The monitor does not work on my 1 1/2 yr old laptop?
I turn on the computer and the buttons light up but I cannot see anything on the monitor. I have tried to remove the battery, I did FN F4 and nothing seems to work. I'm just wondering if it's worth repairing or just buying a new one, since I previously had lots of problems with the programming

That could be many problems. what your telling me is that u see the charge light when u charge it but when you turn it on nothing happens? this could be a number of things. I would hook up a monitor and see if anything shows up on the monitor if the laptop boots. if something does show up then its your laptop display cables that are bad.
--> First turn your computer off by pressing and holding down the start button. Next unplug the computer and then remove the battery. Press and hold down the start button for about 60 seconds. Release the button and plug in the computer. Press the start button and the display should return. Replace the battery. If this does not work, try it again up to four times. No results usually indicates a bad mother board. Hope this helps.
Maybe you got lucky and only the lcd inverter got fried. Try the steps below.
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.
There might be a problem with your display. This might be 1 of several problems, which i will go threw in a moment.
First of all, try to connect your laptop to a normal monitor with a cable, if it doesn't show anything at all, you are out of luck... but let's go threw the possibilities:
The flat (connector to the motherboard) is not properly connected or its damaged
In this case, the external monitor connected to your computer will work just fine, this is a minor problem, the cable is cheap it-self so, if your computer is still in warranty, take it to the support, they will fix it.
The liquid crystals on your monitor are damaged
Try lightly tapping the zone on the bottom of the monitor, does something happen? A computer monitor works by LEDs or Liquid Crystals, if they are damaged tapping the zone where the connectors are (typically the bottom and the top of the monitor) should make some color appear randomly. This is bad, the external monitor will work as well, but this a an expensive malfunction, if the computer is in warranty take it to the support, they will fix it, else, consider buying a new laptop, the monitor is almost the same price as the laptop itself most of the times.
Connected external monitor also black?
This mostly means your graphic card is damaged. If the laptop is in warranty, take it to support.
You can see something pretty faint and dark on the monitor?
This means one of 2 things. The back-light of your monitor is damaged. Recent laptop displays use a light to lighten the screen so you can see the monitor from every angle, if this light is damaged, the monitor will work but very dark... Try pointing a flashlight to the monitor, if you see something better, you have found your problem. Once again, warranty time, a back-light replacement is a bit costly...
Another, less problematic, issue is that if your computer receives an high voltage charge, it will automatically shutdown some circuits for safety the monitor is one of them. In this case, remove the battery, shutdown your pc and press the Power button for 30-60 seconds. This will make the computer discharge all current on the circuits. Let it rest for a minute or 2 and power it on again, if this was the problem it should be fixed now.
Hope this puts you on the way to find your problem.
Good luck! :)
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!
Power drain the computer by removing the battery and power adapter and press the power button for 1 minute. then insert back in the battery also the adapter to your computer and start the computer.
If the solution won't work
, try using flash light on the monitor,if you can see anything on your screen, possible backlight is the problem, however to isolate also the issue you may use an external monitor to check if you can have a video using other monitor and if not? you may contact the tech support of your system for possible mechanical failure.
The inverter inside the lcd panel is most likely your problem. Try removing the whole lcd screen from the laptop if you are capable and run it with the external screen to confirm. leave the lcd switch off (this lcd switch above the power button turns the lcd inverter on and off)
connect yr system to an external Monitor(CRT) if it comes up then yr problem might be from the inverter,backlight,screen etc.
but if it doesnt come up then yr VGA card may be damaged.
NB:u must be sure ur system is up n working by pressing the caps lock key to check if the caps lock led will light up. if it doesnt lite up then yr system isnt up n running . what yu do at this atage is to replace the ram n or processor then it should display normal.
hope this helps
