Have you tried an external monitor?

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the display shows on the external monitor that proves your video card is ok and your lcd screen is the issue. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without 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 correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If is shows on the external monitor, then you would have to question if the new screen and lcd inverter is bad. Just because they are new don't mean they work. Are you sure you purchased the lcd screen and inverter that is for your model?

Screen is rolling constantly


. Sounds like its time for a new lcd screen. Try plugging an external monitor to the laptop and see if it behaves the same way. If the external monitor scrolls, then you more than likely have a Video Card problem. If the external monitor displays without scrolling then your lcd screen is bad.

I have an HP dv6707us laptop. The display started getting fuzzy and turning redish and would fail to display anything after a few minutes. I plugged in an external monitor and it works fine. I disassembled...


The screen replacement is defective or the part number is wrong, check the part number on the back of the original screen and compare it against the the one you replaced, it should match.

I have a R51 that when it boots up it only shows a white to gray shade screen


If it is at all possible, connect an external monitor to the computer. All laptops should have a port for an external monitor. If the external monitor works then you screen is most likely bad and needs to be replaced. If the external monitor does not work then your motherboard is probably bad.

My laptop is on and plugged to the monitor, but the monitor says no signal


You have to switch your laptop to a different display mode. Usually it's done by pressing Fn key and F8 - look for a description near this key showing rectangle / rounded rectangle, or text "CRT / LCD".
Usually there are 3 modes:
LCD (internal laptop display) only
LCD + CRT - the picture shows on both displays
CRT - the picture shows only on the external display, allowing you to set a different screen resolution, equivalent to the external monitor's optimum resolution.

My screen wont turn on


Hiya, have you tried plugging in an external monitor to the Blue VGA port of the laptop ?

If so, do you get any display then ?

Hint : you need to plug in the external display 1st, then turn on the laptop. If the External monitor doesn't come on, then you may need to press the Function key on the laptop & the F4 key (Or whichever shows a monitor logo) to get the laptop to switch to external monitor.

If you CAN get display on the external monitor then the problem could either be that the Invertor for your laptop screen has blown, or, the backlight for your Laptop Screen has broken, or the Laptop screen itself has gone faulty. In rare cases, the cable from the Laptop Motherboard to the screen may be faulty or have come away form the connector on either end.

Hope this helps.
