My mx7515 screen stays dark after I power it up. I can hear the internals working but no screen. I tried hooking up a monitor to it, and that came up with no picture.


First: Make sure after you connected the external monitor to press a combination of key( Fn +[1-9: check for a small picture of LCD monitor] ). If after this no image is displayed on the external monitor then you may need to replace your motherboard. Some local computer shops may be able to fix it. The reason you are having this problem is because the video card is dead.

My dell inspiron laptop 1000 screen turns dark every few seconds. if I close the computer half way and open it,it stay bright for a few seconds and turns dark again

This is your back light on your lcd display, To prove that have a flash light handy when it goes dark point the flash light at the screen and you should see the screen and that would mean right there you got a back light going out or the inverter that powers it is going bad. Etherway if this is not your area of work you need to tech it to a computer tech local to have it repaired.

Thanks for being considerate with your ratings and feedback today.

Toshiba A105 - S4334 laptop,imediately on startup the screen goes so dark I can't see anything but a shadow of the screen,if I clsoe lid and open again I can see the display but only for a few seconds.Is...

Hello wall flower hi, when you turn on the laptop, did you see the start up screen clearly? can you read words on the screen, and then it goes dark? If this is the case, check first the Fn key with the corresponding display for projector, (usually Fn+F5) this combination key is used to display the content of your computer to the LCD or Projector, IF not such a case, it may be problems with your laptop inverter board that powers the backlight. Check your bios settings also.

The hard drive is good all the lights light up but screen stays blank

Did you accidentally push the Function + (whatever) keys that switch the video out to an external monitor screen?

If the backlight of the LCD screen went bad - you could turn off all the lights - need a very dark room - you could still see the contents of the screen.

My laptop does not display the creen stay black,

I got two suggestions for ya. First, check to see if the lid switch that tells the screen the lid is open is stuck closed. If it's not, chances are your backlight is bad and unfortunately you would have to replace your lcd screen.

Laptop screen goes dark.

Is your computer setup to go to sleep when you close the lid?

Click on start -->control panel-->power options and then check the option that says choose what closing the lid does. You have to change this setting to 'do nothing' if you want the computer to stay on when you close the lid.

My computer is on but the screen is dark...

Hi, sure is that the FL inverter has been damaged of the LCD, this one is located in the low part of the screen and you must remove the mask of the screen to be able to access it.

Screen stays dark

How long have you had your computer? Mine has been doing this. The battery has died out over time, and now I think the adapter is too. It's kind of kinked near where it plugs into the computer (probably from the weight of the chord constantly being pulled down). It just gets a bad connection, a little less power, and goes dim like that. If I readjust the connection and turn off/turn back on the computer, it usually comes on bright again. But I ordered a new battery

No visual display

It sounds like your graphics card is shot. If your graphics card is a dedicated graphics card, you might be able to get it fixed/replaced; if it is embedded, then you are probably going to have to buy a whole new display screen.
