Ok, first, as for your hard drive, 9 times out of 10 your hard drive is fine if you don't hear a clicking noise. Also have you try-ed plugging in your s-video cable to the monitor or vga cable to the screen? after you turn on the laptop with the power on? I can help you with hooking up you laptop to the monitor, just drop me your e-mail address.

Have a nice day!

My laptop fell of my bed when I left to do something and came back and it was like this the screen is blurry I can turn it on and off and charge it but the screen stays the same please help


I think you have cracked the LCD screen so it is not an easy fix and probably not worth it. Did you back it up on a cloud somewhere? Do you have another monitor you can hook up to it and use that? I would hook up another monitor so I can access the start button etc, get my stuff off of it on a CD or flash drive etc or just use it with an external monitor

Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

My computer has reand black lines all over


To determine if the video card or the LCD screen is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop, power up the external monitor first the boot up your laptop. The video data will automatically divert to the external monitor. If the image on the external monitor is normal the the fault is in the LCD screen.
Either way, I suggest you return your laptop to the supplier because it should be still under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you could void your warranty.

Wrong monitor HP F2105 goes black after two secs when connected to HP G72 Laptop?


If the monitor works fine when tested on another device like if you have a desktop or a friend will let you hook it up to theirs, etc. then I suspect the laptop does not have a compatible driver or just cannot drive the monitor with the onboard video card. That monitor may be too much work for the laptop. Also, have you looked into how much just the lcd would be then maybe see if you can get help installing it yourself?

Dropped laptop, screen with lots of multicolor horizontal and vertical lines, looks like a crack but screen intact. How do I fix?


try re-seating the cable leading from the motherboard into the LCD assembly. If you're lucky it may just be a detached/loose data cable. To get to it you'll have to remove the plastic bezel between the keyboard and the LCD, or you may need to remove the entire top bezel. I'm not familiar with your model so I cant say for sure.
Also, if you have an external monitor hook it on and see if you get the same distorted image, just to be sure that it's not a motherboard issue.
If the cable re-seating doesnt help and the image on the external monitor is OK then you'll probably have to replace the LCD screen.

My screen has horizontal lines across half of the screen. I hooked up to a external monitor and it worked fine. What is the problem?


Hi,
It would physically be in the LCD screen of your computer. If the monitor is working fine therefore there is nothing wrong with the video processing output or the drivers in the operating system. It would be in internal crack on the LCD or a loose connection with the LCD screen and the motherboard.
Its best to have your laptop checked by a service technician and dont just disassemble it by yourself to prevent accidents. Worst case is that the LCD needs to be replaced if really found cracked/defective.
Hope this helps.

Hook up a working external monitor and see what the video looks like. If the video looks right on the external monitor, then that means there is a problem with the LCD.

If you hook an external monitor and you still have half of the screen cutoff then its a problem with the motherboard.

My guess is there maybe a crack in your LCD screen and thats why you have the circle in there.

ACER cracked screen..external monitor???


Hi there.
The keyboard toggle you are using is the correct one.
Sometimes you have to hit Fn + F5 a couple of times to stay on there is no real set time. Make sure Fn + F6 is on so the laptop screen stays on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Black Screen


The first thing I would do after turning the computer on is check to see if the video output is being directed to the LCD screen. The output can be directed using the Fn key along with the key with the picture of the 2 monitors on the Function keys at the top of the keyboard. Hold down the Fn key and tap the other key once or twice,
Next, hook the computer up to an external monitor. Do the same thing with the Fn key to see if it's the LCD screen.
If the external monitor works, then you haven't correctly hooked up the LCD screen or it's bad.
