The Ways of Fixing Your Laptop Screen
Whenever your laptop screen stops working and goes completely black it is very difficult to understand what exactly you should do to troubleshoot this problem. You need to do the right thing to get your screen to start working again otherwise you will lose all the data that you have in it. If you mistakenly change the default settings of the laptop while trying to fix the laptop with a blackout screen then you might need a professional to fix it properly or might have to buy a new one if required. Laptop screens sometimes do not work because of internal issues on your laptop such as software issues. It can also be because of external issues such as battery issues or screen not working after from at height. All these issues happen most of the time and need to be resolved to start the screen working properly. Learning the right way to troubleshoot this problem with your laptop is important to make the right decision whenever or wherever you face the issue so that it is easy to resolve all by yourself and you don’t always need a professional to solve this. Let’s discuss the ways to fix this problem with your laptop:
Check the Battery Level
We all sometimes make silly mistakes and are unable to understand what is wrong we did. Sometimes we are working on the laptop and suddenly it turns off and we don’t understand what suddenly happened. We try all the hooks and crooks that are possible to turn the screen ON but are unable to because we don’t see that the laptop’s battery is over. After a lot of hustle, we understand what the real problem is. So whenever your laptop screen suddenly stops working plug in the charger first.
Check the Charging Adapter
Sometimes even after checking the laptop’s charging level and plugging in the charger does not work, there might be a problem with the charger’s adapter. Many times when the adapter gets outdated they stop converting the electric charge and hence your laptop battery does not get charged. Whenever a situation like this arises, first try to find one alternate adopter just to check whether the problem is with the adapter or not. If the problem is actually with the adapter then you can go and buy a new one because getting an adapter repaired does not seems a reasonable option here because you can get a brand new adapter at the cost of repairing one.
Check The External Connections of your laptop
Whenever the screen goes all black and there is no problem with the charging level and the charging adapter make sure that there is no connection with any other display screen. Many times what happens is that we are displaying something like a presentation on a big screen that is connected to our laptop with a wire and it is obvious that your laptop display screen will not reflect anything. Check for the wire connection and remove the connection with the other display screen.
Operating System Malfunction
If your laptop screen goes all black and you are unable to see anything else other than the mouse cursor reflecting on the screen, it is definite that the operating system applications such as Windows 10, Linux, Chromium OS, Mac OS, etc. have corrupted and you are unable to access any files because of this. There are only two solutions to this problem. At first, try to restart the windows and see if the issue is genuine with the operating system file. If the problem persists you have the only option left which is to completely remove everything from the hard drive and get new windows installed into your system.
External Issues with the Display Screen
External breakdown and damage can also be the reason behind your display screen not working properly. The display gets damaged because of many reasons but the major ones are mishandling and liquid spillage. You drinking coffee at the coffee shop and suddenly a push from the back spills all your coffee over the laptop and the screen stops working or you have mistakenly given your laptop at the airport while check-in and the because heavy bags kept over your laptop bag your screen gets damaged. In both these situations, you better get your screen replaced by a professional. Getting a screen replaced is a better option than getting it repaired because after replacement you will not face any problem with the screen in the long term.
The temperature of your laptop
Because of extreme weather conditions and continuous working on laptop along with developing heavy applications results in overheating your laptop screen display not working anymore. The screen turns black and you can’t get the laptop started until the temperature of your system cools down. Leave your laptop for a few hours to cool down and get it upgraded with required components such as a cooling fan to maintain temperature.
