Screen Black can barely see images when boot up

While playing Bejeweled, screen completely disappeared and on reboot  can barely see images.  Not sure what to do from here.  Cannot see anything!  Screen black!

    My display screen on my hp dv1000 laptop went black. I see a very light image in the background, but can't read it. When I connect an external monitor, it works o.k.

Well seems like the lcd has lost or the video card has an issue easy way to find out is to hook it up to a monitor and if the pitcure comes out fine then its your lcd screen and if it appears the same then its your video card.

Screen driver problem notebook


Might be a hardware problem as well. To make sure it is not, boot to "VGA mode" (see below), keeping the external monitor disconnected, and see if the problem is still there on the laptop screen. If the problem disappears, then it's more than likely that a driver update will solve your issue. If this is the case, uninstall the driver for your graphic card, download the latest one from the manufacturer's website and install it. If not, then you need a more in-depth look, maybe you have a faulty LCD display.

To boot to VGA mode, press "F8" repeatedly while rebooting your computer and select the appropriate choice from the black and white bootloader screen that will appear.

Black screen


The game has probably screwed up the configuration. They do sometimes.
Press the power button and just before the machine tries to boot press the F8 key. That should allow you to restore or repair your machine.If there is absolutely no display, get it repaired under warranty.

NF110 Netbook shows black screen and at top says 'operating system not found' Can you help?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. . Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Blotted screen in my hp laptop


1.Locate the problem pixel. Display a true black image on your HP's monitor. You can do this by playing a DVD on your HP laptop, and pausing it on the black screen just before the movie starts. Once you bring up a black image on screen, the stuck or dead pixel should be visible.
2.Try applying direct pressure to the problematic pixel. After you've located it, turn off your laptop. Place a soft cloth or rag over the pixel to avoid damaging your screen. A soft chamois works well. Using the tip of a pen, apply gentle pressure to the pixel. You don't need to press hard, as too much pressure can crack or scratch your screen. While applying pressure, boot up your laptop. This should force the pixel to begin working properly.
3.Tap the pixel. With your Toshiba booted up and an image on the screen, gently tap the pixel with the rounded end of a pen cap. Tap hard just hard enough to see a small white flash on the screen. Tap your HP's screen until the pixel begins working properly.
4.Download a stuck pixel program. Several programs, including JScreenFix, UDPix and Pixel Protector, are available for download and can help fix a malfunctioning pixel. These programs display rapidly changing colors and images on your screen. The flashing colors and images can force the pixel to begin functioning properly.
5.Contact HP. If none of the above methods work, your screen may have a pixel that is truly dead. If that's the case, the only option is to replace the display completely. Contact HP customer support at www.hp.com to find an authorized repair service near you.

The graphic software failed. no display


When you turn the computer on, do you see the HP logo?

If you don't, keep the computer on and try holding the computer screen under an overhead light at an angle. If you see a faint image of anything on your monitor, then the lights in your screen went bad. A new screen can range $100-$200 on eBay, and can be changed out easily with a small Phillips screw driver.

If you can see the HP logo, it's a driver problem. If this is the case, start the computer in Safe Mode by performing the following steps.

1. Make sure the computer is turned off.
2. Wait for the HP logo disappears and start pressing "F8" repeatedly.
3. A menu will appear. Select "Safe Mode" and let it boot up to the desktop.
4. Once at the desktop, hold down the "Windows Logo" key on the keyboard and press "r". A dialog will pop up.
5. Type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotation marks and click ok.
6. Click the "+" next to "Display adapters".
7. Right-click each entry under "Display adapters" and select "Uninstall" Click OK on the box to confirm. Don't worry, Windows will reinstall it after a reboot.
8. Once all entries are removed from "Display adapters", the category will disappear from Device Manager. Reboot the computer and start it normally.
9. Your screen will probably still be big and blurry. Log into Windows and adjust your resolution to fit your screen. If you select the wrong resolution, and your screen goes black or does not fit, DO NOT PRESS ANYTHING or you will be going back to step 1. The computer will revert back to the old setting after 15 seconds.
10. Once you figure out the right resolution setting, reboot one more time to make sure that the settings took effect, and you can use your computer once again. :)

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers


Ok, from the beginning. Can you do a cold boot and get into the bios? (is there an image on the screen then)
Secondly, can you connect to an external monitor and see an image?
Did it do this only when it was heading in to hibernation? If so, it sounds like the power management needs some adjustment.
If there's no image on the external monitor, you may have a video/motherboard problem, or it still could be the operating system/power management.
It all depends on if you have video in bios.
Let me know.
Good luck

Screen Black can barely see images when boot up


One of four things possible, bad lcd bulb, bad inverter that powers the bulb, or bad mainboard that powers the inverter (rare problem).... and sometimes, bad lcd cable, also rare.

To test, you need a good bulb to plug into this inverter and see if it lights. If it doesn't, then your problem is most likely a bad inverter board. Simply shop online somewhere like eBay to find a replacement. Generally they cost around $30 USD shipped. And you can find it located in the lid, at the bottom of the lcd. You will need to remove any screws in the plastic bezels and carefully pop the bezel off to gain access to it.

 

One other thing I should mention, I have seen some laptops that have an lcd cutoff switch, or hibernate switch. When you close the lids, its will either put the laptop into a standby state, or it will simply turn the backlight off on the lcd. I've seen those switches get stuck. Note - not all laptops have them.
