Question about Averatec 3200 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen just turned off

My computer was on and I placed it aside to take a call. When I looked back the screen was blank but the computer was still on. I tried restarting and the computer starts, the screen is just not turning on. It's not that it is black it's just not on. Did I hit a button or has my screen died? What should I do?

Re: Screen just turned off

On each laptop there is a power saving button to save power when you close the lid.You might have accidentally hit that switch.
Just try finding out where that switch is and manually try to make it on.

Will not boot up. blank screen

Can you see any light on your computer? Or hear your computer running? Have you tried turning of the power and turning it back on? Also check if the cables on the back of your monitor are still firmly connected. as well on the computer side.
Listen for the computer if it makes any kind of sounds when you turn it on.

When I on the laptop I get a blank screen on it.

If you get the black screen from when you first turn it on it might be worth trying an ATX reset
-Remote the battery and power cable
-Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
-Put the battery and power cable back in and turn back on

Alternativly it could be the grapics driver.
When you first turn the computer on keep tapping F8
You should see Advanced Boot Options, select Safe mode with networking. See if you get a blank screen. If you dont then its the driver and it needs updating.

Look on the manufactures website for the latest version of the driver.

My HP DV5 1159se was working fine last night and then this morning I go to turn it on as usual and a blank white screen comes up. The start tones are the same and I could even type my password in to log on...

If the inverter board or the back light behind the screen were bad your display would be blank, "but windows would be visible barely" the white screen indicates a bad LCD and must be changed. It is also possible the video cable from the motherboard to the screen has come loose and will need to be reseated back into place to fix it.

If your computer is still within warranty, you have an option to request for a recovery cd from Asus which you can use to reinstall your OS. The only thing is, if you use the cd it will wipe out everything on your computer as it will do a clean installation of your OS. Just make sure you have a back up of your files before you use the recovery cd

Computer works fine but has a blank screen. I have it hooked up to a monitor right now and it is fine except for the blank screen.

can you see anything on the screen at all? Look very closely at the screen from different angles under a strong light and see if you can see a faint image on it. If you do it means the back-light is not turning on which is usually a failed inverter board (cheap and easy fix). If you can't see anything at all on the screen then either the cable is not seated properly or is bad (not very common) or the screen itself went out (more expensive repair)

Blank Screen

Well it is possible to install a new screen relatively easily... It is a bit of a mission, Ya need to get a replacement screen & driver board and do the reverse procedure from removal. A screen can be got from say, Ebay, or the net. Otherwise get a reputable place to do it for you.

Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G

When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.

Monitor is blank when we turn the computer on.

Maybe not. Find the FN key. It is usually BLUE in color
Then look on TOP row of Computer keyb (or all over) and find CRT/LCD.
Press the FN and that key and your screen should come back. You accidentally sw. it to CRT (outside, external monitor)
