I presume everytime you close the lid the laptop goes to sleep, you have to adjust the power setting in control panel


-in control ponel, select power options
-select the advanced tab
-change the drop box under "When i close the lib of my portable computer:" to "DO NOTHING"
-apply the changes and OK that, close you laptop and set it aside!

Screen will not turn on but fan does


Try hooking up an external monitor, if you can. Be sure to close your laptop so it will recognize the external monitor as the main.

I want to use a external monitor keyboard mouse and close the lid and keep working on the computer


I'm not sure if you'll be able to close the lid because you might need a laptop that is designed to work with a docking station to do that.

Anyway, you can hook an external monitor, usb keyboard, and usb mouse to the laptop and continue working as usual.

I have an HP LP2065 monitor that I am trying to hook up to a laptop. When the monitor is hooked up it will flash the image on the screen and then go out. When you push the input button on the front of...


The monitor is faulty, this is confirmed when you connected to several laptops.
The fault could be a faulty inverter board which supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp for the back lighting. Have a close look at the monitor at a sharp angle, if you see a faint Windows image then it is definitely a back light fault.
For parts, check out these WEB sites.

Has a Toshiba Tecra 9000 won't power up. Power light on front is blanking which appears to be a code 3-3-2


The problem is cause due to one of the following: the backlight or the display, check your monitor brightness settings. Sometimes your brightness may accidentally have been all the way turned down, resulting in a blank/dark screen. The monitor controls are on the keyboard, directly above the numeric keys.
Look closely at your laptop's screen if the steps do not restore power to it and if it remains blank. Can you see a faint image on the screen? If so, the backlight may be off due to the LCD "lid close" detector malfunctioning. This malfunction likely happened due to the lid close switch being stuck in the "closed" position even though the lid is open. The switch is located beside the LCD's screen hinges, and tapping the switch a few times should unstick it.
Use an S-Video cable and plug your laptop up to an external monitor, such as your television set. With the laptop and TV hooked up, turn both on and see if your computer's desktop is displayed on the TV. You can also use a fifteen ( 15 )pin monitor desktop monitor by connecting it to the blue fifteen ( 15 ) connector at the side of the laptop if you cannot see anything on screen it is the display problem. If it is, your laptop's display needs to be replaced. If not, your motherboard and/or video subsystem may need to be completely removed and replaced.

Change monitor hooks


Requires the replacement of part of the screen cover. You can send me the unit for repair if you can't get it repaired locally.

My laptop's screen suddenly went white.


On your laptop, there are function keys. on mine, I have "fn" near the control key. Then you will notice there are corresponding (usually by color) for the functions. My laptop allows me to change the output of the screen in three ways:
  1. Display properties in control panel (you cant see those though!)
  2. Hook up the vga to external monitor, turn the computer on until it is booted, then close the lid
  3. pressing fn and the key that says "crt/lcd". For me it is fn/F8

I-INC monitor to use with my Dell Laptop, no signal to monitor?


When Windows logo disappear on the I-INC, do you still see it on the Laptop monitor?

All laptops have function keys to switch the screen between the external monitor (I-INC) and laptop monitor. On your laptop, it is Fn+F8 key. Press them once and wait for 3 seconds, it will switch the image between 2 monitors (external monitor ONLY, laptop monitor ONLY, and both).

During start-up, do not close the laptop cover. Because it may put your laptop into a stand-by mode and turn off the screen. You need to modify this Power Option setting within the Control Panel.

I just bought a docking station for my Dell laptop computer. How do I hook it up so I can keep the top closed and use my desk top monitor? I want to be able to turn on the laptop without opening the lid.


Well.. you'd still have to open the lid to turn it on, right? (because you didn't mention the model of your laptop, I don't know where the power button actually *is*)
You want to close it while it's on, without it hibernating or going to sleep...

Go to your control panel, then into power or power management (depending on your Windows version, because you didn't mention it)

Then have a look under the "advanced" tab where it asks "when I close the lid of my computer". Set that to "do nothing".

Now when you close the lid, the laptop screen should turn off, but the PC should keep running. I'm not sure if that will still turn your external monitor off though.

I think that is your best solution, other than hacking off the little button that senses when the lid is closed. =-]
