This might be your conector from the screen to motherboard.if you carefully press down on the key board in the area around f6 keys -f11 keys and number 6 key to + may be enough to get the screen connctor down.But be careful.If you are brave enough you may lift bezzle and remove keyboard and de-tatch the screen connector c;ean motherboard connector and re-atatch carefully

Re: No laptop screen.

One other thing mate,

If you have an external video output on the back of the laptop, hook up a monitor to it and see if you get a normal screen on that. If so, you may have a bad lcd display...

fooled me more than once on that...

Re: No laptop screen.

Hi, Based on your post/description and assuming there is sufficient power to the unit, I would think that it is not a display problem but rather the motherboard is not booting. Since it is very likely that the video shares memory, it may be memory problem. You have to turn your laptop upsidedown and look for the panel/latch/cover of the memory. There might be a small screw or two that you have to remove before being able to flip it open. Inside would be 1 or 2 memories, try wiggling them a bit, remove/reinsert, clean the prongs/pins or simple reseat them. Normally there are two locks on both sides of the memory that keeps it inplace. On the other hand, to verify that your motherboard is booting even without a display, boot normally even if you can't see anything, wait a minute or so to let things run as they should, the numberlock and capslock should work even without a display if your MB booted just fine, if not then it is the MB and you may need the services of a qualified professional to have it fix. Hopes this gives you an idea. Good luck and pls post again how things turnup. Kind regards.

SOURCE: Inspiron 6400 doesn't start.

On Flash Flash indicates that no RAM memory is being detected. So remove both RAM modules, insert 1 at a 30 deg angle till the gold contacts cannot be seen, then lock it in place, and see if the RAM is detected. Test both modules in both slots, see if system will boot with at least one. If no change, try a new RAM module, if still no change, replace the motherboard

SOURCE: laptop turns on no picture on screen.

when you power up the computer press F8 key then if you cna see safe mode and other menu then your computer is ok only screen resolution issue for that enter in enable vga mode.
then go to control panel and then dispaly then settings then changfe screen resolution to 1024*768
then if you can't see safe mode and other menu then you have reset your bios
For that you need to reset factory defaults settings for bios.
For reset bios u have to open back side of your laptop then u find motherbord circuit there.
pull cmos cell on motherbord for 15 minute then it reset to defaults.
Also u can reset with jumper settigns read carefully on mother bord there is 1 jumper near cmos cell u read there " bios reset or clear"
It is on 1-2 position right now set it in 2-3 position then power up then all bios settings are reset.
then again set it in 1-2 its original position.

There is a white blank screen when i turn on

A white blank screen usually means that there is no data reaching the LCD. This can be caused by a bad video card, bad cable, or bad LCD. Rarely, the cable is just unplugged on either the back of the LCD or on the system board (or video card if separate).

Toshiba M300 screen turns white blank.

White screen means that your lamp (back light) is working absolutely fine, but you could have a loose connection for the data ribbon cable, which sends the images to the monitor.
Carefully open laptop to reach its lcd, there must be ribbon cable which looks like this: mrc-0069.gif
It is very sensitive so be very careful with that, very gently remove this from the chip and reconnect it.
Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask me any further.

Insert your Windows installation disk and select Repair Windows rather than Install. Hopefully it will allow you to boot properly.

Screen stays blank when turned on

take your computer to your dealer and send it for repair.

The problem is most likely the inverter for the screen.
actually to see if that is the problem you can try to put bright light to the screen and see if you barely see the picture.

Blank screen

can you obtain a linux dsl stick / cd - This will help bypass your HD
Do you have floppy drive - if so..can you create a DOS boot disk

try and boot from another media - this will rule out Hard drive / os failure, and focus on the laptop itself.

If this fails - it would appear to be the video driver... let me know from here on..

Stupid blank screen on my Craptop

Could be a simple video driver problem, try starting up your laptop in safe mode (Pressing F8 on boot up). If and when screen comes up highlight 'Start Windows in Safe Mode' Next a list of startup drivers etc will stream down the screen and tell you you are starting in safe mode, allow this. If your lcd screen stays on then it's a driver problem, go to add/remove programmes and uninstall driver the driver and restart your laptop. This should then start in VGA mode all icons will be bigger than normal. Either re-install video drivers from setup/restore disk or go to laptops manufacturer website to download drivers. If no screen even in safe mode LCD probably dead. Please rate solution.
