Hello there,  mu first question would be, "how old is the laptop" followed by "did it never dropped?"
after this my first guess is that there is a missing connection.
if not your motherboard is done and you need to change the laptop.

    you don't unless you open it.


    now the thing is this: if it's a decent laptop it should have a port that allows you to connect your laptop to second bigger screen.


    if the bigger screen doesn't work either the it's your motherboard that screwed up. but if this work, then there might be a chance that it's only a connection problem. in order to solve this though, you will have to bring it by a specialist unless you have some electronic expertise.


    I hope I have been helpful at least to identify the problem...


    Cheers!

Cd tray wont open


CD/DVD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD/DVD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD/DVD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD/DVD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

Laptop screen resolution problem and solution


Laptop Screen Resolution Problems and solution
By hamack4real, fixya Contributor I want to do this! What's This? jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

Laptop screen resolution problems can vary for a variety of reasons. The most common types of problems generally involve some sort of hardware or software issue that causes the display to not work correctly. Correcting a laptop screen resolution problem can be done by making changes to hardware or software settings used by the computer.

    Symptoms
  1. There can be many symptoms to a display problem. Symptoms can include a screen that appears dim or one that is totally black. Other symptoms include odd colors or blotches that appear on the display as well as oversized icons on the desktop. Symptoms can also include icons that are the wrong size on the desktop.
  2. Causes
  3. There can be many causes that can result in different issues affecting the display. Common causes include damage or loose parts. Damage can result when the laptop is dropped or has something fall on top if it. Hinges that are loose are going to cause a problem because the display will not stay in an upright position. Other causes include a bad video driver or an improperly set resolution.
  4. Diagnose
  5. A screen resolution problem will need to be diagnosed to determine what actions to take to resolve the problem. Check the laptop for any loose or broken parts that might need to be repaired. Once that is done, run a test of the video display. Use the video display troubleshooter for Windows XP systems, the help and how-to for Windows Vista systems and the troubleshooting guide for Apple computers.
  6. Solutions
  7. Changing the resolution of the display can be done to fix some types of screen resolution problems. Changing the resolution can fix display problems with some programs as well as websites that have embedded video. Refer to the laptop manual for instructions to access the display settings to change the resolution setting. Updating the video driver might also help to resolve some known issues by the vendor.
  8. Brightness
  9. A dim screen can be corrected by adjusting the brightness of the display. Adjusting the brightness can be done on the keyboard as well as from the display properties. Press the FN key on the keyboard and use the right arrow key to increase the brightness of the display. The brightness settings can also be found as an option in the display settings. Keep in mind a laptop will dim the screen to conserve battery

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.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

Display/light problems


sounds like a screen problem since you can use another monitor, I don't think it would be the graphics card...

ACER laptop, CD/DVD not working


Hi there

Thanks for posting your problem on fixya

It means your CD/DVD player is not attached properly. Please restart you laptop and go to bios

To go into Bios -- Press del key as soon as the pc restarts.

You would see a black screen as soon as you del key. Please check on boot priority and check there if you can see your CD/DVD there it means you CD/DVD player installed properly.

Please take you laptop to some hardware shop and if its in warranty period then go to service center

Thanks
Robert
