Re: Screen turns off

You have a bad inverter board, this feeds hi-voltage to the lamps that create the display. common for LCD screens
or the back light lamp.

hope this helps

I have a Dell inspiron 5100. When I try to turn it on, it just stays blank. It shows the Dell and Windows logos, but the screen where I'm supposed to choose my user account doesn't appear.

Are there any error messages displayed? Does the laptop switch off, or does it still remain on? (are lights etc. on?). Also, have you connected to an external monitor recently? I suggest attempting to connect to a monitor or TV using the S-Video or VGA connectors on your laptop, this should get the login screen to show up.

When I unplug my Toshiba Tecra 8200 with windows XP, the screen becomes dark, but not too dark. Please help!

Check your power setting preferences - although I am not familiar with your computer, some laptops reduce power to the processor and screen when unplugged to save battery power. You can normally change the settings so that it runs normally whether plugged in or on battery (although of course the battery will then not last as long)

Toshiba A105 S2719 screen problem

Is this behavior irrespective of power condition of the laptop, ie both ac and battery?
Please see bios bulletins for your system here. Sometimes a bios update can correct this kind of problem...
However, also note this article.
In the probable event that none of that works, it's probably your inverter or backlight (EL) panel, both of which can be replaced. The white lines are not a good sign. See other thread discussions of same here and here.
Google "diagnose laptop monitor failure" for more, or see this repair guide.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

The projector doesn't show what is on my screen

your projector may be on the 2nd screen or presentation mode of your video card. open an application and drag the application window off your screen (try both sides) and see if it will appear on the projector.

change your flexible wire (vga) connected from board to the screen, also change your module, the module is at the rear of the screen.
