    Ok thanks for the uopdate. Now I dont want you to think that I am making fun of this problem. But I have to ask lol

    Have you checked that the brightness control has not been shut down to zero. It is easily done on some monitors as they are push button and some keyboard keys sequence can also set it to reduce to black.
    If that is not the problem then it may well be a new monitor or a repair, although easy to pick up a second hand monitor these days for a few bucks especially the older more cumbersome models.

Power on but no display


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.

Inspiron 1501 wont start


Does it look like it is running with the exception of the screen being black?

Does it ever post anything on the screen when you hit the power button?

Beep tones and blinking lights tells thetechnicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lightscontinuous.

Monitor will not turn on


Monitor will not turn on as in NO Power? When you hit the Power Button the monitor power light does not come on? If so either the power cord is not plugged in good, maybe the outlet you have it plugged into the wall or power strip is not working, or the Monitor is bad and needs to be replaced.

If you are saying the monitor has power but the display is black then:
Look to see if it sounds like the computer is running but nothing is shown on the screen. If so try this:

My laptop not showing anything after switchng on


So, is it powering on and sounds like it's booting up but there is nothing on the display screen? Or is it just not powering on at all?

I will assume it is powering on and booting up, but you don't see anything on the lcd screen.

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.

My Lg Monitor wont show screen (Power Button Flashing)


The monitor is probably on protection.

To start unplug monitor from power and from computer and test computer with different monitor to find out if it is monitor or computer fault.

If it is computer fault and no video signal , then test:

  • Video cable.
  • Video adapter on PC (sometimes integrated on motherboard)
  • Motherboard.

If it is monitor fault , then the monitor is on protection.

When on protection you keep having a flashing led on front of the monitor , and monitor turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the Monitor goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or a broken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.


If you are in situation one, then the monitor will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, faulty inverter board, faulty input board, or a fault on LCD Digital Controller board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

Try moving the video cable, and if the cable is not built in, then also try a replacement cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

BenQ FP591 15" monitor decides to die


Strange that both should show the same symptoms don't you think? Have you changed anything computer wise? Graphics card or resolution? Screeching noise is a puzzle too. How are they powered - internally or via a separate power supply?
