    Does the laptop boot up at all?

    If not, reseat the memory modules.

    Did you connect an external monitor to the video output and boot up the laptop, did you get an image?

    If it's completely black an inverter won't change anything.

    Can you see anything at all?

Have you any other A/V ports out ie Svid etc if so try that via an A/V lead, if that works reset your bios settings to minimal settings, if that doesnt work search the 'net someone somewhere has had the same problem! try shining a flashlight/lamp onto the screen whilst booting up, if you see anything on the screen then your inverter is definatly gone and yes it could still be your inverter! your laptop may have software/hardware issues with an external monitor?

Compaq presario v5000 dark screen and failing hard drive


The problem you described, is related to the inverter board.
There's a little board, that take care of lights on the monitor. You must replace the inverter board to solve the problem.

Here you have an image, of an inverter board.

Good luck, and be safe!
Inverter boards, it's dangerouse to replace yourself if you don't know what you are doing. High-Voltage inside :)

The screen on my laptop flickers colors and there are lines running through through middle red blue green ect.. it does work on an external monitor tho could this be the lcd inverter


Lines on the screen means the LCD is bad and needs to be replaced. The inverter just makes sure the lcd turns on. That wouldn't cause lines on the screen.

Black screen on mu compaq R3000


You can try:

reseating / swapping the memory

booting the computer with the battery out.

You probably damaged the motherboard with the drop.

There are a few other things you can try too, but let's try the easy stuff first.

Problem with my screen


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

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.

Compaq Presario R3000 dim screen but not dark


Sounds like the auto-dim in the BIOS is set too low. Fortunately the Compaq R3000 allows you to adjust the brightness right from the keyboard. Hold down the [FN] function key while tapping the [F8] key will brighten the screen, while [FN]-[F7] will dim it. The settings are different for running on AC power and battery, so you must do each individually.

Compaq r3000 dark screen


If you already replaced the inverter and the screen still continues dark, you need to replace your lcd screen. Your video card is good due you have signal with external monitor.

Black screen!


lets check a couple of things. I'm sure you know that a laptop can be hooked up to a external monitor or projector, There is a button usually F5 Or close to it that will turn your monitor off and send it to the external one. In some models of toshiba this will stay in effect even when you turn it off. You can toggle this setting by holding the FN key down and pressing the appropriate "f" key. try this first before you chuck it. There also may be a problem in the bios. Let me know how it turns out. Take care..Be mucho blessed... Mark

My LCD screen is only 10% viewable


If you have a LCD Monitor check the external video port. If that works fine chances are you either need a new inverter ($70-150+) or a new LCD ($400+).

Suggest taking to a local repair center for accurate diagnosis.
