If you're talking about you're notebooks display screen try connecting a standard monitor to you're notebook. There is a 15 pin VGA connector on the back of the notebook. Once connected restart the notebook. If you still do not have display on the monitor than you're integrated video card could be bad. If you do have display on the monitor, than you're notebooks video card is good needs to be repaired.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.

My Dell Inspiron 140 have no imags. Power leds is on but no pic on the screen. Please Help.. Thank You,

try plugging it into an external monitor you may need the latest drivers for your video card for this to work if you get no video still then it could be your video card another thing to check is to see if you shine a light at an angle down the laptop screen if you see a faint picture it could be your ccfl's need replaced if it is still black but works on the external monitor then it could be the inverter hope this helps

Toshiba Satellite A105 - S4547, screen goes black when using the battery (not plugged in)

check your control panel/video to ensure device driver is current. use when on battery no pic suggests that the battery life span is shortened. Recharge and check how long the battery level lasts when doing normal internet or document reviews. Video playing drains the battery at a high rate, when battery is already low, virtual memory tries to assist.

A black band down the middle is symptom of dead
circuit in that area, the lcd will have to be replaced.
make sure it is the lcd by connecting an external monitor to the laptop and send the pic to it.
all you can do is open the unit and reseat the lcd cable to the video card connector.
