Q: My notebook is dead! nothing displays on the screen

i borrowed my cousin my noebook, when it came back it does not operate. when i power it on the power light shows up but nothing shows on the screen, i used RS 232 to connect to external monitor but still nothing is displayed. he told me he properly shut down the machine before he returned it to me, but it looks like he is not telling me the truth. please help.

probably opened the machine and messed up with the video card.

Preferred Solution: My notebook is dead! nothing displays on the screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm currently having a hardware fault, happened awhile ago now but I can afford a new GPU now if I have to but thought I'd futher investergate whats going on. So thought I'd ask for some help.

Turned PC on one day, got the blue screen booted into safe mode tried a few things forgot how I found out but I disabled my display drivers and then my PC was able to boot up without safe mode. Since then all my PC does is watch movies, surf the net and just the basic stuff.

So my GPU is still sending a video signal but if I enable the device, my PC either gets a blue screen or hangs on a black screen after loading windows vista

The card I was running is a geforce 9800GTX-2 in yes my PSU is powerful enough

Hello, When I boot up my notebook it doesn't display the screen I would get when I turn it on.It displays a blue box saying "Selected boot image did not authenticate" something like that. I did enable Legacy boot, but when i reboot the system it Displays "No bootable device found." Another problem is i can't charge my laptop, it only powers the laptop when it's inserted. Any thing that could solve both of my problems?

The other day i was using my notebook and i got a message saying my computer was going to restart to finish updates. it did not give me the option to cancel. When it finished restarting all i get is a blank display all i see is the backlight. and ive tried everything. Hard reset. Restoring BIOS. i tried connecting to an external monitor but that doesn't work. I feel like this is not my fault windows did not allow me to cancel updating it just restarted my laptop as i was using it. i dont think i should have to pay 59.99 for phone support or anything else. This is a huge inconvenience to me as i use my laptop everyday for work.

Wonder if some up a dead Waking notebook techie out there can help Waking up a dead notebook me as I am at my wits end with my three year old Advent DVD notebook To begin with speedy battery drainage problems were in evidence As the Li-on battery was three years old I replaced it with a new one allowing several charging and draining cycles to begin with A red light was in evidence when the notebook was switched off but charging- and an orange light indicated that charging was taking place when the machine was in use I noticed that at regular intervals the quot charging icon quot would revert to the quot battery in use but not charging quot icon on the icon bar- and it was necessary to put pressure on the mains lead at the point it slotted into the notebook By pushing it slightly to the right or left the orange light would eventually flicker or the red if it happened to be turned off and charging could be initiated At this juncture I ordered a new mains adaptor but found there was still a need to put some pressure to the right or left at the point of contact of the mains lead notebook During this time the battery became drained to such an extent that it would breathe no life whatsoever into the notebook By wiggling the mains adaptor a static green light will eventually appear above the quot hibernate quot half moon icon on the computer s surface but it is impossible to initiate the charging which a red light would imply When the battery is removed the notebook will not show more than an occasional green flicker either I suspect a board which controls the power supply is the culprit Possibly the hard disc has crashed as a consequence of the inconsistent power supply although it was functioning with accuracy prior to the battery last becoming exhausted Any ideas about what might be the cause of this problem and what I might try next nbsp

A:Waking up a dead notebook

It could also be a matter of the battery contacts being corroded or misaligned.

Have you looked at the contacts on the battery and in the case???

Can you use the machine on AC at all? Many, if not most, laptops will work without a battery (I realize this defeats the purpose.)

Assuming that you find no contact problems, I would lean towards a board or board connector being up the creek. And at the age of your laptop, those components could be difficult to find, but maybe you'll get lucky.

Good luck!

My notebook's motherboard is fried, but it seems like such a waste to scrap it and not make use of it. Is there any way to get a use out of the LCD? setting it up as a second monitor for my current setup?


A:Dead notebook; Can I use the parts?

I don't know about the LCD, but I have saved memory, hard drives, optical drives, keyboards, screws. wifi modules, etc. for use in other projects.
The memory, in particular, has come in handy. Some day when I lose a screw I might be grateful.

I have a HP Presario CQ62 notebook that just totally died.
I closed it up after using it normally, came back and opened the lid and it was dead. No lights, not even power supply indicator light. Nothing happens when the power button is pushed of course.
I thought and hoped it was a faulty power supply and a flat battery, but I have a spare power supply so this was able to be ruled out.
Not that it's relevant here, but it's running Windows 7 64 bit.
Anyone got any ideas where to look for a solution to this? As it won't fire up on battery or power it has to be after those.

A:Dead HP Presario CQ62 notebook

Remove the memory and re install it... Remove the battery and try AC power only. With the battery out and AC out, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. Re install the battery and see if the laptop powers up

Hey everybody... I've got an HP Pavilion ze4400 on which the touchpad doesn't work. I can't be sure whether it's a faulty device or if drivers aren't installed. In Control Panel, under Mouse, Hardware, only one device (the USB mouse I'm using) shows up. I'm not sure what the standard touchpad driver for HP notebooks is. Going through the Add Hardware Wizard and telling XP that the device is already installed, it then gives me a list of installed hardware to select from. I don't know what that driver is, if it's even in there. Anyone know what the driver is? Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

Hi everyone, My 3 month old Gateway notebook just stopped working the other night. I picked up a notebook hard drive enclosure in hopes of retrieving the work from the hard drive saved in the my documents folder before taking it back.

When I try to gain access to the my documents it is telling me that access is denied. My notebook had a password set up on the administrator profile.
I've tried to go through sharing and security settings but this only allows me to see whats in the owners documents folder for the notebook, not retrieve any work.
The notebook has XP home and my desktop has XP pro.
If anyone can shed light on why this is happening or how I can get around this to save my work, I'd appreciate it!

Hi all,

I've attached a picture of the display on a Sony VAIO model PCG-5J1L.
The laptop is fully functional, apart from the screen. This is what it shows after Windows finishes loading.

Is this a case of clear-cut "sure, you need to replace p/n xyz and voila" or a more complex case of "this could be one of several things" ?


A:Dead VAIO notebook display. What needs replacing?

Since the screen is lit up i dont think its the ribbon cable, backlights, or inverter. So im thinking graphics, chipset, or video drivers are corrupted or the video card has gone get a proper diagnosis i would take it somewhere and then you will know what failed or what needs replaced and go from there.

Can you get into the BIOS settings?
On Asus laptops you repeatedly press the F2 key immediately after pressing power on.

Also, if you repeatedly press the ESC key at power on it should bring up the boot device menu, where you can choose to boot from the CD/DVD to test.

I'm selling a dead notebook (Sony F270) that still has personal data and files on the hard drive. I replaced it with a newer Sony (FXA48) and doubt that I can simply switch hard drives to gain access.

What would you suggest?

PS I don't really want to buy a bunch of adapter cables (power & data) to hook it to a desktop but the only other option I can think of is a big magnet. I didn't really want to erase the OS and applications, kind of diminishes the value to the buyer.

A:Dead hdd (C) on HP Envy notebook can I recover data?

Hi el condor,

Welcome to the SevenForums.

From what you have said I understand the HDD had suffered physical damage with a head crash. How did you decide that?

In such a case the HDD is a write-off and you cannot do a DIY.

If you want to do a data recovery in a physically damaged drive, you have to approach a professional data recovery service but it will cost you a bomb with unpredictable end results.

My honest advice would be to replace the hard drive. If you had made the recovery CDs, you can reinstall the factory installation.

If not you may have to do a clean install of the same Edition Windows that came preinstalled and use the COA key on the sticker of your HP Envy to activate it.

And if your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP Technical Support for the required service.

Is it locking up when using Firefox? Try running Firefox with add ons disabled. Go to the Firefox tab > Help > click on "Restart with Add-Ons Disabled"

If this fixes the problem, then go to the Firefox tab > Add-Ons > then enable one at a time until Firefox locks up, remove or disable offending Add-On.

You may want to check that your Plug-Ins are updated also, with the Add-Ons Manager window open, click on the Plug-Ins. At the top there will be a link "Check to see if your Plug-ins are up to date", click the link and update any that require a update or fix.

There seems to be NO LIFE at all except a dull orange power indicator on the case (which really ought to be green to indicate proper power. Nothing works. No other lights, beeps, fan... or anything at all.

System running Windows XP

After the stsystem starts, and after the Windows XP Splash Screen and Windows is Starting,

The screen only shows a Splash Screen Reading:
"Warning! Spyware detected on your computer!
Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer."

After this there is no icons, no start menu, no task bar.

I cannot CTRL+ALT+DEL, it says task manager has been disabled by your administrator.

If I leave the system running for 10 minutes or so a bogus advertisment for spyware removal will display, all you can do is click install or close the window.

Windows key will not open start menu, windows key+R will not open run command. No right click, nothing seems to work...

