How do I tell if my emachine e725 black screen is the video cable, inverter or screen backlight -lcd screen - briefly flashes when booting up, then goes black - I can hear all the log in sounds working -

Take the laptop in a dark room and point a flashlight at the screen: if you can see the image it's the inverter, if not it's the cable or the video chip.

As soon as it come on it shutdown and lcd is dark but you still can see in dark lcd

It doesn't sound like the system is shutting down. It sounds more like the LCD display back-light isn't working. Try connecting an external monitor to you system and booting it up. You may find that the external monitor has video. You may also toggle through the three state video selections. Hold down Fn and tap F7. this should take you through all three steps. Good luck.

If this was helpful Please rate the solution high. thanks.

Acer Aspire 5100 Laptop Screen Works Intermittently

Since you have video with an external monitor your lcd panel is going out.This is not hard to repair only costly

LCD is on...seems like backlight is not functional; when external monitor connected, boot-up and bios screen visible. After boot-up, screen goes to "power save" mode and will not return

Use the 'FN' key (blue coloured?) and one of the other blue-coloured keys to "toggle" the video:

1. LCD only
2. external monitor only
3. both LCD & external

After boot-up, Windows defaults to "LCD only", and so the external monitor goes to "sleep".

The screen goes very dark within a minute after booting up = I can just barely see the menu page

When you say screen goes very dark when it booted to windows so it means that when you turned on the laptop when the dell logo flashes the screen was fine? if thats the case could you please try this. after turning on the laptop you will see the dell logo flashes immediately keep tapping on F2 and then it will show you the BIOS setup utility, please check if in BIOS setup display goes dark as well. If yes then try this, after turning on the computer when dell logo flashes keep tapping on F12 to boot menu then select utility partition to run the diagnostics. Please run test on the LCD check if display goes black when running the LCD test. Then try this when you sees the dell logo keep tapping on F8 to boot in safe mode check if in safe mode display goes very dark. Try this too, boot in F8 then select last known good configuration check if the settings on your display will be fix. If you can boot to safe mode no problem then uninstall the display or video driver. then restart computer.
You can also try to connect an external monitor if you have one just try to isolate if issue is on the LCD or the video card. If the display is dark as well in external monitor then video card needs to be reseated if fails then replaced. In situation like this most video cards is integrated to the motherboards. So replace motherboard.

Laptop monitor goes black

Welcome to Vista. Windows Vista is automatically set up to power down after you have left it alone for too long. If you press the power button everything should be fine. Otherwise tell me what happens.
