    also try hitting the F5 and F6 keys, they are used to toggle the screen in projector mode which will cause it not to light up..

    Take out the battery and only turn on the laptop with the ac adaptor plugged in.

HP Compaq 6735s Laptop screen was blank when turned on


When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can put the battery back in and let it charge.

My wife's presario cq60 widescreen laptop has a power problem. For a period of time now, several weeks, on occasion it will simply go dark and nothing lights up. I remove the battery and power cord...


By go dark do you mean it turns off? If not, LED lights on the front of the laptop continue to stay on, but the screen goes dark, this could mean the backlight of the screen is going bad. It might be intermittent, but, a screen consists of two elements, the display itself, and the backlight which is what makes the image bright. If you bring it into a well lit area when it is dark and tilt the screen back and forth, you might see the faint image on the screen. Sadly, screen repairs are expensive, easily exceeding $300 most of the time. It is often a better idea to replace it rather than repair it.

check by removing the battery then put it back again power it on, or without battery power it on directly then check, if still the same problem, the fault is in the motherboard of the laptop, better take it the service center or consult some technician in your area

Dell inspiron 1100 laptop screen won't light up


Sounds like a back light problem, power reset it, pull out the battery and ac adapter and then hold the power button for 1 minute, then replace the power cord and battery and start it up, if it doesn't work try calling dell to see if you can get it repaired under warranty if it is out of warranty take it to a shop.

Can you remove the battery? If so pop it out and leave it out for a couple of minutes then pop it back in and see what happens.

Toshiba laptop wont boot up


It sounds more like your power supply isn't charging the battery.
I would first check to see if the power supply is working properly (you can do this with a regular volt/amp meter, or by taking to your local electronic repair shop). If the power supply turns out to be ok, then next have your battery tested, even new batteries sometimes go dud.
These are both inexpensive (if not free) things to check before you just throw it away or get into a motherboard/processor.
Let me know if this works or not.
