Laptop screen stays blank

  Dols 15:02 14 Sep 2003

Hi all,

My laptop screen either stays blank on startup or else goes blank and comes on only when I press the small standby button (repeatedly till I get the screen back). The button is not stuck. I checked that. What else could be the problem and how can I solve it. Please help.

check power saving settings - right click on an empty section of the screen and look in screen saver. Some laptops have an auto feature that when on batteries they shut down half the power to the screen and it makes them virtually black and appears to be off.
