Re: dark screen

I have a mx6024 that had the same problem. I took off the bezel from the LCD. Under that you'll see a metal frame that holds the Lcd in. Look down to the bottom left side and theres a wire from the power supply should be there. If the wire goes under the frame, lift the frame to slide the wire out.Use a little piece of electrical tape the keep the wire in place and put the unit back together.The frame was shorting out the monitor, I haven't had the issue again since.

I have a Toshiba C850 and when i switch on the laptop it flashes a black toshiba screen and then goes to a blue screen with yellow writing which says Enter Password. It gives three attempts ten shuts

this is either a bios or hard drive code needed for unit to proceed extremely hard to reset sue to the fact that the code is in a non volatile chip.

Hi when i turn on my laptop it powers up then screen goes black ,in the top left hand corner it says password there is a horiizontal little line flashing and it wont let me type in the password,please...

Sounds like the BIOS password has been set to prevent unauthorized usage. If you don't know the password, you can't use the computer and it can't be reset except by Toshiba.

White screen with black vertical hypen lines???

Hi, you should get an update for your graphics driver and the Bios update. After the updates for the driver. Do a hard reset. To do a hard reset. We need to shutdown the notebook. Remove the battery. Remove the power cord. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Do not expect the turn on. That would be weird. Actually we are trying to reset something internally. After this. Test if the issue goes away. Hope this helps!

M-series gateway (m1629) press start button, nothing

Taken apart, looking for abnormal solder etc checked powers switches decided that this unit was acting like it may have shut down due to excessive heat issue. pulled battery on board, tested ok, re-installed everything and found that this unit now is active. Conclusion: I suspect the bios shut this unit down, hard reset correct this issue.

Very, very dark display screen (almost completely black)

What you are describing is the inverter in a the laptop display going bad. The only fix is to purchase the correct display inverter for that model and install it in your laptop display.
