First when you attache the Ac adapter are there any lights do you see any lights? sometimes there is a light by the connector (jack) where you attach the AC. Otherwise this might be a mobo problem. Have you try to attach an external monitor? The top of the question mentions a desktop E520 but below points to a LCD. I am assuming a laptop. If you have another laptop with the same LCD screen then you can take the suspected bad LCD and place it in the good laptop. Also you can take the good LCD and place it in the bad laptop. First read the first lines of the preliminary troubleshooting.

Screen is blank, it wont come up nor display anything but the power button works.


Try connecting an external monitor to it. If it display correctly, than check your display setting to ensure you have your laptop monitor as your default. If those setting are correct than you will need to open your laptop case and check make sure the connection did not come loose from LCD monitor to your motherboard. Use a small flat head screw driver to popup a cover right above your keyboard to get to the connection. If the connection are good than it may be a bad LCD screen or motherboard.

There is a white blank screen when i turn on


A white blank screen usually means that there is no data reaching the LCD. This can be caused by a bad video card, bad cable, or bad LCD. Rarely, the cable is just unplugged on either the back of the LCD or on the system board (or video card if separate).

Laptop display goes blank after a second, not lcd inverter


I have had a similar issue with an LCD monitor and the issue was not with the inverter itself but the backlights. They can go bad and short (which is where my issue was. Once they were removed the screen was working again (the lights needed replaced).
Hope this helps!

Blank LCD screen on Compaq n800c laptop


First instinct would tell me that your LCD has gone bad. A refurbished replacement LCD should run around $300-$325 give or take.

Keep us posted, good luck

Satellite 1115 blank screen at start up.


Try using an external monitor. If an external monitor works then the issue may be backlight if not then the issue is the LCD screen. the way to test that is after you have used an external monitor to verufy booting and the the system works. then if the machine is out of warranty you remove the bezel anf the screws holding the lcd in place. lean the lcd forward. with a flash light on turn your system on and flash the light through the display if you see your post and or windows with the flashlight then the baclight is bad. if not lcd is bad. If you can not get teh external monitor to work, then your motherboard is bad or graphics card.

Laptop HP Compaq nx9420 Screen goes Blank


From the Symptom you described, it seems like the thin video cable's connector is loose and is barely connected to the video adapter on the motherboard. You won't be able to tell until you remove the Keyboard and/or the Palmrest to check it. Also, there is a slim possibility that the Laptop has knocked something loose and is going into sleep mode. Normally, a Laptop user can configure it to go into Sleep mode or 'Hibernate'. These settings can be found in the Control Panel under 'Power Settings'. http://www.Computer-Repair-Today.com
