Try connecting the pc to an external monitor and nothing happens sounds like video chip problem or a corrupted operating system. try reinstalling the operating system before going to repair the pc.

SOURCE: My screen doesnt work.

I suggest you to perform these steps.
Test the AC adapter Follow the steps below to determine whether the problem is related to the AC adapter or your notebook system board.

  1. Remove the battery and disconnect all external devices from the computer.
  2. Hold the Power button for several seconds, with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system, and may correct many problems.
  3. Connect the AC adapter to a wall outlet and plug the other end into the computer.
  4. Press the Power button to start the notebook PC.
If the notebook does not start or the display is blank then check the power indicator light or power socket LED. I suggest you to connect the notebook to external monitor and check whether its working or not. Then please perform the harddrive self test also.

SOURCE: The screen still displays the image but the backlight if off

The problem is in fact the backlight as you are saying but i am not sure if it is the wiring to the power supply or if your backlight is just burning out. You can ask the company if you can send it in for them to look at it.

SOURCE: screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to

Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

My lenova g550 hard disc indicator light won't turn opn. the screen is black


Have you made any modifications to the computer lately? (Taken it apart ect?) I had a similar issue with mine. There was a short in the keyboard. I ordered and installed a new keyboard and it has booted up fine ever since.

Try something as simple as checking the keyboard connection, this will require taking the laptop apart though.

Acer 5742z black screen flashing icon


The hard drive has issues, or windows files have been corrupted, Remove hardware from the laptop and reseat it back in place, sometimes this is enough to get it started, if no change! do a operational install with the cd installation disc, if this fails the hard drive should be assessed for replacement.

You may have files that you want to keep that you saved on your hard drive, but if you haven't backed them up then you will have to lose them because the only thing you can do to fix this is use the factory recovery disk which will wipe your hard drive clean.Just put the disc into the disc tray and you should get an option to start the recovery disc when you turn on the computer, it will tell you to press a key to start it which might be f3 or something different, I'm am not sure what key but when you have done that you should be able to start the recovery and wipe the hard drive clean and it should solve your problem

Windows has crashed, some file required got corrupted. Your options are repair of the Windows or a clean install. Put the CD in and try to repair it, if that doesn't work you will need to do a clean install of Windows.

Having removed a cd screen is blank and seems as though a cd is still running a question mark is flashing


The flashing question mark, indicates that the system cannot see the operating system.
Check for a failing hard drive
Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc. insert the Mac OS X install disc. press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard
Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.
If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
If this process finishes without any issues you will have to reinstall your operating system.

The clicking noise usually indicates a hard drive problem. There are replacements available. You can get a replacement hard drive or a flash card drive. Of the two the flash drive is by far the better choice.
