Question about Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook

Works on external monitor, but not on internal

My 1692 works fine on an external monitor.

however, the internal display does not work.  instead, i see either a blank white screen or blue vertical lines.

is it possible that this is a motherboard problem?  or would the fact that i can see it on an external screen overrule the motherboard issue?

if so, then the problem must be with the screen itself or the screen cable?

what do you think?

    i just bought a new 'internal' monitor, and it is guaranteed to work.  What else could the problem be?  The internal cable looks fine, but if i wiggle it, then the vertical lines jump around.

    Try replacing your inverter it is located just under the screen when you take the trim off.

The monitor does`nt work, but the computer still works,how can I get a Dell monitor to work with the T41 notebook. I have them connected,but the monitor stays black


This may be a defect in the graphics card, since the external monitor (is it properly connected to the VGA-connector and is the power on?) should be recognized automatically and display instead of the internal monitor. The behaviour of the laptop in case an external monitor is connected can sometimes be controlled via the BIOS, which is impossibile to do if the internal monitor or the graphics card doesn't work. I'm afraid that, if you can't reset the BIOS yourself, this may be a case for the repair service.

It displays colorful lines on the monitor...cant see nothing


Test your laptop with an external monitor and find out if the external video goes bad too. If both, internal and external images go bad, you have a problem with the video card.
If external works fine and only internal goes bad, most likely it’s either bad video cable or LCD screen failure.

The computer works but I have a blank screen, it works when I hook it up to another monitor.


Have you tried pressing and holding the "Fn" key and then, while still holding the "Fn" key, press the "F4" key? This toggles between the internal and external displays. There are three settings. The internal LCD only, both internal and external displays at the same time and external display only.

Power saver problems


Did it come out of power-save mode when you connected it to the other computer?

Does your laptop have a "toggle":
* video-output only to internal LCD screen
* video-output only to external monitor
* video-output to both displays
?

If so, toggle the setting to "external" or to "both".

HP pavillion dv9005 no display - works fine on external monitor


If the notebook's video card (which may be on the motherboard) is successfully displaying images on an external monitor it sounds more like a problem with the notebook display or its connections. Probably the motherboard is OK.

HP Compaq 2710p: External monitor does not display anything


Hi,

The display properties indicate the hardware is working, so it's likely just a setting.

On HP/Compaq models you will see a picture, usually on the F4 key that looks like a screen with two lines beside it.

You need to hold down the Fn key(bottom left) and then push the F4 key at the same time to cycle between LCD, external or both.
If it is a newer model, a menu will pop up when you do this asking if you want to duplicate the LCD on the external, switch to the external or extend the desktop onto the external. Select the appropriate setting or continue holding down Fn while pressing F4 to cycle between the settings to the one you want.

If you have re-installed the computer at some point with anything other than the factory recovery set this may not work and I will have to give you a longer set of instructions.

If this works please rate this as fixed, if not reply back and indicate what version of windows you're using and I will post the instructions for the "long" way.
