I have a Dell Vostro V13 when power is plugged in, the light that says its charging comes up, but when i try and turn it on nothing happens, not sure what to do?

If you can, try connecting an external display to determine whether the system is booting up but you only have a display problem.
If you do have a display problem, shut down and reboot up. When the system starts to boot up, press F8 a few times to get into Advanced Boot Options, then select the Last Known Good Configuration. Then continue booting up.
If this still doesn't fix the display problem, it could be a hardware issue. Your recourse is a warranty fix if possible, and an expensive panel replacement if not.

If it is not a display problem ie nothing shows up in the external display, you could have a bad on-board power unit. Same question - warranty or repair.

Is it failing to show anything on the screen? Failing to boot?

Some basic troubleshooting steps:

1. If nothing comes up on the screen, first try removing your battery for a few minutes without the charger plugged in. Attempt to turn it on (it won't, but it'll discharge the capacitors). Then replace the battery and charger and try to boot.

2. Use the windows install disc to repair the operating system, simply insert it, boot from it (use F8 to select it if you need to) and hit repair when the window comes up.
3. Also, sometimes connecting to an external display (use the VGA port) can help troubleshoot whether it is a display, or a boot issue.

The display of my laptop is not working when i switch it on the backlight glows but nothing appears on the screen it doesn't even boot.

It would be helpful if we knew the Make, Model of Laptop and the OS you are using? Try a hard restart , remove ALL media, DVD, CD, USB, etc., unplug , remove battery, leave battery out, plug in , reboot. Describe what happens, Fan spins? LED's blink? HDD spins up? Sound? Anything on screen? Have you tried a System Restore/Recovery? You can start by removing the HDD and testing it, if you done have a USB to sata/ide adapter take it to a Qualified Computer Tech.

My Sony Vaio PCG-FR285M just shows a black screen at bootime

If your BIOS loads properly you have some display in your screen like text. But when you turn on and nothing readable on the display then you have problem in the BIOS. Try to flush updated bios in sony website. Recovery disk is only applicable if the system will display "Cannot find boot disk" or bios is properly loaded before you can boot from CD. If you wish you can boot it with Norton Ghost 12 Recovery Disk.

Laptop won't boot (display problems)

If the diagnostics displays on the LCD screen but you get no display when Windows starts to load, it sounds like you have a video software driver problem. Try tapping the F8 key when you power on your laptop and boot in Safe mode. If it works in safe mode then you need to check you driver. You can also try connecting the laptop to an eternal monitor and see what happens.

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.
