The above procedure will work fine for a desktop machine. This is a laptop...Check to see if the softswitch (function key to switch from internal to external monitor) is set wrong.

Screen won't turn on...think I need new it worth it?

Try booting into "safe mode" before you do any repairs on it.

Start your computer and hit F8 every second until the boot menu comes up. When it does select "Start in safe mode". If it starts up and you can see your desktop (it might look a little bloated), then you just need to update your video card driver because it somehow got corrupted.

Black screen at startup

It sounds like the graphics card or on board graphics is causing the issue, as the external monitor is not working either. Hopefully its a graphics card which can be replaced easily, or there is an expansion slot for a graphics card to be added.
One thing you could try is resetting the CMOS by removing the battery from the motherboard and leaving for ten minutes. Replace the battery and try booting.

My computer wont boot. when i press the power button, all the panel lights flash, the CD drive boots, but my screen remains black. Also the volume control buttons stay lit up and the Mute button flashes...

your dell is having RAM problems. if under warranty, please get support to replace the RAM. Encountered this problem before and had the motherboard changed as well although the final was the RAM.

My acer KAV 60 screen is not working. the hard drive boots and it charges but nothing happens on the screen. It just remains black. I did't drop it or spill liquid on and it's only a year old.

In order to check what is really not functioning. Your laptop have a video port for external monitor which is color blue often at the lower back of your lcd screen or at the side. Plug the CRT or LCD monitor to your vga(video graphics adapter) port to check if your laptop is still functioning. If there is a display on your external monitor that means you have to replace your lcd monitor. If there is no display with external monitor check your memory or ram by unplugging your memory then clean it with a hard eraser the memory pin and then put it back again and turn on your computer to test if already functioning. If the above procedure didn't work you have to bring it in a computer repair shop. Have a good day!

How to force external monitor on lap top monitor broken boots on external monitor than switches right to broken monitor tryed f f3 f5 does not work

The issue is the OS boots but is not SET for the external monitor

You can try and use the FN and the monitor key but as a perm thing you cannot do this, just cannot be done its boots on the port for the primary display and that is the way it was built. Now if the F# or F% does not work then the operating system is not set up for the external monitor with the display broken i do not see a solution for this one as a tech,

thanks for the question tho but i want to remain honest and say its not possiable.

please do rate my answer before you leave thanks.

It boots up and I can hear the HD ticking over but the screen remains blacked out

Hi. Connect an external monitor then power on your laptop and see if you get a display on external monitor. If display works on external but not on your internal LCD, you need to replace your LCD. I would suggest to have a qualified technician check your laptop to see if you need to replace the whole LCD assembly or just CCFL or inverter.

Acer Aspire 5100 laptop's screen remains black at start-up

This is probably a hardware issue with the monitor. Just to make sure, uninstall, and reinstall the monitor's driver. If that doesn't fix it, it's a hardware issue.

You will have to either take it to a shop, or contact the manufacturer (your computer should be under warranty if you've had it for less than a year).

My monitor will remain black when notebook is powered up

Black uses much less power. It's a device for automation, so you really should not lavish the watts and attention on it unless it has to perform something truly novel.

If you really want to use the monitor though, you can use the function-key combination used to switch the display between internal and external displays.
