Hi,

I would like to get some advise regarding a Presario V612OUS laptop screen. While using the laptop the screen started flashing gray and white. Only way to shut the laptop down was to hold down the start button. After a restart the led indicators were flashing but the screen stayed black. Have done a hard reset and verified the memory card was seated properly. Also tried to check the bios but without the screen that was useless. Any suggestions what might have happened and how to fix is appreciated.

Thank you,

If you have an external monitor you could connect it via the VGA. If it works then you know that the problem is with the screen. If it doesn't, then you know that the problem is the laptop graphics.

I couldn't find any information for the model that you posted. Is it a typo?

Thanks for your response. Sorry but I did type the model number incorrectly. What I typed as the letter O should have been a zero 0. Correct model is Presario V6120US.

Did you try using an external monitor?

Just finished trying the laptop with an external monitor. The laptop belongs to my daughter so I just got my first look at the problem. First of all I pressed the fn - F4 continually and saw nothing on either the laptop or the external screen. It also seems that the laptop is cycling. Unfortunately all I see are the led lights but they seem to go off and then start again like it is rebooting. Can hear the fan running. Thanks for your help.

Try removing the battery and turning it back on. Could be the battery is bad.
