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.

My brand new gateway ne71b series will turn on and boot up, but the screen remains black the entire time, never even bumped the laptop, but it's too late to exchange it. When i first got it, it was fine...


Try taking the battery out. Then with the computer plugged into the AC adapter turn the computer on.

There have been cases where bad batteries were causing odd electrical fluctuations that prevented the computer from working correctly.

If that doesn't work you can leave the batteries out, unplug the computer for a few minutes. Put the batteries back in, plug the AC adapter in and try starting the computer. Its not a full reset but it may help.

You could also try attaching your computer to a tv or another monitor

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power


You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

It sounds like either your Lcd data cable loose or graphic card fried from excess heat. If you feel excess heat at the bottom of your laptop near the fan ventillation, then most probably it is graphic card. A chiplevel technician can repair your laptop. Don't try any repair if you are not a technician. Any repair without proper knowhow will kill your notebook for ever. Hope i helped you

Black screen at startup


It sounds like the graphics card or on board graphics is causing the issue, as the external monitor is not working either. Hopefully its a graphics card which can be replaced easily, or there is an expansion slot for a graphics card to be added.
One thing you could try is resetting the CMOS by removing the battery from the motherboard and leaving for ten minutes. Replace the battery and try booting.
