Have you Pressed the Fn + Monitor key to switch monitor modes?
Can you see any picture at all on the notebook screen - even if very faint? If so then screen backlight has gone - this could be repaired but would cost a bit for the spares (it is high voltage so don't try it yourself!).
Cable to screen may have come loose if it is completely dead/black. You could try to take it apart and reseat the cable into its socket (but quite tricky to do).

My dell lcd moniter display blank white screen only?


This should be posted in monitors. Does the screen display anthing during boot up of the computer? Does it appear that the computer is booting? If the computer seems ok, then plug the monitor into another computer. If it works there, then it is something with the computer, and we will need a bit more information to work with.

Hope this helps

My Dell Latitude D630 has a blank screen.


Check your hardware light on the exterior of your computer and see if it is lit and blinking. If it is, you have an operating system, but just can't see it. That tells me it may be several things:

1. The LCD cutoff switch is in the off position
2. Toggle (Fn) the display to the internal settings of the LCD panel. It may be set to display an external monitor only
3. Plug in an external monitor. If it doesn't display on the external, after pressing the Fn key you have a failed video adapter. If it does display on the external it is most likely a back light or inverter failure.

Hello,

It is definitely possible you have a damaged screen component. At this point I would recommend taking it to a service center or call them and have it shipped for repair. You may even have a local computer repair shop that could help you out and maybe save some money :)

The problem has been narrowed down by connecting it to the TV. We know the laptop works fine otherwise except for the screen.

Regard,

Monitor power problem


Hi ,

Kindly check when the display cable is removed from the system and monitor powered on do you get any "Out of Sync Error". Then the monitor is fine and issue with the system or Display card. Check if your system boots and also unscrew the system and clean the Display card and re-insert. If its an on board card then just do a preventive maintenance of your system as it can happen due to loose connections also.
Regards.

If you get the boot image on your screen then you screen is working correctly unless there's something that you not explaining. You can try an ext. monitor if you think it is something related to your LCD screen not woring during boot up. If the ext monitor not showing your laptop to boot then you have problem with your OS and may need to get it repaired or restored.

My Dell xps m1210 has a blank screen when I turn it on. The hard disk spins (and works fine -- I pulled it out and hooked it up to another system), the indicator lights go on, and trying to send the video...


You said you hooked up your hard drive to another system, so I'm going to assume everything displayed properly and all that. You might not necessarily have a dead motherboard. It could very well be that your display is shot, which is $200+ to replace.

One way that might help you tell if its a motherboard problem or not is when you turn on the laptop if the hard drive indicator doesn't blink the way it normally does when it starts up, then it's probably a motherboard problem.

Hope I was of some help

Blank HP w1907


If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

Dell Inspiron 9400 display goes blank after a few minutes


If the issue occurs in the safe mode, then I'm suspecting a failure of the LCD backlight. (It warms up and quits) Also see if video stays on using an external monitor. If it does, then the LCD is most likely failing.

If video goes out on an external monitor as well, then the Video card is failing due to overheating. Make sure all vents are free of dust (Clean with canned compressed air) and the all fans are functional (Run the fan test in diagnostics) If fans check up, then video card is failure point. If fans fail diags, replace affected fan 1st

IPC laptop has blank screen


All your doing in the bios is changing the boot up sequence to the drives?. If it was FN key and F5 similtaneously then Im baffled. In my machine its the FN and F4 together or at the same time and the screen goes back and forwards or both stay on.
