Hi,

Drain it! You might be surprised that one day as you turn your computer on, it shows no display. It can be caused by electrical charges on the motherboard, I do not specifically know how it affects the display but in case this happens to you try to do a Power Drain.
>It's easy, first, press the power button for about 5 seconds (if the indicator light for power is still lit)
>Take the battery out from the laptop
>Unplug the AC Adapter if it is connected(for desktops, unplug power cord from the CPU/tower)
>Then press and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds.
>Plug power supply back into your system
>Turn it back on.

There goes your display once again.

Thank you for choosing FixYa! have a great day!

Hi ive got a dell studio laptop the laptop powers up but nothing comes on the screen. The screen is less than 12 months old


HI there.
Try this things first so that you can check if it is really the screen that's causing the problem,
While the computer is off, press D+POWER button and hold it for 5 secs, different colors should come up,
Make sure the computer turns on. You will know that if the power button lights up. Try to lug in an external monitor and see if display will come up,
If the display comes up, and the d+power did not display anything, might want to call technical support so you can get the screen replaced,
Have a good day!

MY Laptop Screen Is Dim It Will Not Show Bright


When you say that your laptop "screen is dim", do you mean that there is no light coming from your screen, but you can see images on it? or do you mean that there is light coming from the screen, just a very little amount?

If you can images, but NO light is coming from the screen, then the LCD backlight is dead, and it needs to be replaced.

If there is light coming from the screen, but it's very dim, then you'll need to find the screen brightness adjustment keys on your laptop. This is usually two keys. The first one is normally in the lower left corner of your laptop and should be a different color - like blue or purple, and will be labeled something like "Fn". The second key is normally in the function key row (F1, F2, F3, etc...) and has a symbol on it that looks like a sun or burst of light with an arrow. There's usually one for "brightness UP" and one for "brightness DOWN". Hold down the Fn key, and then press the "Brightness UP" key a few times to see if the screen brightens up. Good luck.
