    My m60 has started showing a strange problem. On cold reboot from powered off the system shows the bios boot up display and the windows xp startup logo as normal. However as soon as the os loads the full display driver (i.e. just before the xp login screen appears) the display goes blank. This is not a blue screen or a white screen but it looks like all power has been removed from the lcd matrix and what you can see is the back reflective surface illuminated by the back light but viewed through a totally transparent lcd matrix. The system meanwhile appears to continue to boot up normally. If I then power off the laptop by holding down the power button and and then reboot and use F8 to select boot up in VGA mode the system boots up normally (but into VGA mode display). If at the XP login screen I tell the system to reboot and let it come up normally it boots up perfectly into full high resolution video mode!

Ok, when connecting to another monitor, be sure to use the Function Key, and press the appropriate F Key to enable an external monitor. Without doing this, you will never see an external picture.

If that picture is fine, then yes, you need to think about your video card, and I would start with updating the driver.

FIX THE COLOR, IT HAS A GREEN TINT THAT DOESN'T GO AWAY WHEN TRYING TO ADJUST COLORS FOR DISPLAY DON'T KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Hi Mdamon,

Please follow the below steps to solve your problem :-

Your LCD panel has the settings button which you need to use to adjust your LCD screen to the center and make sure there is no black strip remaining after appropriate settings,

To make things easy for you , click on the below to download the manual directly so that you have a complete idea of the steps that are supposed to be taken for the screen adjustment.

There are many factory settings of different settings that are preset and can be activated using the panel.

Tip :- Try changing the screen resolution via the display properties from your desktop as an incorrect resolution could result in bad images or blurred images.
