    Can you see anything on the screen when it boots up?



    Did you tried to connect it to an external monitor?



    You'll see if the problem is with the video chip on the laptop board if no image is displayed... then if you see something it means that the inverter or monitor itself on your laptop is defective.



    hope this helps

Ok now if i understand correctly, you have a complete blank screen when the computer is booting up. And it's the same if you connect to a monitor. Well your video output looks alright then, but no signal is sent to it.

This is a video controler problem and I really hope your laptop is still in warranty because replacing the main board (which includes the video chip along with many other stuff) is very costly.

IF, you can see the POST boot up messages, the previous information is irrelevant. But if as you describe it the screen is black at all times, the main board needs to be replaced.

Anyhow I strongly suggest you contact your dealer or Toshiba to know how much it's gonna cost to replace the main board or even bring it to a local store where they can evaluate the problem and repair it.

Laptop hp cq62 not start, black screen. after pluging ac cord he start itself, and after that, it is impossible turn it of.


You can generally only flash a bios if you can get the machine to boot up into some operating system. Do you get ANY on-screen logos or messages when you apply power to the laptop? Can you get into the bios when you power up the laptop and press Esc (or F2 depending on your model)? Do you hear any sequence of 'beeps' when you power up the laptop? A series of short/long beeps when powering up indicates some kind of error detected by the Power On Self Test (POST) routine. Do you have the HP recovery CD for your laptop? Have you put it in your CD Rom drive and tried to boot up? Check the manual at HP Support for a hard reset procedure- you could have a bad power button board or other hardware problem-it is not usually a BIOS problem.

Laptop screen wont boot


If you don't see the initial BIOS screen you could have a problem with one of the following.
  • A bad motherboard
  • Bad memory
  • In some cases a bad Hard drive


Remove the hard drive and memory (both typically removed from panels on the back. Try rebooting. If you get the HP BIOS screen then either the memory or hard drive is bad. Add each back in one at a time and reboot until you find the problem device and replace. I would also power on the computer and use a flash light on the screen. If you see a faint image of what you should normally see then you have a bad inverter. Lastly your motherboard is bad, not a lot you can do to test that.

I have a fujitsu e8410 which will not start up properly, when i push the start button it shows power but then the fan comes on and the cap num and shift lock leds flash and nothing else. can you help?


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe 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.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

It would seem that your BIOS has become corrupted somehow. First try entering your BIOS setup. I believe for HP computers when you press power tap the F10 key until it opens. There you can try to reset them in some fashion and save. Try rebooting. If that fails then remove the battery and repeatedly press the power button for about 10 seconds.. (make sure it is also unplugged, this is to discharge the power from the system) then replace the battery and try booting again. Otherwise it would seem that you might have tried to load the wrong BIOS into your laptop. Check with HP then if you are still covered or not. :/

I tried to get computer back to factory settings and now i turn it on and the screen is black,it sounds like it is running though,and also the 2 lock buttons light up when turning it on..please help


Follow every step carefully!

First format an USB stick with FAT.

Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

If for some reason you made a mistake during the procedure and it doesn't reboot by itself wait 5 minutes before turning it off, just to be safe that it isn't still flashing the BIOS.
