    I have been told that it is most probably a bad motherboard if you cannot see a picture even with an external monitor hookup. Try hooking up an external monitor, if you can see anything on it, it may be something simple like you switched off the monitor with on of the function buttons, or something more complex like a bad cathode ray.

    Was using my laptop when all of a sudden the screen got really dark and was barely able to see anything. Now I cannot see anything at all unless I hook it up to my TV. What needs to be done to fix this?

    Since 2 days my screen goes black without notice. Once I hook up to an external monitor and use the screen switch function and adjust the settings (back to 1280x768) I was able to switch back to the notebook screen, but this morning it turned black after I disconnected the external monitor.

    Anybody any idea/advise. Thanks a lot.

My Asus laptop's screen is blank and stays blank.

You might try a hard boot, hold power button 5 sec. then as it reboots use one of the function keys to get into the bios. Usually F2 or F8 or F12. Start in safe mode then check you resolution setting and make sure you video card drivers are up to date. Good luck.

Change the internal Ram sticks. This can cause a "Hold" in the BIOS boot process, thereby stopping the machine from going to the Operating System. Hope this helps.

My laptop comes on but the screen stays blank??

Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. It worked for me! Just shutdown, put the battery back in you're good to go. Worked for me so definitely worth a try.
Good luck
