Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Hey, My laptop is always connected to an external monitor using HDMI, usually on extend. When I use the display toggle (Fn+f4) to disconnect the external monitor the laptop screen blinks and then stops working all together. So do the keyboard and touch pad. My display only comes up on the external monitor. If I wait for awhile everything goes back to normal but it happens almost every time. Any idea how to stop this from happening?

What PC full name? what OS?
so are you saying you want both screens the same time.?
the operators guide answer this.
dV7, what, you didnt post the full model. ,
lots of DV7 made. 1000 to 6000 series. sorry cant guess.
is sleep mode off
and screen saver off/ hibenate off.
id read the users guide first, see what options are featured, on YOUR PC. 29 classes of dv7 and subclasses.
read your service tag to learn what you have.
then go here
WHAT OS came with your PC day1 new.,
is the current OS same as DAY1.? or upgraded some why..
if upgraded, to what?
all the 1000 series book says is this, "says it alternates"
or ask on the real forum HP?

SOURCE: Fn F4 Not working
try ur on screen keyboard.
start,al programs,accessories,accessability,on screen keyboard.
if any keyboard buttons are broke u can still use the functions with the on screen keyboard.
on one of my laptops the enter and del keys dont work so I use the on screen keyboard when I need the function of those keys.

Fn + F5 toggles the display output, the trick here to wait each time you hit this combination because it goes through several options. Hit it once and it may want to go to just the external, then both the laptop screen and the external. etc. Now Fn + F6 turns the backlight bulb off on the internal monitor to save energy. Now I am giving up the link to your service manual, it is in PDF format so you can make a copy for yourself and keep on the laptop, print it or save it to a flash so you can reference it later. I believe if you take the keyboard off and disconnect the video lead on the left side where the display plugs into the motherboard, then when you power the laptop back up it will default to the external cord and you can use the laptop without any switching. That is what I am doing with an Aspire 5920 that I am rebuilding. Good luck, ParrotHead PC Repair

I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.
