Does anyone know if it is a software or hardware problem as i have warranty on hardware only?

I think you should bring it to the computer shop. If the spill got inside your laptop, it will be risky to remove the laptop parts and clean it all by yourself.

How do I get my laptop to stay on indefinetly


I do not believe you can because after a time, the power saver automatically turns it off. Unless you are using it and keep it going. Even if you are listening to cd on your computer, the screen will go dark, but you can still hear the music. It's called the "Power Saver."

My acer aspire laptop 5336-2524 worked fine until today when i turned it on everything works fine except the screen stays black. What can i do to fix this


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Screen will not stay bright


That's the battery saver feature of that Philips portable. If you use an A/C power adapter, the light will stay bright.

Hope this helps!

Laptop screen stays dark. Hve tried the function and arrow buttons but no joy


Press the FN button and hold it down and then press the brightness functions. Most people dont know that also could just be the monitor or you have it on battery saver mode which will make the screen seem dark check the batt icon that might be the problem

Dark Screen


Try connecting to an external monitor. If the monitor displays correctly, then the problem is with either the inverter or the screen.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
