Hi There,

You can troubleshoot this at home, work, or a friend's house by connecting your laptop to an external monitor. On a Compaq you will need to hold down the "fn" key and press the "F4" key once they are connected to transfer the signal to the external monitor.

If the external monitor displays your normal screen view, then your laptop's screen (LCD) has failed. If it does not display and shows the same screen as your laptop, then your video controller on the laptop's motherboard or another motherboard problem is the issue.

In either case, you will likely need to send this laptop in for warranty repair.

Best Regards,

Marcus

Blank Screen


If it has sound, then its back-light has failed which is a service engineers work but may also be related to a screen fault in which case a new set is needed as cost of repair makes it not worth it.

If no sound then dare I say worse and mostly if more than 2 years old, not worth it, sad to say as parts do not linger very long other than major brand names most are generic badges on economy sets.

Hope this helps..........

Garmin nuvi 1310 blank screen


If it is 24 hours old TAKE IT BACK. There is no reason why anything should be going wrong on a brand new device. Whilke there may be a fix you should never have to do this on a brand new gps. Garmin has an excellent service/support system. Just go the the garmin website and call the toll free support number. Pretty sure they will tell you to take it back as well.

Brand New laptop, won't start


Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.
