If the alternate monitor works fine .its definate that the monitor which is flickering has the problem with the main board or est card.getting it repaired by a proper technician after checking all the other components too is advisable.i dont feel its a do it yourself type of job if you dont have enough monitor repairing tools and knowledge.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, either a monitor problem or computer (video/memory) problem. Pls post back whether it is a laptop or a desktop, brand and model. Initially, a couple of things you can try:

  • check the cables;
  • cycle power on/of;
  • try attaching another monitor to the computer. if it is a laptop, the external VGA connector;
  • any beeping sound;
  • does the computer go through the boot up process, correct sounds, correct lights except no video display;
  • if it is an LCD display, try shining a flashlight at an angle on the display and see if the desktop could be seen albeit very very dark;
  • if it is a CRT monitor, check if your arm would get goose flesh when moved close to the screen.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Try another monitor with the computer and try your monitor with another computer.

if another monitor doesn't work with your pc then the issue is in the computer, or its video card. what brand and model pc you got there?

if another monitor works in your pc then the issue is on your monitor.

A component has failed... likely the power section effecting the lamps... disassembly and repair would be required... or replace the monitor

My computer comes on just fine, but then while loading the screen goes black. You can hear the computer still working. Sometimes the screen will pop back on but it will be faint and flicker then goes...


Regarding the blank screen, your monitor is most likely faulty - I'm assuming an LCD screen, in which case the backlight is failing, possibly the tubes or the the inverters.

Regarding the fans, you may have pulled the fan leads out of their connectors on the motherboard. Check to see if the CPU fan spins while the computer is switched on.

Screen is blank


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :- To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions. Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case. The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills. Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.

Failing to power up.


Had the same problem: the battery is simply exhausted. Suggest you buy a new battery. A possible solution you might try is to connect it to a charger and make a hard reset (loosing all data and programs stored). Good luck
