If you have a boot menu the problem is likely not the Bios. No beep codes? Some PC's will give hardware error codes in the form of long and short beeps through the MB speaker. Otherwise a bad boot sector on the hard drive would likely give you an error message, like ; NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
Check the power and ribbon wire connections to the hard drive. If you have recovery disc/'s, doesnt hurt to try! Otherwise its a new operating system, new hard drive, and searching for drivers. Good luck to you!
Sounds like you have a short in your display plug or the display itself.You also should try different or new ram sticks to eliminate ram as the cause.Try an external monitor also to see if there is any video showing.Technicians seem to always say the motherboard is bad to get the most money when the motherboard most of the time isn't bad its whats connected to it(ram,display,cd/dvd drives etc.
Please do not panic....The first thing what we need to do is perform a hard reset...What does Hard Reset mean... Unplug the A/C Adapter Pin from the notebook...Turn the notebook upside down and then remove the battery from the notebook...Turn the notebook in the upright position and then press the power button for 30 seconds without the battery and without the A/C Adapter Pin connected to the notebook... After 30 seconds place the battery in the battery outlet and connect the A/C Adapter pin and restart the notebook...Check if you can see anything on the screen....If you can't see anything on the screen then please perform a forced shutdown by pressing the power button down until all the lights have turned off...Then as soon as you restart the notebook press the F10 key continously on the keyboard...It will take you to the BIOS Screen... Check if you see the screen...If the screen is still blank then don't perform the next step....Click N for No...Then press the F9 key and then select Y as in Yes...again press the F10 Key then press Y and it will boot to the desktop.... still you have the same problem then perform a recovery....If the screen is blank in the BIOS Menu then try connecting an External Monitor...If you cannot see anything on the screen it is a problem with your video card or monitor you will have to contact HP since your fan does not work...If you have any other queries please don't hesitate to contact me and i will help you with the same.....
Depending upon your BIOS manufacturer, generally this POST error code means either a video card problem or a motherboard problem.
If the RAM is OK then you have a motherboard problem, and this may not be cost effective to fix. Consider putting your money towards a new laptop, remove the hard disk and put it into an external USB adapter case and use it as an USB hard drive for backup etc.
try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
give me more info
Had the same problem: the battery is simply exhausted. Suggest you buy a new battery. A possible solution you might try is to connect it to a charger and make a hard reset (loosing all data and programs stored). Good luck
