My laptop lcd issue

Thank you for your response to my problem! I have a bit more information this time. After starting it and turning it off several times, it finally started up. The LCD display seems to be fine.

So the pc finally starts up, but, it freezes up very often. I'm not referring to the type of freeze up associated with viruses and spyware. It seems as if the pc actually crashes. If I turn it off and turn it back on, it will still sometimes not display anything on the screen (by the way, when nothing is displayed on the screen, the pc does not boot up). The times that it DOES display something on the screen and starts to boot successfully, it ALWAYS freezes up at one point. It freezes up even in the middle of booting windows.

I also noticed the bottom of the laptop is VERY hot, so I'm thinking it could be constantly over heating (but I can hear the fan is working), do you think that could be the issue?

Take the battery and power supply out and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This will reset your hardware settings. Your backup battery isnt your problem. Does your battery light turn on when charging? Does your keyboard lights light up when it runs for a second (try pressing caps lock)?

SOURCE: display flickers on boot. then goes black

Before making any decision on whether it's a hardware failure, please try and boot from a CD or DVD (recovery disc). If it does successfully boot from an external disc - and there is no flickering problem, then the hardware parts are okay. In that case, please go to this link: http://lifehacker.com/5413223/how-to-fix-your-relatives-terrible-computer?skyline=true&s=x for more information on what to do when you can't enter into your operating system and how to fix malwares that might be causing the flickering. If you find my ideas satisfactory, please do rate me. Thanks

SOURCE: sony vaio vgn-fs8900p isn't booting

Most likely your hard drive has gone bad. It could be your RAM too. I know that you said you checked your ram one stick at a time. What if both sticks are bad? I would get some cheap (low MBs) sticks of ram that are compatible with your computer to see if your computer will start to run right with those in.

Why is my acer aspire 5050-5459 continuously restating I can't do anything because when I do it restarts.


The default is for automatic restarts which does not let you see the error message.
  • Power off your computer,
  • turn it on;
  • immediately hit F8 several times a SECOND;
  • You'll get a screen that will have a number of options, one of which is turn off automatic restart. Check that.
  • Now you will get a "blue screen" message that will help diagnose the real problem.


Hope this information will help.

I have a problem with my laptop: when i turn on


The video information to the LCD screen is lost. This can be a faulty video cable/connector or a faulty LCD screen.
The graphics card on the Acer is OK, that is why when you connect a LCD monitor to the video port on the Acer you see the normal Windows images.
Try re-seating the video cable connector on the motherboard.
If this doesn't fix your then the LCD screen is faulty.
Replacement screen are available on the Internet. Try this company for replacement screen.

Dell latitude D600 display blacks out, showing just a ghost image


Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is the backlight.

If you see a very dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Screen is Black even when the machine is on


Good day,

since you can still hear that your laptop is starting, the system is still fine, hence, we can isolate the problem to several causes that would make your screen turn black, it might be due to a loose connection between the video card and your screen, the cable connection to your screen, or your screen might be busted already.

if you are the techie type of gal, you can dismantle your laptop yourself and isolate the problem. be sure that the warranty is already expired since you will automatically void the warranty if you open your laptop yourself. however, i suggest that you contact a competent technician to check the problem as it might also include other problems that might have caused the black screen (software driver for your video card perhaps).

i hope this will help
