the fault is either from the screen, screen bulb or screen inverter. Once of this three is defective and needs replacement.

if you cannot do the replacement yourself, get in touch with a repairman that will help your out.

To confirm this, connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if there will be any display. if there is a display, then one of the above three mentioned is the cause of the problem.

Good luck.

Why my computer screen black no sound when I turn on or pictures lights for charger work and lights on Asus laptop1000ha

Sounds like your laptop is not powering up. I'm aware your charger led light lights up. How you described your laptop symptoms, it's not booting up, the screen is not displaying nor any sound. You may have a bad battery or your charger.

Laptop on but screen black

Have you cleaned the fan, vents, heatsink recently? Does the Laptop overheat? Is the Laptop booting? Fan spins? Sound? LED's blink? I can tell much from the video. In a bright light can you see a "ghost image" of the desktop? Do you feel comfortable opening the Laptop? If so, there are a few things you can check.

One thing that you can do is going to safe mode by pressing F8 on initial boot. Once you choose safe mode you can then opt to choose system restore which will revert your system to a previous state ( a date ) that your windows booted and functioned properly. Or you can run your antivirus in safe mode and see if there are malicious viruses that is preventing your system to boot properly.

Hi mohammad - seems the LCD of the laptop is gone bad . as u said u gets the light on the laptop and also sound and then it goes dark - shows possibly the LCD gone bad .
Give a try with this if you have a computer in your home - on the back of the monitor you will find a VGA cable (probably with a blue color end which goes to cpu ) unplug it from cpu and plug it in the laptop (side of laptop you will find a same input VGA slot blue color ) and boot your laptop after turning on both (monitor and laptop) if you find the screen on the monitor then it will be sure that your laptop LCD has gone bad .
On your laptop if you are not able to find the boot screen also that refers to LCD brokerage -anyway try the above you will be sure ..

Dell Inspiron 1545. When booting to vista the screen goes black. When booting to safe mode the screen works normally.

Please reinstall the Video Driver and check if the same issue persists. If the issue started within last 90 days, you can try the System Restore

When i turn on my laptop toshiba m305 i heard 3 bip and all the light turn on but my screen is black simetimes when i don't heard the beeps the laptop turn on like nothing wrong and i work properly


You have a problem with system memory. This can be caused by dust or just basically the memory is not seated correctly.

Check and make sure the memory is seated correctly by turning the laptop off, remove the battery and the power cord and then turn the laptop upsude down. You should see a couple of panels that will unscrew. Unscrew these panels and look for a module like this >>>>>> There could be 2 of these.

Take them out and clean the contacts and the slots and then re-seat them/it.
Replace all the covers etc and see if the laptop boots up normally. If you still get an intermitent problem you maybe looking at replacements modules.

Laptop has a black screen no picture.

It sounds like the back-light in your laptop's LCD screen has died. If you turn the laptop on, and hold the screen up to the light, you may be able to see the operating system and windows, but since the screen isn't emitting any light, it appears to be off or all black. If this is the case, you'll need to either replace the back-light, have the laptop repaired, or replace the whole thing. There's no easy fix for a dead back-light.

Blank screen

Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

Insert your Windows installation disk and select Repair Windows rather than Install. Hopefully it will allow you to boot properly.

LCD Problems HP Pavilion DV2000

It sounds like your backlight in the LCD screen has died. However your system should work with an external monitor. When you connected up the monitor to the VGA connector did you change the settings on the system to output to the VGA output ?
Try connecting the monitor before the computer is turned on - then once booted hold the Fn key and press F7. Then pause then press Fn and F7 again to see if you can get the external screen to show your screen. It sounds like a dead back light though.
