First thing I would do is try the monitor on another system to see if it's in the monitor or computer. Next would be to fire it up and see if you hear a beep from the motherboard. Most consumer pc's will come with a small speaker that sounds on startup. If you don't hear this beep it could be indicitave of a fried motherboard.

But it sounds to me like your video card or onboard video was messed up when the power supply conked out. If it's onboard video you may be able to switch to a video card. If it's a video card you may need to replace it.

Also check to make sure there are no loose wires, that your video card is seated firmly, and that your connectors are all snug. If none of this works then you're most likely looking at a motherboard replacement.

This might be a sign of a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.

Test with an external monitor attached to the laptop. If you get display on the external monitor, then this confirms the case.

No video out to monitor from desktop.


sure not hard at all. if the monitor is connected to the default onboard video adapter, this is usually one of the first things to malfunction on a new computer. if the monitor works when connected to another machine, but when connected to the desktop the monitors amber or orange light comes on but no video, this usually means there is a connection problem. usually most modern monitors will display a "no input" or "no video" message meaning the connection to the computer is bad. try getting a new video adapter (usually pci/pcie video card) and installing into the pci/pcie video slot in the back of the computer. most are plug and play and require little to no configuration. you should be able to find a nice one for about $20 - $30 dollars at www.tigerdirect.com . hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions.

You can connect any HDMI or VGA (15 pin) compatible monitor or TV, almost every monitor has VGA connector or VGA adapter at the end of connector and you can use it.

HP Pavillion won't turn on.


Hmm, did the CA damage any part of it? Sounds silly I know.
And is the power in the, Optical Disk Drive, HDD, Graphics Card and of course on the Motherboard?
Keep it on for about 40 minutes monitoring the heat ever so often even though there is nothing on the Monitor.
By the 40 Minutes it should be mid temp - Hot.
Best of Luck. Tom.

My HP Pavillion laptop turns on but the screen doesn't show.


You could be expierencing a problem with your monitor screen. try this.... connect another monitor screen to the VGA port of your laptop. Now try booting up. Look for and push Fn + the key that turns on a secondary display. if the monitor screen comes on. you need
another laptop monitor. At least you can use your laptop with the second monitor for now.
