Computer comes on but no display shows on screen

Posted by on

  • when you say the screen does not come on does it turn white with light, or totaly black? and if it is black screen, if you hold it up at an angle can you see windows boot very dim? best way to find out if its the lcd or configuration is plug a desktop monitor in back if it works with that, lcd may need inverter or ribbon cable

After that when the system starts you can do the system restore START--ALL PROGRAMS--ACCESSORIES--SYSTEM TOOLS--SYSTEM RESTORE.
Make your laptop light.Make sure you don't have anything attached to the Laptop and then restart. It could also be your hardware [motherboard,graphics card,screen] problem,if you can,try tightening the screen connection from inside. If that also doesn't solve the problem then you need to go to the company service center. Hope that will do.

I am trying to connect a computer to my tv, this model, but when I do I get the sound from the computer but only the screen background from the computer. Not the streaming event.

OK what that sounds like is that the computer is displaying dual screens - is this a notebook computer with its own screen? If so you may see the live action on the other screen and by default the 2nd screen will show the desktop wallpaper. If you want you could drag the windows over to the other screen simply by clicking with your mouse and dragging the content over. If you only want the TV then you need to go into the display settings and change the TV to be your primary monitor.

Right click on your desktop and select screen resolution, then from the display menu choose your TV, then from multiple displays menu choose - show Desktop only on 1 - and your TV should then be the primary display.

The laptop comes on with all leds showing that it is on but does not display

Check the LED display for the harddrive to see if there is any activity. if there is, then attach an external screen to the VGA port and restart the computer. If it displays on the screen, the you have a problem with the internal video. Most times it may be the inverter.

Computer trise to boot but comes up with light lock on

"light lock on"? I don't understand? If the laptop does not show with external display you have more than a broken screen. Has it been damaged? Dropped?

Pluged cord not the computer to have computer screen come up on tv, only sound and no picture

You need to send the video to external display. Look out for the switch video key on your keyboard that shows the icon of 2 screens or the word CRT/LCD. Now hit the Function key "Fn" + that key and you should see your display.

My other computer, G4 Macbook Pro, has a screen issue. When it is turned on and in process of coming up, the screen shows large sections of odd colors such as light pink or light green or light blue. Then...

Connect an external display to the computer. If the lines and distortion shows up on the external display its the video card, which is attached to the logic board. So, the whole logic board will need to be replaced.
If the lines and distortion don't show up on the external display the issue is the LCD module, which will need to be replaced.

Monitor started to show an all bright white screen, could not view desktop. Now screen will not come on at all.

Sounds like a bad monitor, but just to be sure, hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! The Sceptre Monitor is the issue, the cause is the main board on the back of the display panel processes in coming video signals to correctly display the content, to repair would not justify the cost, cheaper to replace. Now if both screens show the same problem, it will be the video graphics card in the computer.

Pc connected to tv, but only a blue screen shows

Up on your F KEYS is a SYMBOL that looks like a small TV Monitor... HOLD DOWN THE FN (function) key and tap the F key with the monitor.

1. On one click the screen on the computer will go black and you will see the screen now on the TV,

2. On a second click the computer monitor will come back on, and you will also have the TV screen.

4. On a third click you will kill the TV display and end up where you started, with the display on the Computer Monitor only..
