Here are some suggestions to try. Your display settings may have somehow been changed, or your video card may not be working properly. If it is a display setting problem you can try to attach another known good monitor to the analog video out port of your laptop, turn it on and see what happens. If there is no output to the attached monitor do a hard shut-down by holding down the laptop's power button until it powers off. then turn it on again. With any luck your attached monitor will have a display. You can then go into the "display" settings of the control panel and reset your "settings" tab of the "display" screen. If you are running vista it will be under the "video" screen of the control panel. If this does not work you may need to have the problem assessed by a technician to diagnose your video and screen hardware. Good luck to you.

switch on press f8, go to safe mode. when its loaded go start - control panel - device manager - disable all yellow flagged drivers by right clicking on them, leaving just display, then boot up again into normal windows and go back into drivers and enable each 1, 1 at a time..
You may want to check your dispaly properties to make sure that your display is set to HDMI instead of laptop display in the control panel under display properties. On many laptops, this can be done by pressing the "fn" key and a key with a blue symbol of two screens on it. This toggles between your primary display and external ones.
Try lowering your display settings when it is hooked up to the external monitor. Then try the laptop screen again.
Right click an open area of the desktop, select properties, click the display tab. In the lower left of the box there is a settings slider, try lowering the settings and see if it gets better.
Hi, Your display drivers could be corrupt. Boot the machine into safe mode. Right click on Computer and select manage from the sub menu. When the window pops up select Device Manager. A
device list will populate. When it has look down the list for Display
Adapters. Click on the + icon next to Display Adapters to it expands.
Right click on the display adapter and select uninstall.
Restart the computer and let it boot in normal mode. If it boots in normal mode let it detect the Display and install the drivers for it. I would be a good idea to update the display drivers via the HP support website.
It is normal for the bottom to get hot. The fan should keep it cool enough to run, but it sounds like perhaps your fan is not working very well anymore and should be replaced.
Does the computer act up at all when cool? If not, the first thing I would try is replacing the fan and examining the fan and heatsink assembly for proper installation, perhaps replace the heatsink compound with some Arctic Silver while you have it open.
Go to this Hp website for you could have a grapgics chip fault. One way to test is to plug a VGA monitor into the VGA outlet port on the upper left side of you laptop and start it up. If you get a clear display you have a screen problem - next step remove the external monitor and again boot up but in a darkened room to see if your backlight is off - if you can just see the HP logo in the back ground then your backlight has failed or more rightly - the backlight micro switch under your R/H hinge has failed. A cheap fix. If there is no display external or TFT your Nvidia graphics chip has failed. m/board replacement required BUT you may qualify for free m/board replacement under
