Is it going into stand by or actually shutting off? The only way to tell is when you turn it on does it jump straight into windows or does go through a list of things including how much memory there is?

    Sounds to me like it is going into stand by......after sitting idle for a set amount of time it shuts drives and what not down to conserve power. So when you hit the power button after it turns off do you see a dell logo or see the scrolling wondows logo?

My computer starts normally, Once logged in the screen goes black. If I hold up a flash light I can see the screen a tiny bit... What is going on? I have tried restarting, taking the battery out


try doing a system restore on it.. more than likely you have a virus that is turning the backlight down to reduce visibility on the screen. definelty disconnect from your network while doing this... alot of times hackers will do this so you wont be able to see them navigating through your files..

My screen is black, my computer has a light that shows when its on, the lights on but the screen is still black.


If your computer is older or you've used it ALOT and usually just close it and don't shut it off alot then you could need a new battery or you might have your light turned off on your screen

Monitor goes blank after 3 seconds -Samsung SyncMaster 920NW


Could be a power issue. If it doesn't show anything at all then that may be the case. It may also be the display itself. It would be a costly repair so you might be better off finding a new monitor.

Screen goes black, but power light is on (not blinking)


The problem is not with your screen. Its the problem of Video Card of your system which is unable to send Video Signals to the Screen.

Screen goes black and SD-ms (memory card slot) light comes on..


Change the memory chip to another slot or swap two memory chips if you have two memory chips on both slots, see what happened and come back to me again.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Monitor going black


HP's are known for bad capacitors in the power supply.
Replacing them is simple if you know how..not so simple if you don't.
Try your local TV repair centre. It should not cost alot to have the capacitors replaced.

Hope it helps =)

Screen goes black and power light goes out after a few minutes


it would seem that one of the internal components has failed / overheated Dont open the rear of the monitor !

if pos drop it into your nearest pc repair shop and have is serviced it may just need cleaned to free it from dust build up
on the inner parts this may be causing the unit to over heat
