It sounds like your trying to use a full size monitor with your laptop. If that's the case you have to send the video to the cabled monitor by pressing the "fn" (function key) and then pressing the corresponding key that refers to a secondary video device (i.e. projector, monitor, etc.). Typically you press "fn" and f4 (should have monitor looking picture next to it), Some laptops are different, so look at your function (F1 - F12) keys to see which one is correct.

Hi Cat, You can try removing the data cable of your monitor, the one connecting to the back of the tower/computer. If there are no issues on the monitor, normally you will be getting the power self test which is indicated by three vertical colors on the screen (Red, BLue, Green). If you dont see the power self test, it may be a problem with the monitor. YOu may want to try using a different monitor to isolate issue if available

Hello,

connect the laptop to an external monitor, turn it on see if the monitor will display.

If the monitor displays, then it means your screen inverter or screen bulb is the cause of the laptop screen being blank.

Also if the monitor does not display anything, the maybe the graphic card is the cause of the problem.

This would involve you taking the laptop to a repairer

Take care.

Screen Goes Blank


Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.

Can you help me fix my acer zg5? the screen has gone blank and it will not boot.


If the system will not boot up and you are not receiving any output from the monitor then you have a problem with the power. First inspect the power adapter and ensure power is being supplied throug the adapter. The best way to check is there should be a little green light on the adapter. If that is not lit then change to another outlet in the wall. Try taking out the battery and running it on adapter power only. Then don't plug it in and try running it on battery power only. If none of these produce any power then there is nothing more that can be done. You must take it in to the PC repair shop. They will be able to determine if your motheboard is dead.

Don't forget to 4 star this solution.
