Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Laptop monitor will not come on.

\015 Cyberpower 17 in., AMD 64x2, 2 gb. ram, nvidia 7600 GO force graphics.\015\012Installed new 200 gb 7200 hard drive, and partitioned for dual boot.\015\012Installed win xp pro and all drivers with no problem.\015\012Installed vista in other partition, began to install drivers but vista would not read the disk. So I began downloading drivers from the internet and no problems until I got to the graphics driver.\015\012Download with no problem but when time to reboot the monitor never came back on.\015\012I hear noise and everything seems to work but no monitor.\015\012\015\012After about a week of messing with it, I reinstalled the original hard drive and powered on, everything works except for the monitor. I hear the windows xp startup sounds, I hear all normal sounds, I can even put a dvd in and hear the sounds of the movie but no monitor.\015\012I've tried an external monitor with no results.\015\012Now the crazy thing is every now and then mabye 2 or 3 days with no power supply to the laptop the monitor comes on, but if I reboot no monitor again.\015\012\015\012Any ideas.\015\012thosnv\015

Answers :

The next time you get it to come on, try the refresh rate. Have you tried to flash the BIOS? You can download the BIOS from the same place that you got the drivers. What brand of laptop is this? Cyberpower,DEL,HP,COMPAQ,ALIENWARE,
GATEWAY etc. does not build laptops. They just put their name on them, because they have another company set them up to their specs. ASUS is mentioned on their site. This tells me that ASUS might have built the laptop. ASUS is the best laptop company. I have never had any problem with my ASUS laptop that I built. Try flashing the BIOS, or check the BIOS settings. This is very strange. You can also check the button by the latch and see if it is sticking. This button turns on the monitor. I have seen that button stick on laptops. It should pop up when the laptop opens. You might have to look at the manual to find the button. Check your settings on what the monitor does when you close the laptop. It could be in sleep mode or hibernation and might be stuck in that setting. These settings are also in your BIOS. Hit the DEL button or one of you F buttons to get into the BIOS. ASUS uses the DEL button.
This may be a loose connection or possible component failure.

\015\012Would need to take a look into the laptop myself to see what the problem really is.

\015\012I can suggest you take a look on the connectors - hdd & lcd, since this started when you changed the hdd thats why Im recommend you check those connectors also, maybe reconnect.
