Faulty lid / screen on HP HDX18T Laptop


Yes this is either the video cable which runs from the motherboard to the screen or the inverter. Both are inexpensive but the cheapest option to replace before you look at the screen itself. Of course if you check that the cable isn't loose would be a good place to start. You need to remove the keyboard to access this.

Samsung n120 netbook screen remains black through windows boot up. I'm assuming boot up into windows then home page goes ok, because I can hear the windows start up music, then eventually skype...


Hi possible the Video card is busted on the LCD, get in BIOS see if the screen will still remain Bak if it does then the LCD is busted, get in safemode if the issue is still the same then it is the LCD but if there is Video in safe mode the issue is the video card
To get in safe mode keep on tapping F8 as soon as you power the Laptop To get in BIOS keep on tapping Del or F1 as soon as you power the Laptop

My laptop screen quickly blinks when turned on...if I tilt my screen closer to me...the blinking stops. My left mouse button on my laptop doesnt work unless I press down very hard. I used the air duster on...


The screen issue is due to a loose or crimped cable in the hinge area of the screen that needs to be tightened or un-crimped.

The mouse button sounds like it lost the pad that went between the button and the sensor that tells the computer that the button was pressed.
Both issues should be easily fixed at your local repair shop.

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.

System does not boot Possible Hard drive issue


Hiya. Why replace the hard drive? When you say your computer failed to boot - are you sure it wasn't booting? Maybe it did boot but your screen remained blank. It sounds more like a screen problem, quite likely the ribbon connection is loose or it could be damaged. Its a very common problem and tilting the screen moves the ribbon a fraction and it then makes the connection. Try switching on and if the screen is totally blank, no message at all, no flashing cursor then its the screen. If you wanted to be 110% sure, easiest way is to connect laptop to an external screen and test it that way. Hope this is helpful.
