Display goes blank after about a hour after it is on.

Any ideas.

Hi

Run a test on the system first and also update video and bios.

Drivers can be downloaded from www.support.dell.com

Running a test can be done by pressing FN+power button and turn on the system. Fn is the key found on the left lower side of the system
otherwise press F12 when you start and the system and see a dell logo, go to diagnostics and run a diags and let me know if you get any error messages


thank you

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 goes to blank screen at random intervals.


Hello you just have to upgrade the driver for the graphic card.

You can also use windows update

Visit lenovo here:

Or use the autodetect function

If it not helps with the driver your display has a defect
its not a easy task to change the display.
The local computer repair shop should be able to help you with that.

Good luck

My computer begins to load windows, then after the screen with the windows logo and bars goes away my screen goes black.


Nine times out of ten if that's when your display stops, it's simply because your display settings are set to something that your monitor can't handle. Depending on what it's not supporting, some monitors respond by going black ... others just go "crazy" displaying unintelligible gibberish.
If that's the problem, it's fairly easy to fix.
First things first ... let's get you a bootable system.
Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.
Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.
Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.
Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)
Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.
OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.
"Start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor."
If the display is still blank or gibberish, the my recommendation is to once again boot into Safe Mode, possibly Safe Mode with networking, and update your video display drivers. It's likely that they are incorrect or otherwise broken. Now start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor.
I tend to start with the screen resolution. Once again right click on the desktop and click Properties, then Settings, and then drag the Screen Resolution slider a notch or two to the right to increase your display resolution. Now click Apply. It should change the resolution and display a small message box asking if you want to accept this setting. If you don't respond within some time, it assumes you can't see it, so it resets to the previous setting. If the screen goes blank or you can't read it, wait at least one minute before doing anything. The problem may resolve itself, and you'll be able to say "well, that resolution doesn't work", and move on to try another.
If, after a full minute or more the screen remains blank or unreadable, you'll have to reboot into safe mode, as we did originally, to restore your setting. (Why might this happen? Windows "remembers" and doesn't bother to ask you if you reset to something that you previously said worked. If you mistakenly said "this works" when it didn't ... perhaps by random keyboarding while the display was blank ... well, that could be how we got here in the first place.) You can repeat this process of trial and error for each of the screen resolution, the color depth and the screen refresh rate. (For CRT displays, you really do want the refresh rate to be as high as your monitor supports.)

Sorry to hear that you are having problems with the computer display.

Per your description, I believe the display controller was damaged by the power surge. The laptop may need replacement of the display OR use it with an external display.

Sounds like your screen has developed a problem. You wouldn't necessarily see any damage when you opened the bezel up. I would suggest you take it to a repair shop and have them test it and replace the screen if necessary

Hi. i am using Dell inspiron 6400. i have been using it for more than a year now. since yesterday i am experiencing a new kind of problem. my display was working fine untill yesterday. i have windows XP as...


Sounds like you have a failing backlight. The flourescent tube at the bottom of the LCD that make the screen bright enough to see will change to a reddish tinge as it goes bad. Eventually the tube will not generate light at all and the screen will go black, but you can still see the image faintly if you use a flashlight at an angle to the LCD surface. You might also hear a faint buzzing sound, just like when an overhead flourescent goes bad.

Replacing the backlight is a tedious and difficult job. First the LCD panel has to be removed, and then it must be disassembled to get to the backlight. The tubes can be purchased on eBay but they are leaded glass and very thin, so they tend to break easily. There are two contact tips must be desoldered and then the two new ones soldered before the LCD panel can be reassembled and then put back into the upper half of laptop.

For a beginner, it is much easier to replace the entire panel with a new or known good used one. Best bet is to check your warranty first, otherwise a full LCD panel will cost at least $75 plus the labor to install.

As for the TV out, the preferred method is to hook an external by VGA cable to test the video card. You should get full picture with proper colors since the problem is in the laptop's display itself. The TV out jack requires drivers and a functioning XP to display.
