Having problems with your Compaq Armada M700 Notebook ?

LCD Monitor isn't recognized

\015 I had the DC power jack repaired on my Armada M700. After reassembling the system I booted up and started out fine. Compaq Logo came up when Laptop made jump to Bios screen went black. I thought perhaps a bad connection no such luck. Hooked up an external monitor to test. Booted up Compaq logo on the LCD, jumps to bios LCD goes black and external monitor took over. Laptop runs fine other than LCD won't come up. Went into bios change settings no luck. Change Video driver no luck. I can't figure out what it is. It isn't mechanical all connections are solid. Has to be in the bios but I flashed updated bios and it still won't work. Anyone overcome this problem in the past? I am stumped.\015
