Okay, does that laptop post to bios first? Example: You see the logo of the company before it goes to a black screen.
Also, do you see a blinking underscore in the top left hand corner?

Screen goes black after plugging in charger.

I had problems with my laptop also. My screen would go black, backlight, I could see my screen if I shined a flashlight on the screen. If I opened the screen quickly I could get it to turn back on.
I replaced the inverter board, as mine was a cfl back light for a lcd. Inverter was weak. That helped but I still had some problems with screen not turning on. I found that I had a magnetic lid close switch. I took a magnet and ran it around the edge of the laptop until I located the switch, would turn off the screen. I rubbed circles with the magnet above the switch, med powered magnet from a magnetic screw holder bowl. So far my laptop shut off problem seems to be fixed. Working very well.
Before I ran the magnet over the switch my computer would also shut off when I pulled out the AC plug. Stopped after magnet. I think something gets magnetized and causes problems and magnet corrects problem. You might try this, couldn't hurt.

My cq 81 pc startsup but black screen. totally blank

the caps lock key is flashing a diagnostic code. If it just flashed once then a pause and repeats this continuously then you have an early chipset initialization failure and the motherboard need to be repaired or replaced. If it's flashing some other code a quick google search for "hp diagnostic LED codes" will find the correct cause for the code.

Hi I have a problem of black screen with my hp pavilion dv400. Wheen I start my computer I can windows logo on the screen but just 1 or 2 second and the screen go black. But when I connect my computer...

Your laptop is probably outputting the video signal to the wrong monitor. When the screen goes black, try pressing the function key to switch the video back to the laptop screen. Refer to your laptop's manual on what key to press. Usually it is the Fn key and F4 at the same time for HP laptops.

When laptop swiched on,the note book will on but its screen will showing blackned'pl advice me.

this might be a lcd panel problem or video/mobo problem. first try this. kust leave laptop off. make sure ac adapter is plugged in. now press and hold on the Fn key while the laptop is off then press power button. When the laptops startsup then still nothing on the screen just wait for 3 mins then try to check if you will be hearing beeps. if you heard multiple beeps and still nothing on the screen have you lcd panel, lcd cable and inverter replaced.

but if there are no beeps. check the lock leds (num, caps, scroll) check the status which one is lit on. this will help us identify if it is hardware or which hardware.

Powers up but black screen

For that you need to refix RAM memory.
It is in back side of laptop.
check in back side you find 1 plate upon battery open it then refix RAM memory.
if still same issue then you have to reset bios settings for that open back cover of laptop then find motherbord pull CMOS cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings goes to factory defaults.
Then check.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

It certainly sounds like its a short in the switch or a problem in the loom that is shorting out the dash and radio ancillarys circuit.

Its not good news but for sure the right place to start is the switch I am affriad. could you get a separate switch unit to swap out and test ?
