[HP Pavillion] Screen Issue [Solved]

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

My sisters HP laptop has lost its screen, Well here's the whole issue.

A while back she dropped it and cracked the LCD, its slowly has been getting worse. Then one day she was trying to do something in photoshop and the screen froze on her. so she shut it off and turned it back on and the screen froze again. Now when ever she turns on the computer, everything turns on except the screen.

I've tried plugging in a separate monitor and no signal. I've tried resetting by holding down the power button for 30 seconds.

Is there anything else i can try?

I do need to replace the screen she just has some data on the hdd that she needs asap so if I can get away with just a temp fix it would be nice.

Thanks

The cable connector on the LCD might have broke or something along those lines loosened etc.

If the HD is Sata, just plug it into your computer. That's what I did, and it worked ( had to transfer lots of files to desktop )

OH thats a great Idea Im going to go check out the specs on the drive and see.

Yea I figured that the screen went. But what I don't get is why its not finding the other monitor that I plug in.

no go on the sata drive


It is sata but its got some weird interface. instead of the normal L shaped connection its all little square pins that are aligned vertically. So I can't connect to my computer

For the drive most are put in a HDD cage to make insertion in the chassis easier. Remove it from the cage and you should see the normal sata connectors.
