Re: Laptop HP Compaq nx9420 Screen goes Blank

From the Symptom you described, it seems like the thin video cable's connector is loose and is barely connected to the video adapter on the motherboard. You won't be able to tell until you remove the Keyboard and/or the Palmrest to check it. Also, there is a slim possibility that the Laptop has knocked something loose and is going into sleep mode. Normally, a Laptop user can configure it to go into Sleep mode or 'Hibernate'. These settings can be found in the Control Panel under 'Power Settings'.

My compaq presario cq60 laptop screen goes blank intermittantly. I can not get the screen to come back on without forcing a shutdown.

Get some canned air and blow out all the dust you can.
Get a laptop cooler to take heat away from the bottom of the laptop.
Take it to a repair shop

Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.


Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.

Good luck.

BLANK SCREEN ON MY hp compaq nx9420. my laptop was working fine and then when restarted I got a blank screen. The power LED and cahrging LED both light up but screen remains blank. have changed the video...

Did it display any video at all with boot options or HP logo? Any POST test or beeps after you started the laptop?
Try removing the power ac adapter and battery. then only boot it up with just the AC adapter (no battery).
Good Luck, JAJ

Compaq monitor blank screen

If its a blank screen all the time that never shows anything not even a screen at startup then it sounds like the internal cable from your monitor to the motherboard of the laptop is unplugged or possibly broken. You need to remove the keyboard from the laptop to check this.

I recommend bringing the laptop to a professional if you have no experience with opening laptops.

Blank screen


Its inverter or mother board problem power which passes to backlight is cutting off because of over heart (over heart of some IC).
