Question about Toshiba Satellite A215-S7422 Notebook

1 Answer

Screen goes black

Suddenly, while I'm using the computer (I think it happens only when I'm on line, but I am not completely sure about that), the screen goes black, and the blue power light is on. To get the computer to work again, I have to shut it off by keeping the power botton pressed for a few seconds, then turn it on again.
The computer is new (baught in February), Windows Vista with all recommended updates are on. This problem shows up while it's plugged on to the outlet, or on battery.

My acer note book screen has gone blank it sounds like it loading up but the screen then goes black then goes blank with thin lines in screen


Hi,


This may cause by an electrical charge in the motherboard itself,Im not really sure how it affects the display of the computer.There's also a possibility that the problem is with the LCD cable or the LCD itself. Please follow this method since it usually fix such problem like that,


1.Removed the battery then unplugged the AC adapter


2.Press and hold the power button or the ON/OFF button for at least 30 seconds


3.Connect the power supply back to your computer then turn it back on.


4. Check if you will see any difference.


5. If nothing happens, try to press and hold Fn and F2 on the keyboard.


If nothing happens, there is a possibility that the problem is with the LCD or monitor itself, maybe it will need a replacement...


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa...

Dell latitude D610. Screen goes black. External Monitor OK.


Make sure you have not accidentally used the FN+F5 key
That combination sets the laptop to use an external display.

If using that does not give you a display take a small torch (flashlight if in USA) and shine it at an angle on the laptop screen.
If you can see any sort of picture you would be looking at replacement of some minor parts to the laptop screen

Hope this gives you the information you need. If not add any extra information you may have and lets see if we can FixYa

I turn on my computer and the Acer screen comes up where you can do the F2 then after that goes off it goes black with a white line in left hand corner then nothing happens after that.


sounds like a boot error, usually caused by moving files you shouldnt move or viruses deleting important files, in either case... you should be able to do a complete system restore, when the screen comes on, press the f2 button or whichever one says to push for the e recovery manager, select system restore, not just a restore point, and follow the recovery wizard, hope this helps.
