Please try rebooting and see if that corrects the issue

if it does that means that your laptop is going to sleep and isn't waking up

check the setting in the control panal under power and make sure that it is set to wake up again with out a password

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

Screen shows orange with black lines and then goes turquiose with ghosting, turns to normal screen when lid is nearly closed?


Check with the LCD by attaching one side to the LCD and other side to the laptop. If display is clear on the LCD then your laptop's screen have some problem otherwise your laptop's motherboard have some problem

I have a Samsung R700 laptop . The problem is when the laptop is plugged into power lead it works fine but when it is running off the battery the screen flickers then goes black but comes back on after you...


Your LCD screen's picture comes from a very thin ribbon cable which has either a) worked itself loose or b) worn out, either way you will need to undo the four screws at the front of the screen (usually covered with 4 rubber covers). Very carefully unclip the plastic surrounds and then check for the connecting cable. If it needs to be replaced you can ussually locate one from Ebay.

What to do if laptop screen is blank and the lapstop won't shut off


Try to unplug the power cable then flip the laptop over on its closed lid and on the back should be an access to the battery. Remove the battery for about 2 minutes replace the battery and power cable. It should reboot to a black white screen giving 3 choices. You'll have about 35 seconds before the computer auto selects safe mode. Go ahead enter safe mode after it completely boots in safe mode shut down computer completely, wait 30 seconds and hopefully it will start up normally. If it doesn't you may have an issue with the operating system which unless your computer savvy and have all of the computers original cds you'll need to take it to a reputable computer repair shop

Monitor darkens down every few minutes. It relights when i open and close lid.


Could be your power settings. Some new laptops adjust screen brightness due to ambient light.

I just bought a docking station for my Dell laptop computer. How do I hook it up so I can keep the top closed and use my desk top monitor? I want to be able to turn on the laptop without opening the lid.


Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...

Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)

Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".

Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.

I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
