Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2214us Notebook ?

My laptop(HP Pavilion dv2214us) is turnnig-on and the lights are on but no screen. I have attached a monitor but did not see any thing


Answers :

You need to attach the monitor and turn it on before you boot up the laptop. This will automatically switch the video data to the external monitor. If you don't get a normal Windows image then you could have a faulty video card or faulty memory.
\015\012In a laptop the video card uses part of the main RAM (memory), try re-seating the RAM module/s and see if this corrects the problem.
\015\012If not you could have faulty RAM module/s, take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test them for you. If these are OK then you definitely have a faulty video chip problem. This is part of the motherboard and the fix is a replacement motherboard.
\015\012Replacing the motherboard may not be a cost effective solution, but it depends upon the age of the laptop and the costs of repair.
\015\012If you decide to get a new laptop, you can salvage the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.
Firstly after connecting the external monitor, did you activate it using the hotkey, ie fn + f5? If yes and nothing happened I would presume that the graphics chip may be faulty.
