    Is everything fain even the BIOS and the logo?

    If so you need a new back light. Once replaced the problem will be resolved

If you are running off of battery or ac adapter, this sounds to me like an issue with the power options.  Got to your control panel, click on power option.  Go to advanced and there you can turn your brightness up.  laptops go into this mode to conserve power.  More annoying than anything.

WINDOWS TRIES TO LOAD , THEN SCREEN GOES BLANK.


Try booting to safe Mode (f8), see if you get a normal screen that does not shut off. If you do, then suspect a graphics driver update (usually caused by windows update) that is incompatible with your laptop. Solution is to uninstall the graphics driver and re-install one from the the dell support / downloads website for the OS that you are using.

If it will not boot even in safe mode, try connecting it to an external monitor, if it boots ok on there, you can eliminate graphics chip problems and look at the possibility that it may be the inverter failing or the backlight in the screen.

To give rough indication, if the screen image can be seen in a dark room albeit very faintly, it is the backlight that is the problem, if there is no image at all, suspect the inverter, both are located behind the screen bezel.

If the screen refuses to boot into life on an external monitor, you have a problem with the graphics chip on the motherboard

My laptop boots up but the screen is blacl


Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor first. If this works, you can eliminate the Graphics chip as a source of your problems.
If it fails to work on an external, the graphics chip on the motherboard has possibly gone bad.

If it does work, you have 3 possible problems:

  • The VGA cable has been damaged (unlikely)
  • The inverter has gone, you can check this by seeing if you can see a faint image on the screen in a darkened room, if you cannot, probably the inverter is at fault and will need replaced
  • The backlight has gone on the screen, if you CAN see a faint image, then the screen is getting power but the lamps are not lighting, you will need to replace the screen of the laptop.

ASUS A2S machine boots but screen is blank. has POST sound.


Offer some light to the screen as...it might just be the inverter if you lucky look really closely at the screen close up and see if you can see a faint image...
Or even better still try and connect it to a external monitor and see if it boots up properly..if it does then it looks like the inverter..or a lose wire from the motherboard to the screen.
Cheap enough on ebay,and easy to replace,..

If it doesn,t post on a external monitor,it may be a issue with the graphics card...if so..then google your make and model and see if the graphics card is onboard or a separate card...if its separate then it can be replaced quite easy if you have the experience..

If it,s onboard then you will have to take it to some1 who can maybe reflow that part of the board as it may be a weak solder joint,or replace the graphics chip

Hope this helps....if so please rate this,and if i can be anymore help..

Regards

Screen not working.


Hi,
If there's an external image, here's the possibilities:
Bad inverter (25-30.00)
Bad backlight in lcd (new lcd 75.00-100.00)
THe cable has been disconnected from the lcd or the motherboard.
That's really all it can be. Is there any image, no matter how faint, on the lcd? If so, I'd go for a new inverter.
Good luck, hope it helps.
