Did you unplug the 'tower', or did you remove the hard drive from your computer? In either case, the monitor would not be affected. I suggest plugging everything back in where it was, start from scratch, and see if your monitor works then.

Samsung sens v20 laptop power on but no display

Any sound? Does the HDD led blink during start-up? Can you hook it up to a external display? If so, what is on the screen?

I have come across this issue before. I believe it was with a dell or Gateway laptop. The screen had been stepped on. I wanted to check the computer out before I replaced the screen. I connected an external desktop monitor. It worked fine. You just have to hope that the dual monitor feature is enabled. There's no way to do it without a monitor or active screen. I hope that helps.

Blue screen on Laptop

I'm not going to state this is going to cure your problem, but here are some things you may wish to try;

1.Remove the AC adapter if plugged in. Remove the Battery.
Open the Memory Compartment door, and remove it.
Take the ram memory module, (Stick), out. If you have more than one, remove them both.
Now reinstall them/it. Reinstall the Memory Compartment door.

2.Remove the Harddrive Compartment door. Make sure the harddrive is plugged in tight. If you look, there is a rectangular shaped part on one side, in this compartment, that the harddrive plugs into.
This is a connector. (Actual name is Interface)

Push the back, (Opposite side of the connector), of the harddrive, to assure that it is fully seated in the connector.
Reinstall the Harddrive Compartment door.

Reinstall the Battery. Plug the AC adapter back into the laptop. Plug the AC adapter, (Charger), into the surge protector.

(Advise always unplug the AC adapter from the surge protector first, then from the laptop. If you do not, there is a chance of a voltage spike)

WAIT 1 minute, then turn on the laptop.

The Ram Memory can become unseated very easily.
The Harddrive has a metal frame around it, and the frame is attached to the main body of the laptop, with a scre-w, or scre-ws.
Still may be a chance, that the harddrive can become partially unplugged from it's connector.

The Samsung V20 Notebook doesn't have screen Output after Start. One button clip of the keyboard button --> is missing. Is there a dependance between keyboard function and screen?

no, but if it got knocked hard enough to mess up the keyboard there is a good chance that something has happened to either the gpu or the screen itself as well.

Hi, i have a samsung v20 laptop.2 questions...

I have a Samsung V20 for many years and I know it doesn't support a wireless connection built in. But if you connect a USB like myself you can have access to the internet wirelessly. The flikering on the screen are you sure you haven't got a screen saver switched on, you may have it set to a clear black screen and like you say have to tap the keyboard and it comes back to life. It may also have hibernation switched on which will automatically turn off the screen have so many minutes you can change all these setting by right clicking on the desktop and selecting properties and under the screen saver tab there will be a power btton you should see hibernation and other tabs across the top these can be altered to whatever you want.

Hope this of use.
