My monitor will not turn on

When I turn my notebook on, the monitor remains black.  I have only had the notebook for 40 days.  It showed no signs of trouble.  Yesterday, I turned on the computer and the screen remains black.  The power button will stay lit and I have to remove the battery to turn off the notebook.

Test it with another monitor to see if all is well and if you see things then there is a problem with the LCD.  Come back here for more instructions.

Tmy monitor shows the images only for 20 seconds, then it turns black.


Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.

All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.

All the lights turn on on the hp pavilion dv1000, but the screen remains black. Almost as if there was no power going to the screen. I have tried reseating the RAM and the HD. Problem still remains. ...


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if okay! there is a LCD problem with the laptop screen, causes! bad inverter board, or back light. If both show black! causes are Video Graphics Card that is part of the motherboard.

The screen remains black when computer is turned


maybe a hardware problem, on booting the pc, move the screen to every angle to see if there is a connection problem.
If so, then use your warranty if you have one.

Screen goes black


This indicates the LCD inverter in the display is dead. If you have any experience with computer repair, replacing an LCD Inverter can be easy enough; However, it may not be worth it for a 15" LCD; replacement inverters can cost anywhere between $15 and $40 - a decent used 15" LCD only costs about 40 bucks these days...

Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.

My monitor will remain black when notebook is powered up


Black uses much less power. It's a device for automation, so you really should not lavish the watts and attention on it unless it has to perform something truly novel.

If you really want to use the monitor though, you can use the function-key combination used to switch the display between internal and external displays.
