My laptop monitor goes out after windows loads.

My laptop(Dell 520 Latitude)monitor will work until Windows loads then goes blank.In bright light I can barely make out an image.In the dark I see nothing at all.Works with an external monitor,but laptop screen remains blank.I have tried changing resolutions and downloading (updating) drivers to no avail.It is 2 years old and has been dropped a time or two from low height(slid off my bed).Works just fine with another monitor,though. tony w2

Seems like a two fold issue here. The blank screen is possibly a faulty laptop display or inverter but the blue screen is caused by powering off the laptop whilst it was doing something and now has damaged files. With your external monitor connected power up and try to reach Safe Mode and let windows find the issue and attempt a repair or press F8 and select repair OS. When you have repaired the OS, shine a bright light at the laptop screen and see if the inverter is not running or a dead screen.

Hi
Can you not try and get another battery from work to see if it remedies the issue. It seems like the screen doesn't get enough power when not plugged in.

Monitor goes blank


Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.

External display not displaying!


When you are able to view a video clip on the external monitor, We can rule out the issue with the software. Probably you need to check the connections and also the external monitor settings in the display. The reload might have changed the old setup
