    Sounds like the laptop is hibernating. Has it always done this? what is the OS you are running? How do you get it going again?

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

Help please, just replaced lid on emachines d620, all went well, just turned it on and screen is completely black. The logo shows very feigntly as it powers up, boots up fine but completely black screen.


It sounds like the cord connecting the lcd screen to the laptops motherboard has been disconnected. You will probably have to disassemble the screen portion of the laptop and reconnect the power wires.

What to do if laptop screen is blank and the lapstop won't shut off


Try to unplug the power cable then flip the laptop over on its closed lid and on the back should be an access to the battery. Remove the battery for about 2 minutes replace the battery and power cable. It should reboot to a black white screen giving 3 choices. You'll have about 35 seconds before the computer auto selects safe mode. Go ahead enter safe mode after it completely boots in safe mode shut down computer completely, wait 30 seconds and hopefully it will start up normally. If it doesn't you may have an issue with the operating system which unless your computer savvy and have all of the computers original cds you'll need to take it to a reputable computer repair shop

HP laptop pavilion tx 1000. when i hit the start button the computer starts up but the screen stays black. i have to shut it down again using the power button and just keep turning it on and off till it...


I suggest you buy an external harddrive with 500 Gigs, Go to tigerdirect.com for good prices. As far as the screen being black. You could have damaged the video card, the video card is integrated on the motherboard so it would be costly to replace the motherboard. If the wireless card is integrated also on the motherboard, same problem. Just a tip for future refrences, Laptops are used for quick access to info and files on the move, estimated time of use about 40 minutes. If you need to use a computer longer than that I recommend you use a desktop. I have seen many laptops go to waste because of long term use at a time. First thing that goes is usually the memory or video card. I hope this helps you.

Toshiba Equium A210 Laptop and the screen keeps on going blank


Hi...I have had the same problem with my A210 laptop as well over the last year.The problem is sporadic and it would just happen out of the blue.My daughter has the same laptop and the same problem.The screen would go blank ,but you could tell the computer was still functioning somewhat in the background.The only way to fix it was to reboot and if you were working on anything it was lost.I also recently had another similar problem.I had the laptop set to go to sleep when i shut the lid.This worked great for a year or so.When i opened the lid the screen would come back on and i could continue using the computer where i left off.But recently when i opened the lid the screen would come back on for a few seconds then go blank ,just like it did as described in the first problem above.Not sure why as i had not changed any settings on my computer.It happened every time i closed the lid then opened it.A pain as had to reboot to get it back.Here is the fix my friend discovered.Click on the ATI icon in the taskbar and open up the CATALYST CONTROL CENTER.Make sure the advanced view is selected.Now choose "display options".Put a dot in "Detect whenever catalyst control center is opened",and leave the other 2 spots unchecked.( I had a dot in these 2 places ). Now apply the changes and close it out. I have had no problems since doing this with the screen going blank.Not sure why this worked ,other then the computer was getting confused along the way and shut off the screen.Just be aware that if you hook your laptop to a TV you will have to revisit the ATI setting and change them back.....Hope this helps...Dan

I JUST purchased a laptop (toshiba sattelite L300D) I put the battery in, I pluged the AC...and I start it up for its first time....but nothing appears on the screen.....not even a bios or whatever...the...


I would not even touch it, if you JUST purchased it take it right back.......if your having problems with it straight out of the box its prob. not a good sign........

If you dont want to take it back , take out the battery and put it back in...plug it in and start it up again....take notice if there are any power lights on the laptop that turn on , or if there is no response from the laptop at all.....

If there are no lights it may be a problem with the ac adaptor or the power supply inside the computer.....

If there are lights and nothing on the screen then the LCD is faulty.

Fujitsu Lifebook S Series. Screen shut down as normal while not active but failed to recover. Switching off / on screen stays black .. not a thing and no sound when switched on. bode5@optusnet.com.au


Hi there, try removing the battery from the back of it and also take out the RAM (if accessible). Leave it half an hour and then put the RAM and battey back in.

If this doesn't resolve the issue email me chris.best4@ntlworld.com

It may be a faulty switch.

Problems with My Monitor Screen.


Hi,
Sony vaios are very tempramental.
Did you drop or bang the machine, before this happened ?
There are a few suggestions.
1:) the screen catch mechanism is jammed.
Solution:- turn on laptop, using a small blunt screwdriver. where the laptop latch, goes into the laptop base. gently push the latch mechanism a few times, to see if it,s jamming.
2:) if the screen display shut off mechanism is under the actual laptop screen lid, push the small plunger, up down several times.
These are common likely causes.
3:) press and hold the power on button for 15-30 seconds, this is in case the system has gone into hibernate/sleep mode.
4:) ensure The battery is fully charged. And the laptop power supply is plugged in.
If none of the above work for you, you may need to take into a repair specialist.

Mike @ compurepair.
