Question about Samsung X15 Notebook

2 Answers

Freezing then blank screen

My X15 has worked fine until recently when I had it on and then the screen suddenly was distorted and then it went blank. Now when I turn it on sometimes it remains a blank screen, sometimes it starts up and the screen is all distorted and then sometimes it starts up normally, sometimes through the logon screen and then the screen distorts and or goes blank.
No matter how it starts in the end it finishes with the blank black screen.
It always continues to be on and it seems the laptop is still working as on some occasions I am able to shut it down using the windows keys.

Re: Freezing then blank screen

Sounds like there is something fluky with your LCD. How old is the laptop? I had a system like that and if I pinched the plastic areas on the left and right side of the monitor the screen would come back on. Also, I had a laptop that I had to close almost all the way and open again to get the screen to kick on. Definitely sounds like a connection to your screen, or the screen itself.

My HP laptop was working fine, and then suddenly the screen went blank. When I reboot, the power light stays on and you can hear the hard drive spinning, but the screen stays blank.


unhook all usb cables and power cable, take out battery. Hold down Power button for 60 seconds, which will get rid of all static electricity. Plug in all cables again and check.

If still facing problem there will be some connection issue inside the lap.
Please let me know whether this works or not.

Blank screen. Won't turn on.

You could have an overheating problem. The CPU shutsdown when it overheats and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. Check the CPU fan and heatsink assembly. The fan may have stopped spinning or spins slowly and the heatsink is clogged with dust.
Remove the dust and replace the fan if it is faulty.

Screen blank. only pointer shows

It sounds like damaged OS or registry. You need to restore the operating system. Try F8 at reboot and select "Safe Mode".

A really dim display like you're describing is most likely a backlight problem.  If your inverter went bad you wouldn't have any display at all.  you need to get your backlight changed.
