I"m assuming you mean the picture on the screen. One of your screens backlights has burnt out, or the screen is cracked/damaged in some way. Shine a bright light on it and look closely, if you can see the image faintly, then it's the backlight, they can be changed if you know what you're doing, but theres LOTS of tiny screws. You may want to buddy up with your local geek and offer him something yummy or green to fix it.

Otherwise if it's the screen itself, you can sometimes get your same model laptop off of ebay in 'parts' condition for the screen, or the LCD itself if you open the case, again, making good with your local geek can get this done for you.

An alternative would be to just hook up a regular screen to it, if it has VGA/DVI out, kinda robs it of it's 'laptop' status, but at least you can use it until you can fix it.

How do i fix the bottom half of my laptop screen which is all black


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the bottom half of the laptop screen is black. You may try performing an LCD BIST using the below link:

Also try connecting an external known good monitor and check if that helps.

Thanks and Regards.

Monitor is showing bottob half display and upper half is blackout


Hate to say it, but time for a new monitor... will cost you WAY more to fix than to pop-by a garage sale and grab a new monitor.

(It's not even worth a repair-persons time to do it...)

SyncMaster 932B blinks, then screen goes black


Check all the connections and if they are all right and tight then the monitor is probably shot. The good news is that it can be repaired. It's usually around $50.00 to $80.00 to fix. Good luck!

Left half of monitor just displays as black or with stripes


Something in your system is just plain old broken. Try aoher monitor on your PC. If that solves the problem, the monitor was broken. If it doesn't, the graphics crd doesn't work anymore. Either way, the broken part will need replacement, because computer components are way to omplicated to fix if they break like that. It could just be one out of a couple of billion connections that has burnt through. I'm sorry, Yannick.

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!

Screen turned black


your monitor got a hardware problem:
1) the LVDS controler board out of work, only change or repair it could be fixed.
2) if you can see some show like smaller signal detect windows in the centre of screen a very short time (bright flashing one time), this is inverter board damaged or worn lamps, thay all need repair or replace
hope give you some idea. please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks!
