    Please clarify for us: is this indeed a Toshiba Satellite notebook as this is headed under? Does the screen on the notebook not even show the "splash" when turned on? Does the notebook appear normal when connected to an external monitor?

Laptop is connected to the external LCD monitor, the monitor is on but screen is blank


There are at least 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor AND external monitor source
3) External monitor source ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F5 key.
Hot key through until you find the setting you want.
Release the Fn key

Do you need the external monitor to switch it back to internal monitor or both on?

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.

Hi, my hp compaq nc6220 switches on but the screen wont light up


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if monitor works, it means that the laptop screen has a bad inverter board or back light issue. If the monitor has a blank screen like the laptop, the video graphics card is bad, or you have motherboard problems, suggest a computer tech.

My laptop have a power but the monitor is blank


If you start the pc is the bios boot-up showing, if so then Restart pc and press F8 to log in as Administrator, once logged in as admin you can fix any problems there, but suggest if logged in as admin do a Defragment, that helped me with a lot of pc with the same problem

Suddenly died. PSU ok - will not boot up


Most likely, since there is no power or boot indication at all, it may be a motherboard failure.

Dropped and screen went black.still turns on but the screen doesn't work


Attach and external monitor and boot the machine. If you don't have one, ask around your friends and family... someone has a monitor.

If you can see stuff on the monitor when it boots, but when you boot with no monotor the laptop screen is blank, then you most likely have a dead lcd panel on the notebook. It would need to be replaced.

If the external monitor also shows nothing during boot then you likely have larger problems.
