Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook
I have a hp pavillion dv000 laptop that I have used for about two years or so and all of a sudden its screen just went black...nothing. I cant even see a resemblence of my desktop when i turn it on although if i press the sleep button i can see the display for about a second. but, everytime i press the button it puts my whole computer in hibernation.
I dont know if the problem is my backlight, inverter, or my lcd, and even if i did i wouldnt know how to go about fixing it. I want to replace it completely with another laptop but there are some very important documents that i want to transfer over to my external hardrive first but cant because i cant see anything on it.
i thinkig about hooking it up to an external monitor another laptop but dont know how or what cord i would need to do that with. If that doesnt work, would i (or somebody else) be able to take out the C drive and put it in another laptop?
Initially, a couple of ideas ou may want to explore:

First of all the backlight, inverter, lcd is not the problem if you see any display, even for a second. An external monitor connects just like it would for your desktop computer -a 15-pin connector -the only connection for an external monitor. Do that connection while the computer is off! Fn + F7 switches between the lcd internal monitor and the external monitor if you do not see a display at boot on the external monitor. If you find that the video card/motherboard is history then the internal hard drive can be removed and connected to another laptop or desktop computer. There are inexpensive adaptors or hard drive cases that allow you to connect that drive to any computer. If you are not interested in doing that then you can also take that hard drive to a computer shop who can easily transfer that data to another hard drive, burn a cd/dvd or put it on the internet for you to download with another computer. The only consideration for putting the hard drive in another laptop is that you cannot boot from that drive on another laptop. If you use an adaptor to connect to a desktop then that hard drive will be a removable disk or slave, never the primary boot drive.
