When i turn the notebook on i can see nothing blank black screen


Sounds like one of two issues,

1. You have the internal display turned off. When you turn the laptop on you should hear a single beep. Do you see the Sony Logo during bootup? Have you tried to turn the display back on? Try pressing the Fn+F7, or Fn+F8, key combination. There are only three modes and these key combinations allow you to cycle through these modes. Either the Primary Screen is on, or the External Screen is on, or both are on.

2. You may have a bad video card or the screen is dead. When you power up the laptop, can you see a glow, but the screen is black? Can you see the Bootup Screen with the Sony Logo, but barely? Have you tried to connect an external monitor to the laptop to see if the video card is working? If you get video to the external monitor, the video card is working. If you don't, then the video card may be bad. If you are getting video on the external monitor, try using the key combinations listed above and try to cycle through your Internal/External display modes.If nothing shows up on the laptop display then the LCD screen may be bad. It could be the back light. Those are internal to the LCD. That means you will have to replace the entire LCD display on the laptop.

Hope that helps.

Display is all garbled on bootup, cannot read image.


Test if it's your graphics chip by connecting a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port,reboot the laptop, and look to see if same thing happens on the external monitor.. If it does, then you have a failing gpu/graphics chip.

I have a toshiba satellite p305d-s8828 laptop and have 19dc @ plug going into main board and 19dc on motherboard. Is the motherboard fired? And no power on computer.


Since you have measured the voltage on the motherboard I must presume you are saying there is no power "indicator light" on computer. If this is not the case please clarify. If the light is absent please test the battery as these laptops are not designed to work without a battery or with a dead battery. Operating without a battery can spike the motherboard or other components and cause failure due to overvoltage. If you do have a power indicator light then next observe whether the bootup is proceeding with a beep after the POST (power on self test) and whether you can hear the movement of the hard disk drive... possibly indicating failed LCD display or display drivers/setup. Press F8 after the POST beep to get to safe mode display drivers.

How to fix a back screen on a dell laptop


Press F8 at boot up to get a menu with various options. Select Safe Mode and boot. Once booted, go to display settings and set your monitor right. If that does not work, then F8 at bootup and select the options which says "Last good Bootup". that should do away the new driver you loaded.

My laptop wont bootup display is "Operating System not found


If you have 2 RAM sticks, try removing one at a time and booting, if you have only one, then make sure it;s seated properly! also make sure everything else is seated properly, ie/ VGA card, NIC, Sound card etc...
Also before you reboot, reset ALL your Bios settings back to default, but your bootup option should be hard drive first boot. Hope this helps let us know the outcome please
