Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.

We can hear it running but the screen is completely blank when we try to turn it on. We know it has power because our mp3 player charges on it while it is turned on. We have a thinkpad t23

    Shine a flashlight on the screen, can you see a faint picture? If so, the FL Inverter is probably bad.

Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)

Try this, turn your laptop under a bright light, if you can see something as if the display were working just no lit up either the Inverter or the Lamp are gone.

You should get your laptop to a workshop.

Good Luck

Will not boot up. blank screen


Can you see any light on your computer? Or hear your computer running? Have you tried turning of the power and turning it back on? Also check if the cables on the back of your monitor are still firmly connected. as well on the computer side.
Listen for the computer if it makes any kind of sounds when you turn it on.

Please check the air vents (inlet and outlet) and clean them up using a canned air, and use an external monitor to test this laptop. If the problem is not solved, then your laptop's GPU/motherboard is dying.

Power light on but screen is blank


Can you hook the computer up to an external monitor? If you have a desktop monitor that you can hook it too it could help determine if the LCD panel has failed.

When you turn on the computer, if you can see the harddrive light flickering/blinking then the computer is going thru the motions to boot up and it is just a visual issue. Purhaps your video card has failed. I know that HP / Compaq has had problems in the past with the Nvidia GPU seperating from the motherboard when they get too hot and the screen will go blank.

Try to hook to a external monitor and let me know your prognosis.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop the screen is black


Shutting the computer down could be done by holding the Power Switch down for 10 seconds, rather than unplug/no battery "solution". A blank screen is more often than not caused by the failure of the screen's backlight. Plugging an external monitor in the ext monitor port would verify the computer still works, and I am sure it does.

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

Vostro 1000 black screen an i can hear it running, but can see..


A blank screen with evidence that the motherboard is working (the Capital "A" green light is probably the CAPS LOCK on your computer's keyboard) initially points to an output or video problem. One quick way to see if that is the case is if you connect the computer to an alternate screen. Do so with the "sick" computer powered off at first. After being sure the connections are snug, be sure that the test monitor is powered on and then turn on your "sick" Dell. If the test monitor runs as your laptop's monitor ran when it was healthy then you know there is a cabling/backlight/inverter/screen problem. Some of these can be solved very easily, some more expensively as replacement may be required.

On some laptops pressing down firmly on the keyboard may seat a screen cable to motherboard connection. That often works on IBM Thinkpads with screens that fade in and out due to a poorly seated screen cable connection to the motherboard.

So let's see how the test to a known working screen goes.

A few of the keys on my hp pavilion dv6000 came off today- I reattached them and now my computer screen is blank when I turn it on. The power light is on and you can hear it running but nothing on...


try pressing the function or fn keydown and hold it down then press the the f key that turns off and on the display.Do the key that came off feel the same as the other keys when you push them.it could be that the keyboard is damaged and some keys may not be working as in the monitor key.

Blank Screen


Hi,

If you can hear your windows loading but no display, try plug-in an external Monitory on your Laptop. If you can see the display on the screen with this monitor then maybe your LCD or Inverter is broken, or try turning on/off the switch for External Monitor and LCD Display on your keyboard. Usually by holding the "FN" key on your keyboard and look for the LCD/VGA icon on your keys then press it.
