Question about Compaq Evo N1020V Notebook

1 Answer

The screen is blank

The notebook starts up and work OK, but the screen is blank (sometimes I can see the screen but it's very very faint). When I tilt the display, in one angle it switches and everything is visible and OK. Everytime it is the different angle but in most cases inappropriate for working. In repair services they told me that it cannot be fixed because they have to order a completely new display for a price of a new notebook. After that they always offer me a new notebook. I think they only want to make money when I buy a new one. Could you help me to solve this problem? Thanks a lot. (

Re: The screen is blank

Before you go out and buy a new laptop, you might want to consider this. The problem, as described would indicate that you may have a LCD cable connector that is loose. To check this out, you will need to access the motherboard to reseat that end of the cable and access the inside of the LCD to reseat the other end. If this doesn't work, you might want to try replacing the LCD cable itself.
If you need any additional information, please feel free to ask. If this information has assisted you in the resolution of you problem, please return here to give my assistance an appropriate final rating.
Thanks you, and have a super day!

I am trying to diagnose a problem with my son's laptop screen going blank. I shall try to describe the symptoms. 1. When plugged into an external monitor, everything works fine. 2.The laptop screen...

Have you check the cable that goes from the screen at the motherboard? Usually this cable is not visible; it is hidden it one of the joints between screen and main body of the notebook.This cable is the most common problem in the cases that the notebook keeps on working although the screen is black. You can check it by opening slowly - slowly the screen all the way up and closing again slowly. If there is a cut at the cable your screen will get black at a specific slope.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, accept my solution.

Thanks and regards

Blank screen

can you check real close if the screen is very faint instead cause if the illuminator is gone then you might just need to get that fixed instead of the whole screen.

Have you tried pressing F8 on boot-up and log into safe mode under administrator, no password, and right click on any empty space on the desktop, left click on properties, left click on settings, select a lower resolution,( e.g. 1024X768 ) select apply, select ok, reboot, log in as normal
