Is this a brand new computer? Was it displaying properly before and just suddenly started showing up dark?

Most laptop monitors have a brightness control. It is possible that yours may have been inadvertently turned all the way down (it can happen accidentally). It is usually accessed by a function selector on the lower left side of the keyboard in conjunction with a function key, like F7, F8, F9, etc... you should check your manual first to be sure.

If that doesn't help, then it is possible the backlight for the LCD screen has gone dead. Those can be replaced by authorized service centers.

Cant turn brightness up on screen


IS the screen really dark and can you see a "ghost image" when you tilt the laptop back, looking along the edges? (from an acute angle)
IF you do see a faint image, your laptop screen's power inverter may be bad, or the screen's "back light" may be bad... Take it to a shop to have them verify this issue. Hope this helps.

The screen is really dark


Locate the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard. It may be on the bottom left side with dark blue letters. Locate the two "brightness" keys near the top of the keyboard. These will be in the "F" keys, possibly if F6 and F7. They should have little sun pictures or something similar to indicate brightness. Hold down the Fn key while pressing F7, or whichever "F" key your laptop uses to increase brightness. Tap F7 repeatedly until you reach the desired brightness. Fn must be held down as you continue to tap. Hope this helps.

I replaced the monitor on this labtop, but when I turn it on the screen comes on but nothing else, tried it on a desktop screen and it's booting but not on the labtop, help


You say you replaced the monitor. How did you do that? Did you just replace the screen? If so,the inverter is probably bad. Look really carefully at the screen when you start the computer--can you see the images but they are really dark? If so, then the backlight needs to be replaced.

Hey i have an ACER ASPIRE 7720G T5250/160GB/2 GB/NVIDIA/ WIN7 SHOT DOWN SOMETIMES 1 / week SCREEN BLACK RAM PROBLEM ?


by screen black, do you mean constantly black or does it turn on then back off...
If its just constantly dark when you have power and you know its switched on, get a torch and shine it onto the screen... if you look really close you might be able to see your desktop if you can then it tends to mean your backlight inside of your screen has blown. you can buy the replacement part from acer or send it of to be repaired.
Fixing that problem isnt easy.

Dark Screen


Sounds like you broke your backlight and need a new LCD screen. A new one can be found here for $70.

When switch in on laptop it goes screen dark why


I'm not really sure I understand.
You apparently are able to turn the laptop on.
How long before it goes dark?
If it goes dark right after the Windows splash screen, then I would suspect it's a video driver problem. Try starting it in safe mode to rule this out.
If the screen does not go dark in safe mode, you've located the problem. You'll have to uninstall any video card software and download the correct drivers.

My laptop screen will not turn on. The laptop turns on & I hear it working, the screen will just not turn on.


Hi

This sounds very much a backlight or invertor issue and will need to be replaced. If it is the backlight then a screen replacement at about £140 is a rough guide. IF its the invertor then they tend to range from £10 to £40 and really both jobs should be done by a reputable computer retailer.

Thanks

I have an Evesham Explorer A5500 notebook Laptop and earlier when i was usuing it the screen became covered in white lines i rebooted to try and fix the problem but now when i turn on my laptop the screen...


Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).

Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.

Have you installed the Lenovo EnergyCut drivers? Without it, laptop may not work properly and turns extra hot. Try letting it cool down before you try again.
