Evesham 8640 Laptop Screen Failure

Hello,
On initial start up screen appears fine but then looks like has shut down.
You can still see icons, folders, etc but very dark.
Have plugged in external monitor and works fine.
Backlight failure rather than whole screen??
Can anyone help?

Cheers,

    I have the same problem. If the room is not too bright you can still just make out what is on the screen! The problem seems to be occurring most often in battery mode, but it does happen on AC power as well. Putting the PC on standby and resuming usually solves it, if only temporarily (very temporarily, in some cases). I have not found driver updates, or any settings that would explain this...

Most likely the backlight has failed however replacing the backlight is impractical and the screen should be replaced.

Startup fails to complete properly


When on the screen, and you have no icons hold control(ctrl) down and shift key and press escape(esc) your windows task manager should appear, goto the applications tab, at the bottom goto the tab New Task and left click, another window should appear with a text bar, type in the text bar explorer.exe and click ok, all the icons and your normal screen should reapear.

If your screen goes back to normal goto the start bar and goto run or search and type "regedit".
When the regedit window appears left click the " + " sign next to Hkey_local_mechine the the plus sign on software, scroll down to Microsoft folder and click the plus sign, scroll down to Windows nt folder and click the plus sign, the plus sign on Current version folder, then scroll down to winlogon folder and left click on the folder icon, on the right hand side of the screen look for "shell" double click on the icon and delete everything in the text bar and type explorer.exe and click ok and exit out of the window, restart the pc and everything should be back to normal.

pls post back and tell me what happens.cheers.

The laptop loads up, lets me sign in, then goes blank, no icons


Try booting to the safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in via the safe mode. If you can't, try booting to your Windows CD, go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
If you still can't log in, try running diags see if the hard drive lists a failure.
if no hardware failure found, there and none of those solutions work, then re-installing windows will likely be the final resolution

My laptop screen is flickering


That could be ths connector that connect the LCD to the Motherboard in the laptop. Ive seen something similiar wherein i took down the screen, cleaned up the connectors and it worked like new...... for a few weeks then it went back and started he flickering again. We finally fixed the problem by replacing the screen. Apparently the connector behind the screen was giving trouble. Have someone check the cable from your LCD to the board but I think you might need to fix the connector or replace the LCD screen. Regards, babb
