I can't get my screen to come up. The machine is

I can't get my screen to come up. The machine is on, but I can't see anything. The monitor works. I'm wondering if I've locked something. There is a light on the lock key that has a '9' on it. Usually the WIFI light is on instead. Any ideas?

The computer has a pink screen and wont do anything


Pink screen is usually either
Broken video cable to the monitor
Broken video card
Broken monitor

Try the machine with a different monitor cable and a different monitor. What happens?

In terms of troubleshooting can you provide more detail
What specifcally happens when you boot the machine up. Does it have a black screen that has typing on it which then changes to pink later? Do you see any writing at all while it is booting?
Does the hard drive make the usual noises during the startup?

Try using a different monitor or use that monitor on a different computer to see if the monitor is bad. It shouldn't have anything to do with your CMOS battery. I'd check to make sure the monitor itself is good before I go tearing my computer apart. Let me know how it goes and maybe we can get it figured out.

When I connect the lcd to my laptop, the lad shows


hi atuire,

try hooking up the lcd screen toanother computer and if it shows the same double screen again then there is aomething wrong with your lcd monitor,
you may want to use another monitor with your laptop to ensure the problem is not on the laptop's side.

if issue stays same with another monitor, then just right-click onto desktop background, goto properties and have a look whether you have enabled the shared monitor feature
(meaning that u can use two screens with just one graphics card parallel, to work on a 'wider' range of sight.
Therefore your machine's graphics card sually must be equipped with both: a standard vga out and a HDMI-out as well.)

if your machine ddoes not have these capabilities but still the monitor sharing is turned on from the software side, this might cause the problem. To disable simply change the graphics card's
propertiers as descried above.

Good luck

Screen lites up but no display


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not 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. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

I think you have loose cabling somewhere. Try to unplug (and untangle) the video cables and then plug them all back together firmly. If this does not work and you know your machine is booting up properly, you might have damaged the monitor somehow accidentally.
