Most laptops go into standby mode when the lid is closed. To stop this, (Windows XP) click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, then click on the Advanced tab, select "Do nothing" in the drop-down for "When I close the lid of my portable computer"

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

SOURCE: Gateway W340UA laptop - no display...

Sometimes it di happen , specialy in most laptop which is being used more frequently and longer usage, the advisable use of a laptop is atleast 2 to 4 hours then shut it off and have cool down for 30 minutes to one hour then you can used it again, unless you got a support inclined base for laptop with support ventilating fan to help down minimize the heat accumulated during the usage.

have it check your video card with the proper technician, but first try to cool down your unit and try to open it again, and if still does'nt work then have it check by the service center

How do i fix white screen on my kav60 acer aspire one


The KAV60 is also the AOD250.

Netbook OFF, monitor OFF, connect an external monitor to the netbook's VGA port.

[You can use a VGA monitor. Looks like a small TV.
This is an example of a VGA port,

VGA connector Wikipedia the free encyclopedia



Note* VGA port doesn't have to be blue in color ]


Turn the monitor on. Turn the netbook on.
If there is no image shown on the external VGA monitor, press and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(The F5 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No image on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down once more, and tap again on the F5 key.

Still no?
Problem is internal in netbook. Probably graphics chipset soldered to the motherboard.
Replace motherboard.

Image shows on external monitor?
Problem is with Video Cable or laptop LCD screen.
MOST of the time it's the Video Cable.

The Video Cable connects to the motherboard, in an area under the Keyboard. It then routes up under the left Hinge, and into the Display Panel.
Inside the Display Panel it then connects to the LCD screen.

With frequent opening and closing of the netbook, the Video Cable can be pulled on. This can cause damage to the Video Cable.
(Stretched/broken wires inside the sheath of the cable)

And/or it can cause the connection at the motherboard to be loose, and/or at the LCD screen.

Example of Acer Aspire One video cable,

For ACER Aspire One D250 LCD Screen Cable DC02000SB10 KAV60 New

You can remove the Video Cable, and check it's continuity with a multimeter, or if the cost is reasonable to you simply replace it.

8 to 10 dollar video cable is not the problem? Then problem is the LCD screen itself.

My money is on a loose video cable connection, or damaged video cable.

For additional questions or to have me clarify/simplify anything in my solution, please post in a Comment.

I have a Sony vaio PCG 5K7P, and it's not getting started...when I switch it on...only the fan works and the lights on wifi and the charger are working....no display on the screen and no processor


Laptop on, shine a flashlight at the LCD screen at various angles.
If you see a faint image the problem is the Backlight, or screen Inverter.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.
(IF the laptop uses a screen Inverter.
CCFL backlighting uses a screen Inverter.
LED backlighting may, or may Not use a screen Inverter)

No faint images?

See if the problem is the graphics chipset, or Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

Graphics chipset:
Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector, (port),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for cable example.
You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type of monitor allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the F8 key. (The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)
Still no display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

No display on external monitor, suggests a problem with the graphics chipset.

Most of the time the graphics chipset itself isn't the problem.
It is due to inadequate cooling for the graphics chipset, and this causes a problem with the MOUNTING, of the graphics chipset TO motherboard. (BGA surface mount)

If this is found to be the problem I will go into more detail.
I don't believe that is your problem, but there is NO guessing here.
We are following a diagnostic flowchart.

Good graphics on the external VGA monitor, means there is a problem with the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

A) Video Cable connections can be loose.
Connection at motherboard side, or connection of small cable to screen Inverter from Video Cable, (IF it uses a screen Inverter), or connection at back of LCD screen.

A LOT of times a loose connection can cause what you are seeing.

Video Cable could be damaged. Wires inside stretched/broken.

Inside the Display Assembly:
Video Cable checks out after a continuity test, then the screen Inverter is next in the diagnosis. (IF a screen Inverter is used)

Screen Inverter proves to be good, the problem is the LCD screen.
NO screen Inverter is used, the problem is the LCD screen.

Sony drives me crazy with their model numbering system.
What is the other model number on the bottom of the laptop?
Start with a VGN?
Post back in a Comment.

Once I have a model number I can deal with, I will post back with step by step info, and additional manual information.
(Service Manual. Perhaps pictorial guides, and video/s)

[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.

Laptop turns on but screen dose not


First, connect an external monitor, turn on your laptop, then pres fn+f5 or f7 button to switch signal to external monitor.
If it's not working, then your motherboard (if your video card is integrated), or your video card should be replaced.

If external monitor is working, than you have problem with connections from motherboard to display, or display itself.
Broken video cable (or cable has come loose from the connector), broken lid switch, display backlight or inverter.


Hope this will help you...

You've got a loose connection between the laptop and the internal screen. Take the computer to a qualified technician, tell him/her the symptoms, especially the part about the external monitor working fine, and pay the technician to fix it.

Connect broken laptop screen to external monitor


Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

Samsung laptop black screen


Sounds like a loose connection between your mainboard, inverter or LCD. Try to connect an external monitor and see if the display appears to the external monitor. If a display appears on the external monitor, you need a qualified technician to check your laptop. I fixed 3 laptops with that same symptoms, 1 has loose connector, 1 has ground problem and the other is an inverter.

Won't power on. No lights at all.


You have done Most of it...
You have tried to swap the Power cords that work fine with the Other Monitors and If that do not work there are 2 things externally that could be bad.

1-> The Power Button.
2-> The Port where you would Plug in the Power cable.

so Check if the Power button is stuck or Broken, or Loose out of control.
besides that If with one of the good power cord connected when you connect an external Head phone and you receive some Kind of sound out of it.,
It could be because of the Display settings.
you can try the monitor self test.
By having the Monitor Unpluged from the computer but still connected to the power.
you would see a message that shows, that the VGA cable is not pluged in if that shows your Monitor is fine otherwise it is BAD.
