Ajk,

If you need/want the unit to remain portable, you'll have to get the light replaced. If you feel comfortable working on electronics and if the tube is available to the consumer. Then you might be able to do the task yourself. In order to advise you better on part availability and replacement instructions I would need to have the brand and model # of the laptop.

Now if you just need to be able to see the screen and portability is NOT an issue, then there is a vga connector on the back of your laptop. Plug an external monitor into that connector and turn on the laptop. If the image doesn't come up on the monitor immediately then push <FN> and <F5> at the same time until the display comes up.

Hope this helps
Dave

Remove the RAM and start, see if it beeps and/or shows something on the screen. Try with the external screen too.

Cant ge my hp tablet to turn on


If it doesn't anything at all, not a indicator light nothing, it is likely the battery is the problem and will need replacing. Make sure the charger is good first. If the battery is completely open it will not run even with the AC cord connected.

forgive but i do not believe its a screen problem if it was when you connected it to the vgha it will have shown your display. you may have a VGA problem you might have to consider refering to a technician to have it fixed for you

Ive just bought a hp 620 notebook pentium dual core t4 i got it all set up and running an hour later the screen was all fuzzy and rolling and cant get anything please can you tell me what is wrong ?


Hi,

The video driver of your laptop may be failing. You just need to update it if restarting the computer doesn't fix it. Check HP website and download the on compatible with your operating system.

If this doesn't work, try to check BIOS (by pressing F2..F10..depends on what key is designed for it..before windows loads up) if you still have the same problem. If yes, get a replacement, the LCD inverter or LCD cable may be faulty. But if this will not appear in the BIOS, the video card may be faulty.

Hope this helps.

E system 1212 Laptop won't switch on. Power


Laptops are so integrated that usually a system failure that involves power issues such as in your case where you cant get it turn on with anything on the screen mean the mainboard (motherboard) is damaged. This usually leads to buying a new laptop or paying for the board to be replaced which usually costs as much as the laptop.

There are cracks from the bottom right corner of the screen right up to the top left and when i turn it on the light still works but i cant see anything


Your laptop was dropped and the LCD backlight is what is lighting your screen. You need a replacement LCD screen.
