My monitor will remain black when notebook is powered up

I turn my computer on and the notebook's monitor remains black.  The power button is lit, but the screen remains black.  I have only owned the notebook for around 40 days

Tried on power only and battery only. No better with either.

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.

All the lights turn on on the hp pavilion dv1000, but the screen remains black. Almost as if there was no power going to the screen. I have tried reseating the RAM and the HD. Problem still remains. ...


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if okay! there is a LCD problem with the laptop screen, causes! bad inverter board, or back light. If both show black! causes are Video Graphics Card that is part of the motherboard.

The laptop needed charging. After charging, when the power button was pushed, the screen remained black. The power button is lit. What is the problem?


Sometimes when you reset the computer, that happens. disconnect the AC and count to 10. Plug back in. If that doesn't work...turn on from the power and that should automatically reset the screen.

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

Monitor Turns off


Have you turned off the hibernation?, that would be your first priority. Check the settings again to make certain in the Power configuation has been set to never for all settings for both power abd battery for the time being use them and then try again?
