Screen was blank but power light lit. Rebooted power light lit (light blue but no working screen?


Shut down system by using poer button on tower then unplug tower. Turn power back on and boot in "safe mode with networking". When screen comes up, click on "start", then "control panel". Find and click on "device manager", open and click on continue. Click on box(on right) of "display adaptors". Do you see a warning, ?, !, or yellow triangle? If so click on that and follow proceedure. Right click on your device and in the list you should see "disable". If you see "enable" click on that and exit. Right click on your device again and click on properties. You should see "this device is working properly". If you are using on board graphics, not a graphics card, click on "drivers" tab. Then click on "automatically search for updates...". When finished, restart your system. If you have a graphics card you should update with manufacturer. Let me know make and model of card if you have one. If you are getting beep codes it could be your ram.

Presario laptop screen turns black after bootin git up...


Try using a light on the laptop and check if the images are clearer.

Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 at boot up.

If the same happens there as well then you will have to change the backlight of the display.

It is recommended for you not to open up the display to change the display light as you may run into damaging the LCD itself.

Best would be to contact the manufacturer so that they can get the right part replaced with a similar one.

Toshiba setellite black out


Sounds like the back light on the screen isn't working properly which will need to be replaced if this is the case. Check for a very dark image on the screen when it is booting up in a well lit room, if you can see the computer start up then it is the back light.

Blank


Unplug the monitor from the computer,
it should display the diagnostic screen on monitor in color.
if not reconnect it and boot computer or attach to a running computer with some stuff on the screen,
get a bright light and shine on the screen at an angle do you see the stuff/desktop.if you do the lamp or power supply is bad.
if the monitor is lit and the lamps work but no diagnostics then the video cpu on the monitor is bad.

The beeps are probably BIOS beep error codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the computer communicates computer problems that occur early in the startup processes. It's likely the problem isn't your monitor but something in your computer box itself. If you can tell us what the pattern is we can start diagnosing your problem. We'll also need to know the manufacturers name, the specific model computer you have and what operating system you are running.
