You will have to play around with the FN + (monitor toggle) key a few times. There are about 2-4 settings made, so you will just have to press it, give it a few seconds, and then try again until it comes back.

Then I would restart the computer just to make sure it works.

JUST KIDDING!

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.
(Right side, all the way to the back)

Or you can use the HDMI port, and use an HDTV.
The HDMI port is on the Left side.

Turn the monitor/TV on.
Turn the laptop on.
Does a display show on the external monitor/TV?
No?

Hold the Fn key down, and tap once on the F8 key.
The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
Go to what you are using as an external monitor. VGA monitor, or HDTV. Hold the Fn key down, and tap the F8 key until you get what you want.

Have a display on the external Monitor/TV?
Problem is NOT the graphics chipset.
Problem is the Video Cable, or LCD/Touch screen.

Post back in a Comment, as to the results of the external monitor test.

External monitor only works if I start windows vista in safe mode


First after you boot it up normally (not Safe Mode) can you move the mouse far to the left or to the right do you see the mouse. If you do see the mouse pointer you are running dual monitor mode and the laptop screen is set as the primary monitor. You have to run it in Save Mode and set the external monitor as the primary monitor. Hit the Start button then select Help+Support and in the search box enter "dual monitors". Read how to set up the primary monitor.

Second maybe you need to activate the external monitor. When laptops boot normally (not Safe Mode again) with a external monitor connected you have to hit the Fn (function) key (probably blue near Alt key) and some other number key (it probably has a blue monitor symbol on it) I'm not sure which one. This key sequence is a toggle sequence. In other words when you boot a laptop it goes directly to the laptop screen then the first time you do a Fn + number key combination it will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen the next time you push Fn+number key it will turn on both monitors (external and laptop screen) the third time it will turn on only the laptop screen and so forth.

Power is on but no signal output to the screen


The following applies to Acer Laptops. You did not specify the brand of laptop you had. If your laptop is not Acer, the specific keys mentioned may be different and you should adjust accordingly.

If the power indicator is lit but nothing appears on the screen - The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to save power. Press any key to turn the display on.
If pressing any key does not turn the display back on, check the following....
1. The brightness level might be too low. Press Fn and the right cursor key to increase brightness level
2. Display device might be set to an external monitor. Press Fn and F5 to toggle to the internal display
3. Backlight might be turned off. Press Fn and F6 to turn on the backlight.
4. If the Sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in Sleep mode. Press & release power button to resume.

Model acer travelmate 4000 nodisplay on lcd and external monitor


You say the trouble is with the keyboard. Can you attach an external keyboard via USB and see if you can push Fn key with F5 (I think it is the F5 key - try Fn with others - keep Fn pressed and repeatedly press the F5 or F6 etc.) several times to see if the screen toggles between LCD and external monitor. For this to work you will have to restart the computer after attaching the external keyboard. Press the start button until the computer goes off, and press again to restart.

Itf you ascertain that the trouble is with the 99.N7082.01D, make sure to try to fit it in correctly, or perhaps the Fn key has some dust or liquid in it so it does not function. Then you have to try to clean it from the inside after you disassemble.

I have a everex stepnote XT5000T and the it turns on but the screen stays black.what could be the problem?


It may be that the display output toggle has been set to "external monitor" ... try Fn+F3 .... to toggle it from your screen, to external monitor to both ... and see if the screen works.
If this doesn't work, connect an external monitor to your computer, and toggle it, to see if the monitor displays the screen contents. If this works, then it's possible that your LCD screen is faulty ("fried")

No display everything turns on windows loads but no display


We can further isolate the issue by connecting an external monitor to the notebook. If the display is fine with the external monitor, this clearly indicates that the issue is related to the LCD screen. Otherwise, it is due to the some other internal hardware.

You may follow these steps to connect the notebook to an external monitor.

1. Turn Off Computer.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the monitor to the monitor port on
the rear of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

* Switching the display to the external monitor

Press FN + F4 to toggle the display between the Notebook display and
External monitor.
