loos yr monitor use yr meter to confirm the transistor is still ok if yes then check for some open circuits around the board and resolder them. open circuits could be broken lines week soldering n etc.

Hi,

Based on your description it could be a loose connection. Externally, this could either be the power cord or the video cable, internally, this could be on any of the different connectors or less likely, a cold solder. Depending whether your monitor is the conventional CRT or an LCD, then it could be on the regulator board or the inverter.

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.

Lenovo c355 monitor wont come on at start up


I recommend turning the computer off then double-checking all connections to the monitor. Additionally, if you have another monitor, you could connect it, to see if it works.

Monitor stays in sleep mode?


when you disconnect the monitor from the PC do you see the self test appear on the screen? if you do then the monitor is working fine.
the issue is most likely that the computer's screen resolution is too high and your monitor cannot output that resolution , so it stays a blank screen or in 'sleep' mode as you described.
youd need to go into either Safe Mode when booting the system or find another monitor preferably a newer model to connect your computer to and decrease the resolution before connecting your monitor.

My computer turns on but the screen remains black. What should I do?


Hello,

The problem can be solved by these steps
1) Check the Video connector properly connected to PC
2) Monitor power supply cable fault
3) The VGA card is not working properly
4) The screen resolution is set to higher than the monitor supported resolution limit
The Best way to solve it replace monitor and see it is working properly
In case the monitor still stay blank you should check the VGA card



Try to start cmos setup and see whether the monitor still remains blank then it's VGA problem

When I turn my computer on i get a blank screen


if the computer is running (lights up, fans running) and stays running, while the screen receives no signal, then you need a new video card. be sure to try a different monitor or to try your monitor on a different pc first, to rule the monitor out, before you pursue a new video card.

Blank screen after turning computer on


Sounds like onboard video might have gone out. 2 suggestions, if the system is still underwarranty, send in for repair. If not, suggestion would be to open the case, and confirm type of slots AGP, PCI, PCI Express, and purchase a video card on the type to install.

Black screen on my labtop,can't see a thing


This sounds like a ram or memory issue. If your computer is under warranty I would contact the manufacturer. If it is not, I would find a manual and reseat the ram. All notebooks vary so I would not be able to tell you where it is specifically. The process is you pull out the ram, and put it back in.

If you feel uncomfortable doing this any local computer repair store should be able to take care of this for you.

Also, is the screen turning on, I mean can you tell if the screen is actually on. There may be a problem with the monitor, or cabling if the screen is not actually turning on. I understand the screen stays blank, but there is two different types of blank. As in there is no text but the screen is on. Or the screen is completely off.

If it is completely off it is not a memory issue, but a screen issue and would need to be handled by the manufacturer or repair firm.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
