Screen is black

Help, Laptop screen is black, no light at all. Powers up, WIFI light is on, battery lights is good, sounds like it is loading up but there is just a black screen. Of course it is out of warranty and Dell will not even speak to me.
Any ideas. Thanks

When you say sounds like it starting up, can you hear the Windows sound byte, or just the hard drive spinning and CD drive engaging?

Compaq turns on cap locklight on f12 light on and power light on black screen


Have you tested this laptop using an external monitor? If your laptop works good with an external monitor, it means your laptop screen is dead and needs to be replaced. If the external monitor displays black screen , it means there is something wrong with the GPU and or motherboard.

My laptop sounds like it's running but the screen is black and the green power light and the blue wifi light is on. If I disconnect the battery it sounds light it's off but the green and blue...


If the screen is black but it's making all the right sounds that you'd normally get when the computer was working, then you can, in all likelihood, connect the NC8000 to an external monitor, do a cold start, and work off an external monitor for now. And you have also isolated the problem to be "up top" (the screen area)

If it just turns on but outputs nothing to the LCD or the external monitor, then it's probably trouble. I'd remove the memory and reseat them. If that doesn't make a difference, then you'll have isolated the problem to be "down below" (the motherboard, in all likelihood).

Hope that makes sense...

Compaq CQ50 laptop powers on, but does not boot. Black Screen Lights on keyboard, lights on power jack port. White power light is on the power button. Fan Runs and the DVD runs but no response from DVD. No...


I'd try messing with the memory. Try booting one single stick in each of the slots.

I've noticed that this happens pretty frequently with certain hp / compaq models.

If you've already tried that you can try removing the cmos battery for 5 minutes but aside from that the motherboard has probably gone out :(

I hope it's under warranty!

2.If windows sound is there then this mught be the issue with display.

3.If there is no windows sound might be the issue with RAM so please get it checked.

Compaq V5005us is weird. Powers on with black screen and freezes


It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.

Power Light on but screen black


Try powering up with no battery connected. If that works then the battery may be faulty or too old.

Powers up but black screen shows


1st - Try pressing <Fn> + <BrithnessUP> keys a few times, (on HP <Fn> key is between <Ctrl> key and <Windows> key, <BrightnessUP> key is <F8> key and <BrightnessDown> key is <F7> key. If nothing happens try the 2nd one.
2nd - Plugin external monitor, (type and size doesn't matter). Turn on your laptop. If you can see desktop on the external monitor, your drivers are o.k., The problem is your laptop display, NOT the graphic chip.
