If you remove the power adapter, battery, RAM and hard drive. Plug in the power adapter and power it up. If you get a screen with error information on it, the motherboard is probably OK, if nothing there is a motherboard issue. If you get a screen remove the power, insert the RAM and power up again. Do the same after adding the hard drive.

SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite P200 doesn't boot

Try pressing FN/F5 keys simultaneously, or the key that toggles internal/external Display. Look for the double screen Icons on the keys.

Tap the Pause Key.

Restart and press and hold F8 key when Toshiba logo appears. When the boot Menu appears, select Last Known Good Configuration.

If all else fails ther should be a reset button on the side of the LT. Consult owners Manual for location

I am assuming you have plugged the screen into a known working power source. You have pressed the 'on' button to turn the screen on and you have hooked up the screen to the back of the computer. What I need to know is if when you power up the computer if you see any text at all from the post AND if you see any lights on the front of the screen itself. (most all screens have lights on the front of them to tell you they are turned on, and most of the time the light is green). If the screen is on but is getting an orange or amber light that means something. Also if you see text or something on the screen initially but not in windows then it could be a resolution or driver issue.

hello

these links below have information (drivers, solutions) for your laptop, that will assist you.. review them , i am sure this will give you background causing BLACK display on your screen.

If there is a problem with the LCD display's back light or a corrupted graphics driver, the display may appear blank but the notebook may be displaying information. Attach an external monitor to test the display. If the image displays on the external monitor, there may be a graphics driver conflict. To resolve this, turn on the computer and press f8 key, then select Enable low-resolution video . If the image displays on the LCD display in low resolution, you can download and install the latest drivers for your specific graphics driver. If there is an image on the external monitor but the notebook display remains black, contact HP for technical assistance.

Acer aspire 5515(laptop) screen is black turns on screen stayscompletly black...no acer logo nothing just a black screen. power button comes up green u can hear the fan and harddrive start up


If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

Blank screen


Did it boot all the way? Do you hear the fan running, disk drive spinning? If it sounds like it booted but the display is black, try this:
When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Black screen no cursor no keyboard use


When you powered on the machine did you hear any beeps, hear the fan running, the disk drive running, lights blinking, hear the cd drive click, see the light on the cd drive door for a second or two when it clicks? If these things are happening you are getting power. If not, your problem might be with your power supply, hard drive or motherboard. Remove the power cord, then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, then plug it back in and press the power button. if it boots you had a static charge. If you get nothing at all but a silent system your power supply is bad. If it sounds like your computer is running but you can't see anything on the screen you might have a problem with your screen or video card. If you have another monitor try using it and see what happens. if it works so you can see things then your monitor was bad. If it does not work with another monitor but you still hear fans, and see lights and hear the disk drive spinning, then your video card is probably bad.

Computer has power, hear the fan and HD trying to run however nothing happens, blank screen. Plugged in external monitor and still black screen


HP laptops have several problems with GPU overheating. Could also be a bad stick of RAM or a bad hard drive. You will need to remove each one and try to power on after each is removed. If still wont light up the screen you probably have a motherboard problem with the video chip (AKA: GPU processor)

My acer aspire one aoa 150 shows a power light on and i can hear the fan but there is nothing but a black screen.


Your hard drive may have died. and if this is not the case and you can hear the drive spinning, then your monitor power cord from screen to motherboard has failed.

How do I know if my Directv HR22-100 HD receiver is dead?


one last thing you can do, if it doesnt work the dvr is dead. reset the dvr and wait for the hello screen and then the screen will go black. when it turns black, hold the down arrow (on the front of the dvr) and the record button for at least 5 secs. this will re-format the hard drive. if it doesnt work the dvr is dead
