If the cable from the laptop is connected to the TV, you've selected the VGA input and see no signal, you probably haven't enabled the laptop's VGA output connector. Somewhere on the keyboard will be a function key with a little monitor screen on it. Hold down the F or Fn key and press the monitor key and it will switch on the external monitor connector. On some monitors, the first press shuts off the laptop screen when it turns on the external connector. If yours does that, press the key a second time to turn the laptop screen back on.

It's probably overheated in the past usually when they're set down on a bed & can't breath as the cooling fan is sucking air in from underneath. when that happens the fan sometimes needs replacing as they have the temp sensor built in & if that or the fan has gone then the laptop wont start, see if the fan moves at all when it tries to power up!
that usually proves the sensor is gone, but it's moretime something in the safety circit stopping it from starting up!
most shops can repair this easier if you give them a pointer as to what may be wrong as if you've left it in places where it cannot breath then tell them tha & they will check the fan first!
Hope this helped !

if it is 2 6v batteries wired in series, then the main leads would be connected to the positive of one battery and the negative of the other battery, and then another wire would connect the remaining terminals of the two batteries together

Try pressing [F11] repeatedly on Start-up, to access the Factory Recovery Partition.....
However, PLEASE note that you will NOT find Windows 7 drivers for your laptop if it is that old. (confirmed, HP only supports XP on that model.)
IOW....*IF* you could manage to get win7 to install on it, it is HIGHLY likely that parts of it would not work....video, network, cardbus slot, audio.....all of these would need windows 7 drivers to work properly.
you would likely be able to see a monitor image, but not be able to change the resolution much (stuck at 800x600) and the others....would be hit and miss. and if your network adapters (LAN and WLAN) did not work, I'm not sure of what use it would be to you.....
This is one of the pit-falls in Laptop/Notebook ownership. Although some models have lasted through more than one OS, they are a tiny minority.