Safe mode will boot up, no splash screen, just blank black desktop, safe mode in corners, nothing works.

What can I do other than format?

A:Need help with "extra-wide" PC notebook displays

It really depends as much on the graphics card as the screen itself, and there is no reliable way to know. You have to see it setup and play with the display settings.
However, If you select a true high end laptop should be fine. Others will make the images look stretched, but user quickly get used to it. One would think that 1080p would be a guarantee of good screen performance, but it is not.
If you are getting a computer that is in the upper third of its price and model range, you usually get the good screen combination in my experience... HP, Dell, Sony, and Lenovo anyway. You will have to avoid budget laptops.

I recently got all of the parts I need in order to build a computer. When I installed everything and hooked it up to the monitor, nothing was being displayed. I thought the monitor might be bad, so I tried another monitor and still nothing. I thought maybe my motherboard was bad, so I replaced it with another motherboard and processor that my friend told me worked in his computer, and still nothing was displaying to the screen. I tried replacing the power supply thinking the old one wasn't supplying enough juice and still no bios is being displayed to the screen. Can anyone help me?

I am trying to get at old DOS program to fill my whole
screen. When I set the screen properties at "full
screen", there is no window, but the program only fills
the top half of the screen.

If I set it to open in a window, the window only fills
about a third of the screen and won't enlarge. If I could
find a way to enlarge it, that would actually be an even
better solution.


A:DOS program displays on 1/2 screen

Have you tried running the program in a compatibility mode that would emulate an earlier Windows system?

To do so, create a shortcut to the executable program file and view the properties of that shortcut. A Shortcut to an executable is actually a pif (Programm Information File) and allows for some creative selection so try all modes available, you'll not hurt anything.

I know this is trivial, but I want to run the science.scr screensaver on my W2K machine, I was able to copy it from an old Win95 Plus pack and install it on my machine, but it only displays the blue background when active. When I go into desktop settings and do a preview it displays fine with my background image, but when it fires all I see is a blue screen.

Any ideas?

Set the game's aspect ratio and resolution to what matches your screen.

If you can't do that in the game, then you're out of luck.

If you think it worked on Vista, it did not. It incorrectly stretched your screen out so it showed a square as a rectangle.

I have an Acer Aspire 1710 notebook that I just put 18mb of video and about 20mb of pictures onto. I edited the video with windows movie maker and everything was going great. I had saved the video onto my desktop and reviewed it. i decided to put one of the clips of the movie in slow motion. It played the clip in slow motion and then my notebook froze. I couldnt restart or shutdown so i just killed the power and when i turned it back on, all the i could see that turned on was the cooling fan. The screen remained black, and i cant get to safe mode or configure an other boot options. I dont have any warranty on my notebook so i would appreciate any help if possible. my video is for a project for one of my classes at school.

Does it boot up, but just go to black screen? If so, try connecting an external monitor. Check your keyboard for shortcuts that will switch between internal and external. Try leaving the battery out, and it disconnected for an hour.

I have a Windows 7 PC with 2 user accounts. Both are administrators. When I remove one account from the local administrators group and reboot, the welcome screen then only displays one account which is part of the local admins group.

In order to have the other account appear on the welcome screen it has to be a local admin.

How can I get Windows 7 to display both accounts on the welcome screen, the standard user  and the local admin?

A:Computer Only Displays Startup Screen

Whenever there is a boot problem the first thing I recommend is to run Check Disk from the Recovery Console. Insert the Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.Type: chkdsk /rIt's important to have a space before the "/".To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Any ideas?

Hello M,

Double check your startup program list to see if there is anything listed in it for this. You can temporarily disable them one at a time if needed to help determine which one it is. Afterwards, you can just re-enable the ones that were not it.

Hope this helps,

It is white even when nothing is plugged into it. I think it may be caused by the backlight, it's almost like it got turned all the way up because the screen is super bright. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

A:Dv7 Laptop Screen turns on but displays nothing

Not sure what you mean by 'Power Cover/Board' - is it this ? :-
And the broken 'connector' was it an electrical connector ?

Make sure the Video cable behind the screen is correctly connected and any tape is in the right place. These can slide out a bit when you put the screen back against the lid.

I have a Dell Vostro 1700 Laptop with the 256mb GeForce 8600M GT graphics card. The laptop lcd works fine but when i connect an external monitor using the VGA output the external monitor just displays a black screen.

I have already ruled out drivers and operating system as i have tried it across various versions and with different drivers and still nothing. i have also tried it with ubuntu with no success.

