This could be related to a few different issues. If you can make out text or images on the screen even though it is dark, that would suggest the LCD inverter has failed. The inverter provides th power for the LED lights that make the screen bright. If that is the case than you would need to seek local repair. If you cannot see anything on screen then it maybe the screen its self or the graphics controller that has developed a fault. Is it possible for you to connect the laptop to an external monitor, say from a desktop PC. If so and you can see the image on that, then the screen or screen cables have failed, if not than the graphics controller has failed. Either one of these also would require a local repair shop to repair the damage, but in the case of the last two faults, it can be quite expensive to repair.

My name is Rick and I am the owner and technician of Discount Camera Repair.

Monitor totally blackout

Hello madelyntrist,
Monitor totally blackout may from inverter problem.
To make sure inverter or not, switch on than knock the panel smoothly. If you see flashing light on area knocked, that indicate inverter is ok.
If that still any questions, please let me know.

My samsung 2233 has been totally blackout. Using a light, I can read the word behind the black screen. To solve the issue, I re-install all drivers, monitor adaptors, anti-virus softwares, finally formated...

Unfortunately, it isn't a Windows problem, but a monitor power or backlight failure. Your monitor's high voltage inverter board, or the backlight has failed. Often it is too expensive to repair, and cheaper to replace the monitor if it is out of warranty

Try lowering your brightness setting below 55.Its hard to see at just the right angle.The monitor has a failsafe installed for over voltage use of the bulbs for the screen. The lights go out but your screen is still there.
