Two suggestions:
Toggle the display by pressing Fn+F8 (Function key+F8). Wait a few seconds between attempts in order to allow the system to switch display ports.

Attach an external display to the system and power it on. Once you think it has had time to boot, toggle the display as described above.

Do Either displays work at any point during either test?

If no, the display chipset on the system board has failed & the system board would need to be replaced. If only the external display functions then you have a failed LCD, or the cable/connectors between the LCD and the system board are suspect.

- try to connect you machine to an external monitor
- if the display appears on your external monitor the problem would be the LCD screen of your laptop (need to replace it)
- if there is no display on both laptop and external monitor i suspected it's the motherboard faulty
- send your laptop to service center to replace it (if it is underr warranty it's free

I have a black screen when i push the power button, it wont turn on but i hear the fan


i have had a problem like this but im not sure if its the same.
I had dropped my laptop and the whole thing just went black. i would press the power button and the power light would come on but the screen would just stay black and the eventually when my laptop heated up the fan would go on but still there would be a black screen. I later realized that my motherboard had been damaged. and this is a very serious problem and new motherboards cost nearly just as much as the laptop itself.

So if you have the same problems as i had then your motherboard has been damaged and you will have to get it replaced

When i turn on my laptop i see the vaio symbol and then the screen goes black. nothing after that. i read a little about it on the net, and apparently it could have to do with static electricity when...


2 things it can be
  1. dc jacks bad to find out take battery out and try to turn it on
    you may have to wiggle it to one side to get the power to work but if this works and u dont get it fixed right it will kill the motherboard that just the way to test it
  2. leave it running and try to see if u see or hear anything
    if u just let it sit if u do see i light image that the bacl light or the inverter is out

HPW2338h goes black after about 3 seconds. Push power button on, it turns on and then black after 3 seconds. Power light on monitor stays on.


hi,

you can try to change the screen resolution with a spare monitor to a different setting, usually higher 1024X768, then unplug the old monitor and then plug in the flat screen. try different resolutions untill it submits. if you cant get it to run on your machine, take it to another computer and see if you can get it to run on that. if it wont run on either then you have a problem with the monitor. pawn shops usually have flatscreens for way cheaper than new..

Getting power but wont boot up or anything


pull out everything in the computer except what's required to boot...so any pci cards or video cards (if you have onboard video). you can also try pulling out the ram (while unpowered AND unplugged) and then booting to hear beeps...if you pull the ram out and the computer doesnt make a sound, its probably a bad motherboard and needs to be replaced. if you hear beeps, try replacing the ram or disconnecting other parts...like harddrives, optical drives, modems and what not.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up


Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.
