    My monitor goes on when I start the computer but the screen goes black after a minute or less. I can tell that the computer is still on because the green cpu light is working and i can see the screen very, very slightly.

Let's start by trying to narrow this down to either a screen problem or a problem with hibernation or other software or hard ware. If you have access to an external monitor, hook it up to your laptop. If the external works properly, then it's the screen or screen inverter. Now if it's doing the same thing, let's rule out software. Do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Now that you've ruled out software, if the problem persists, then you've got a hardware problem somewhere with or on the main board. Go into the bios and do a hard drive and memory test. If your machine doesn't have these diagnostic tools you can check the memory by removing it and trying one chip at a time. Then try removing the battery and starting. At this point, you have tested everything that you can test without some professional diagnostic equipment. Try this and let me know.

It really depends on what make or model as they seem to have different methods to get out of hybernation mode.

My laptop is not switching to AC mode even when plugged into Ac Power outlet. I work on battery mode and after full battery drain, the laptop goes into hybernation...once into hybernation it starts...


1. You may possibly have a faulty power supply adapter. Contact the manufacturer and see if there are any call backs on the power adapter for you laptop unit
2. you may also have a damaged connector at the laptop connection. This will require repair by a technician.

LCD is on...seems like backlight is not functional; when external monitor connected, boot-up and bios screen visible. After boot-up, screen goes to "power save" mode and will not return


Use the 'FN' key (blue coloured?) and one of the other blue-coloured keys to "toggle" the video:

1. LCD only
2. external monitor only
3. both LCD & external

After boot-up, Windows defaults to "LCD only", and so the external monitor goes to "sleep".

Screen dull & automatically goes into hybernate


The dim screen is going to be either the lcd or inverter. As far as constantly going into hibernation mode. go into power options and make sure where it says turn off monitor and turn off hard drive are set to never. If that doesn't work then that mean you might have a virus, trojan, etc on the computer.

Toshiba Satellite A55-S306 doesn't come out of hybernation


Turn the PC on, when it is booting up, keep hitting "F8" until windows boot options come up, choose "Safe Mode" and then once it boots into safe mode fully, go to the start menu and choose shut down. After it shuts down, turn it back on and it should go back into normal mode. From now on, don't use Hibernate, its buggy and has been since XP.

Locks up at the select user screen when booting up.


when did it stop working
look at your keyboard make sure it isnt locked or shutoff
usually needs fn key plus another key to turn it back on
or change anything.These keys would be located usually at the top of keyboard and there symbol will be the same colour as your fn key.
Did you upgrade your system
If you are still unable to get on I would do a recovery

Black screen


Yes, it could be stuck in hybernation


Or.. Check to See if the Lid Switch is Stuck Down... Some laptops have alittle Movable plastic pin that depresses when the lid is closed to turn the screen off... this can sometimes get stuck down to the board button.. causing the symptoms youre experiencing

Samsung V25 Laptop When it is powered up nothing is showing on the screen although the power light is on and you can hear a noise. This has happened before and it just came on.


One way to make sure the system is still working, remove the Batery, then plug the power adapter only and turn the computer back on, normally if the laptop goes into Hybernation mode and the battery is low on power this can happen. If that fixes the system then you can do a safe shutdown and re-install the battery and turn your laptop on and it should come on, the fact that you mentioned this has happened before makes me believe it is Hybernation issue. Good Luck.

Random Hibernation


this sounds like power settings options.

what i can suggest now is that......................

go to the Power Options in the Control Panel and do the following.

  • first uncheck the hibernate option on the hibernate tab
  • use your computer and see if the problem re-appears, go to the control panel and on the power option, select Never to all options when using battery or ac power.
cheers...............
