If the display shows on the external monitor then the problem is the LCD display not the in-built video graphic card. I hope this answers your question. Thank you and regards.

The screen is black on my hp pavilion laptop


if the system is running and hard drive is operating is is possible that the Video Card that is part of the Motherboard is Bad. THis is because both the laptop screen and external monitor are black.
You can take the laptop to a local shop but often the cost of repair is greater than the cost to replace.
if a shop will evaluate for free go there.
best case you have a bad stick of ram, worst case processor or Video section of mother board is bad. many other possibilities could be the cause.

Screen on ma2a gateway doesn't turn on. Is it the video card?


Borrow a monitor and plug it into the VGA port. That might tell you whether the graphics card is bad.

Why some graphic motherboard in Graphic card port disply came but in normal display not came


Difficult to understand your question.
If an external monitor works then the problem is Cheapest to most expensive:
MB to Power inverter cable is bad (No light to board) to check shine a flash light at you screen if still black not this
Power inverter is bad
(No light to board) to check shine a flash light at you screen if still black not this
Cable from Motherboard to Laptop screen is bad flashing on wiggle test will show flickering image
Display panel on laptop is bad if this is the case replace the Display cable/ Inverter power cable/LCD
this may still not solve the problem if you are not sure take to a local repair shop

Dell Inspiron 6400


If you get the erroneous characters in the set-up (BIOS) screen on external monitor, then either your graphics card is defective or the motherboard. The diagnostics are just reporting that it cannot detect the LED display. Unfortunately the only way to determine if the graphics card is defective is to replace it. If that does not resolve the problem then you know it's your motherboard. That whole process can be costly. That model laptop is about 5 years old and parts could run you about $100 to $300 online. Might be time to shop around for a new one.

Laptop, display problem


Hi,
Dear User..Does the Screen have a displayed Image?

If the laptop has no image at all it can be video card or LCD cable or the LCD panel. About the only non-invasive test you can try is to plug an external monitor into the laptop. This will determine if the problem is motherboard/graphics card or lcd cable/lcd screen. If you have an image on the external monitor then its likely to be lcd/cable/lcd screen.

Is the Displayed Image Faint?

A dim screen can be caused by three things;

1/ The LCD inverter which runs the LCD backlighting

2/ The CCFL backlighting fluro tube in the LCD panel

3/ The motherboard supplying signal & voltage to the inverter.

Thanks

Hi,

ATI has been taken over by AMD and you will find your display driver software at the following link:

http://support.amd.com/uk

Select your exact model from the drop down menu and follow the instructions to download the correct drivers for your display.

Let me know should you need any further assistance.

Best wishes,

I have a black border (square) around the image, so image is not stretched to the full on my Samsung BX2450.


Goto Catalyst controll centre. (for ATI graphics cards)
Goto the My Digital flat pannels tab then select the scalling options. Shift the scalling arrow to the maximum.
click apply
Problem fixed.
If you have another type of graphics card and not an ATI try to find the "scalling options" thats the solution.

Hp pavilion zd8000 ati mobility radeon x600 128 mb


A bit late over a year has passed.........

I have a smilar problem, with the ATI enabled the laptop black screens on startup.
If you disable the ATI x600 in Device Manager (using safe mode) the laptop works fine as the ATI is not being used.

Solution is to replace the ATI x600, which unfortunately is a specialist job as this is soldered directly onto the motherboard. Or replace the motherboard.

I have located a company in Manchester (called CRM) that repairs HP computers, and they can repair/replace the ATI for around £175, or replace the motherboard for about £250. Replacing the board gives you a 12months warranty. add VAT to those figures. There phone number is 01618881232, I have found them to be very helpful.

Graphic card on sony pcg-gr15


There is no replacement for this as the graphics controller is onboard, as in built into the motherboard and not a seperate dedicated graphics card. You can try updating the driver but i would firstly go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager>click '+' sign on display adapters, select the adapter and right click and select uninstall. Restart pc and the graphics driver will be reinstalled. If no change, then it could be that the lcd or the back lighting is faulty and requires a qualified repairer.
