I can't get my laptop screen to come on


A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,
if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on. To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.
Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard. Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue. Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue. Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.
Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment. Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard. Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.
Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector. Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place. Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective. If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken. If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced. Hope this helps

There is no webcam on that model. I removed the plastic strip at the top of the screen only to find a hole. You must purchase a webcam separately.

Noise on web cam


Normal 0 Twothings can cause static.
First,If you have your speakers turned up to high it will give you feedback causingdistortion and static. I recommend using a headset when videoing.
Secondreason is, if you are using a laptop and have added an external microphonebetween the two it will cause distortion and static.
Notknowing the configuration of your computer makes it harder to analyze theproblem.
Sohope this is of some help. Bud

I get a humming sound when I record a video


There a quite a few reasons why this could happen.

  1. The sound device could be malfunctioning.
  2. The cables are not plugged in all the way.
  3. The camera may be close to a noise maker such as a fan, air conditioner, or your PC fan.
  4. The sound wires could be crossed with an electrical wire which sometimes creates static or a hum.
  5. If you are using a normal Microphone, there could be static on the port or connector.
  6. The record volume levels are too high, or mic boost has been enabled and is picking up extra sound.
I hope one of these examples helps to fix your problem, if it doesn't, please get back with me and we can try something else. Good luck!
