Solving Laptop Display Problems

Solving your laptop display problems is actually simpler than it would initially seem, although you will of course need to have a clear idea of what you are looking for.

The first obvious steps are to check the power connections. If everything is in order, the next step is to plug your laptop into an external monitor. If your laptop desktop shows up as normal on this external monitor, there is a good chance that the laptop display problems lie with your laptop display.

In most cases, the laptop display can be replaced with nothing more than a Phillips screwdriver. Of course the task may be a bit daunting if you have no experience with such repairs, but even inexperienced users can learn how to do this fairly easily.

Before you take on this task however, first make sure that there are no power related issues. Check to see if your battery isn’t dead, and that the AC adapter is plugged into the wall socket securely. You may also want to make sure that the monitor is set to the proper brightness level. You may be surprised at the number of “laptop display problems” that are caused by nothing more than the brightness control being turned all the way down!

If after checking out all the above possibilities, you may have to undertake a screen replacement. This will require a Phillips screwdriver, with which you will remove the screws located on the outside bezel of the laptop screen. After making sure that all the screws are removed, gently ease out the bezel and then remove the metal brackets that hold it in place underneath. Most laptops will have these brackets secured by two more screws, which will again have to be removed with a Phillips screwdriver.

At this point, you should be able to see the inverter. This will be located just below the display, with a cable connector right beside it. Disconnected this cable and lift out the display carefully, and plug the replacement display in the same way. Plug the inverter cable back in and screw everything back on. Finally put the bezel back in and you will hopefully have a fully functional laptop display!
