Re: display on laptop loose

Try tightening all the screws around the hinge area, if that is not the problem I am sure the actual hinges can be replaced for a fairly reasonable amount.

Why is screen blank?

You never said if it worked with external monitor. You also didn't say if you tried the [fn]+[Fx] key combination on the keyboard to try and switch displays.
But, if you look at the screen closely, at an extreme angle and can faintly see the graphics then that means the backlight has blown out. For the displays with LED backlighting it's usually just a wire or circuit to repair. For the screens with CCFL (fluorescent) lighting it's a simple matter of replacing the inverter board.

Dell inspirion n5010 , 8beep problam

Eight beeps means a display failure.
Since the external monitor works, you know it's not a fault with the video card.
With the notebook off, hold down the "D" key and power the notebook on. If you get solid colors on the screen, then you know the LCD is good. I would look for a problem with the video cable.

Black spots laptop screen

Pinpointed spots can be damaged pixels that no longer light up when energized. They cannot be repaired and you will have to live with them, or get a new display. Try to use the Color Adapter port to a standard LCD Screen. On the side of the computer is a small 9 pin (usually blue) port whereby you can attach a desktop monitor as an alternative to the LCD Panel on the laptop.

Black screen

Your LCD display has been damaged. If using an external monitor is OK - continue to do that. That can work for a long time.
It's probably better to get another laptop than pay to have the HP G4-110NR repaired.

Pc starts but black screen

Bad video card, bad hard drive, bios battery. If you have a screen but only a blinking cursor on it, likely a bad hard disk drive, meaning all your data and files are now gone, also your os is likely inaccessible. If you can heart it boot up like normal through speakers then video card or monitor, more likely the monitor's power supply is bad, find another monitor (size not important, just the display connector) and connect it to your PC with the power off. If it works then it's the monitor that is bad, purchase a new monitor, if another known working monitor doesn't solve the screen issue, it's probably your video card. A new card is cheap and you should be able to install a new one and have basic display until you install the drivers.

the most likly suspect is the socket in the laptop, after some time they get warn and the connections on the motherboard come loose if you take it to a pc repair centrue for a fee they can disassemble the laptop and re solder the socket to the board.

Sir procceser fix the board and . suddenly damage the the board and not come a disply which problem

If you have replaced the processor and have fix it then suddenly after a while the display in your monitor is gone, the video card in your motherboard could have come loose.
Detach this video card from the motherboard and reseated this properly.
Make sure also that the vga cable is fix properly on both the video card and the monitor.

Post back if you still have problems.

There's a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. If its either one of them, you will not be able to fix that by yourself since you will need to replaced the part itself. But there's one simple solution that may fix the problem if its not the hardware itself.This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,

1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter

2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds

3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.

4. Check if you will see any difference.

5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.

If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

No display on monitor

Hi, sounds like a problem with your base unit, might be a lose graphics card, a stick of memory might need taken out and put back in. shouldnt be expensive to fix. as that will give you the fault that you describe with the monitor. as the base unit aint posting, and the signal aint being recieved, if you have basic knowledge you should try taking out the graphics card and refitting it, usually does the job :-) All the best, John
