Hook up to an external monitor and if you can see. If you can see on the external monitor, then it's most likely your inverter or back light that has gone bad on your laptop screen. Inverters can be replaced fairly easily, but replacing a back light is a bi.ch and most people will just replace the whole screen rather than mess with the back light since you got to do some major surgery and de-soldering to get to it.

Screen is black


Can you hear the startup chime? It could be a bad video card, if so... take it to an apple store or certified mac repair shop.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video


Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.


Let me know if this helps.

When i turn it on, its blue lights come on but nothing on the screen. I am using my sister's laptop to ask. It is an HP Pavillion.


If the computers lights are coming on and the fans are turning then the computer is receiving power. Try turning the sound on to see if you can hear the Windows Startup sounds (or Mac respectively). If you can hear the sounds then it is likely that the screen for the laptop has broken. If the laptop has a Video Card (most do not) this could also be faulty. Since you can't see anything you won't be able to fix it yourself, it will likely need to be returned to HP for laptop repairs.

No sound is heard with calls on Skype, I get video, and i hear sounds made by the program, but no sound from the recipient of the caller. I get sound when I video chat Mac to Mac, but not Mac to Windows,...


Ok, by the sound of it both yourself and whoever you're calling have not set up Skype quite right.
On your end, you need to:
  • Make sure you have a working microphone - try using Skype's built in 'Echo' feature (try calling 'echo123')
  • In Skype -> Preferences -> Audio, make sure that microphone is selected.
On their end, make sure they've done the same - they must have a working microphone, correctly setup with Skype in order to send you sound.
Hope that helped!

Nothing shows up but audio works


Most likely your Logic Board needs to be replaced. There is a quality program for Nvidia video Chip issue that Apple is honoring free of charge. Please take it to Apple Authorized place and see if your computer qualifies for that.

Hot to connect acer aspire mini laptop to digital lcd tv?


Press the Blue function key and toggle the screens. You can view, the Laptop, the Laptop and Screen, or just the screen.

Also you will need to flick through the channel button on the TV to get to the PC interface. Since you indicated you were using a VGA cable, this is likely the missing element.

Note: The VGA cable does not carry audio, you either had a separate audio interface to the TV or you were using RBG/Composite/S-Video/HDMI. So check to make sure you are using the correct cables.

Mac Laptop has black screen


Try starting in safe mode, this usually bypasses the graphics drivers, which could be in a funky state:
To start up in safe mode

Shut down your computer and wait 10 seconds.
Press the power button.
Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold down the Shift key.
You should press the Shift key as soon as possible after your hear the startup tone, but not before.
Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple logo and progress indicator (spinning gear).
