Question about Compaq Armada E500 Notebook
I had my notebook connected to a docking station with an external moniter,a wireless mouse and keyboard, and wirelesw network card attached. After a pretty bad thunderstorm which knocked out the power my notebook would boot up(I could hear the windows start-up sounds) but I had no display. I checked the ext4ernal moniter and it was not working. I attached my notebook to a working external moniter and it had the display but I still don't have a display on my laptop. What should I try to fix this?
Hi Jeryl; Im sorry to have to te3ll you but when the power went out it sent a surge to the external monitor . This blew the monitor which in turn blew your video display. This is a not so uncommon problem with laptop displays. They are very fragile. Especially when it comes to power urges. The only way you can fix this is to replace the monitor. Even this may not fix the problem. It could be any one of a few thousand parts inside your laptop. Best advice would be to let your local repair shop do the repair. Hope this has helped. If it has please accept this answer. Thank you; HELP2DIY
