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.

How do you know your mouse and keyboard work if you have a blank screen?

What motherboard did you put in it? Did you install a video card or using a built in video card? How many beeps? Do you have a spare video card to put in the system and try that?

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.

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.
