My FUJITSU SIEMENS AMILO PA 1538 screen comes black ? HELP


Try connecting the laptop to an external monitor and see if all is working Ok with that, if it is, then you may need to get the laptop display serviced - if it does the same on the external display, then try booting the laptop from a CD or DVD such as an OS install CD (Windows or Linux) or a boot utility CD such as Hiren's Boot CD - this will allow you to test whether the problem lays with your installed operating system or with the hardware. . . .
Note: do not go any further than the initial displays if using an OS install CD unless you are using a Linux Live boot CD which will not destroy your installed operating system. . . .See http://www.hirensbootcd.org/ to download a copy of Hiren's Boot CD to burn to a CD. . . .See http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download to download a copy of a Ubuntu (Linux) Live CD.

Acer aspire one running ubuntu 10.4, does a good job, using 1gb ram. But screen periodically greys out to black and white and freezes for a short period of time - less than one min. Ideas on what is going...


With Ubuntu 10.4, 1GB will run it, but sometimes it will need a bit more, so consider putting in another 1GB stick. With 2GB it's almost flawless.

Other than that... the reason it seems that the screen greys out is because the OS is not responding well to the driver for the video in the laptop. I would look up the drivers for it, and see if there is an updated version that Ubuntu might take.

In my opinion, it might be a combination of the two things I stated above. The blacking out might occur due to the driver, but the length of time might be affected by the RAM.

it sounds like a mother board or graphic card problem
get a proper diagnosis from a computer repair shop but technology is improving every day and laptops are getting lighter and faster so after getting the diagnosis and quote a replacement may be the option to consider

I turned the my toshiba M50 last night. the next morning i was trying to turn it on, but it was just a black screen. i can hear the sound that it actually turned on but the screen is just black and no any...


If you see a dim image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Linux black screen


hello!

if its below 384mb ram you must use the alternate installer: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#alternate

You should also take out any extra pci cards thats not absolutley needed for the pc to be running. And put them back in when installation is finished.
