Looking for advice/Notebook Monitor

    My Notebook has a problem,when I start the it ,the power on lamp is blue and you can hear he is doing something,but the MONITOR stays black!
    I switch him off ,and start again ,normally the second time the monitor works.

    Maybe someone know the reason,he two years old .

    Thanks for any help!


    A bit more information would make it easier for someone to help you. Do you have an external monitor connected, or by the term "monitor" are you referring to the notebook LCD screen?

    Sorry,yes I meant the Notebook LCD Screen.

    it might be a loose connector in there somewhere. Boot it up, you should briefly see a "Press F2 to enter setup prompt" tap F2 repeatedly until you go into the setup screens (BIOS). You are looking for an option called "Primary Video Device, or Primary display Device" (or something similar, you get the idea. Change this option to internal screen (not external monitor, or both) and then give that a try. If that doesn't work, then it looks like a hardware problem
