If your laptop has a monitor output, try connecting one. There should be a key (or two keys) that you can press to get the computer to route the signal to the external monitor port once your laptop has finished the startup. Try to get a monitor that has as high of a resolution as possible. It is very possible that the settings for the video on your laptop got set at a resolution your screen cannot function with.

It could be 1 of 2 things, either your monitor is going out on you, or your graphics adapter is going bad. Depending on how long ago you purchased it, and from whom, I would contact Dell service to find out if they can return it, or give you any suggestion.

Sony VGC LA3. Computer switches on ok and green light is on but screen remains black. When the monitor screen is pressed the screen comes alive for a couple of seconds then turns black again


Go to start, control panel, power options and see what your time are when the laptop is plugged in and when it on battery.

Do that and let me know what you find.

I will watch for your reply.

HELP! Laptop screen has shrunk... black border on screen.


Big Lebowski - this refers to an issue with a laptop.
No CRT on a laptop.
It is more likely a driver issue.
Go to dell.com, look for support, put in your service tag & update the graphics drivers.

This isn't a software issue. If your laptop is still under warranty have it serviced. If not, see if the costs involved are even worth it. Something within the hardware sounds like it caused a chain reaction and has affected more than just the battery.

Problems with My Monitor Screen.


Hi,
Sony vaios are very tempramental.
Did you drop or bang the machine, before this happened ?
There are a few suggestions.
1:) the screen catch mechanism is jammed.
Solution:- turn on laptop, using a small blunt screwdriver. where the laptop latch, goes into the laptop base. gently push the latch mechanism a few times, to see if it,s jamming.
2:) if the screen display shut off mechanism is under the actual laptop screen lid, push the small plunger, up down several times.
These are common likely causes.
3:) press and hold the power on button for 15-30 seconds, this is in case the system has gone into hibernate/sleep mode.
4:) ensure The battery is fully charged. And the laptop power supply is plugged in.
If none of the above work for you, you may need to take into a repair specialist.

Mike @ compurepair.
