Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook
Upon initial boot the compaq logo is just barely visible after that the screen stay dark. Attaching an external monitor works fine. No hardware errors are present. The machine has not been dropped or damaged in any way. Symptom "just arose" during a boot up. Battery ad charger are fine.
Is this perhaps a video invertor problem? If that is possible is there any way to test to be sure?
Sounds like the inverter has gone, the only way to test this is to remove the laptop lid, remove the bezel (front plastic cover) please take care not to crack or splitt the plastics, then get an electical tester and test the inverter coil to make sure a current runs through it, if it doesn't its the coil, if it does you need a new inverter, the coil is located under the plastic sheath
