Well, your computer may have gone into standby mode. Type hitting the spacebar or the power/reset key. Your laptop may have a speical "Standby" key. It is possible your LCD display is broken or the wiring has become unattached.

Samsung LNT4665F screen goes black

due to the moisture on the board, the board short tracks some where and turns the screen black and goes off to avoid further damage.again it will work for sometime and will again go black due to short tracking.the solution for this is to dry your board completely with a hot air dryer and cover the tv to avoid the gathering of the moisture causing the same problem again.nothing to worry it happens most of the time when the humidity is high.dont even think of replacing anything your unit is completely fine and behaving normally.

pls do rate the solution

I have an e-machine and when I turn it on all it does is blow air. It won't show up on the screen, the fan just keeps blowing! Any ideas?

Check the color of the power light on the monitor (screen). If it is orange, that means you're getting no signal from the CPU to the monitor. If that's the case, check the signal cable going from the CPU to the monitor to make sure it hasn't been disconnected.

Normally that means needs to be cleaned. The air filter needs to be cleaned, and if you have a air compressor, blow it out and clean it as good as you can. Also of unit comes out easily, you can also hose it out, and let it dry completely with help of using air compressor to blow out excess water, then run on fan only to help dry, then once completely dry, then turn to cold.But bottom line here it is most likely dirty.I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike from fixya.

Blows cold but shuts down no freeze up

Check the capacitor. It should be a dual capacitor , runs both compressor and fan. This sounds like your problem only because both the compressor and the fan go out together. Good Luck Hope I helped

Screen not responding

can you hear any boot sounds?
(fan noise, harddisk rattling)
do the LEDs work (battery and charger , Hdd, CD/DVD-ROM-drive,WLAN)?
this would indicate it still boots up, but screen might be broke.

u lucky?
- remove battery pack! retry booting

if not, hook it up to another external monitor
(use vga-jack in the back of it)
reboot, wait for signal

- check if the the fan is jammed
(due to sand???)
this might cause overheat problem -
use compressed air to blow/clean the fan inlet

still no luck? it simply may be broke...

Toshiba Satellite Goes completley off! Black screen, NO POWER!

This problem is likely caused by overheating. The CPU reaches a temp to high and shuts the system down. When you try to turn it on the system is still to hot and it will not let the computer power on. You can try blowing out the fans and heat sink with an air compressor or can of compressed air. If this does not help the problem you may need to have thermal compound reapplied. If that does not fix it it will need a new heatsink/fan/

That would be normal, as the variable speed fan comes on only when the computer is under load.

What is not normal is that the fan is not coming on when the computer overheats.Or that the fan is not cooling enough when computer is overheating.

Monitor computer temperature using a software, check if Fan is coming up when temperature gets critical.

If fan comes up but does not cool enough, then replace the fan, it is not efficient anymore because of a bad bearing or dust. ~Also ensure that fan is well mounted, if fan has poor contact with CPU surface , cooling will be poor.

If fan does not come up, and critical temp is not detected, then the sensor on motherboard is bad, this is very uncommon. When this happens the problem is usually related to system or power settiings , rather than overheating.

If fan does not come up and temp is critical, then fan is faulty, replace it.

There are also more than one fan on many laptops, check that one of the fans (CPU fan, video fan) is not completely ded, and therefore cause for the problem.

By using the software below you can also find out if the problem is really overheating. If temperature results within normal range, then usually it is not overheating.In that case test systtem and check power saving settings.

Here is the software to control your fan and temp. sensor state:
