If the laptop sounds like it is running and you have no display you can try to plug in an external monitor to it. (any computer monitor will work, just plug the data cable in to the blue VGA receptacle on the back or side of your laptop). Turn on your laptop and look at your function keys on the keyboard. One will have a monitor symbol (maybe F4). Push that function key to switch to external monitor. If it displays on the monitor then you know your computer is okay and that the problem is with your LCD screen. If there is no display then most likely you have a bad video chip on the motherboard and will have to replace the board.

My screen stays completely black when I turn it on but it is running and the fan is on.


Sounds like it has overheated and has damaged the display driver.
Try an external monitor before sending it away for a GPU reball.

On my laptop there is a small button near the hinge end that switches the display off when the top is closed. Make sure yours is coming up. It is something you can check easily.

My laptop doesn't turn on


Usually indicates a problem with the motherboard.

Try removing the battery, reseatting the memory.

If that doesnt' work remove the dvd-rom and also the hard drive.

We're just trying to get a display at this point ;)

Let me know what happens.

My toshiba A200 screen occasionally turns black and music also stops. When i try manually restarting my laptop, sometimes it works but most of the time it doesnt boot at all. Sometimes it doesnt even go...


This sounds like a hard drive is, or has failed. Either that or the RAM (memory has gone bad)
Did you let the laptop overheat? Was it left on for a long time? Or is this just an old machine ?
I would replace the hard drive, and reload the operating system, that is if you really want to keep the laptop. If that solves it great! Also, did you notice if there are any "beep" noises, or error messages when it acts up? Often times, you can go on the internet and find out what the messages mean.

Dell inspiron 1150 laptop black screen


Can you hear the Windows startup noises but can't hear it?

Does it work plugged into an external monitor? (Any good CRT or flat screen should work.


Be sure to plug in the screen before you turn it on.
If it doesnt output to the LCD automatically you may have to hit FN-F8 to switch to external.

If it works on external monitor you are just dealing with a screen problem of some sort - either a bad inverter or backlight in the LCD most commonly...

Let us know.
