    Hi,

    Thank you for posting a possible solution.
    The problem isn't the screen.
    When I turn on the laptop,
    I hear that it starts for a sec or two,
    but it doesn't boot up!!!!!
    It doesn't get to the point where the screen will light up.
    and
    the F11, etc keys don't do anything either.

    I may have the same problem. I did all the memory reseat, AC power supply checks no luck.



    When I power up, the lights all come on and I can hear the HD start, then no action and it just stays lit with no POST. No messages. I don't think it even loaded the BIOS.



    I did pull the HD out and was able to recover my data. The HD and OS on it worked fine on the other laptop.

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp, follow this to determine the fault.
To determine if you have a LCD screen 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.
  • 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.

    Try reseating the RAM modules and the boot up the laptop. or Try getting the RAM tested at your friendly computer shop.
    Faulty RAM or seating problems with RAM will cause nil response from the laptop.

When i start my gateway netbook lt20 a black screen pops up asking to start windows normally or 3 other options.. why?does this happen?


Usually because you didn't shut windows down properly before turning your computer off or completely draining your battery. If that is the case then simply select start windows normally and as long as you follow the correct shut down procedure it shouldn't happen again. If it does there may be a problem with your windows instalation.

JUST BOUGHT LAPTOP ON 2/22/11 AND TODAY THE SCREEN IS BLACK - G62-407DX AN HP WAS WAITING FOR FARMVILLE TO UPLOAD AND THEN NOTHING.STILL SOUNDS LIKE IT IS RUNNING WHEN SHUT.WHAT COULD THIS BE?


Hold down the power button until the laptop turns off. Wait 5 seconds and turn it on again. Do you see the slash screen as it powers up? Hopefully it will boot into the OS. If it's black the whole time, the video card may be dead. But if you do see a splash screen and it goes black after booting into the OS, you may have caught an infection. Try to boot into safe mode w/ networking and downloading scans to remove a possible infection. I use 3 scanners to remove infections. If the 3 do not clear it, the OS is hosed and needs to be wiped and reloaded. 3 scans: Combofix, SuperAntispyware and Malwarebytes. Good luck.

there is something wrong with the video driver or the monitor...If the screen shows something like the devices when it boots up...and only goes blak when it logs to windows...I mean if you see all on the screen until you get to the windows logo..this is a operating system error ..a driver seting or crash...so ...just reinstall it ..or repair the operation system ..cause if it is a setting on video driver or a error ..you can not fix it if you do not see anything ..

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

When I boot up the screen is all colors and lines


It sounds to me like your cable is loose to the lcd or the video card is not properly 100 percent seeded into the mother board. Prolly the cable in one way or the other, perhaps bad cable.
