"BLANK SCREEN, CLICKING SOUND, & NO LED INDICATED".
I've bought this particular monitor (along with my "Windows XP" computer) since the Summer of 2005 & it's been used for approximately 3 months. All of a sudden, not only the the screen went bad & went to its "blank" position, but the LED that was under the screen of the monitor stops indicating a flash as well. Finally, everytime I tried applying power to the monitor & turning it on, it constantly makes a clicking sound. These are my symptoms for my "Compaq FS7600 17~Inch Flat~Glass Monitor". Thanks for the help.

When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death". There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.The hard drive needs replacing and Windows installed on the new hard drive to get your laptop working again.
Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of the Windows home screen, then click "Help and Support." Click "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore" beneath "Pick a task." The "Welcome to System Restore" screen will appear on the screen. 2
Click "Restore my computer to an earlier time," then click "Next." 3
Choose a previous time to restore your computer to by clicking one of the bold dates on the calendar that appears on the screen, then click "Next." Click "Next" again when a dialog box appears asking you to verify the restore point. Your computer will be restarted and restored to the previous point you indicated. If restoring that point does not work, repeat the process and restore the computer to a previous point.

Click "Toshiba Upper/Lower Limit Repair Tool" in the Resources section, then click the name of that same highlighted title in the Resolution section of the document to download the file. Save the file to your Windows desktop. The file name will be "RmvFltrs.exe." 5
Click "RmvFltrs.exe" on the Windows desktop if you are using Windows XP to run the installer program for the software; if you are using Windows Vista, right-click "RmvFltrs.exe," then click "Run as Administrator."

Restart your Windows XP or Vista computer to finalize the software installation. Your CD/DVD drive should appear in My Computer.
Display is Blank
Press a key on your Toshiba Satellite laptop. This will wake the laptop up if it is sleeping. 8
Press "Enter." If you have set up a password protected screensaver on your computer, a dialog box will pop up asking you to enter your password. Enter your password and press "Enter" again to access the laptop. Your screen will be blank prior to press "Enter" because you did not choose a screensaver. 9
Press the "Fn" and "F5" keys at the same time.You may have hit these buttons previously, causing the built-in laptop screen to go blank because the computer thinks the video is being sent to an external monitor. If you press the "Fn" and "F5" buttons and the display does not appear on the screen, press the buttons again to make sure your laptop screen is set as the default monitor.
Disconnect the monitor , from the computer, switch the monitor on , if you have some kind of Dell self test box running on the screen. The monitor is OK . The problem can be with the video card or resolution settings.
Also, try connectin the old monitor you had hooked up with the system to check ,if you see anything
Assuming your running Windows as the operating system on your computer, go into Display Properties and set the refresh rate to something other than 60 hz or default. On my XP computer this can be done by right clicking on the desktop, clicking Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Anything in the 70, 72, or 75 hz range should work fine. If this does not fix the problem and the monitor is out of warranty trash it and get another one.
