There is a switch on the top of the laptop that "detects" whether or not the laptop is open. This effectively shuts off the screen when the laptop is closed. Look for a "bump" on the screen face that corresponds to a depression in the laptop. This should be the "switch" mechanism. If the actual switch in the laptop body is stuck, you could see the symptom you describe.

Hi There, When I turn on my emachines D620 lab top the screen does not come on. It seems that the lab top is booting correctly but no screen. Can you help with this problem?


I would like to understand if the screen atleast flicker when the system is turned on. Is the screen power led lit on or flickering. In case you have no signal on the screen or no blinking also, you may have to get the lap for a HW repair as it could be a lap monitor HS issue. Else it should show atleast the initial screen while boot up as the screen would be working with the basic Bios Instructions which doesnt have any driver or complicated OS Code to run the screen. So ideally it should work at the initial stage of Bios to confirm that the screen has no hardware issue. Good Luck.

Ive got the screen hooked up to my lap top everything looks great but when i play a movie the screen flickers


Screens will flicker during movies if the monitor settings or drivers are incorrect.

Check to make sure that the drivers for that model monitor are installed and up to date.

Go into control panel>display>settings>advanced>Monitor
and try changing the screen refresh rate (Hertz). You can also adjust the resolution from the settings screen as well.

My screen on my laptop flickers sometimes so bad you can't use it and my cursor goes crazy and i have to shut down for a while . When it flicker it kind of acts when a cell phone or something is too close...


Hello...
I had the same problem before (actually, twice) and it was the LCD - 'twas broken. So I returned it to the company and they replaced it (twice). Thanks that it was still covered by its warranty, I didn't pay even a single cent. You really can't use it well if the screen flickers but if you can not return it right now (hope it's covered by warranty), you just adjust the light of the screen by pressing FN and F9 (for light). That way, you can use it but expect that it will turn white afterwards and so you can't see the cursor again. It's only your broken LCD that needs to be replaced. Hope this helps... If you've got more questions, just feel free to ask more questions here, thanks! tc :)

Please help me agian


So, if your motherboard is turning on and the fan comes on than for now you can check to see if your back light turns on for your lcd panel by going to a dark place and turn ont he laptop there. Than check if you see a faint light that stays on or a flicker. If you see a faint light or the display is dim than it is the inverter on the lcd panel otherwise you may need to replace the video card which can be integrated onto the motherboard and may require a new motherboard. All depends on the model you have.
