Sounds like you may have the monitor set to an external monitor. look for a Fn key and press it in combination with the monitor key - typically located near the F8 key it should be an icon in blue that looks like a monitor. press this combination and see if it comes back up.

    take a flashlight and look carefully at the screen, do you see stuff very faintly? it could be that your backlight inverter has gone belly up, and needs to be replaced.
    Secondly, turn the laptop on so you have some activity, then press and hold power button until it shuts off. This is a hard reset. if your computer is stuck in a sleep mode, this will fix it.
    Does that help at all?

    After reviewing this one more time and looking very carefully at your model I regrettably have to show you a thread from HP directly. Be sure to make up a big cup of coffee and get some aspirin.
    I have one of these on my tech bench. The hard drive was full of bad sectors, had to run Hirens boot cd and use HDD regen to recover, then copied my data to the a new hard drive, but i am still not confident this will solve the real problem at hand. Please have a read, you will find this enlightening, sorry to hear you may in this boat too. Click here for link

Screen all black.

Aside from the screen being all black, I am assuming that the notebook seems to be operating normally. So I suspect the screen's back light may have been turned off by Power Management. Usually pressing any key should turn the back light on but if this doesn't happen, try pressing the Fn key at the lower right of the keyboard and while holding it down press the F6 key at the top center of the keyboard. If this works, you should check the notebook's Power Management profile to see if it is the way you would want it to be. For example, normally if the notebook is on AC power, the screen should never turn off.

I have an Acer aspire 5534 that is less then a year old. I noticed that the screen started to have red lines and the coloring was off today so I restarted it. It then had a white screen so I turned it off...

The problem with your PC Notebook has to do with the screen.Since you can hear the sound then your screen might be damaged maybe mistakenly.
You just have to get to the right store and replace the screen so your notebook can work perfectly.

The screen remains black when computer is turned

maybe a hardware problem, on booting the pc, move the screen to every angle to see if there is a connection problem.
If so, then use your warranty if you have one.

Screen blinking:

first check out if the screen saver is enabled to make your screen black. but if you are using your computer and the screen blinks or turns black there is a loose contact of wire in your computer. bring it to the service center of your notebook and have it fix.
