Q: HP laptop will turn on but the screen will not turn on and r...

Hello everyone, I have an HP Envy j100t which I purchased in 2014. ever since yesterday it's been starting but the screen remains pitch black, no display at all. It won't get to start up page, just remains a blank dark screen even though the power light is on and there's no battery issue because it was on charge all night and the AC adopter is still in. I keep on having to get to get to the BIOS recovery screen, letting that update, and then it proceeds to restart. However when it restarts, it never gets to start up and there is the same dark screen- no display. I have to always update BIOS, take out the battery and AC adapter, put them back in, and then it will start. Or sometimes even that whole process might not restart it. Please help!

Hello Folks,

I'm not sure if my issue is with hardware (possibly MB?) or graphics card, so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong section. The first problem I was having was random blue screens of death that displayed graphic card driver issues. I was able to remedy that by updating my graphic drivers and have not had an issue since.

However, ever since then I have been running into another hardware or graphics-related issue that is random and completely stumping me. What is happening is, I will be on my computer, leave and turn my monitor off, and (randomly) when I come back to use my computer again, when I turn on the monitor there is no signal and a black screen (e.g. when I turn my monitor on my desktop will pop up and the light on my monitor will turn blue, when it doesn't turn on there will be a black screen and the light on the monitor stays yellow as if it is idle). I have tried swapping out the monitor to see if that was the issue and the same problem persists, so it does not appear to be my monitor or VGA cables.

The only way I can temporarily fix this issue is to reboot/restart my computer and viola! The monitor works again and I can see everything. This issue is very random. Sometimes I can go weeks without an incident, other times this is happening a couple times a week. I honestly don't know if it's my motherboard or video card or what. My PC isn't overheating, I'm not overclocking, and all of my drivers are updated.

I'm not sure what... Read more

I have a older Imb laptop modle T23 computer and when I shut it down rather then using standby it takes several times trying to get it to come back on. I press the little round on/off button and the (z) button lights up and I hear the fan turn on and all of a sudden a series of beeps, and the screen won't turn on. The beeping is like 8 beeps, then stops but still nothing come up on the screen. Completely black! So i turn off the computer again, and turn on same thing. I continue doing this like 30+ times sometimes more sometimes less, then finally the beeps dont start and the screen is working. So needless to say its still working in the mean time, but its just such a pain if I shut it down. Does anyone know what may be causeing this and how I may be able to fix this problem. For now I am just going to continue using standby but when I have updates sometimes i need to shut down...Well hope you can help me! Thanks in advance! ~Nicole

My laptop was working perfectly the other day, i went to sleep leaving it on and i guess it went into hibernation. Someone turned it off before i awoke, and when i turn it on now, it loads up but the laptop screen doesnt appear to come on. I tried taking the battery out and holding down the power button for 60 seconds. I also cleared the CMOS. It still will not come on--I'm not sure what to try now. Perhaps it should be known that i normally have an external monitor hooked to the laptop as well.

A:Laptop screen won't turn on

This can be several problems. My diagnosis: The LCD back light could be giving out and/or the operating system could be shot. If the laptop doesn't have reinstallation discs then I suggest buying a new operating system(Recommend Windows XP Pro) If the reinstallation of the operating system doesn't work. It's time to replace the LCD back light or better yet the whole screen. Which if I'm correct could be costly. It might be best to just buy a new laptop or hopefully you have a warranty and can return it for a new one. I hope that helps.

Hi there @Gleed,  Welcome to the HP Support Forums! I read your post and wanted to reach out to you to let you know that I will do my absolute best to help you get the display on your HP Pavilion 17-e067cl Notebook PC to come back on.  When we have come to a resolution, please share what worked for you with others by marking that post as an Accepted Solution. Note: please make sure that the AC adapter cable is not plugged into a power strip, surge protector, or secondary power source. It should be directly into a wall outlet. Please note remove any and all USB devices. Disconnect all non-essential devices, as these could cause some issues. You had mentioned that the computer is on, but the display remains blank. Please take a look at the Computer Starts but Screen Remains Blank document. If the notebook screen remains black or blank, and there are no error messages on the screen, then the troubleshooting provided should help determine if this blank screen is caused by a problem with the display.  The troubleshooting Black Screen Displays with No Error Messages During Startup or Boot document has more specific detailed steps to be able to perform the hard reset and see if you can get an external display to work.

Hey guys, I know there's a bunch of 'laptop won't turn on' threads around but none seem to apply to my laptop.
Basically, I have an HP dv2915nr Pavilion and the case for the screen finally broke from its hinges (the left side first then the right two months after). Not wanting to try to get replacement parts for it - it's a three year old computer I got at a clearance sale, I decided to just get rid of the screen and use a spare monitor I have.
I took off the adapter and battery, carefully removed the screen, microphones, and webcam and left it there for about five hours.
When I came back, I attached the monitor, plugged in the adapter and battery, and the light on the power jack turned on, but when I tried turning on the computer it wouldn't do anything. No noise from the fan, nothing. The little light that indicates the computer is powered wasn't on either - just the one on the jack.

