Broke LCD screen

I have a laptop where I broke the LCD screen. All else seems fine.
I have a desktop and external hard drive as well. Desktop and laptop are connected through a router and are part of a home network for our internet.
Can I update my desktop (laptop was not backed up and was used last in Quickbooks, other programs) with the laptop via the network that I have and how do I do that? Thank you.

Windows is treating the "internal" screen as separate from your "external" screen,
i.e., you've seen computer-geeks with two side-by-side screens, with the Windows Desktop
spanning both screens. With a bit of "tuning", you can nominate the "external" screen as the "primary" screen, and thus see the Windows Desktop (which currently is showing on the "internal" screen). Or, for about $100 plus $60 labour, replace the LCD screen on your laptop with a "pre-owned" LCD screen.

Can you hear sound playing as if it were loading the Windows desktop? If so, there are are a few things to check for:

  1. Look VERY closely at the screen once the laptop is on. Can you make out very faint images? They will be hard to see and it's best to be in a well lit area at the time. If you do see images, then the backlight on your LCD screen has gone out. You will need a new LCD most likely.
  2. If you don't see any image at all, try plugging an external monitor into the laptop and booting up the laptop. If you see an image on the external monitor but not the LCD, then you may have a bad inverter/cable/LCD.
If you cannot get an image on the external monitor either, then your video card may be bad. Considering that a lot of laptop video cards are built-in to the motherboard, you may be looking at having to replace the motherboard of the laptop (about 2/3rds the cost of the laptop).

There may be other problems at hand, but those are the most common I've found in this type of situation.

hi,
most of the times if laptop or Desktop cpu falls then HDD is the very first part to be damaged.
You can try any third party software as partition magic or DM for formating the drive.

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.

Black screen for hp laptop


Hi,

Initially, a couple of ideas ou may want to explore:
  • hook an external monitor. Often there would be a VGA connector at the rear of a laptop specifically for this purpose. It would need a standard 15 video cable normally attached or with the external monitor. You may need to cycle through Fn + F? keys to enable the external monitor. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon;
  • remove the hard disk of the erring laptop, connect it to a 2.5 to USB adapter and attach to a free USB port of a 2nd computer. it will be treated as an external storage device much like a thuimb/flash drive and therefore would allow copy and paste;
  • tap on the cover of the laptop, the one right behind the LCD screen anywhere on the sides, this is in the hope that it is a cold solder or loose connection;
  • run the laptop with the lid not fully opened;
  • slightly warp/twist the lid/LCD, it could just be a loose connection;
  • if the display works even just momentarily, then chances are that no major repair work is required. The bulk of the job would be in the opening and offhand, no major component replacement.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My Screen might be out??


dear ...,

when switching on te laptop, does it make noises, does the fan run, the CD/DVD-drive
LED shows green light and the harddisk rattle little bit? - good for you if it does, as the system still boots up !

to check if the LCD screen is broke and not the graphics card malfunctioning:

hook it up to an external monitor (one usually used with desktop PCs)
when laptop is switched off, using the 3-pin input in the back or to the right side of your laptop, and make sure the external monitor's power cord is properly fused...

Now switch on the external monitor first and then your machine again, and wait for the laptop boot messages on the monitor!
see anything? if yes the laptop screen is broke and needs to be replaced.
If still the external monitor stays black the onboard graphics card is up in smoke and you're in big trouble then.

Good luck finding out!

if you can find or purchase another cable adapter just replace it. not worth fixing and might cause your external hard drive to crash if you get to fix the cable wrongly and will be spending more and losing both hard drive and cable

Broke lcd screen on laptop; need update to networked desktop, how?


If I understand correctly, you need to update your laptop??
Or get some files off it??
Anyway, connect an external monitor to your laptop and you can work on it that way. You may need to push a special function key to switch monitors. Check your keyboard.
In any case, connect the external monitor and turn it on, then power up the laptop.
