Hi there, I have problem with a laptop, I have a Compaq Evo N800W, and nothing comes up on the screen. It shows up on a second monitor using the VGA socket, an the backlight comes on, as I can see the screen light up, but nothign is transmitting to it, have also checked connections and are ok. Is this something that you may know about?

    Hi, thanks for your replies, the second monitor is just a CRT, and the laptop currently has no drivers or desktop at the minute as bought it off a friend without a hard drive so all I can do is boot into bios using the CRT. Could this be the reason for it not showing up with it missing a hard drive?
    I have also checked all connections and carefuly inspected the LCD, but all i have is a backlight glow.

    I also read that the graphics card mite be faulty even though the VGA socket works but not sure if this is true.

    many thanks in advance

If you get to see your desktop screen on your external video or monitor chances are your lcd screen can be dead.try to toggle the switch mode from your external monito to your lcd screen and try also to increase the brightness of your lcd. if nothing works the last option is open the top of your computer and try checking the cable. reseat the cable. after doing that nothing happens... replace lcd

    wow no drivers and no hard drive... ummm your right you will need drivers for your video... but windows has its own native drivers which should allow your screen to come up with an image... try booting to safe mode and select Enable VGA Mode

Sounds like the video driver (hardware) for the lcd is bad. Is the second monitor a LCD?

My computer will turn on , but nothing will show up in the display.


power if off and when you power it back on, start hitting the F8 button every couple of seconds. If you can get it booted into Safe Mode, try restoring it back to a date that it was working. Also look for a blue VGA port. If there is one, plug in another monitor with a VGA cable to see if it will display.

Screen does not come on when I switch my compaq evo n610c on ? Any Ideas ?


If you see a dark screen meaning look deep into the screen if you see a logo thru it then it means that the life of the bulbs is done you have to replace the screen is cheap on ebay i got mine there and it works fine to take apart is also easy. But before you spend your money attache an external monitor to it from the VGA on back if it show on the screen then yes your screen is bad if it does'nt then the board is bad.

I have a Compaq Presario laptop with a broken


Hi:
Just plugging in the monitor to your VGA port on the laptop won't make it display. You have to toggle to the exteral display, or both. Usually you have to hold down your function key, and then hit the external display key. It could be F1 thru F8, depending on your laptop model. Mine is F6. If you toggle thru the modes, your CRT should display . The missing pin is no concern!

My hard drive I can't Format


It depends how your tring to format it. If your operating system is running on the same drive it will fail. You would need to boot off another OS or boot of the XP / vistra CD and format it via the installation wizards.

Laptop dispalys to monitor but laptop panel cannot be activate


Hi,

Thanks for all the details..

The issue seems to be with the video card drivers here...

Go to www.hp.com/suport and download the latest video card and the chipset drivers

before you download ...uninstall the nvidia chipset or any display software from program and features.

after you have installed the software.. go to the nvidia control panel > setup multiple monitors. and browse throughout the options >
It should be dual display and not extended display.

Also try with a new user profile...

Hope this helps..
Regards,
Anup
