Try attaching an external monitor to the laptop & see if you could get any display on it. If this is successful, then you might have either a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp

How do I repair my 19in LCD monitor, it receives video signal, but goes black screen?


Connect the "bad" monitor to the VGA-out port on a notebook/laptop computer, to see if it works normally when connected. If not, then the monitor is "dead".
If it works fine, check the "screen-resolution" of the computer's video-card, to see if the values exceed the capability of the monitor.

Hp entertaiment pc problem display STAYS BLACK BUT ALL LIGHTS COME ON


If the Video Controller fails, the screen will stay black when the rest of the computer runs as it should. To test this, look to the side of the computer and locate the external Monitor attachment. It is a nine pin male outlet. Take a regular computer monitor and attach it to the connection and turn on the computer. If the Monitor acts like your normal LCD screen, then the main LCD screen is bad. If Neither the Monitor or LCD works, then the Video portion of the computer may be defective.

Black screen on pc


Look at the screen closely at an extreme angle while it's on. If you can see the normal display but it's just very dim then the screen inverter is shot; an easy DYI project for ~$40. If there's no display at all, can you test it by hooking it up to a monitor? If that works then the screen either went bad and needs replacing (under $200) or the power circuit to the screen (delicate wires near hinge) need replacing. If an external monitor doesn't work then it "might" be a graphics chip failure. Easier at that point to just replace than repair.

No data just black screen


If everything appears to be working, hook a external monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture is okay! the inverter board located under the screen has failed, or the backlight behind the display is defective. Now if both screens show the same problem it is the video graphics card that is bad normally built into the motherboard.

Black screen


If the notebook is not displaying anything when powering on, but is still powering on (indicated by the power LED lighting up) then you should consider hooking it up to an external display or monitor to test where the problem stems from.
If, when hooked up, nothing displays on the monitor it is a hardware issue with the either the Hard Drive, System board, or LCD.
If, when hooked up, the screen displays normally on the monitor, it is an LCD problem
If, when hooked up, the screen displays with artifacting, vertical lines, or discoloring, it is an issue with the system board/ Graphics card.

This is normal. Your monitor has a VGA hook in for regular definition. What it is doing, the monitor always by default looks for the VGA hook first. On my desktop it does the same thing until it finds a signal on the DVI.
