Monitor seems dead won't come on when computer is booted up.

Is the power light on the front coming on?? If not, check the power supply if you have a volt meter. Monitor power supplies die all the time at my hospital and we have to replace them almost weekly.

The computer is completely dead, on battery and mains power cord also?  No lights, no screen resolution (not a flicker) and no HD noise at all - completely dead, but the battery (5 flashing LED's on... should on power along..seems that perhaps the motherboard is's something to try..remove battery..flip over the computer, open the panel with memory..ground your hands on metal..then remove and re seat memory sticks(be careful to NOT touch the gold fingers). close it back up..plug in wall ONLY, try it again.

Dropped and screen went black.still turns on but the screen doesn't work

Attach and external monitor and boot the machine. If you don't have one, ask around your friends and family... someone has a monitor.

If you can see stuff on the monitor when it boots, but when you boot with no monotor the laptop screen is blank, then you most likely have a dead lcd panel on the notebook. It would need to be replaced.

If the external monitor also shows nothing during boot then you likely have larger problems.

I have a NC6000 that will turn on the screen for about 2 seconds during boot-up. everything else seems to work ok-- it aquires a wireless link but the screen is dead. If I turn it off and back on rhe same...

Usually it's in this order. Inverter, lcd / backlight, gpu

A local repair shop would be able to confirm which one. Or you can just order a replacement from ebay for about 10-15 and try replacing it yourself. It's not hard.

Press the FN F5 screen to see if you can toggle the screen on. If you have a external monitor plug it in to the notebook and see if you have video. If it show in the external monitor your LCD screen has gone out.

I hope this helps.
