Re: Blank screen

Check first if the CPU is working by connecting an external monitor. Do not forget to activate the external monitor connection (function keys). If the computer works llike this, then the monitor is probably defective. If it did not work, dont waste effort in checking the LCD.

My Lenovo T61 is not troubleshooting. It was infected by an virus, How can I restart the computer? Please help


ThinkPad computers have what we call the service partition, which can set the computer back to its factory stated even without the recovery disc. The service partition can be accessed by pressing the Access ThinkPad or Access IBM button during start up.

Prior to performing a software recovery, Lenovo recommends returning your system to it's original factory configuration by removing all hardware that has been added to your system.
When the system first starts, the following message will be displayed on a blank screen:

To start the Product Recovery program, press F11

This message will stay on the screen for approximately 2 seconds, and it will be there every time the machine is started from a powered off state. If the F11 key is pressed while the message is displayed, then the system will enter the Service partition.

Select Full Recovery to get rid of the viruses. Wait for it to complete and your computer will be back to when it was fresh as new.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! a 4 thumbs up if this helped will be greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1526, and have had recent problems with getting the screen to come on. Now, it won't come on at all. When I power up the laptop, the power light comes on, but the screen is blank and...

Sounds like the motherboard, BUT have you dismantled the computer. Remove the RAM the drives, The HDD, the BIOS battery, the power cord, the computer battery and everything that can be removed relatively easily. Clean everything out with compressed air. Not to crazy though...take it easy!

If a friend has a similar computer try the screen on his once its removed.

Once clean reassemble.

Dells shortcuts are a little different than others. You may need to press F2 and run diagnostics from the boot menu or F8, or F12 which brings you to the BIOS. All at startup. Not 100% sure on ur Dell but it is on mine.

From this point I'm not sure...Hopefully this will help get you in the right direction. Best of luck!

A friend of mine gave me his laptop to see what was wrong with it... It powers up but the screen stays blank and the cd/dvd drive light comes on and stays on. The drive wont open. And the fan wont turn on....

Hi, sounds like his friend has put the wrong memory chip in this machine. I would put the old memory chip back in, and then check with the Toshiba website for the correct upgrade.
Come back to me if you need more help

Compaq Armada M700, Dim Screen

There is a dimmer function that is part of the keyboard on most notebooks. You use the Fn key and some other key (Mine is F1 and F1) Look for what looks like Sun in blue print on the key. You should find 2 of them. One will be the brightness up and the other brightness down. You can try those.

More likely, something has come loose internally.
1. It could be the backlight for the screen is broken or a connection loose. You should be able to see the light when you look at the side of the display.
2. The AC power connector may have been broken and the notebook is only on battery power. By default most systems are dimmer when on battery power. Check to see if your charge indicator light is on. If not, that may be the problem.

I hope this helps.
