Hi there, any hearable sound when you press power button on your laptop? For exam: long beeps. I suggest you remove the RAM clean it properly and fix it again. Power on and see, there is any change or not. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Maybe a video output problem. but it may also be a virus that destroys the bios (if it is flasheable). i both cases you should claim assistance from the warranty provider or call the technical support. it cacn also be a loosen cable, if you're out of warranty, try opening your laptop and check the cables.also one of the causes can be a problem with the processor.

It went black but the power is still on


Computer Crash
One of the more complicated reasons why laptop screen goes black is a crash. This could occur for a variety of reasons and is often very difficult to fix. You will have to take the machine to a computer repair shop, and they will open up the laptop there to find the cause. Needless to say, this could set you back by a few hundred dollars as well. The crash could be caused by overheating, or maybe even a loose power supply cable. One solution for you is to play an audio file if the laptop screen goes black. If it does not play at all then something is wrong with the entire system, but if the audio file plays then it is just the laptop screen that is troubled.

Virus
There are a few computer viruses that can cause this problem, but most antivirus programs can effectively deal with such a virus. Update your antivirus software regularly and make sure you download all possible firmwares, and this sort of virus will be successfully thwarted. If your machine is infected with such a virus then your video drivers will most certainly be affected, and even your video card could get contaminated. All this results in your computer screen going black, and in some instances, your laptop screen may even go blue.

Drivers and Programs
The video drivers are crucial for making the computer monitor function properly. On some occasions though, these programs can stop functioning due to some reason. If your laptop screen goes black after startup on a consistent basis, then maybe it is your video drivers that are malfunctioning. To avoid this situation, you should constantly upgrade your video drivers, and should also refrain from using pirated video drivers. Spend those extra bucks on getting licensed drivers, and you will save a lot of unnecessary expenditure in the future. Read more on how to upgrade laptop video card.

The screen will not come on when the computer comes on on my dell xps notebook. The laptop comes on but the screen stays black when turned on.


I had a similar problem with a one year old Dell laptop, and it turned out that the screen was OK on battery power, but when you plugged it in to the AC charger the screen went very dark. It turned out to be the LCD backlight inverter, which I purchased from a fellow in Florida for about $16 and installed by following the instructions at http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-replace-lcd-screen-video-cable-inverter-on-dell-laptops/ . Hope this helps you out a bit...

It wont power on. The power light comes on but


Try these troubleshooting tips, they may help.

Power is on, but nobody is home….

This is a common problem I see a lot and there can be multiple problems here. First off, if you have lost the backlight on the LCD, you might not be able to see what is on the screen….LCD makers are making the panels very dark and if the light has failed it is very difficult to see what may be on the screen. Try shining a flashlight on the screen near the bottom and see if you can make out anything on it.
If not, attach the laptop to another monitor using the video output, you may have to toggle through the video outputs on the laptop by using the Fn key + one of the “F” keys….sometimes it is F4. If you see your desktop on the external monitor than your screen may have died but your video card is still good. In this case, change out the screen and inverter.
If you still can’t manage to see a display, then the other issues are a virus or malware that has changed the resolution to one the video card cannot process, in which case, the hard drive would have to be removed, attached to another computer and scanned to remove the bugs.
The video processor or video card has failed on the motherboard. If the computer has not been cleaned and has run hot, the processor can suffer significant damage that can result in this condition.
Work on simple first, until you get to complicated. In the end, worst case scenario is the main board has to be replaced.

Screen blacking out


Your video out is set to 'BOTH" LCD and CRT and BOTH" aren't there so Press Fn and one of the top row of keys (F1-F12) and one of them has a pair of monitor icons on it and will switch you to LCD, CRT or BOTH. Press 1x or 2x and your LCD will come back.

Laptop is running but screen constant black


it seems the sudden loss of power fried the screen...or it could be the video card that might have downed.  always try to use keyboard combos like crtrl+alt+del or alt F4 before resorting to such violent measures :(

Blank screen


Hi!
A simple test is to connect another working monitor, to figure out if the problem is at cable connection or at graphics card 's output, and replace properly.
good luck!

My PS3 turns on to green light but nothing comes on screen


After the system boots up, hold your finger down on the metal spot where you normally turn it on. it'll completely reset all settings & hopefully set to the proper video output.
