HP TouchSmart 310-1125f display is black


Hearing fans and hard drive spin up doesn't necessarily mean system is working - just without video. If you heard a POST beep or the Windows Startup sound that would be different - and good. Is there any video on the screen at all, even just a blinking cursor in upper left of display? If not, your problem is probably hardware such as ram or motherboard. If this system has a VGA or HDMI output to connect to another monitor or TV would be a good check, but AIO system usually don't have that option. Other than that, and this is a shot in the dark: Ensure the system is off, disconnect the power plug, and hold the power button in for 30 sec for a power reset. Then plug in system and try powering it up again. If no go, you may have a hardware problem and will need a PC Tech. Hopefully it is just loose ram.

You'll first want to make sure that BIOS would load. Turn the MB on with only the memory chips, video card, and CPU (with fans). You'll need to add/remove individual components to isolate the issue. Make sure that the cases's wires are connected to the correct pins on the MB.

Hi there,

In your situation, you have the possibility of several different problems.

1. Your "Screen Inverter" is failing.
2. Your screen "LCD Panel" is failing
3. The "Video Controller Chip" soldered permanently to your motherboard is failing.

The first step in troubleshooting these problems would be to take your laptop to a friend's house who is using a desktop computer with a separate external monitor. Hook your laptop up to the external monitor and see if it displays normally on that monitor. If it does, you merely need to replace both the Screen Inverter and LCD Panel of your laptop and you'll be fine.

If, however, your laptop will not display on an exterior monitor, it means that your video controller on your motherboard has failed and you'll have to either get a new motherboard installed or consider replacing your laptop.

I'll be rooting for # 1 or 2.

Kind Regards,

Selk

If you are sure the computer is running then connect an external monitor to the laptop. You will have to select the external using your Function keys FN + F7 or F8. If you can now see your machine on the external monitor then you know it's the screen portion of your laptop that is faulty. If this does not work then the sounds you are hereing are probably just the fan and the hard drive spinning. These are not an indication that the computer is working. All in all, I would say that the laptop needs to see a pro.

P4vmm2 doesnt boot,Y?


Hi yansky, When you turn the computer on do you see or hear any of the following: -Does the power LED turn on and if so for how long? -When you turn you power on listen closely for any sounds like hard drives or fans starting up. -Does anything show on your monitor, if yes what exactly? -When turned on do you hear any beeping sounds from the computer? If you do listen for the pattern of long and short beeps and let us know what they are. If you see absolutely nothing you should try testing the socket the computer is plugged into. Fuses blow, power strips die cords develop shorts so unplug the computer and plug in a lamp to verify you?re getting power. If that doesn?t turn up anything let us know the answers to the questions above plus any other observations and we?ll try to help.
