Using my notebook with a desktop flat screen

I use my Compacq V2000 with a desktop flat screen to help my posture and when I close up the lid it goes into stand-by because the flexible on/off switch is depresssed. Is there any way I can circumvent this?

Open display properties (windows xp), select power options (I believe within the appearance, or screensaver tab) power scheme settings - change settings for when you close the lid of your laptop.. set it to "do nothing"

Lid switch shorting somewhere. In this model there is no pin that I can ses. But after removing bezel it flickers but I need the location of the lid switch to check. When opening lid slowly it sometimes...


Probably not a lid switch related problem. In the more modern Toshiba's, the lid-close switch is generally located either above the keyboard area or underneath the front end of the palmrest (towards you), and the lid-close function is activated by a magnet located either above or below the screen. Best way to check if the lid-close function is working properly is to use Toshiba's power management to set the system to go to either stand-by or hibernation upon lid-close - and if the computer goes to stand-by or hibernation when you shut the lid, then that part is functioning properly.

A better, more detailed and precise description of the problem with the screen will probably help in addressing the real problem.

Most electronic stores sell wall mounting brackets. There are several types. one mounts the LCD screen flat to the wall with a limited range of tilt. Another type mount the LCD screen on an arm that allows tilt and swing movements.

sounds like the backlight has gone....test with an external monitor....if the external monitor works without any problems...the backlight has gone...better to get a professional to do this as its kind of fiddly and involves taking the screen apart

Lid Switch


Are you referring to the switch that turns off the LCD screen when the lid is closed?

The switch may be attached to the mother board, in which case, advance soldering skills may be needed.

Are you sure the switch is bad? I believe you can actually change the power settings to force the LCD to remain on, even with the lid closed. Perhaps that warrants a look.

Black screen


Yes, it could be stuck in hybernation


Or.. Check to See if the Lid Switch is Stuck Down... Some laptops have alittle Movable plastic pin that depresses when the lid is closed to turn the screen off... this can sometimes get stuck down to the board button.. causing the symptoms youre experiencing
