Try to attach an external monitor to see if it is really booting up. And if it does boot up with the external monitor, problem is with the lcd... you may want to reseat the lcd cables inside. And if all else fails run diagnostics to see if lcd needs to be replaced. Could also be a software or OS issue that is why booting it up on an external monitor will help isolate the issue to check if there's an error message that will come up.

Thanks and good luck! =)

Why Dell inspiron 6400 LCD screen goes blank when I unplug the ac adapter from laptop?


  1. Restart the computer.
  2. As the computer boots, press <F12>
  3. when the Dell Splash Screen appears.
  4. At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics and press <enter>
  5. A graphical menu listing all discovered devices in the system is now displayed and the express diagnostics should run (Takes about 4 minutes).
This will test the hardware on your computer.
I am thinking it could be the battery but this is just to be sure.

Model S400CA-CA006H, Power ON, only back lit blank display. Battery icon is green while the BULB icon LED is orange in colour.


  • rjsymmes has the most accurate solution. Start with a battery replacement. Next course of action is to use a Bootable Media Source (Windows Disk or Recovery Disk) to see if the laptop responds and can have the Start Up repaired. If a Boot Media fails, then examine RAM, Hard Drive removal, then boot. Last resort Motherboard.

Compaq f756NR laptop won't boot.


I think this is a problem with the laptop's LCD display. To verify this connect the laptop to an external display and see if it resolves the issue. If it does then its confirmed that its a display related issue. Since the issue has appeared suddenly I dont think its a serious problem. May be just loose/disconnected connectors. Should be a 10 minute job for a qualified technician.
If the external display too doesn't come on then its an issue with the graphics card and you may need to replace it.

Blank screen after boting up


There should be a display toggle key on your keyboard. This will toggle the display from the external display to the laptop lcd. Try pressing the Fn + F5 key to toggle the display.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.
