Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

Tohiba l300 completely blank screen


If the screen is always blank, even on startup , before loading Windows, than this is probably an hardware fault.

Try unplugging the laptop and removing the battery at the same time, wait 5 minutes, then put the laptop together. This will drain power and reset the laptop.

If that does not work, and you get no pictuer under any circumstance , then there is a fault.

If the screen is black with no light , then it is either a faulty inverter or a problem on mainboard.

If the screen is all lit, but is blank with no signal, then it is often because of a bad LCD ribbon cable , but can be again the video chipset on the motherboard.

Try connecting to an external monitor, if it works then problem is restricted to LCD/inverter and ribbon cable, if it does not work on external monitor is usually a bad video chipset on motherboard.

Blank Screen


First, confirm that it is the screen itself. Connect the video output to a known working monitor and then power on your Thinkpad. if the known working monitor behaves the same way you can rule out the laptop's monitor as the source of the problem. This may be the BGA, Ball Grid Assembly, leadless soldering problem related to video chips on the motherboard, but first test the monitors.

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away

Laptop won't boot up properly


Connect your computers to an external monitor and press the appropriate F key combination (Shift + F7) to switch video output to the monitor. If you see an image on your monitor you have a bad LCD screen or back light inverter. If not you need a new motherboard. Guy that gets ticks, you need a new motherboard anyway.

Blank screen on start up on Acer Extensa 4620


Did you switch displays to the external video? Try hitting the Fn key and whichever function key at the top of the keyboard has a little TV screen icon over it at the same time.

Labtop Screen Remains Blank


connect to external monitor to rule out bad video card. (remember most laptops have to toggle between internal and external display by using the <FN>+ <F?> key, mine is FN F5.)

If the external works then the problem is
  1. Inverter board or
  2. TAB welds at LCD or
  3. CCFL Cold Cathode Florescent Lamps (backlights)
