If you are familier with opening your laptop up, check the following: the monitor connector cable has not come loose, if this is connected securely, I would advise that you take your laptop into your local PC repairs shop to show them exactly what is happening...they will be able to diagnose the fault with a very short space of time.

Also: when you turn on the laptop, do you get any images, writing on it at all, ie, the boot up screen, does it appear? If so, and you get nothing else after the post up screen, you have a problem with the onboard graphics card.

If you do not get anything at all when you press the on button and everything seems to be working ok except you just have a black screen, there is a 99% chance that the actual screen has gone, in which case you will need to have the screen replaced. This can be a costly repair and it sometimes is not economically logical to replace the screen as the cost would be sometime greater than actually going out and buying a new laptop!

Hope this help

Invalid format when connecting my HP desktop to a 50in Zenth

I'm going to assume that the problem you're having is that the output resolution from your laptop isn't compatible with your tv. If you go to the control panel, go into Appearance and Personalization, click on Display,Adjust Screen Resolution, you should be able to change the resolution settings for that second display until it is compatible with your tv.

I want to connect my desktop to my laptop

It doesn't work that way. You can't hook a desktop up to a laptops screen. You can hook your laptop up to a tv however for a bigger display, but that isn't what you need.

Acer Veriton 6900 Desktop says no signal and the screen turns off. The towers power light stays on but the fan isn't running.


Change the power supply and restart your pc. This will happen when the power supply has gone bad. It sends power to low voltage items but not the needed voltage to power the system on.

Good Luck

When watching videos on youtube with my geforce 8400 it lags at points, sometimes it completely freezes my screen or blue screens. I installed the drivers, and i know it isn't over heating because i...

there aremany reasons why your lags or freezes.
  1. the RAM module isn't enough for you to view your videos,
  2. there is something wrong with your video card
  3. you have too many open programs.
  4. the bandwidth of your ISP service is slow during that particular time you are online.
First checkfor the specific problem. By using either borrowed or old components . -ram orvideo card. solutionsto this would be:
  1. replace the RAM module to a higher value.
  2. replacee the video card
  3. close programs that are not needed at the moment.
It could be either one, two orthree are the cause of the problem.

Help.. my acer aspire computer screen has turned vertical on my notebook and the cursor isn't working.. what do I do?

Well, to get the screen back to normal, press Ctrl + Alt + Up Arrow. As for the cursor, try rebooting the computer after changing the screen back to normal. If that doesn't work, try another external mouse to get to the mouse settings from the control panel and see if anything has changed.
I hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

I sent i a question yesterday .Still I'm unable to

If the screen shows running in lower power as an error. I think your powersupply isn't supplying enough power to the computer, and probably needs to be replaced.
