Laptop Screen No Showing any Light But Computer Boots and passes

Used the laptop 12/5/2010 about 3:30pm (browsing the Internet).

Shut off for about two hours.

Return and booted.

I discovered that the lighting for the screen isn’t what should be.

Although the screen was dark I used my pass word and my account opened up on the screen but no lighting to reflect it.

I use a very bright light and was able to see my programs etc on through the dark screen but no lighting.

I used fn > but nothing happens.

I used the external monitor and I saw all my programs clearly.

I need a solution to this problem please.

Nothing will works.

Replace the backlight inverter of your screen.
There is no way you can do it yourself if you don't have the knowledge and the right tools for opening the backcover of your laptop..It is way too risky to do that not to mention the availability of parts (with same value) that you will be replacing.

My suggestion is to let your laptop handle by a certified technician..if there is still warranty good for you..

    Try a different power supply. This worked on my 7720G

    Try a different power supply. I had a similar problem with my Acer 7720G and found that the power supply was off a different model. Put the 7720G power supply on and problem disappeared.

    Try a different power supply. My Acer 7720G had the same issue and I found I had the wrong charger. Put the right one on and the problem disappeared.

My acer laptop does not display but it runs.what is the problem?


There are many things we can try to find out why this is. To start, When the computer boots, Do you hear the windows chime? this will indicate the laptop boots. otherwise we could be looking at other hardware.

With the laptop turned on, if you hold a flashlight to the LCD you may be able to see faint images. This would indicate an issue with the LCD or the Inverter located in the laptop and you should have it serviced by a professional to repair such items.

Also while booting the laptop we want to watch all the lights on the laptop. Occasionally when a hardware item fails we identify it with a bios Beep code. In laptops this is a flashing light that will blink either by the AC plug, Right under the LCD, or the front of the laptop.

When we start the laptop does the fan spin up very hard and then slow down again? do we hear a beep shortly after? This indicates what we call "A post" it means your processor, Video, and Ram all passed intitial tests to start your computer. If there is no beep dont panic as not all laptops do this. The fan however, if it does not slow down will indicate a hardware issue. This typically can be CPU, RAM, or Motherbord.
When your computer boots, does the screen stay completely black or does it boot past a splash screen and go to a flashing curser? This could indicate a hard drive issue. Usually repairable unless we hear clicking from somewhere in the device.

The last thing I would suggest trying is if you have a regular computer with a regular monitor, you can plug the monitor into the side of your laptop to see if the screen comes up on it. There may be a keyboard shortcut you have to press and if you let me know what model Acer laptop I may be able to help you with that as well.

Good Luck!

Samsung laptop purple light

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Why is my Gateway 4028GZ screen black

The display on this laptop is backlit. What that means, in a nutshell, is that the image on the display prevents the output from a constant light source (the back light) from showing through, thus giving a usable image on the screen. From your description, the backlight is no longer operating. This can be an issue with the LCD display panel, the backlight power module, our (less likely) a power trace on the motherboard. Repair would likely cost as much or more than replacing with a used laptop and just transferring your hard drive. If you choose to replace and swap hard drives make certain that the interface on the new laptop is the same as your Gateway's.

Hi I closed my laptop to put into hibernation mode and then noticed 2 days later that the power light was stuck on and not in hibernation. Upon opening the screen back up nothing happened. No lights, no...

You can try this: Shut the computer down and unplug the power cord from the computer. Remove the battery, then push and hold the power button and sing happy birthday to it. Or wait 15 seconds. Then plug the power cord back and try turning the system on. After it boots up, providing this fixes the problem, you may then replace the battery.

Hope this helps!

On my PDA MC70 it is showing WI-FI "unavailable"

This can get kind of complicated, and your wireless carrier may block this depending on the data plan. It's also different for the MC7095 (CDMA) and MC7094 (GSM/GPRS) models. You may also want to see if your device BSP release is up-to-date.

Here is some basic info for the MC7095 (Sprint):

Device was not connected to network to start.
Went to Start, Programs, Internet Sharing, tapped Connect, showed Status: Check USB connection. Internet Sharing drivers were installed on laptop computer, then device displayed Internet Sharing Status "Connected". We were able to browse the web on the laptop computer. Closed out of Internet Sharing (tap X on upper right hand corner). On device, tapped Start, Internet Explorer, attempted to browse to a webpage. Able to browse on both laptop computer and MC7095 device.

Note: Attempted to Disconnect the Internet Sharing session, unable to. The device does not appear to respond to the "Disconnect" option on bottom left of screen. When tapping "Disconnect" the option light up as if being tapped however the device itself shows no other changes and Status still displays :Connected.
***FYI*** In testing with a different MC7095 (BSP33) we experienced the same issues with not being able to "Disconnect" the Internet Sharing session.

Looks like when you reset the router/mdm you have los all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.

Bridge the modem first .
1. In your web browser browse to »<your mdoms deault gateway> This address will be found in your manual of your modem
2,Depending on your modem make sure you use "Bridged Mode (PPPoE is not used)"

3. Click Save Changes.

4. Then connect the router

5.Configure the router for PPPoE using your ISP uid/pass
6.Configure your wireless using WEP(if applicable)

7.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seg..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
