Black Screen on Amilo Pi 1505

Postby dominus_matthaeus » Fri Jun 19, 2009 1:45 pm

My Amilo Pi 1505 bought in May 2007 was working fine when I shut it down Wednesday night. Thursday morning, without even having moved it, all that appeared when I switched it on was a black screen. The battery light & assorted sounds still seem to be activating when I switch it on, but no way I can tell whether or not Windows is booting.

Any chance this can be fixed?

I've tried conneting the PC to an external monitor but nothing happens, probably because I can't get into Windows. Is there any way to activate the external screen without being able to log into windows to check what I'm doing?

You can switch between internal and external display by pressing Fn+F4 (multiple times).

You can check whether Windows booted by trying to shut it down blindly. I've never done this on an english system but I guess pressing [Windows] -> [Up] -> [Enter] -> [S] should do the trick. Maybe you'll have to log in blindly as well, depending on your setup. Pressing [Tab] two times and then [Enter] should log in the first user in the login screen.

You might want to try this on a system with a working screen.
If this was successfull the notebook should switch off on its own.
