I have a compaq presario cq60-214dx laptop. My screen is cracked and i connected it to an external monitor. Everything worked fine until a month ago. My laptop turns on but external monitor says no signal. I pushed Fn F4 keys but still no signal. I cannot see anything on my laptop screen so I do not know what if something is open hindering the signal to monitor. Please help, I use this for school and work which has all my files.

Hi Melissa,

perhaps your monitor has packed up, try connecting it to a TV see if the problem persists

Hope this works!

SOURCE: My FN+F6 doesnt keep my screen on the laptop open

Hi,
I think you're trying to output the screen to external monitor right ? So when you press Fn+F6 this will output to external monitor only but if you do it again it will output to both (External and you LCD) and if you repeat the step again you're back to normal.
goodluck,takecare.

SOURCE: connect broken laptop screen to external monitor

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.

SOURCE: my Fn F4 key is not working is any other option lcd connectivity

Hello

Just follow any of the method

Method 1:

  • Press Home (the 4 boxes doing the wave) then after pressing it a box should pop up, press the button R... press Enter , then watch as you computer restarts. When it is finished loading log back in and it will work, this also works for many errors and bug reports too.
Method 2:
  • Try holding down the function key and hitting the numlock or scroll lock key, this is usually how you engage or disengage the laptops function keys on the keyboard. Most laptops have a light that will turn on and off when you do this, indicationg that the funtion keys are in use. depends on the brand
Wishing you success

Compaq presario 700 monitor off


Hi
Maybe, depending on the problem. Laptop monitor problems fall into three categories. 1. Screen electronics or lamp. 2. Inverter. 3. Laptop video chip. I've been repairing latops ever since they arrived on the market. First connect an external monitor to the laptop - this will show you whether or not the laptop motherboard is working correctly. If it is then you'll need to replace either the screen or the inverter. So as not to waste alot of money, at this point I would suugest going to a reputable repair person or check my website www.micromendllc.com

FS050UA , COMPAQ PRESARIO NOTEBOOK PC CQ50-210US the screen has lines and a black spot


Hi,
Turn on the notebook and press F10 to get into BIOS screen. Even if the lines and the black spot appears then the issue is with the internal hardware of the notebook.
To check further connect an external monitor to the notebook and press Fn and F4 keys on the keyboard to get the display on external monitor. If the external monitor display is fine then the issue is with the LCD screen or else the issue is with the Video card of the notebook.

Try a different monitor, if it is OK then your 19" monitor is faulty or the video cable is faulty.

Compaq r3000 dark screen


If you already replaced the inverter and the screen still continues dark, you need to replace your lcd screen. Your video card is good due you have signal with external monitor.
