My laptop screen goes blank from time to time and these are the reasons it happens. If you boot the computer with the screen open while on battery sometimes the screen doesn't connect properly, but closing and re-opening the screen fixes this. Also, if your computer has a video out connection such as HDMI or S-Video look at the F5 key and see if it looks like it might mention switching screens at all. If it looks like it does, hold the fuction (FN) key and press F5, give it 10 or so seconds, if that doesn't work, try it again a few times, waiting each time. If none of this gets your screen back, it is a hardware issue not a settings or user issue.

    It has been brought to my attention that some laptops also use F4 to switch video output. If I had a laptop model I could probably tell you exactly which F key to press with the FN key to change outputs.

Test the laptop on an external monitor.

If you have picture it is usually a faulty inverter board on laptop.

Inverter is about $30/$50

If the laptop has no picture on external monitor, then usually the video chipset located on main board is faulty.

My laptop screen got wet now it has a dul screen and a dark area


I always start with seeing if when connecting an external monitor to the Laptops VGA output is the same or different to what you see when just via the Laptops screen. Reason is so that can narrow down to JUST Laptop screen or graphics chip, maybe even OR connection at cable either end, Motherboad or Screen.
Is the Laptop turning on alright i.e. no frying, I assume it has dried out from when it got wet. localised to screen only or possibly inside of Laptop....Lights up with power, fan spins hard drive spins, right? If so try an external monitor.

When I power on my computer my monitor screen goes a solid whitish gray. worked fine yesterday, and then today nothing.


Laptop LCD screen turned completely white
What can you do if the laptop LCD screen turned completely white? From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following:
1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).

When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning.
Most likely you still can use the laptop with an external monitor. Just connect the monitor to the VGA port on the back or side of your laptop and then switch the video output from internal to external mode.
On Toshiba laptops you can toggle between internal and external screens using Fn+F5 keys. Hold down Fn and press on F5 until you get video on the external monitor.
On IBM laptops use Fn+F7.
On HP laptops use Fn+F4.
It’s possible that you have to use a different key combination on your laptop but you get the idea.
On some laptops, in order to be able to use the external monitor, you have to connect it to the laptop and then restart the laptop so the external monitor is detected by the laptop.
I noticed that in some cases the laptop screen may turn white because of poor connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. If you want to check this connection, you’ll have to take apart the display panel because the connector is located on the back side of the LCD screen.
I always check the video cable connection first. Reconnecting the video cable may fix your problem.
If reconnecting the video cable doesn’t help, most likely you have a problem either with the LCD screen or with the motherboard.
The best way to find out which one is causing the problem is testing the laptop with another working LCD screen. Without this test you’ll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.
You’ll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen and the inverter board. After that you connect another working screen and test video.
The original screen is white but my test screen works normal and I can see the image. After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen.
After I assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it’s still white.
CONCLUSION.
In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced.

Hi, I cannot get my syncmaster to show the whole screen of my laptop


What is the current screen-resolution of your laptop, e.g., 1280-by-1024?
What is the maximum resolution of your LCD screen?
If it is "less" than the laptop's resolution,
part of the picture will be "off-screen".
Reduce the screen-resolution of your laptop to match the maximum resolution of the LCD.

We have the monitor hooked to a docking station for a laptop. I can not view the screen on the Viewsonic, but does display on laptop. I have been able to do an extende monitor view, but not the main view....


when you connect external monitor to a laptop u get two options in the monitor section of graphic properties tab

1.) extended
2.) clone

it is clear from ur post that u are using extended view

try using clone mode then both laptop screen and external monitor will show the main screen


other method is to disable the laptop screen and just allow external monitor to work, in this case laptop screen shows nothing but external monitor shows main screen

Can i replace my Gateway laptop tft screen with a new lcd screen?


The screen resolution is a combo of:
  1. the screen's capability
  2. the video card's capability
  3. the driver's settings
If the above screen is made for this laptop (as it appears to be), then the settings you had should still be there.

Repair computer screen


Anger managemnt classes might help, though owning a computer it will never stick for long hehe

Seriously though, when an LCD is damaged due to impacts etc, then there is only one repair method, replace the LCD. If the screen is still in a working condition, then thank your lucky stars.
If it is still running apart from the white dot, the best thing to do is to learn to live with it if possible, depending on the size of the dot of course. Laptop screens can cost nearly as much as the laptop to have replaced. You may get lucky and be able to find a laptop on eBay to salvage a screen from.

Sorry for the bad news.
