing the laptop and will probably be an upgrade as well. if it is a laptop you can always use the external monitor port and use a different monitor.

Compaq 610 when i start vdu is white screen and


hI,
if the screen is completely white the problem could be a bad LCD cable. To cross check if the problem with the LCD or the motherboard. Connect an external monitor to the laptop. Tap the Fn + F8 key together to get the display to toggle to the external monitor if the display comes on the external monitor without any problems the problem is with the LCD and you would have to take the laptop for repairs.

The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.

Can you plug in an external monitor? If the problem persists on the external monitor it may be a hardware fault, heat problem or a driver issue. If the problem is only with the internal LCD then possibly the cable between the laptop and the LCD is faulty or the LCD is damaged somehow.

Tapping the edges to "fix" the issue does suggest ath hardware fault though.
