    Have you tried hooking it up to an external monitor?

    Has it been dropped it recently? What were you doing when it went blank?

I'm assuming your screen shows nothing at all, even the bios or boot screen as it turns on.

If you can hook it up to an external monitor then your video adapter is working. Try using the vga output on the laptop. If it doesn't show anything use you display select feature. I'm not sure what button it is on your laptop but on mine it is Fn+F8 (look for a button that shows a laptop and/or a rectangle).

If you can see it with an external monitor, you should try to uninstall and reinstall the video adapter. After you reboot the computer hopefully it will work.

However, if it still does not work, you will probably need to reseat the monitor cable. Do this by opening the screen panel. on the back is a flat cable tat plugs in to the LCD. This is usually covered by tape. Carefully remove the tape, unplug the cable and plug the cable back in. Don't forget to replace the tape!
I have fixed two computers in the last two weeks by reseating this cable.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Don't know what to tell you, I looked this up today because I was having this issue... I let it rest for about 8 hours and then it worked just fine.. in my case I hadn't dropped it. Noone was home for the last week to do such a thing, but I could hear the windows chime so the comp was definitely booting. Sorta just resolved itself.

My notebook Asus W7J BLANK when is turn on


Screen not working
are you able to hear the windows log in?
if you do but no image, most likelly your video card is ruined. overheated or dropped maybe? don't worry is bad but not that bad, there is a way to fix that by a professional.
take it to a computer repair shop and have them check the video card ask if they have a rework station or someone who may. they have to unsolder about 50 pins at the same time get a new card and solder it again.
sometimes they apply heat to it and it will work again but for just a few days maybe weeks but it goes bad again. so replacement is the best option.
I used to charge about 200 bucks but you may be able to ask for a rebate.
do not take it to a major computer store they would tell you there is no repair so you can go in and get a new computer

I have an ASUS Eee PC 900. It was working fine last night. I closed the screen (did not turn off the notebook) and when I woke up this morning and opened had a blank screen. All LED lights are working. ...


One more thing you could try is taking the battery out for a minute or two, because the Eee uses the atom it has a fairly complex onboard power controller that can overclock / underclock the cpu. Sometimes this gets malfunctions and locks the PC up, the quickest way to fix it is to simply pull the battery for a short while and stick it back in. You may well have already tried this, but it'll be the first port of call.

Boot problem on inspiron 1150


Try connecting it to an external monitor.
When you do, as soon as you press the power button to turn on the laptop, close the laptop lid - as this forces the laptop to display on an external monitor.
If this works, then it means the laptop screen is bad.
If it doesn't, the most likely cause would be that the laptop video card went bad.
For a while, some older Dell laptops with high-end nVidia graphics cards tended to die suddenly.

Blank screens/no sound on ds lite


This definatley sounds faulty. Try turning it on again without any games inside. If it turns on okay without a game then it may just be that game you had inserted into it, if this is the case then try a different game to determine whether it is the game or not. If the screen still remains blank then take the DS back to the store where you purchased it and they should replace it free for another one.
