Usually this is a result of the ribbon cable being loose or worse broken. You can have it looked at by a tech or you can disassemble the laptop yourself to ensure the ribbon cable is securely in place. If you're lucky the cable will be a press on adapter on both ends so you can attempt to replace just that as a troubleshooting step. The worst case is purchasing a new screen. Cheers, Ravi Shanghavi

Replaced broken screen start laptop up screen black put tourch to screen and can see faintly windows 10 conect to monitorand fine help

Hi, It sounds like you have left off the connector for the inverter (the lights). Depending on the screen there will be two small connectors for the lights (one each side) which need to be connected to the small logic board below the screen.

My pc wont let my touch the screen to move it i can only use my mouse and its making me worried

A touch screen computer overides the requirements for mouses. Once a mouse is conected to the system downgrades the touchscreen capability to device driven fucntionality. Attempt to restore the computer to its default functionality.

INPUT2: HD15 keeps coming up on my screen. i cant get through it. do i need to buy new input2: HD15 cable? the monitor is sony make and the hardrive is fujitsu siemens computer make

more information is needed for this question to be answered properly
im going to guss that this is your conection cable from video card to your monitor
try disconecting and reconecting the cable making shur that the cable is firmly conected at both ends
its posible that part of the tower case is preventing the full insertion of the cable into the socket
cut away 1/8 inch of the ruber shielding around the pc side of the cable so that it can fully be inserted into the conection
check that the pins on the male conection arn't bent or broken off

also run your closed hand down the cable itself checking for cracks cuts or breaks in the cable

if any problem is seen replace the cable if any pins are broken off check the femal reciver for the broken of part of the pin so as to not damage anothere cord
good luck

My computer turns on sometimes the quickly goes blank. Other times, the On light comes on but the screen stays black and nothing seems to be moving inside.

try to desconnect or unplug your hard drive, if you see a black screen with a bunch of white letters, you hard drive is crashed, if not try to conect a second monitor (external) tru you vga connector, if work fine you have a lcd problem===>>>reemplace asap.

Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo2.gif DS:

How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video2.gif in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS2.gif Lite"

And after opening it you can do your work. Make sure the flexible cables connecting the top screen part of your DS are well in place and not broken. Your problem may be only a loosen cable but in case the cable is broken you gonna need a replacement. Be careful not to damage the screen or other sensitive electronic parts on your device and you will be on your way.

Good Luck...
