Screen won't work on HP laptop

\015 My HP laptop(only year and a few months old)screen won't come on. All the lights on the keyboard and surrounding areas come on and I can hear the computer working but the screen is just black..\015

Answers :

This may be caused by the video graphics cards. If you have a warranty, check with HP and they will fix for free as they warranty all hardware for two years.
\015\012You can check to make sure it is the video graphics or the screen by running a simple test. Get a monitor and attach the laptop to the monitor. If you see a picture, then the screen (probably backlight) is out. If you do not see anything, then it is definetly your video graphics card. You can order a new screen or VGA card on eBay, which I highly recommend to save money. Get a friend or you can put it in, just make sure you put the laptop back together perfectly and protect from static electricity.
\015\012It is easier to get another replacement screen if the backlight is out because these can be hard to replace. The backlight usually cost a couple of dollars but the frustration of trying to replace is like trying to replace a lightbulb in a very tight spot. A screen will run you around 40 dollars. If it's the VGA, then you are looking at 60-90 dollars.
Try to hook the computer to an external monitor using a vga cord or super video, whichever you have. Set the tv to that input and see if the laptop switches over to it. If you see the computer image on the tv, then you very well may have a damagesd and dead screen. Those can be purchased online on ebay for around 100-150 bucks. I can give you a service manual and an LCD replacement manual if that is the case. If you don't get a picture on either one then you have probably lost the video card or video processor.
