The first thing you should try is to connect it to an external monitor if you can, (you will probably have to press one of the F keys to change to external) if that works then you have a problem with the laptop screen. If it doesn't work then you will have to look at different options.

    I already tried that....I also checked the memory status and still it did not work....The computer is having the same problem even when connected to other monitors

  • Gerald Manuel Jan 15, 2013

    in that case it sounds like you have a motherboard problem, probably a faulty video chip.

  • mary wambui karanja Jan 15, 2013

    Yes I thought the same....thanks so much I will try and get someone to replace the chip...

In Safe mode drivers, in your case the video one, aren't loaded. Uninstall the one that you have now. If it's the same then probably it's a hardware problem. To be sure boot from a Linux Live-CD like http://www.pclinuxos.com/  and press the Escape key - this way you will see the boot-log in real time, look for error messages.

I turn on my laptop it display green light that its booting but not displaying anything, later on the green light stop but the fan is still working, the system still on. please help me out with it.


I think that the first thing you should check is the display itself. Connect the laptop to an external monitor to see if you get video output.
Also, be sure you haven't accidentally turned the video off using the Fn plus special function key combo that switches displays between the laptop and external.

Hp 6735s was used last night and shut down properly but this morning turning it on the system continue booting without displaying anything on the screen which makes it blank / black........ Please I need...


If there is a display switch in the functions on the keyboard (most likely will look like a laptop monitor or a computer monitor on the keyboard). Press the function key and the button associated with that and wait 3 to 4 seconds (you may have to press it multiple times) If you have anything in the vga slot, then it may think a monitor is plugged in and won't display the laptop screen.
If none of the above work, then maybe your computer is having a systematic failure, or the screen connector is loose.

- try to connect you machine to an external monitor
- if the display appears on your external monitor the problem would be the LCD screen of your laptop (need to replace it)
- if there is no display on both laptop and external monitor i suspected it's the motherboard faulty
- send your laptop to service center to replace it (if it is underr warranty it's free

Monitor Display on TV


Try the following:
Power up the projector first. With the laptop hooked up but not powered on once projector is warming up begin booting laptop. If there is still no display once its projector is fully warmed up and laptop booted you can try using the (fn) key with the laptop monitor switching function key usually F4 which switches the display monitor to show on external, external and laptop or just laptop. If this all fails try changing resolution of laptop to something that might be more projector friendly.
Let me know how you go.

Cannot display anything at all,sounds it is working but, cannot dispaly boot screen and rest???


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Latitude D820. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor has no display, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
