You need to open the power settings. This will be under the control panel or show up as an icon by the clock.

You just need to find the selection for when you close the lid. On my toshiba it says something like "When I close the lid do the following:" What you need to do is set it to do nothing and that should fix your problem.

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.


all-lights-lcd-screen-4ztirbadqll2ypvmakqp10pq-2-0.jpg
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.

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/wp-images/bad-laptop-video/washed-lcd-image-1.jpg
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.

GOOD LUCK.

I have attached a monitor. How do I shut the laptop screen when the monitor is attached?


you need to go into the settings on your laptop. go to control panel and look for display, in this area you may see something like "ATTACH LAPTOP TO ANOTHER SCREEN". you can use this to connect, but you can also tell you laptop what to do when you close the top. Usually it will shut down or sleep when you do this. you can also use the help file on your laptop, when you type in "change what laptop does when you close the lid" you will be taken to a file that will explain how to change the settings.

Slammed the lid down on my laptop, & it doesn't work


you most likely damaged the LCD or dislodged the cables from system board to the LCD. Also check for a small button or "nub" near the base of the screen, is it stuck or broken? this turns off the screen when lid is closed, slamming may have got it stuck.

if you have an external monitor. shut off the laptop, connect the video cable from external monitor and turn on laptop...do you get video?

if yes, your LCD is damaged and needs service. if no, you have done far more damage and need to have the whole thing diagnosed at a service center.

ok you have laptop. Look for a key called "Fn" it should be around the ctrl or alt key on your keyboard. Try pressing that. After trying to turn it on and it wont. press the Fn key. The last time you were able to use the laptop how did you shut it down? Did you tell it by going threw the menu when logged on. Or just pressed the button? Or did you tell it to shut down then you closed the screen/lid before it actually shut down? Laptops will go into stand by after you tell it to shut down if you dont wait til it shuts down, before shutting the lid. ALso depending on the laptop company you have Trying to figure out which one it is. They have program installed with your system. And depending on how it's set up, will greatly effect how or even IF your laptop will shut down right.

You probably have a sticking hibernate, or sleep button. Near the hinge, there is a tiny pin looking thing sticking up. When you shut the computer, this presses against a switch below the case and puts the computer into sleep or hibernate mode. If this sticks, it won't boot up right. Shut the computer down and use canned air to blow out at the pin opening to clear any debris.

Close lid of laptop without shutting down system


You have to configure what laptop do when the lod is closed . go to Control Panel , Power Options , Advanced . In this tab you will see an option " When I close the lid " and a drop down menu just choose do nothing and press ok . It will not shut down your laptop when lid is closed .

LCD cutting out


In the absence of any flickering, I think it is the inverter for the backlight that has developed a heat problem.
Experiment with this; tilt the laptop, raising it in the rear with anything that does not appreciably block air flow, then use a fan placed behind it aimed at the underside of the case.
If the time before death (blackout) is extended, then it is as described above. If it makes no difference, then it is likely only the fluorescent backlight lamp itself.

Screen went black


When you close the lid, there is a small pin that engages the case and flips a switch to tell the laptop the case has been closed. The monitor will ALWAYS turn off then, because otherwise, the heat build up would burn the screen! Do not try to defeat this, replacing an LCD screen is usually more expensive than the value of the laptop!

Now, that all being said (and please remember), the situation you have now is (hopefully) just that the laptop tried/succeeded in going into ACPI "suspend" or "hibernate" mode.

1. Remove all cables and 10/100. Remove all USB devices. Just leave the PSU (AC power supply) connected.

2. Press the power button firmly, JUST once. Wait. And I mean WAIT, because some laptops can take 2 minutes or more to come out of suspend/hibernate, if they were very busy at the time it was shut down.

3. If the LCD screen lights up. you are done. But if it does not light up now, then proceed to step 4.

4. Press and HOLD the power button down for 10 seconds. This forces the laptop to shut down completely, even from suspend/hibernation. Some unsaved files may be lost, but tghe laptop goes cold, so you can start ACPI over again.

5. After a few minutes, press the power button again, firmly, just ONCE and for 1 second max. Laptop should start up OK.

6. Once it starts up, go to START MENU/SETTINGS/CONTROL PANEL/POWER SETTINGS and search for the "hibernation" tab. Turn hibernation OFF. your laptop obviously has some problems or lack of responsiveness with hibernation (most do). Use suspend, instead. It is much safer,. faster, and still does a good job of saving HDD and LCD wear. Please let me know how this goes for you, there are other more detailed problems that may be involved here, but I suspect this is most likely.
