Screen wont work

Try the following solutions:
  1. Connect the laptop to an external monitor,and if it works,there is a problem with your LCD.The problem could be that the back light isn't functioning or your LCD has broken.Go to the service center and get it replaced.
  2. If in the above case,your external monitor too shows no response,that means that your graphics have been spoilt.You need to replace the motherboard in this case.
  3. Try resetting the BIOS manually and then re-starting,if this works,you need not take he laptop to the service center

Lcd monitar

If you use OS Windows, try this :
Start Menu - Control Panel - Display (double click) - in tab Setting - read this sentences :
Drag the monitor icons to match the physical arrangement of your monitor
Click in the right-mouse on screen 1, click in "Attached". May be you can see LCD. Or, try this : you need monitor CRT of computer. Plug in to slot VGA inside your laptop. And restart your laptop. See in your monitor CRT. If your monitor CRT will see your display and your LCD laptop didn't see anything, it's that mean for your laptop is broken in video display onboard. Replace new one of your laptop mainboard.
Or, press button of 'Fn' and 'F3', will be switched between your LCD laptop or other monitor in your slot VGA.

There are a few possibilities here... It sounds like a Graphics Card problem. It may well be an issue on a certain resolution mode. Try changing the modes in windows control panel to see if you can replicate the problem. If you cant then it will likely be the Bios that needs an upgrade (Flash)
There is also a small chance that the LCD Cable needs to be reseated. One other tip is to plug in an external monitor and then check to see if that happens on the external monitor. If it only happens on the LCD then there wont be an issue with the graphics card and then leans towards a LCD Screen or cable problem. More diagnostics at:

Monitor is blank!!!!

Firstly, the LCD+external setting will switch one or the other or both on.

Secondly, if you go into your display properties (or even the advanced page where your video card additional features are) you can usually select which monitor is "primary".

I suspect that your external display is primary, and the LCD screen is not "enabled" or used as part of the desktop.

The settings are all there, it's just a matter of finding them (depending on what video card is in whatever laptop you have)

This might have happened in the first place if you accidentally hit "Fn" and one of the "F" keys up the top. Fn + F6 on my laptop will switch LCD/external monitors on and off. (for example) There is usually a little blue picture on one of the "F" keys to denote that function.
