Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

External monitor only works if I start windows vista in safe mode


First after you boot it up normally (not Safe Mode) can you move the mouse far to the left or to the right do you see the mouse. If you do see the mouse pointer you are running dual monitor mode and the laptop screen is set as the primary monitor. You have to run it in Save Mode and set the external monitor as the primary monitor. Hit the Start button then select Help+Support and in the search box enter "dual monitors". Read how to set up the primary monitor.

Second maybe you need to activate the external monitor. When laptops boot normally (not Safe Mode again) with a external monitor connected you have to hit the Fn (function) key (probably blue near Alt key) and some other number key (it probably has a blue monitor symbol on it) I'm not sure which one. This key sequence is a toggle sequence. In other words when you boot a laptop it goes directly to the laptop screen then the first time you do a Fn + number key combination it will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen the next time you push Fn+number key it will turn on both monitors (external and laptop screen) the third time it will turn on only the laptop screen and so forth.

Laptop screen is black


There are a couple of reasons that a laptop screen could blank our. The first is that many laptops have the ability to output video to an external monitor or projector, such as for video presentations. In order to save battery life, there is a function key combination that can be used to blank the laptop screen. Most laptops have these "functions" on the F1-F12 keys in blue and there is an "fn" key that must be used with them to activate the function. Look for a key that has a blue "square" with vertical lines on either side of it. This is the Monitor function key. Press and hole the "fn" key, then press the Monitor function key. See if the screen returns. A corrupted video driver could also be the problem. Do you have any display when booting up? If so, try using the F8 key to get to SAFE Mode. If you have a display there, check and see if there are any problems with the video driver, or just reload the driver. The third possibility is the the LCD's backlighting source may have failed. IF this is the case, you probably have an older laptop and replacement is usually cheaper and more cost effective than repair.

Screen is blank (no video), even when connected to to an external monitor. I presume at this point that it's a problem with the on-board graphics processor. Notebook appears to power-up normally. Notebook...


will video work when first booting?? try to start in safe mode then if you have restore disk or applications disk remove the display video in hardware manager, sometimes the drivers get corrupted, thei may re-install video drivers. al so you might go into bios and check for setup defaults hope this works. have had similar situations on diffirerent systems. some laptops have a Fn key Function key so when you have external monitor up to system it switched=s from laptop monitor to external little picture on keys usually on or near function keys.

Black screen


One way to test it is to connect a monitor to the VGA port (make sure to activate the external monitor (Fn+monitor key)
If it does work on the external monitor, I would look at replacing the onboard LCD.
If it doesn't, you are looking at problems with the onbaord video.

Dead compaq laptop, no boot activity


Larnold..Sounding like you need to check the LCD Power Inverter Circuit board.. this is located inside the screen a long rectangular circuit board that sends power to the screen backlight & Display Panel.. Could also be a Bad Backlight.. Try Booting it.. Hold it up to a light and look closely at the screen.. If you see a faint image but no light, it is the Backlight, if Just Black No Activity then its most likely the Power Inverter, OR a Bad Video Card.. You can test the VIDEO by Connecting the laptop to a Computer Monitor or similar with the laptops VGA Serial port.. then Use your function Key and Switch to 2nd Display.....(one of your F keys.. ).. If it Shows up on another screen, Its a Display problem and not the video card... Hope This Helps alittle.. Cheers

Lcd tv shows no video on vga mode?


Hi,

Try lowering the PC's Screen Resolution and Screen Refresh Rate to the lowest possible (800 X 600 @ 60Hz) and work them up a step at a time to your preference. Both can be found at the Settings tab of your Display Properties. Of course, you would still need to press the Fn & F? keys of the laptop to activate external. The Fn key is one of the function keys with a monitor icon on it.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
