Sounds like the drop damaged the screen. To check this, connect it to an external monitor. If everything works properly, then the screen is damaged and will need replaced. If it doesn't work properly, then a motherboard component has been damaged, and you will most likely want to take it in to have a professional diagnostics done.

Why is there no display?


hi

can you plug in another monitor to the video plug on the side of your laptop?

if the monitor works but your laptop screen stays dark your laptop screen needs to be replaced .

If the monitor is also dark then the LCD screen is ok but the inverter needs to be replaced

Hi I have a samsung n130 it has been dropped on one corner which has broke the lid the laptop powers up to hundreds of coloured lines. Is this the screen or the grahpics chip Thanks


Ask yourself which is MORE likely:

The screen got damaged when the computer was dropped

OR

The graphics chip got damaged when the computer was dropped

Think about that for a few seconds, then go order a new computer screen.

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS of the laptop is telling you that it can't load Windows because it's too corrupt There's nothing more you can do apart a full reinstall. Use the recovery disk that has came with the laptop when you bought it.

Vertical colour lines on laptop screen, when laptop moved screen sometimes works ok is it a big problem/


HI:
If you can test your laptop, by connecting an external monitor to it, that will tell you if it is a screen problem, or a video problem. If you get a good picture on another display, you have a problem with your lcd or inverter.

Pink Screen on a Compaq Presario V6000


Ok, to resolve this you will need to troubleshoot a little further.
Get hold of an external monitor and plug it up to the laptop, switch screens with the keyboard if you have to, if the colour is still the same then i'm afraid its the video card thats faulty and you will have to have it looked at

Good luck
