  • MacBook Pro 2015 turns on but the screen remains black...


    Today, I tried to turn on my MacBook Pro, but my screen stays black. When I press the caps lock button, it turns green which I guess means he lit. I've also heard the startup chime it generally makes when you turn on. I already tried to turn it on and off several times and reset the SMC and the LANDAU... The screen is always black.

    Could someone help me please?

    Also a few minutes ago the fan has started to make noise in the macbook...

    But the screen remains black.

    Thank you


    Hi shaynidw,

    From your description, it seems that your MacBook Pro is powered, as soon as you hear the startup chime and see the light on the keyboard.  Thus, it seems that the problem may be with your screen or the video card.

    On the screens you see when you start your Mac

    Power on

    When you turn on your Mac, display is off (black) and you hear a startup chime. Your Mac Initializes his BootROM and memory (RAM live). It then performs a power - on that self test (POST) and a test of BootROM. If you hear beeps or chimes at this stage, this indicates a possible hardware problem and start stops. If you add memory to your Mac, check that it is installed correctly.

    White screen

    After that only walking self-test is completed, your Mac sends a video signal to your connected screens. The screen may appear black or grey at this point in the boot sequence and backlight of the screen should light up. If you do not see the image appears on your screen after a few moments, try increasing the brightness of your screen. If you use an external monitor, make sure it is properly connected and turned on.

    shaynidw, if set up the brightness of your screen does not help, you have an external display (computer screen or TV) that you can attach to your MacBook Pro to test?

    In addition, you can try to start your computer in safe mode to see if you get different results.

    Try safe mode if your Mac does not end commissioning

    If the problem persists, you may need to take your computer to an Apple Store or service provider authorized Apple , so they can inspect the video card and cables to isolate the problem.

    Take care.

    Thank you

    Well, when the scrween does not at all (even in text mode which allows a recovery) then it is most often a problem with the cable bwteeen the motherboard and screen, most often following it is a failure of the screen (which requires generally a matter of co-location as cracked screen) and from time to time, it is the motherboard. Probably time to contact Acer support to see on a repair.

  • Alienware x 51 starts, but the screen remains black.

    I bought my x 51 all with warranty 1 year ago a year and a half, recently it has been giving me some problems and today I can't use it yet at all.

    The problem started with my screen remains black when I turned on my computer (punt, never awake from sleep), but which would be corrected by me once or twice by restarting the computer. That did not last too long, and soon it did not matter how many times I rebooted the computer. I finally had to unplug the computer and press and hold the power for 30 seconds to see if it worked.

    He did, but this solution has worked only once, and now I have nothing seems to regularize my situation. I tried switching monitors and cables with my brother (who is an identical 51 x), but nothing has worked.

    To summarize:

    My computer turns on.

    Not funny lights or noises (save a beep on startup)

    Screen remains black on reboot of the screen it says he receives no signal and falls asleep.

    No problem when it runs normally (not funny colors, stripes on the screen or blur).

    Help, please. Dell support wants 70 to 110 dollars to listen to even my problem, which is money, that I don't have at the moment.

    Thanks for anything that might help!

    Sounds like you have a dead video card, from the link above looks like there is no output from vga Intel to tun tests, you must remove the old video card and test with another video card that works to verify that the card is in fact dead, like your brothers x 51 remove the video card and test it on your machine.

    If I had this machine in front of me I would use one of these babies for once then run tests on the video card.

  • Satellite P200D-139 - screen remains black

    Hello, Ive had my laptop for a few years and after leaving in my freezer for a few weeks on vacation, I went to turn it on and the laptop turned on and the lights came, but the screen remained black. The screen was not completely black she lights up very slightly, but nothing was visible at all (not even very thirsty)

    In the past, I encountered a situation where I had a red tinge to objects on my screen, but also red horizontal lines. This was never permanent and only occasionally happened.

    About my most recent problem involving the black screen, I tried taking the battery and holding the switch thing on, but also to take my ram out and put it back again. After that I took the ram out, I turned on the laptop and the screen shows red objects and flashes the screen loading and then black again. I don't know if it was because of the ram or just a coincidence.

    I'm completely stuck on the current situation and would be grateful for all the help I can get. Thank you!


    If everything is clear: in your case I would like to connect an external monitor to the laptop. So that you can identify if the problem is related to the screen internal or graphics card.

    In both cases you need professional help, I think the something on the hardware needs to be replaced. Therefore, you must contact an authorized service provider. Technicians can check your laptop and fix it for you it's a little tricky.

  • Satellite A200 screen remains black when you try to start

    Hi all

    My Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop computer no longer works, then everything started when I was playing a game, all of a sudden the screen turned blue with a tiny text written on it. I had to hold the power button for a few seconds to close, because nothing not happening on the computer. Then, I pressed the power button to open it. Everything was fine, until the Welcome screen. In this part, he wrote 'Welcome' but Vista left loading circle of it was not turning.

    After a few seconds, I decided to shut down the computer once again, so I hold the power button for the computer firm. Here's the problem: I tried to re-open it, but the screen remained black. Nothing was happening. The power light is blue, but not all computer activity. So I left it like that a few minutes then it closed and tried again, but it's the same thing. I tried to take it apart and noticed the card two memory was not entirely in its niche. I fixed it, but it does not solve the problem.

    I also tried to plug another screen on it, but this one was also black. So I handed the screen on his computer and tried to boot my laptop and it worked. He was the starter, but the first problem came, the Welcome screen was frooze it. So yes I close it up and then it's the same thing, the screen remained black.

    I don't think the problem is the screen, because as I said some time it goes to the Welcome screen. Also, I hear no welcome sound when the screen remains black as if the computer would simply not starts. And as I said earlier, I see no activity of the computer on the little light in front of the computer. And to the left of it, I see clearly that the computer is ON, because the power light is blue.

    That is my problem, the next time that the computer is able to start I'll try to boot mode SAFE, but until then, I don't know what to do. Please, help me.

    Thanks in advance,

    After the computer is turned off for about 30 minutes, I started and booted in safe mode. At this stage, I have locked my computer with the close button instead on the power button. Then I opened my computer and he started and the problem was solved. Now my laptop is open and working.

    So, if this happens to you:
    1. turn off your computer.
    2. wait about 30 minutes.
    3. start in safe mode
    4. close using istead of now off button power button closure.

    It should work.

    Finally, it does not work. I don't know why, but my computer did start after 30 minutes, but now it no longer works. Only, it will not start as I said later, with a black screen.

    The computer worked for about half an hour. I mean, I managed to start but after running a program, it just froze and I had to hold the power button to restart. I made about 3 or 4 times, and then he was simply the black screen again. I think the problem is my processor, maybe that it is damaged or something, would it possible?

    Because I see that the processor does not work when I try start it.

    So let's say that this is the case, would it be the symptoms of my computer?
    And if it's the processor, the only way to resolve this is to send it to a repairman or something, because I don't feel like it, I'd rather do it myself.

    But now, my computer is simply not starting, as I said in my previous post.

    Thanks in advance,