The computer detects that there is a montior and can even tell the specs of the monitor. It just the monitor detects that it is connected to a computer but just displays a blank screen.

Any Ideas???

Before anyone can help you, you need to post ALL of your exact system specs; ie exact mb installed, exact cpu installed, exact pw supply installed, etc, etc, etc. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, then post the exact make and model# If you have a service tag, post that as well.

I've got a W7 Pro desktop with an ASUS BIOS. Everything works fine, but recently the BIOS Flash Screen is taking much longer (now about 30-40 seconds, versus 3-5 seconds until recently) than it has in the past 3 years.

I've not touched the BIOS in years, and I've not made any hardware changes (RoadRunner did recently replace our old G-router with a new N-router but I can't imagine that change caused the BIOS screen to display longer).

What might be causing this increased BIOS Flash Screen time, and is there a way for a relative novice to reduce it back to where it used to be (around 5 seconds, max)?

Thanks much for any help!

A:DDS displays its logs on screen, but these are not the ones saved on the desktop

DDS is non-invasive diagnostic tool (not an anti-malware program) created by sUBs that produces a Psuedo HijackThis Report, a scaled down and simplified version of 'HijackThis lines' which provides the same information in a more condensed format. Since DDS collects a lot of data, it is much more useful for malware detection, then later disinfection with other tools as you cannot fix any of the entries with this tool. DDS makes no registry changes and it does not create any permanent files/folders. It's primary purpose is detection of malware in various areas and providing a detailed log to a trained malware removal Helper who can use the report to plan a strategy of attack.After DDS completes a scan it will create 2 log files...DDS.txt and Attach.txt which open in Notepad and can be saved to the Desktop for user convenience. This is why helpers who provide instructions ask them to save to that location. Logs are automatically saved to the Local Settings\Temp folder by design.DDS was removed from the Prep Guide and replaced with FRST, because DDS does not support Windows 8.1 so you cannot get it to run.

Hi there eveyone, I hope someone can shed some light on this issue for me.

Basically, I might have once accidentally dropped my laptop quite hard, ever since it has frequently frozen, with the screen displaying a repeating pattern (see picture). The only way to get out of this is to power off and turn on again. The odd thing is that I can use it normally for prolonged periods with no problem and it'll suddenly happen or sometimes it happens during boot-up. It's most possibly some kind of loose connection but I'm not sure what really. One other thing to note is that when the screen goes funny the computer shows no sign of working (HDD light either has no activity or stays on permanently).

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

XP comes with Outlook Express defaulted to install, and I bet the 1 unread message is the "Welcome to Outlook Express" that everyone gets. It's not really an e-mail. Launch OE on all 3 accounts until you find it and "read" it.

I think TweakUI has a tweak that turns off the reporting of "unread" e-mail from OE.

I had the google redirector malware recently. I successfully removed it but now when I use any of the search engines in IE7, the results are displayed okay. When I click on any of the results to go to the web page, page cannot be displayed comes up. If I hit refresh, the page comes up.
If I were to add the web address it finds each site first time.
I am using Vista.
I have tried upgrading to IE8, but this didn't help.
I have tried changing the check for newer versions of web pages to be always, but this hasn't helped.
Has anyone any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Hello there, I'm Callie. On May 7th I purchased a Dell Inspirion 5559. As of yesterday on Thurday June 9th, I have noticed an issue with my webcam. Unless it's in front of a direct light like the sun or a light pointing towards the webcam, my webcam displays a black/blank screen.  Here are a couple examples.
In front of window/sunlight.
Moved away from window/sunlight [but still lights on in the room.]

A:Webcam Displays Black Screen [Unless in front of Direct Light]

Here is a good source when troubleshooting Webcam Issues. 
The Screen is black, blank or dark

A blank, black or dark screen can be caused by low light conditions or if the webcam is in the wrong mode. Make sure to use the webcam in a well-lighted area.
Adjust the brightness setting in the Skype software, for more information refer to the Skype website.

On Skype, select Tools> Options >Video Settings > Webcam settings 
Then move the sliders for brightness and contrast and see if it helps.

hi there people,
this is embarrassing!
been using Windows since forever but eyesight now failing.
Have increased the screen type size so that I can still read it, but now the icons are gigantic.
I do remember going through this exercise on my previous PC before I bought my Samsung R780 notebook and I did it then with a simple utility.

I am working on a project now that is overdue, so any help would be much appreciated.
I have quickly tried to find a similar problem via search with no luck.

