Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a hp pavillion dv2315nr laptop with a black screen. In the past, I was always able to resolve the issue by pressing fn/f4 at start up which worked but takes a long time to kick in. Now however pressing fn/f4 ain't working anymore, and I got his permanent black screen with all the lcd lights on...but no display.


Answers :

When you power up the press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode then go to control panel ->display ->settings ->change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok then restart .
