Check the hard drive activity light; if it is active at power on, look at the display from an angle to see if some ghosting of images is visible. If so, the back light for the display or its inverter may have failed.
If you have a friend you can borrow a monitor from or use briefly, connect it to the VGA (D-15 connector) to see if you have any video output. If you still see nothing, turn off the power and access the memory in the laptop. Remove and return any memory cards and try it again.
If you still have no boot, it will need technical help since this could indicate a failed motherboard or CPU.

We can't see LED light chip directly


Post the laptop manufacturer name, and model number.
The model number is on the Bottom of the laptop.

Post in a Comment.

Plus add additional info about what are you referring to?

Offhand, I would guess a reference to the LED backlighting on the laptop.
If this holds true, and you have no Backlight, the normal procedure is to replace the LCD screen.

With most laptops utilizing LED's as a Backlight, the LED backlighting is incorporated into the LCD screen assembly, and that's why when the LED backlighting goes bad, the LCD screen itself is replaced.

Laptop broken screen... plugged in Dell monitor,still doesnt work


You can switch to an external monitor or data projector by two methods. 1. Connect the external monitor to the laptop's video port, power up the external monitor first and the laptop. The video information will automatically switch to the external monitor. 2. If you power up the laptop first then you can switch the video output to the external monitor by pressing the Fn key and one of the Function keys, depending upon your make and model laptop. You can also toggle between the external monitor or both LCD screen plus the external monitor or back to LCD screen only by pressing the Fn key plus one of the function key. Here is a list of key combinations for some of the laptops :- IBM ThinkPad = Fn + F7 HP and Compaq = Fn + F4 Toshiba = Fn + F5 Dell = Fn + F8

I turn on my Laptop and the fan will spin and the Hard disk light will turn on as well as the power light (obviously) But the Hard drive doesnt spin up and the screen stays blank no lights no nothing i...


Remove all of the ram, turn the laptop on if it does not beep you have a bad motherboard. If it beeps replace the memory and remove the hard drive turn on the laptop and see if it posts. If it posts without the hard drive then the hard drive is bad. Otherwise it is probably still a bad motherboard.

Dell 1525 lights flash when power button is pushed but no


Even if the hard drive is bad you should still see the normal bios post screens and then an error message saying "no boot device found" or something similar. If you have a monitor in your home you should attach the vga cable from it onto the vga connection on that laptop. Then turn on the laptop and see if you get a picture on that monitor. If you do then either the laptop lcd inverter is bad or the lcd itself is bad. If you don't get a picture you may have to press a toggle button or buttons on the laptop to switch to the external lcd. Usually this is Fn plus another F button on the top.
