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.

Connecting from laptop to tv wont work now. It was working fine previously


Check the display settings on your laptop to see if the external monitor output is disabled. There is usually a function key on the keyboard with a picture of a monitor on it which can be used to switch between internal & external monitors.
You may also need to try on another monitor/TV or change the HDMI lead.

Part of the screen stays white in my nc150 netbook Looks like it's a left 1/3 of the screen is always white with some thin black and white vertical stripes but the rest of it works fine. I would like...


Paul -
This absolutely could be the ribbon cable connecting your screen to your motherboard. If you know how to check this, it would be worth trying before spending $150+ on an LCD. Any way you look at it, this is definitely a hardware issue. Just hope it's not the motherboard's onboard video card. Here is a modified answer I gave to a question similar to your issue:
If you turn on your laptop and the display is bad, your issue is with either the LCD screen or the motherboard (since the video card is built-in the motherboard). This will be easy to diagnose.
1.) Plug an external monitor (one which you know works) into the VGA port of your laptop.
2.) Turn on the laptop.
3.) Hold down the FN key (lower-left corner of the keyboard) and press the "CRT/LCD" key (it will be located on the number keys or F1-F12. You do this to tell the laptop that it needs to send the video signal to the external monitor instead of its built-in LCD screen.
If the display is good on the external monitor, then the issue is with the laptop's LCD screen (about $200 for the part plus labor to install). If the display is still messed up on the external monitor, then your problem is with the motherboard ($300-$500 for the part plus a lot in labor cost for installation).

Let me know if this helps you!

Screen particially blacking out with vertical lines at bottom of my DELL laptop. at the bottom of laptop screen there are vertical lines @ 2" they are blue, dark gray,white, purple, light green lines....


Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.

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.

Screen goes blank (white), sometimes screen display will get big


You can update graphics driver, if that does not fix the issue check the display on external monitor. If the external monitor works fine you can isolate checking the display in BIOS Setup scree (Restart your computer and keep tapping F10 to getinto BIOS). If the same issue in BIOS, you may have to change display of the unit.

Montor shows a blank white screen and is unresponsive


Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, if it continues to happen, then probably an internal electronic part/s of your monitor is cold soldered / defective which failed to send signal to other hardware parts of your monitor thus you only see white display. I suggest to bring the unit to an authorized service center fix / replace the cold soldered / defective part/s. regards

I own a evo n510c


If you are hooked up the the external monitor and/or TV and can see the desktop, you can probably reselect the internal display via software from Display Properties.

In most cases you can change from the external display to the internal and vice versa by holding down the blue Fn key, and hitting the proper number on the keyboard. The correct key has a blue icon meant to resemble a monitor on it.

This is if the repair/replacment of the internal screen was done correctly and the screen is actually working. If the screen is not actually working, though, this will not help you.
