Absolutly no image just blank screen after bootup. If I connect using serial cable to a monitor I can see the image, what could possibly be the problem?

There could be a screen fault or the connection to the motherboard is damaged, but try the driver first to see if it is corrupt. Go to My computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down the list for graphics adapter, click on the '+' sign and right click on your controller and select uninstal. Re boot your pc and hopefully your screen is working again, if not it is more serious and needs expert referal.

Just bought HDMI to DVI cable to connect my VL193 to my HP laptop - unable to get the monitor to "pick up" the signal - just a blank screen - if I power it on & off, just goes right to power...


Hi

Desktop PCs automatically seek an external monitor to output graphics to. Laptops default settings send the image to the internal monitor. You need to manually instruct the laptop to export the image to an external monitor.

With the cable connected and the monitor powered up, try pressing the Fn key (bottom left of keyboard) on the laptop and simultaneously pressing the function key at the top ofthe keyboard with an image of 2 monitors (often F5 or F6) to sent d the image to the external screen.

I hope this helps.

Display is all garbled on bootup, cannot read image.


Test if it's your graphics chip by connecting a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port,reboot the laptop, and look to see if same thing happens on the external monitor.. If it does, then you have a failing gpu/graphics chip.

Lcd screen not working


Does the laptop bootup and the hard disk spin up?
To determine if the video card is faulty or the LCD screen is faulty, connect an external monitor to the external video port on the laptop. Power up the external monitor first and then the laptop, the video information should automatically switch to the monitor
If you get a normal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is the :CD screen provided the laptops boots up properly.
Get back to me with the results of this test so I can advise you what to do next.

White light on monitor when it is turned on. nothing else


You could have a faulty LCD screen or a faulty video card.
To determine which fault you have, connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop, power up the monitor first then bootup the laptop. The video will automatically switch to the monitor.
If you do not get a Windows image on the monitor then you have a faulty video card and this is a motherboard problem.
If you get a normal Windows image then the video card is OK and the fault is in the LCD or the video cable/connector.
First try reseating the video cable/connector which connects the LCD screen to the motherboard.
If the doesn't solve your problem the the fault is most likely the LCD screen.

When the Sony Vaio laptop is powered up there are missing(dark)


Connect an external monitor to the video connector on the laptop and bootup the laptop. If you don't get an image on the external monitor then press the blue Fn key plus the one of the function keys with the screen/monitor symbol, (this toggles the display between the LCD and external video connector).
If you cannot get an image then the you have a faulty video card. The video card is part of the motherboard and cannot be fixed, you have to get a replacement motherboard.

When you boot up without the external monitor and you look at the LCD from an acute angle and you can see a slight and dark image, this indicates you have a backlight problem.
The image on the external monitor indicates that you have a faulty inverter that provides power for the backlight panel or a faulty backlight panel, the inverter and the LCD panel can be replaced fairly easily but it is not cheap, but it would be cheaper that buying a new laptop.

If the external monitor works and you can use it this way, this would be the cheapest option, but it would not be portable.

Screen is white


You could have a video controller problem or a LCD screen problem, what you are seeing is the backlighting but no video information.
To check if you have a video problem, connect an external monitor to your laptop and bootup your laptop, if you see Windows booting up the external monitor then the video controller is OK, and your problem is the LCD screen or the video cable connection on the motherboard (may need reseating).
If you cannot fix the LCD screen then use your laptop with an external monitor.

IBM Laptop A31 2652 Garbled video even at initial boot screen


Connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first and then bootup the laptop. The Windows image will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If the images is OK then the video card is OK.
From the description of the fault, it indicates that the fault could be a faulty video cable or video connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.
Get back to me if you still have problems together with any error messages etc.

The monitor screen blank / black and power on off switch flashes


You could check the VGA cable from the replicator to the monitor, but a problem with that will usually cause a "NO SIGNAL" message to appear. So your issue seems to lie within the monitor. It could be that the backlight has quit. That can be determined by booting the laptop and connecting it to the replicator, or perhaps to the monitor directly, and observe the screen using a good flashlight, place the flashlight flush on the screen in an area where you would expect to see an icon or some recognizable image. Look closely to see if the image can be seen. If the image is there, then the screen is ok but the backlight is out. The problem is usually the inverter. A reputable shop might be able to replace that.
