My Hp notebook screen is black,sometimes it fades in and out black to grey then to black.how can i fix it


Connect your laptop to an external monitor and switch to monitor. If the external monitor shows the desktop, then the complaint is in the lcd/led display unit means the screen. Replace the screen. If the external monitor also shows the complaint, then it is normally due the mch(media controller hub) . It comes as separate card unit in some models and onboard for some other models.Only an experienced technician can solve that issue. In some rare cases it is due to a corrupted BIOS. Reply if this helped you.

Have you verified that the problem is indeed your monitor and not the video card on your PC? i would start by connecting the monitor to a laptop or another PC to verify that the same issue occurs no matter what the source. Once you've verified that, you're likely dealing with a monitor that requires repair or replacement. Hopefully it's under warranty. Hope this helps a bit.

Connect the monitor to the "video-output" port on your laptop, to see if the monitor is working correctly.
You make have to tell the laptop to send the video-output to "both" the internal LCD screen and the external monitor.

If it works, then your monitor is OK.
Restart your computer, and keep tapping the F8 key, until you get a menu of startup items. Choose the 'VGA' startup option, to select the "minimal" device-drivers for your video-card. With the "minimal" drivers, your monitor should still be working.

Black screen after returning from florida


plug in > if charge light comes on and screen black proceed.... if no charge light comes on on laptop your charger's not working
plug into external monitor > if the external monitor works fine with laptop then your LCD is not working, you can look for the Function key (should be bottom left) and the monitor button (probably f7) and switch back and forth... this should tell you if the lcd works or not.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

Laptop screen will not come on


What you do is when you switch on your laptop, Try to press F2 to go into BIOS or do anything so that your computer won't boot into windows. My question is incase you're in BIOS setup...can you see anything on screen ??? if no then try to look more seriosly that anything???? if no then last test is to plug external monitor..incase nothing on external monitor also then you've problem with your notebook maybe motherboard or screen problem.
Goodluck,takecare.