I don't really know what to do now. I assume it's something to do with the power supply? Thanks in advance for your replies and Happy Holidays!

I have a Compaq Notebook PC with Windows 7. I was using it the other night and i locked it as I always do, and I opened the lid the next morning and the screen was black. So I shut it down with the power button and turned it back on, but the screen was still black. I don't know what to do with it. I haven't even had it a year. I bought it February of 2010. I really need help, I have no clue what to do... Please help!!

A:My laptop will turn on, but the screen is black.

Well, you should of posted in Windows 7 forum, so I'll move it for you. But being it is less then a year old, and I've never heard of a laptop with less then a year of warranty, you should contact Compaq about getting it repaired. But things to check, is the brightness turned up? There should be a key on the keyboard that'll adjust the brightness levels. Also, most Windows laptops have an option to turn the screen off when connected to an external screen. Look for that button on the keyboard and cycle it a few times and see if your screen comes back to life. Also, find a monitor to plug into the video out port on the laptop and see if you get a picture on it.

I tried unplugging it, but it stayed on using the battery. Nothing happens when I push the power button. I know a black screen isn't a good sign.

A:HELP MY LAPTOP SCREEN WONT TURN ON

If you can use an external monitor to connect to it, see if that produces anything. If the external monitor doesn't work then it is a video card problem. If the external monitor works, then the laptop's LCD screen is dead. Either way, you need repairs done to it. That's one of the reason I don't use laptops, everything is in one piece, when one thing fails, you have to send the whole thing to the repair shop, whereas with a desktop, you can swap parts yourself.

Hi all

I have a problem with my fresh install of Windows 8.1. In the settings menu I have enabled the option to play a slideshow on the lockscreen and that when my PC is inactive it will show the lock screen instead of turning off the screen
For testing purposes I have set the screen turn off timer to 1 minute, but here's what happens:
After that one minute, the screen will dim slightly for a brief moment as if it wants to turn off the screen/go to the lockscreen slideshow. Then one minute later, it will do the exact thing again. Like it's being waked the second it wants to turn off the screen
Is anyone able to help me? It would be greatly appreciated

It would be better to make a Photo Gallery Screensaver and use that, just point it to the pics you want to use in the screensaver setup.

I think the very settings you used to set up the Lockscreen Slideshow are preventing it from Locking. I don't know if you can tell your system to go to a Lockscreen after a certain period, it's either a screensaver or OFF. I'll try to set this up on my test machine and see if the same thing happens.

Hello all,

I'm having trouble with my laptop. I have a 5 year old Toshiba Satellite. Last week when I had it on, the screen suddenly went off but the music I had on was still playing, I managed to get it on a few minutes later, but it then went pink and green like when you press your finger on an LCD screen.

Today I had it on, was working fine. Left it unattended, came back and the screen was a dark blue colour. I've tried turning it off, taking battery out, charger out, holding the start button for 30/60 seconds with battery out etc but nothing. I also forgot to mention that earlier this evening and the past few nights, it's taken a lot of jiggling to get my charger to be recognised on the laptop.

Does anyone know of the problem or even better, a solution? Won't show up when HDMI is plugged in on TV either.

Last i remember is i was playing a game and it shut down all of a sudden.
So i pressed the on button and it booted up and i could hear the fan and hard drive all working fine but the screen stayed black, i have checked the screen to make sure it wasnt just dim and its not just not working?

Please Help!

Im starting to get annoyed :dead:
 

A:My Laptop Screen Wont Turn On But It Powers Up

Have you tried connecting an external monitor (how to is in your manual)?

It may well be a component failure like an inverter board since you 'crashed' when it first happened.

Well, somehow I got the darkscreen problem fixed to where it will light up. Now, however, when the computer is turned on, it goes through the Window's XP page then before switching to the log on page, the screen goes dark and I have to hit Fn F7 to turn it on. I guess it thinks there is another monitor or something but there isn't.

I can't find how to change the booting procedure to fix this. I tried going into bios but hitting the delete key on startup doesn't seem to work on Think Pad T20's.

I know there is a simple fix to this but this simple mind doesn't know it and can't find it. Obviously this is a job for one of you incredible wizards.
Thanks as always

Re: Help !! Random pop ups/ ranom sites /= spware plzz helpp !!!
Let's try Last Known Good Configuration:

* Restart your computer.
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, start pressing the F8 key.
* In some systems, this may be the F5 key.
* Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.
* Use the up arrow key to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press 'Enter'.
* Login on your usual account.

Hi, Check if there's any change to this behaviour if you disable hybrid boot - you can do this as follows. Right click on the Battery icon in the taskbar and select Power Options. Click on 'Choose what the power button does' in the left hand pane. In the subsequent window, first click on 'Change settings that are currently unavailable' ( near the top of the Window ) and then remove the checkmark from the box against 'Turn on fast start-up (recommended)'.  Click the Save changes button, then restart the notebook. Regards, DP-K
