Screen goes blank after booted up

When I boot my emachine laptop the screen goes black about 10 seconds after the boot is completed all programs are loaded and the icons are all loaded. This also happens to an external monitor when it is attached in all 3 modes. I have put the hard drive in another laptop (same model) and everything works fine. Have tried swapping batteries and external power supply and tried safe mode as well no help. Model # M5309

It is possible that you have to display connectors in the back of your computer. Turn your pc off and plug your screen in the other connector and reboot. If it still occurs, you may have to disable a connector. Please, give me a feed-back of this solution.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Boot holding power and home at same time. After 10 seconds, release power and continue to hold home screen for another 30 seconds. The screen will stay blank but should put phone in DFU recovery mode. Plug into iTunes and recover.

Screen goes blank after afew second on ac inly


Try booting to the Safe Mode (F8 at boot) see if you get any further. Also, does the system complete boot (DO you hear windows sounds?) or is the system just hanging after the Splash screen (You can also try an external monitor and press Fn+F8 to enable the external display) If you can get video externally, then is it likely a LCD or video card failure. If you can't boot to the safe mode and you do not hear the Windows Welcome sound that normally plays at the desktop, then the system is not booting and you have either a hard drive failure and/or an operating system failure.
See if you can boot to the BIOS (F2 at boot), then reload the default settings and reboot.

If you suspect the OS is a problem, boot to the XP CD, then run CHKDSK /R and see if that helps
You can also run system Diagnostics by pressing Fn+the Power button

My srceen goes Blank


Hi,

first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

Dell inspiron 6400 display goes off < 1 min after switch on time


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

If you see a very dim image or black screen or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

The buzzing sound is most likely the inverter problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Laptop screen died


Try pressing F8 at boot up see if the safe mode menu comes in. If it does boot into safe mode and once in windows change the screen properties i.e uninstall as when you reboot in normal mode the windows will recognize the monitor and install drivers for it. If you cannot see the sub menu after pressing F8 then there is possibly a power supply to the monitor problem or the monitor is faulty. You can get reconditioned units for this laptop will try eBay first. Check out the prices then decide to proceed or replace.

Thanks J
