My screen went white, how can I fix this?


Don't freak out!

You just tapped the Display Toggle-Over key.

Hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap ONCE on the F5 key.
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F5 key.

There are at least 3 display options for your laptop, Shivam;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external display
3) External display ONLY

You set it by accident to external display ONLY.

Connectted to big screen monitor, the button Fn and F5 not work. what is the reason?


What is the screen Resolution set to on your current Display?

Try setting your current Display to 1024x768, then try the FN+F5 key
this might work. IF your current Display is set to high the other screen might not show any picture at all.

Screen not working but other monitor work


Your "F"keys are multi function. Look for the one with a picture of a monitor. Press the FN key adt the appropriate F key at the same time. You are probably in remote monitor mode. The F key is usually F5 or F8.

Screen not working


It could be the 'back light' is burned out.
Or
Press Fn and F5 simultaneously to make sure the display
priority is not set for the built-in screen.
Or
Press the 'brightness up' key a few times.

Display problems
Here are some typical display problems and their solutions:
The screen is blank.
Display Auto Off may have gone into effect. Press any key to
activate the screen.
You may have activated the instant password feature by pressing
Fn and F1 simultaneously. If you have registered a password, press
any key, type the password and press Enter. If no password is
registered, press any key. The screen reactivates and allows you to
continue working.
If you are using the built-in screen, make sure the display priority is
not set for an external monitor. To do this, press Fn and F5
simultaneously (once). If this does not correct the problem, press Fn
and F5 simultaneously again to return the display priority to its
previous setting.
HINT: Holding the Fn key and pressing the F5 key several times will
advance you through the display options.
If you are using an external monitor:
❖ Check that the monitor is turned on.
❖ Check that the monitor’s power cord/cable is firmly plugged in.
-- Try adjusting the contrast and brightness controls on the
external monitor
