Why are all the lights on LCD screen on?

How to troubleshoot and fix video problems
Here are some tips and tricks for troubleshooting and fixing laptop video problems. Video issues are very common within portable computers and with the following tips you should be able to detect and eliminate basic laptop video problems.
Laptop LCD screen has a faint image.

Look at the LCD screen very closely and check if you can see a faint image on the screen. It's possible that the LCD lid close switch stuck in the "closed" position and the backlight stays off even when you open the LCD screen or turn on the laptop. The switch turns off the backlight when you close the LCD display to save the laptop battery power. Check the LCD lid close switch. Usually it is a small plastic pin located close to the LCD hinges. Try to tap on the switch a few times to turn on the backlight. If after tapping on the LCD lid close switch the backlight stays on, you fixed the problem.
It is also possible that after tapping on the LCD lid close switch the backlight works fine, you see a normal video on the screen for some time and then the backlight turns itself off again. In this case I would blame the FL inverter board. Try to reseat cables on both end of the FL inverter to make a better contact between the cables and the FL inverter board. If it doesn't help I would try to replace the FL inverter board.
Laptop LCD screen is solid white color.
Most likely it is just a bad connection between the LCD display and the system board. I would try reseating the video cable connector on the back of the LCD screen first and check if it fixes the problem. After that I would try reseating the video cable connector on the system board. I would also try reseating cables if there is no video on the LCD screen at all.
Try to connect the LCD screen to an external monitor. If the external video is fine, you have a problem with the LCD screen or the LCD video cable. You can try to fix the problem by reseating the video cable on the back of the LCD and on the system board.
If you see the same garbled video output on the external monitor most likely it is not the LCD screen problem. In this case the system board (with onboard video) is bad or the video card is bad.

I have a laptop with Swiss French keyboard. Today I have installed windows 7 in English. I need to find the " undescore " because my email address separates my firstname and my lastname with underscore...

Alt 8 is the underscore on the Swiss French keyboard, but I would think if you loaded Windows 7 English it would use the English layout which is "shift" and the key to the right of "0". Worst case, you can use the On-Screen Keyboard which is under Control Panel> Ease of Access Center> "Start On-Screen Keyboard". Once you have it open, right click on it on the "Task bar" and pin it to the task bar for easy future access.

Unbend a paper clip.
  1. Look very closely at the area around the CD/DVD drive door until you find a really small hole - it almost looks like an accident (probably just below the door).
  2. 3
    Insert the paper clip in the hole (don't be afraid).
  3. 4
    Push the paper clip gently to press the spring-loaded latch.
  4. 5
    Your CD/DVD tray should open right up.

LCD Screen

If it's a spring loaded type latch mechanism, It may be as simple as a spring. Carefully remove the bezel and take a look.

I have a everex laptop and its running vista premuim...the fan comes on and it seems to load but nothing shows on the screen any suggestions on how to fix this problem

Depending on your laptop some have a small platic pin that stick up just in front of the screen, if this pin is not coming up your screen will stay off.

The display on my acer extensa 5420-5687 will go black from time to time. All i have to do is close the cover and open it up and the display will be back on again. I may have to do this several times...

Most likely the Power Inveter... though both the power inverter and a failing LCD bulb will produce the same symptoms... Usually when the LCD Bulb starts to go, it will give off Pastel Colors.. Pinks/Oranges.. And Dim or Brighten in a flickering manner... Power inverters when starting to fail will do what you are explaining.. And go on and off until eventually complete failure....

If you have a Sleep Switch/Pin in the upper base of the laptop, check to see if that is sticking ..

I have a presario r 3000 and while in the desktop property settings i think I changed the screen resolution and the moment I hit apply I lost all video, the laptop will power on and seems to boot...

as you were  able to open the laptop look for a jumper call JP13. connect it in the 2-3 pins for 5 seconds. you said that it stopped display once you changed screen resolution so dont worry about the bios. check the display devices.

Laptop boots up but screen won't stay on

There are multiple actual problems you may have. It is most likely not the tab itself, but the chip that controls it. It could also be a lose cable between the LCD and the motherboard. Your best bet is to take it to a professional and have them work on it. Just let them know that you are going into surgery soon and need it fast, and they will most likely help you out. Do not take it to any major companies, but find a nice small privately owned computer shop. And be sure to be very nice about it- if you come across as rude, they won't feel like doing you any favors and speeding things up. Trust me- I work there.

FR Board on my toshiba laptop

Pushing on the lid-close switch on these things will only take you so far. The screen's inverter board needs to be replaced. This is a common problem with this series laptops.
