Re: monitor not working
If your laptop seems like its going through all the motions to boot up, take a good look at the screen WHILE its booting. In a well lit room, look at the screen from an angle, see if you see any(really faint) images or text in the screen. If you see stuff in the screen while its booting, then you have an issue with either the backlight inverter or the backlight itself.
Both of which I would take it to a repair shop to do, it will insure you get the right part.
Next if the above doesn't work, you can reseat the memory (ram). The memory on most laptop are accessible from the bottom of the laptop via an access panel. Make sure laptop is OFF, remove the memory stick/s and reseat them.
Also another thing you can try, if you have a normal PC monitor. Plug in the monitor to the vga plug on the side of the laptop. Make sure the monitor is on. Fire up the laptop, then use the key sequence to send display to external monitors. On your model it should be "Fn + F4" keys. See if you get a display on the external monitor.
If you get nothing from any of these test, it appears you may have a failed GPU (Graphics Processor Unit) on the motherboard. Which would require a motherboard replacement.
Hope this helps. If it does please rate my solutions.

Normally is because the battery is empty or in an error state.
If you plug the power cord and the led still blinking, disconect everything, turn your laptop and search how to take out the battery, wait 1 minute then replug it again and try.
If you hear it start up and the lights come on, try hooking up an external monitor. When you do, be sure to push the Fn key plus whatever special function key shows 2 monitors on it so the output will be directed to the external monitor. Sounds like the LCD screen might not be working.
go into the BIOS settings and tell it to use the LCD/Monitor as a display.
press fn key+(F5 or F7 or F8) 1x or 2x or 3x.....
Fn key combination. The Fn key is located
at the lower left of the keyboard, normally between the CTRL and the ALT
key. Toshiba uses Fn-F5 to toggle between the laptop LCD and an external
display. IBM or Lenovo uses FN-F7, Acer varies with the model, using Fn-F5,
Fn-F3, Fn-F8, Sony Fn-F7, Dell Fn-F8, HP or Compaq, Fn-F4. There are variations
with the age of the laptop and not all manufacturers have standardized on
a key combo across the whole range, but you can usually figure it out from
the little graphics on the function keys that line the top of the keyboard.
As the notebook does not boot up and as you have already reseated the memory modules and tried connecting external monitor and as the issue is unresolved. It is clear that the issue is due to internal hardware malfunction of the system board of the notebook. However, before confirming the same, I would recommend you to perform hard reset which would discharge the static charges from the notebook. You can follow the steps listed below to perform hard reset:
1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station. 2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment. 3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. 4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC. 5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.
This will remove the discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now turn on the PC and check for the issue. If the issue persists, then it is clear that the issue due to internal hardware malfunction of the notebook and requires an onsite diagnosis. At this point, if your notebook is under factory warranty then I would recommend you to contact HP to get your notebook repaired under warranty.
hi...if u can read " no input signal" from ur screen, this means that ur monitor is ok.. Look if u have power buttons on ur keyboard.. try to wake it from there.. some pc may have shortcut keys to bring back the pc... look @ ur pc docs on the internet for more info... However if it's a hardware issue, it may be that ur RAM memory needs to be cleaned
Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
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.
