Hi I have a Packard Bell Notebook that has been nothing but trouble since we got it.

Recently I shut the screen and opened it again a few moments later and the screen had gone dark black (I could very faintly make out the windows in the background).

Thinking it was the LCD brightness I shut turned it off and re-booted it but when it came back on even the startup (Packard Bell loading screen) was un-readable and dark.

I thought this was the LCD screen failing so I attached it to my other TV and the computer started to boot in full colour until we hit the Vista login user Login screen and then the monitor lost its signal and went black.

So I am left very confused what is causing the problem?

Any help would be great...

It boots up to the login screen on my other monitor fine, but when it gets to the actual login screen itself it then goes "no signal" and goes black and if you look at the laptop again you can faintly make out the login screen in the background.

Hope this helps?

so it doesnt even display post screen full color on the laptop screen? its one of 3 things, LCD screen, connector between the LCD and the board, and the onboard video chipset. since it stops displaying after the login, thats probably a setting, so my guess is its your LCD. is your laptop still under warranty?
