Hp pavilion dm4 laptop no display in built in display, but showing display in external display


It could be a bad video cable or a failed screen. You could try reseating the cable at both ends. You might try moving the screen forward and back to see if the screen flickers at all. That would confirm the cable. If the backlight went out on the screen itself, you should still be able to see the image under bright light on the screen. It just would not be back lighted. If the screen is bad, take it out, look at the make and model of the actual screen (a Dell laptop could have a Samsung screen, etc) and then look that up specifically on eBay or Amazon for the best price.

No LCD Display on Dell Vostro 1700 - 17"


It sounds like you have been pretty thorough trying to resolve the lcd problem

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps

Screen will not load just white lines


Hi,

Does external display work fine? If you have not checked, connect an external display like desktop monitor or a LED TV which has VGA connector to your laptop's vga port. You may have to use some fn keys combination to switch from laptop display to external. If external display works fine then check the display cable connecting laptop motherboard to laptop display. And also check laptop LCD/LED screen. You may have to try another with another screen in such scenario.

Have a Gateway Notebook KAV-60 with a broken screen. Trying to connect to an external monitor without any prompts or commands, as I can't see the screen. With an Acer Netbook I just plugged in the


Make sure the vga cable is in tight on the kav-60 and the external monitor.

Try the keystrokes to toggle the display. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left on the keyboard then hit the key F1 thru F12 that toggles the display. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have LCD/CRT on it or it will have the icon of a display. The display toggles in three stages ( laptop only, external only or both laptop and external).

How to connect dish tv to my laptop? It has inbuilt tv tuner.


Your Lenovo laptop can be hooked up your TV if you have a model that is capable of TV output. Newer models with HDMI ports can easily connect to newer TVs that have HDMI input jacks. For older laptops or TVs, you will need other adapters or cables. The most common of these is an S-video jack, which has a small round connector with several pins arranged in a circle. For S-video connections, you will need to hook up the audio from your laptop to your TV separately.

Things You'll Need

HDMI cable

USB-to-HDMI adapter

OR

S-video cable

Audio cables

HDMI Connection

Turn on your Lenovo laptop and HDMI-enabled TV.

Connect one end of your HDMI cable to the HDMI port on your laptop. Lenovo's IdeaPad series has these ports. If you have a ThinkPad or other Lenovo model, connect a USB-to-HDMI adapter to your HDMI cable, then plug the USB end of the adapter into any USB port.

Press the "FN" and "F7" keys on your keyboard. This will switch the laptop's display to the TV. You can then use your TV screen as a monitor or use the laptop's DVD drive to watch movies on your TV.

S-Video Connection

Turn off your laptop and TV. Connect your S-video cable to the laptop on one end and the TV on the other.

Plug audio cables into your audio out jacks on the laptop. If you do not have stereo audio output, you can use the headphone/speaker jack. Add a splitter adapter to split the sound into stereo instead of mono (single speaker). Plug the other ends of the audio cables into your TV.

Turn on the laptop and let it boot up. Then turn on the TV. Right-click on your desktop screen, then select "Properties."

Click the "Settings" tab, the "Advanced" button, then "ATI displays" or "Display device" or the similarly worded option, depending on your system. It is not the "On screen displays" option in any version.

Click on the option that suits your system, such as "TV" or "LCD." Click "Apply," then "Yes" to confirm, if necessary. Click "OK" to exit. Your display should be visible on the TV screen. If not, try pressing "FN" and "F7" to toggle the display to the external screen.

Can't connect to external monitor or to Sony bravia tv. When vga connected nothing happens at all on laptop but external monitor says " check cable" ( have tried another cable ). If connected in power off...


You need to:

- Connect everything with the laptop turned off
- Boot the laptop
- Use the Fn key plus F8 or F9 (I'm trying from a small picture of the keyboard!) to cycle through the external display options.

When i switch on vertical lines all over screen moving lines horizontally last night eventually settled and picture fine. this am no such luck any tips


Hello !

This problem can be brought about by less volage going to the LCD or having faulty flat cable ( broken) so you need to check this lcd cable if fine.
get another LCD ie just to confirm the state of your LCD I mean swap it beacuse the LCD could be damaged during drops .
Last but not list get your multimeter get the voltage readings going to the LCD.
Check if the lcd cable is seated correctly on its slot

Good luck

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

My screen wont turn on


Hiya, have you tried plugging in an external monitor to the Blue VGA port of the laptop ?

If so, do you get any display then ?

Hint : you need to plug in the external display 1st, then turn on the laptop. If the External monitor doesn't come on, then you may need to press the Function key on the laptop & the F4 key (Or whichever shows a monitor logo) to get the laptop to switch to external monitor.

If you CAN get display on the external monitor then the problem could either be that the Invertor for your laptop screen has blown, or, the backlight for your Laptop Screen has broken, or the Laptop screen itself has gone faulty. In rare cases, the cable from the Laptop Motherboard to the screen may be faulty or have come away form the connector on either end.

Hope this helps.

Dell Inspiron 6000 to TV


On a dell laptop, the key combo FN  F8 cycles through the display options. Laptop screen, External screen, Laptop and External screen at the same time.  Try pressing the FN F8 key to get the video to display on both laptop and lcd and the same time.  If that doesn't work you can also change the settings on what the laptop does when the lid is closed.  Check the power settings in the control panel.
