Yes. The computer will indicate hard drive missing or load some other information even if the hard drive is missing.

Hp pavilion dv200 it powers on but no displaying


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to drain the electrostatic charge of the motherboard that usually cause this issue. I wrote a tip on how to do the power drain. Try to plug in external monitor on the VGA port and see if you are getting display using external monitor. If you are getting display using external monitor then the problem would be the laptop LCD. If you are getting the same black screen using external monitor then the problem is already the motherboard.

Thank you for using Fixya!

When i turn on the laptop it shows blank screen only.how can i fix it. thanks


Do you see anything at all such as the boot up logo? can you hear the HDD spining? if you can hear the HDD spining but you see nouthing try the following.
connect an external monitor. Look along the function keys and find one with a screen logo on it press fn and the appropriate F key and it will switch to the external monitor. The switching of screens is normally 3 cycles 1. external monitor on 2. both laptop screen and external monitor on 3. back to laptop screen.
If the external monitor comes on it's the screen inverter or screen at fault.
Once you have confirmed what the problem is we can move on to checking the screen wiring or a screen or inverter change.

Hello, I have an Acer Aspire 1356LMi laptop. It


This problem is mostly likely with your LCD screen. It needs to be replaced. I suggest you connect your laptop to an external computer monitor and see if you still see the same issue on the external monitor. If you don't see it, then for sure it is not your motherboard or graphic chip. It has to do with your screen. In rare cases this can also happen if your wiring for the LCD screen is going bad or damaged.

Once you connect the external computer monitor to your laptop, turn your laptop on and located the "FN" and "F4 or F5 key depending on the laptop model" key on your laptop. Hold FN down and hit the F4 key once and see if the screen switches to your external monitor. If not, hit it again and wait.

Some newer laptops auto detect external monitors when they are connected to one.
