    it only displays a picture on an external when there is a picture on the internal lcd and the picture is perfect for the time its on for ,could the problem be because of the ram as when it doesnt turn on i changed the ram around it power up with a display,so is it worth getting some more ram to see if that works?

This type of laptop has problems with its video chip. We have a couple of these and they all have to go to support and always the solution has been the change of the motherboard

Try using the function keys (FN + number) to try the switch forom an internal screen to an external and see if that makes a difference to the picture.

Also when you turn the computer on do you hear any system beeps (apart from the single beep at startup)?

If an external monitor is plugged in an the display is ok then the problem is probably an inverter board or bad/loose flex cable to the lcd screen.

If the external display is distorted then the problem is the video adapter on the laptop.

    It could be either a shadow ram for video problem or the video card on the mother board. I am not familiar with the life book. I had a similar problem on a dell and after I reseated the display adapter to the mother board and insured a proper ground there was no further problem. I believe the video adapter is on the mother board. since the external only works when internal is working this would indicate adapter problem. If the bios can be entered check the amount of video ram has been allocated. Limit it to lowest setting and see if this helps.

I have a fujitsu siemens lifebook E7010 laptop and the problem is this : When I switch on power the system goes ON but with a black screen and the small LCD is showing the start logos CD player is working...


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,

1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter

2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds

3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.

4. Check if you will see any difference.

5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.

If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

3 beeps is generally a video card problem. Unsure if your laptop has separate video or if it is imbedded on the board, first make sure ram is fully seated in socket
