If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

    Y compaq pressario v2000 goes from black screen to intermittent normal screen. The black screen is on the computer 80% of the time and then the pics fade in and out

    The screen on your laptop goes black after every few seconds.

    It resumes after a mouse-click or after a key-press.


    Click on Start --> In search bar, type power options and press Enter.

    "Select a power plan" window will be opened.

    Click on "Change plan settings" next to "Balanced (recommended)".

    In "Turn off the display", select "Never" from the drop-down menu under both the options "On battery" and "Plugged in".

    Now click on "Save changes" button.

    hope this helps

    Screen all black.

    Aside from the screen being all black, I am assuming that the notebook seems to be operating normally. So I suspect the screen's back light may have been turned off by Power Management. Usually pressing any key should turn the back light on but if this doesn't happen, try pressing the Fn key at the lower right of the keyboard and while holding it down press the F6 key at the top center of the keyboard. If this works, you should check the notebook's Power Management profile to see if it is the way you would want it to be. For example, normally if the notebook is on AC power, the screen should never turn off.

    My IBM T40 boots to a black screen with the "z"(light at top to right of power.

    Try these steps:

    1. Remove battery and unplug AC adapter
    2. Press power on button for 30 seconds or so (one min is also too)
    3. Attach battery and plug into wall
    4. Power "ON" as normal

    If you are still getting the "Z" and a black screen then I would have the video card or hard drive looked at and replaced. Start with the video card and then look at the hard drive

    Power Light on but screen black

    Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

IF YES then u can set the Sleep mode to off cuz the sleep mode gets inititated after 20 minutes when u keep ur fone idle means u dont operate ur fone for atleast 20 minutes. BUT IN THIS CASE ULL LOSE ALL UR DATA INCLUDING CONTACTS AND MESSAGES ETC.IF U HAVENT TAKEN THE BACK UP its totally upto u that u want to proceed with this step or u can again show ur fone to the nokia care guys. but they'll charge u cuz obviously after 2 years ur fone is out of warranty

    Camera on a W375

    I had the exact same camera blacked-out malfunction. I followed booj's advice and it cured the problem. What I did: I turned off the w375 phone by pressing and holding the red button (not just closing the clam shell, like I normally do), after the phone powered down, I restarted it by pressing and holding the green button. After it powered up, the camera at first had the same black screen, then, all of a sudden, the view finder started working normally and it now takes pictures correctly. - MGB
