Re: laptop 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.

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.
Hope that helps.

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!

Blank (dark) screen

If you can still see a faint image on the screen, then its the inverter coil or the inverter itself which has gone bad or maybe even worked itself loose causing a bad connection.
Either way you will have to take it to PC repair shop to be looked at.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Screen goes blank

My best guess is that it's the screen or the screen sensor try playing with the angle of the screen. If it displays at a particular angle its the sensor if not its the screen, or motherboard. Either way if you pay Dell to fix it, it's like buying a new laptop.

Screen on Toshiba M35x S149 Laptop blank/flickers

this can be caused by many reasons, here are some that comes to my mind: 1. bad connection between computer and screen, usually an easy one, but since its a laptop, you cannot change cable, so you will have to take it to the lab. anyway, if it is the problem, fixing it should be cheap. 2. in order to make sure it is "only" a faulty monitor, connect the laptop with another monitor, I dont know the exact function in this specific model, but as long as it has an video output, it can be done. 3. it is posible that backlight invertor has short circuit and should be replaced. this one can cost up to several hundred dollars, so be prepered. hope this helps.
