Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r6430776-troubleshooting_laptop_power_failures

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine. The main indicators in these cases are the sound, and the hard drive LED on the laptop case. If the laptop sounds just like it always does for a minute or two after being turned on, it means it's going ahead and booting the operating system, but the video processor or part of the motherboard circuit for video output has failed. If the laptop just sits there and beeps when you turn it on, or if you hear the fan but not the hard drive chuckling with its active LED flashing away, it means the laptop isn't getting as far as trying to boot the operating system. While this could be due to any number of hardware problems, the most common and easiest to
troubleshoot or repair is RAM failure. If your laptop has two RAM modules installed, try booting with just one and then the other in the primary slot. If your laptop only has one RAM module, you might consider buying one online from a site with a good memory selector, like Crucial.com.

Well firstly if you have an external monitor socket try out a different monitor this will tell you if your screen has failed,then it could be your screen components or even the ribbon type cable that has failed-try pressing the power button down for more than 5secs if nothing happens,it really must be faulty/in need of repair--good luck!

    Unable to enter Asus 6850 BIOS


    I would start by resetting your bios settings to default; turn off your system, remove the side cover and gently pry out the board battery (round "button battery" such as cr2032). Leave it out for about one minute, and reinstall. Then see if you get a post screen.

    (ii) Turn on the computer.

    (iii) When the first screen displays:

    Can't get into the bios for a presario 4716


    This is what the Compaq site had to say about the BIOS utility for your system (Source: Compaq): • • • •You may have difficulty accessing the BIOS Setup utility screen, because you must press a specific key(usually F1) very quickly before the Windows screen appears. If you do not enter the BIOS Setup screen on your first try, repeat the following steps until you are successful.

    To open the BIOS Setup screen:
    1. Turn off the PC and wait about 5 seconds.
    2. Turn on the PC.
    3. When the first screen appears, press the F1 key on the keyboard. (You can press the key more than once.) The BIOS Setup Utility Main menu appears.
    NOTE: On certain Compaq Presario PCs (prior to 2002) press the F10 key at the logo screen to enter setup.
    4. Use the keyboard to navigate through the menus.
    You may need to remove the battery and then back in.

    Screen on Dell Inspiron 6000 turned sideways. How


    Power off the laptop.
    Power it on and tap F2 at the Dell logo. check if the screen is sidways in the BIOS or not. If it looks normal in the BIOS restart the computer and go to control panel and uninstall the Video drivers. Restart the computer. It will boot up with basic drivers. Install the video drivers and the issue should be fixed.
    If the display is side ways even in the BIOS try a BIOS update from support.dell.com and if you dont have an update reflash the BIOS with teh version availbale on the website.

    Acer One pc notebook black screen?!


    That is a problem of BIOS. U need to reset your BIOS.
    Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
    The AA1 has a built-in BIOS recovery routine, making it possible to flash the BIOS even if the system doesn't boot anymore. It's only meant for emergencies and may void your warranty, so use at your own risk.

    Follow every step carefully!

    First format an USB stick with FAT.

    Download the latest BIOS, and put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the stick. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD, that's important. Do not remove the USB stick.

    Turn the AA1 off, make sure both battery and AC adapter are connected. Press Fn+Esc, keep it pressed and press the power button to turn the AA1 on. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds, the power button will be blinking. Press the power button once. The AA1 will now initiate the BIOS flash, do not interrupt it under any circumstances. After a while the power button will stop blinking, and the AA1 will reboot shortly after. Wait patiently.

    The BIOS has been flashed and all settings reset to default.

    How do i get my siemens v2010 laptop out of hibernation.the screen has suddenly gone dark.the computer turns on and is fine, but you can only just see whats on the screen


    You might have to restart the computer if it is stuck in hibernation. The best thing is to go to your settings and turn the Hibernation setting and sleep settings off. Go into your display settings to find this. Also when your computer starts look for the BIOS option to show on the screen to check the BIOS and make sure it is turned off there. To get to the BIOS hit the DEL key or one of the F keys to get into the BIOS. Do not password the BIOS of your Laptop. This can cause a lot of problems if you forget this password. It can not be recovered easy.
