    Many thanks for your help.



    How about changing the hinge into a more robut one so it does not screw up the cable when I move the screen. Do you know how to dismantle a laptop and replace the hinge? I have now an external monitor connected to the laptop so I am able to work with the external monitor.

You may check power settings in control panel and see if somehow the settings for your screen are set to turn off or the power settings program has been corrupted for some reasons. Although I doubt that this the case it is worth to check.

At the same time there is a need for more information about how did that start or if you have done any physical changes to the computer.

Another thing you may do is connect it to an external monitor and see if the same thing happens to the external monitor. If that is the case then I think there is something wrong with your display card.


U MAY ALSO TRY REINSTALLING THE DISPLAY DRIVER..

My HP Pavillion G6 laptop screen goes black if not tilted in two certain positions


Sounds like the cable feeding the inverter is either faulty or has a bad connection. You will need to take the laptop to bits. See utube video.

When i open laptop screen beyond 70 degree angle screen blanks out i then have to close d completly then re open lid making sure ot to exceed 70 degree angle


I suspect a broken wire feeding the screen.
Either take it to a computer repair centre or remove the case and check it out for yourself as it may be a plug not making good contact.
Be careful if you do!

Dell ADAMO 13 w/Vista 64 Random power failure...goes dead in 1 second. Battery fully charged. Happened with external power and when on battery. I have latest BIOS v6.0. I ran pre-boot diagnostics...


If the power totally fails (i.e. power is cut off, LEDs turn off, fans stop, ... etc), then this more likely to be because of a short circuit developing in a failing semiconductor component, or a power supply problem.
However, if the laptop is still running & only the display on its LCD is cut off but the laptop itself stays powered on, then your laptop might be experiencing a failing screen inverter board, a failing screen backlight lamp, or a failing LCD screen cable.

TYPICAL INVERTER FAILURE SYMPTOMS

1. When you turn on the laptop, the screen lights up for a short period of time and then goes dark. You still can see an image but it is very dark, almost invisible and definitely not usable. When you restart the laptop, the screen lights up and then goes dark again. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
2. Your laptop turns on but the screen remains dark all the time. You still can see a very dim image outline. The laptop works fine with an external monitor.
3. The laptop screen works fine for hours or even days, but sometimes it goes very dark as it mentioned above. When you restart the laptop, the screen works fine again.

Inverter failure symptoms are very similar to backlight lamp failure symptoms and in most cases you cannot tell which one is causing the problem until you replace either the inverter board or the backlight lamp. From my personal experience, inverter boards fail more often than backlight lamps. If you have to guess, replace the inverter first.

The screen goes blank when it's at certain angles

Screeen comes on --then goes blank


Your inverter circuit is faulty. This controls the lights inside the screen so you can see what is happening on the LCD panel itself.
If you shine a torch into the LCD from the top at an angle you will still see the images on the screen. But with no light inside to project it outwards, it's dark.

A local TV repair shop should be able to do the reprair fairly cheap, but it's best to make a few phone calls and check they will work on an LCD monitor firstly, and secondly a rough quote.
This is a very common fault with LCD monitors.

Hope that helps =)

Computer screen goes blank


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After the scree goes dark, you check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
