Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My three year old son stepped on my HP Windows Vista laptop while the screen was down, when I opened it to see if there was any damage all of the colors were inverted. I tried to fix the problem (thinking it was only stuck in high contrast mode) by pressing alt shift PRTSC but realized that it didn't work. All the colors are literally inverted. Is my computer stuck like this?

    Hi,


    Most likely your laptop has taken some physical damage to the display. Have you tried connecting the laptop to an external monitor yet?


    Sincerely,

I would say its most likely is because it's physical damage done and not like hardware damage done to it so i would say you have to get it fixed

HP dv9000 getting power but dark monitor


It is probably that the inverter or the backlights have packed up

Turn the machine so that a strong light shines on the screen from the side you may then see the windows splash screen in the background.

Other check is to plug another monitor into the port on the laptop if that works then it is down to the inverter
