I am having this following issue when turning on the netbook: the screen lights up, however it is just a dark screen (see picture). The HDD light shows that the OS is loading and I guess when it finishes loading up, the screen goes completely black (same as it would be when the netbook is turned off). Is it a graphic card issue or LCD screen? Thanks.

Could either be the graphics chipset or the LCD screen. Do you get the same screen when tapping F2 at boot?

Does the computer have a VGA output allowing you to use an external monitor. You may need to press a function key to allow an external monitor. If it does and the external throws the same screen then it's a motherboard problem.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I couldn't get any output when connecting an external display (and pressing the fn+F2 key combination). Pressing F2 alone didn't do anything. I guess this needs a new mobo right?

That or the LCD screen but I would hazard a guess it's the motherboard. For the age of this computer I would bin it and purchase a new or refurbished computer depending on your budget. I am not sure if this computer has a normal hard drive but if it does you can pull it and attach it to another computer using a USB adapter to remove any personal data.