A:Icon displays too large after screen type size increased

Hello Himagain, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This sounds like the DPI settings that you changed if everything is huge now. If so, then you could use OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to reset it back to the default 96 DPI (100%).

Hope this helps,

A:PC Monitor: Random white & blue green screen displays?

Hi devhead
Welcome to the forums. I think you are running out of memory. Why don't you set Windows to manage the Page / Swapfile on your SSD? I have 16gb of ram and have a 16GB page file on my two main systems. I can run out of memory if I run too many virtual machines and the PC starts writing to hard drives. The fact your machine goes to a white screen and locks up when you are pasting files into documents I think indicates the limited virtual memory is stalling the system. A page file on an SSD would be good use of the drive.

I have a screensaver that I made using a avi to screensaver program and had it since 2011 and worked fine since then but now I restart my computer, the screensaver no longer displays in full screen, it display with a black box border with the video in the center of the screen! I tried changing the screensaver then changing it back, still no longer full screen and still in that small box. I googled the issue and found nothing! all I found was problems with the 'My Pictures' screensaver but nothing that applies to me!

Hi Everyone I recently purchased a Belkin Screencast AV with the intention of using it for meetings at work Primarily my thinking was that both employees and visitors could easily plug their laptops into the Screencast and content could easily be viewed through the Boardroom flat screen TV Let me say that my experience not of cloning laptops displays) (when all Belkin showing Screencast screen with this product has been anything but smooth and I would not be in a rush to recommend this product further to this I unfortunately purchased one of these for my father in law recently and fingers crossed he won t have the issues that I have faced My issues started with The remote control did not work at all Fiddling with a flat head screw driver and the remote rectified this issue however if I did not Belkin Screencast not showing all of laptops screen (when cloning displays) have a good response to my Whirlpool Forum Post regarding this issue I would not have even gotten to the second issue The Screencast is quite picky when it comes to HDMI cables The first HDMI cable that I plugged in caused the Screencast menu to come up on the flat screen and no matter what I did it simply wouldn t go away - e g the remote control became unresponsive The cloned screen image is clipped on the flat screen TV I am missing half of the Windows task bar and a similar amount of screen real estate from the top and sides Now that I have my quot bitching quot out of the way I would still like to fix point I have tried different resolutions on the laptop and various TV ratio settings in all instances I am still seeing a small amount of screen clipping I have contacted Belkin support on at least occasions their service was reasonable on at least of those occasions and in my last conversation it was apologetically explained to me that the Screencast is not I repeat NOT DEFINITELY NOT designed with laptops in mind Instead it is intended only for Home Entertainment setups Of course I am going to keep trying here I have jumped through hoops and run a marathon at least that is what it feels like and ultimately I am not prepared to give up yet Any help and suggestions will be appreciated Kind Regards Davo nbsp

A:Belkin Screencast not showing all of laptops screen (when cloning displays)


If you are missing cloning straight from your laptop to a TV, there may be a difference in resolution for the 2. Windows does not automatically scale the second screen to look the same as yours. It would be like trying to make an A3 painting fit on a piece of A4 paper without first making it smaller, you will see some of the picture but not all of it. Win+P will change whether it extends the screen or duplicates it. Perhaps I am way off the mark here on my advice.
Let me know if any of this helps.

After doing a fresh install of windows xp home on my friend's HP laptop, she took it away and has been happily using it for the last week.

(Reason for fresh install was suspected infection)

Now, it starts and almost gets to the logon, but a two second blue screen with the message:-

"Begining dump of physical memory. Physical dump complete. Contact your system administer or technical support for further assistance"

It then reboots back to the safe mode options screen and will not boot into any of them.

She says it hasn't had a knock or fall, but the only time I've seen a message like that before was when it was due to a hardware issue?

Any advice?

When the screen goes onto standby after 20 minutes without use, my screen goes black as usual, then when I try to bring it back, it notices this and yet does not come back, yet it fills the screen with a sort of green hue, the edge of the screen goes an emerald green hue. I can never get it back on and I have to switch off the computer.

I have fixed this by stopping it from turning itself off, but this wastes energy and I just want to know how to fix this.

I blew out my desktop with compressed air and now i have no video. the screen acts like its going to work and then says monitor going to sleep. I had it checked out at a pc shop and the said it is probably(?) the mother board. got an exact replacement from HP and still dead screen. changed out the video card with a new one still nothing. Any advice as to a reasonable fix $wise would help.Also when it is first turned on,(cold start) the cooling fan for the processor runs at full speed and the only way to shut off the pc then is to unplug it.
