Lg 200 blank monitor, functional front monitor

I have an LG 200 laptop. several weeks ago it began displaying a blue screen saying an error was detected and the computer was shutting down, then that there was a crash dump. After this, the computer would always restart itself and work fine. This happened only if I shut the computer down after use. If i left it hibernating it never had problems turning back on. Last night, after a crash dump, the computer restarted. The small window on the top of the computer worked, the fan came on, most of the lights came on, however the monitor remained black. My dvd light still fickers and I can hear the computer working when i push ctrl alt del to start task manager, but the screen remains black. ive tried the dimmer and everything else, i don't know what could possible be wrong.

In case you were wondering, I let it go on for so long because I'm living in Spain and my warranty is in Nova Scotia and I don't know where compliant repair stores are. Id just like to get a ballpark of what I should tell the maintenance people where I go, or get an idea as to what is most likely wrong.

Thank you!
Sarah

    How is the LG 200 and the Blue Screen of Death have any link to and/or be labeled as a Mac Laptop. Or be in the same catagory as a Mac?? Please don't put a Mac anywhere close to the cheap and unstable Personal Computers or IBM Compatables.

    I am guessing what you are seeing is what is called the Blue screen of death. That is occurring because something is causing an error with your machine and it is protecting itself by dumping. the cause could be either a software or hardware issue. what was the last thing you did different before this started as in install new program or change RAM or other Hardware. You could also try starting up in Safe Mode and then letting it run for a bit and shutdown and see if that helps

SOURCE: Blank Screen

Common problem in monitors are bad caps in the power supply, that is the first place to check, look for bad caps with bulging top/bottom, see example of failed VIEWSONIC monitors due to bad caps here (worst case will be bad lamps): http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see so we can help you further.

Monitor automatically clicks into power saving mode


Laptops often have a function key which switches from laptop only, external monitor only, laptop & external. One of the top number keys, along with the function (fn for short) must be pressed simultaneously to step through these.

Where these keys are at, may differ from laptop to laptop.

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean by VGI. I will assume you mean VGA (Analogue - D Shaped with 15 pinholes).

When pixels or line of lixels fail on a monitor, they usually fail in spots or in a vertical lines due to the design of the matrix.

Since both monitors are sharing a single cable and the graphics card is a new one, the fault automatically isolates itself to either the monitor or its VGA connector.

Check that none of the pins in the end that connects to the faulty monitor are bent and/or touching one another and shorting.

Then try changing the resolution of the graphics card itself and test the monitor's performance at various settings to see if the resolution seeting is straining against the limits of the monitors range.

Right click on open space in the desktop > properties > settings > click and hold the slider scale step by step, up and down the scaled to test the monitor > apply > ok > test for a reasonable period > reset.

Also test the monitor with a single VGA cable to another computer (even a laptop, using the Fn key + external monitor function key).

Thses tests should tell you if the monitor is failing.

I hope this helps.

I need to know what operating system you're using (like windows vista). However, it seems like the control has moved to the LG screen, and not laptop. You can set several options when connecting a monitor to a laptop - both screens are available, one screen is off and the other screen is off.

Please post your operating system so that I guide you how to change these settings.

Monitor automatically clicks into power saving mode


I have an LG W2261V, and an old Sharp LL-T19D1-H. The PC runs both just fine, and the PSU has plenty of power. Unfortunately the LG handles power save mode very differently, where the LG would not switch on after entering this mode unless reset (unplugged, PC rebooted, etc). Extremely frustrating, as the old Sharp never had any problems exiting its own power save mode. The LG would enter this mode based on the monitor power settings (in whatever power scheme you are using) in the screensaver tab in display properties. I fixed this by selecting "Never" for "the Turn off monitor" property. I guess this is a warning to those who may wish to buy a new LG monitor, but want to use a power scheme to turn off the monitor.
