Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Answers :

I'm assuming this is a desktop computer. Make sure your monitor is plugged into the desktop and turned on when you get around to trying the computer. The only good solution is if your video card and gotten bumped and isn't seated in the motherboard well. Take the power cord out of the desktop and open the case. Gently push down on the video card and ensure that it is seated in the motherboard. If this doesn't work you may want to check your monitor by plugging it into another system. If that doesn't work then your motherboard is probably bad.
Check to see if you have the Monitor/LCD toggler on LCD off.
Hit the FN key and the LCD/MONITOR key(one of the FUNCTION KEYS at the top where your numeric keys) to toggle. You might want to connect an regular monitor to see if you get outpu. If the regular monitor gets output and your laptop screen doesn't then you have an bad LCD screen and will need to be replace.

When booting, the screen shows the normal Dell display, but then turns black. The mouse/touchpad cursor/arrow is the only visible item on the screen. It moves about in the normal manner.
