If you can see a faint image of the desktop under a bright light, then either the screen inverter or the screen has gone out. One or the other will need to be replaced.

    Inappropriate, are you kidding. I'm trying to help here. It may take a couple of tries to get it right. Not having the machine in front of me makes it rather difficult to get it right the first time. Try a different monitor, if the machine works properly, then it's a bad screen. If it's still black then you have a hard drive failure and will need a new hard drive.

    I know your machine is a laptop. Desktop is the general word for the screen with the icons on all computers, whether it's on a laptop or desk top computer. This desktop one word not two as in desk top computer. When I say try a different monitor, I mean hook up an external monitor to the laptop. External being a a desk top computer monitor. I realize that everybody doesn't have access to one, but if you do, this will tell you whether you have a bad screen or a bad hard drive. Yes the hard drive can cause this, but you need to find out whether it's the screen or not first.

How do i fix my LCD on my laptop?

this sounds like your laptop's back light system has a loose connection, try moving the screen around, if the lights flash, it has a loose connection.
Good luck!

Window doesn't come on

That question does not reference what exactly is going on. Please step through from plugging in power adapter to power from wall outlet and pressing the power button.

ie: 1) plug in power adapter (i see charging light)
2) pressing power (i see boot screen logo)
3) next screen (i see windows boot logo)
.... and so on...

When i putu the power cable on, the led light blink once and goes off. the screen is black. no fan is moving or any sound.

You should try to start your computer without the battery installed. If that doesn't work, you should try another power supply. If that doesn't either do the trick, it could be the motherboard causing the trouble.

My screen doesn't work, it is sleeping. What can I do ? After I took a rest my screen dit nothing. Whatever I trie, it doesn.t light up.

Try restarting your computer, If it happens again, try to find a pattern in the problem. If you can't restart, hold down the power button for a few seconds to do a forced shutdown.

Screen turns off

you have a bad inverter board, this feeds hi-voltage to the lamps that create the display. common for LCD screens
or the back light lamp.

hope this helps
