View Full Version : G51Vx Display Issue

Good evening ROGers!
I come to you in desperation. I have a G51 that the screen is black and I cannot figure out why. Here is what I have tried:
Ordered new screen (thought the old one was bad).
Verified it is working by hooking up an external monitor.
Used bright light to see that the video card is working.
Researched what I could and from what I have read/found is that there is no inverter... at least not one I have found, although the last time I had a laptop act like this it was the inverter.
I have tried to let it sit without a battery/power for 24 hours. I have tried the pull battery/power and hold the power button for 30-45 seconds.

I have Googled for days and tried all the tricks I could.... any help you could provide would be helpful! Thank you in advance!

so if you hook it to an external display, it works?

Yup... if it's on the laptop monitor, I can see it with a bright light and if I hook a monitor up and switch to it, it works just fine. It sounds like a bad inverter... but this doesn't have an inverter board.

Thanks for replying btw!
