Power on but screen not

Hello! when i turn on my computer, the power light is on but the screen stays black. i was hoping there could be a way to fix it myself without having to pay a lot of money. also could it be virus related?

    I had the same problem but I fixed it by accessing safe mode and then system restore: Power the laptop and at the same time hold down the F8 key. You will hear a "bip" as it goes to "safe mode". It will then ask you whether you will like to chose a retore point. Chose a recent restore date of your choice. That's it.

    Couple of Questions:

    1. What was the last thing you did BEFORE you notice this problem?



    2. When the notebook comes on, are you able to get to the BIOS screen?



    Thanks

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up


Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.

Black Screen / Computer Stays in Standby Mode


Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.
