This most likley is s screen connection problem. You need to take off the top case for the screen. Usually two screws to a side. May differ with machine company. once screen case is off, there us usually a cable covered up up silver tape or white tape. take tape off and push two video connections togeather. Replace tape and put cover back on re-install all screws. If this does not work , you need to replace the back light board. Good luck!

Dell Inspiron 2350 All-in-One Desktop PC Fault Flickering Touch Screen


It could be 1 of 2 things, either your monitor is going out on you, or your graphics adapter is going bad. Depending on how long ago you purchased it, and from whom, I would contact Dell service to find out if they can return it, or give you any suggestion.

Regarding the blank screen, your monitor is most likely faulty - I'm assuming an LCD screen, in which case the backlight is failing, possibly the tubes or the the inverters.

Regarding the fans, you may have pulled the fan leads out of their connectors on the motherboard. Check to see if the CPU fan spins while the computer is switched on.

Hp pavilion f1340.uk will not turn on at all, just the green light flickers at the rear of the tower?


Could be a number of things wrong with this tower.

-If the computer stays at a black screen with a white cursor, it means it's missing system files and the operating system cannot start up. A reinstall is needed.

-If your computer won't power on, it could be either the power supply or motherboard, or sometimes, both.

-Also, check to see if the RAM is properly inserted into the proper slots.

Hope this was helpful.

My hp slimline's screen flickers violently at times and then it calms, but sometimes my computer restarts. Sometimes on restart it will not communicate a signal to the monitor. Problem has gotten steadily...


That issue normally happens with the graphics card. I am not sure if you have a PCI or an AGP graphics card or an onboard graphics card. But for all of the issue, you can try updating the motherboard chipset driver, or the graphics card (incase you have the onboard or AGP graphics card).

Try logging in to BIOS stay for some time and check if the screen flickers. If the screen flickers still in BIOS, its a possible graphics issue

My hp pavilion dv6000 laptop does not turn on, the blue buttons light up, but the screen stays off


Try it without the rechargable battery connected sometimes the battery shorts and causes problems.
Do you have FN[function] keys at the left side. touch FN key with something else and see if screen comes back.Sometimes you can turn off the screen to send it to the back connected monitor.Connect (extra if you have) an external monitor to the back (vga) connector.If that shows, then you have to ""flutzz" with the FN(function) & F1-F12 keys

My screen is flickering sometimes and sometimes have to play with it to come on.


Shut down your PC, then re seat (remove and replace) the cable on both ends and tighten the screws. Then start the computer and see if it still flickers.

Laptop screen flickers then goes very dark


Did you check the sleep mode or power off mode? What do you do to make it come back on? Sounds like it might be getting too hot and/or going bad.
