    Ok so i'm running windows Xp and i shut down my computer and restart it like your supposed to and then when i restart my monitor is blank yet i can hear all of the sounds of start up. So i shut it down again and i still come up with a blank screen and now i'm using a external monitor to view my desktop. Now when i look at my laptops monitor i can vaguely see what i'm doing at all and the external monitor is fine. Also my laptop is creating alot of heat. I'm sure it overheating and i want to know how to fix these two problems can anybody help?

    Try adjusting the brightness on the problematic screen. By blank screen, do you mean only a white blank screen or screen without icons and taskbar?

    Sticky. Is the problem at your PC or at the laptop?

    Then I'm not sure about anything, but I think that the problem is BIOS related, and how I don't know much about BIOS, then I would rather say that I haven't any more ideas, than to make the problem even more problematic.

    Good day, and good luck with solving this problem, Smartguy01
