The inverter board is alway the cause, find a similar working Laptop and try its inverter board and see if it works, if not the backlight is the cause and you need to find or buy a new backlight.

Hp pavilion dv7-4165dx black screen


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

Help please, just replaced lid on emachines d620, all went well, just turned it on and screen is completely black. The logo shows very feigntly as it powers up, boots up fine but completely black screen.


It sounds like the cord connecting the lcd screen to the laptops motherboard has been disconnected. You will probably have to disassemble the screen portion of the laptop and reconnect the power wires.

Laptop Windows XP has black screen, was able to us BartPE to run Scan Disk which found nothing, but still won't boot and has a black screen after removing BartPE. Is there anything else that can be done?


Hi bradley ryko

Sorry to hear you are having issues. This is a tricky one as it sounds like more than one thing has gone wrong at the same time.
Let's list what we know
1. Laptop powers up as you have used BartPE
2. OS (Operating System) may or may not be working.
3. BIOS may or may not be working

Please try connecting a different monitor (to the blue connector at the sides or back of the laptop) that you know is working and report back to me. I assume that the monitor was working as you used BartPE.

We need to get some video signal before we can do anything else. I assume when you say you have a black screen you mean the screen is not working at all. EG: you see nothing at all on it when you start the laptop. Please confirm this and report back.

Many thanks bradley_ryko

Best regards, Phil

Turned laptop on, but got black screen only


if nothing is displayed on your screen then we have two options and they are:
1. try and connec an external VDU to your laptop and power up again
2. Check out the RAM and replace it with new ones or certify its working capability on another laptop.
