Hi, i have had the privilege of work on these particular series of HP Laptops. This may sound daft, but have you tried the brightness keys? If so you have a fault with the backlight which is caused by 1) a fault on the Mainboard 2) the inverter has blown (a small circuit board the regulates the voltage from main board to the lcd screen) 3) The backlight on the lcd screen has blown. You will need to determine where the fault lies before paying out large sums. You may want to get a diagnostic done by a Local laptop company. Hope this helps.

Toshiba screen is blank ans light on under F10 key.


Is the screen completely blank, or just dim? If it is dim, then most likely your lcd power inverter is bad, and needs to be replaced, which is the cheapest part to replace. If it is completely blank then you should try to hook up an external monitor to the laptop, and don't get any video, then most likely there is an issue with your motherboard or video card. The external monitor method sometimes needs you to press a combination of the Fn key and another F key in order to switch from your laptop lcd to an external monitor.

My screen has just gone blank and i can't get it to come back up with any color or anything if i squint really hard i can barely see the windows log in but that's the extinct of it


have you tried connecting you laptop to an external monitor and check if get the same issue? If the issue does not appear in external monitor it means your laptop LCD has problems, but if it appears in the external monitor then your video card or motherboard has problems and needs replacement.

Hp tx 2000 screen does not show after boot up..wat can i use to get this to work.


Can you hear the hard drive spinning and does the computer appears to be running but you get a blank screen? If you look at the LCD screen at an acute angle and you see a dim image. then you have a backlight problem. To determine if you have a video card problem or a lcd screen problem, Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first and then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Get back to me with the results of these tests and any error messages etc. so I can advise you.

Screen goes blank while typing


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The display screen has turned black


When you connected the external monitor thto the laptop did it display?

If so then you have to reset the monitor port. Hold down the function key and find the FKEY that shows a picture of a monitor. Press that until you get the laptop screen back.

Typical use is:
  • 1 press = external monitor
  • 2 presses = laptop and dual monitor
  • 3 presses = just the laptop screen

Lcd screen is on, but blank - nothing - no desktop comes up


Have you made sure it's not just switched over to external monitor? Check by holding the "Fn" button (usually at the bottom left of the keyboard) while pressing the key (often one of F1-F12) marked with different monitors. On mine this is F5. This may toggle it back if you have toggled it off by accident.

If it really is broken, I'd say $200 for a new one is a fair deal, at least if the computer itself is fairly up to date and powerfull.
