Most laptop screens connect to the motherboard(and therefore to power) through a small cable which generally runs very close to the hinge on the right hand side.
This cable can come loose.
If your laptop appears ok in all other ways this might be the issue.
Just plug a normal monitor into the back and youll see if the laptop itself is working ok.
To reseat this cable involves opening up your laptop, which I wouldnt recommend if it is still in warranty or if you're not too sure of yourself

Com port is not displayed

COM ports are an old technology (parallel cable) and are not plug and play capable. Try turning off your laptop -> powering on the item you're trying to connect -> turn on laptop -> see if that works.

When the laptop is turned off, after a couple of hours the displays does not want to work. I can access the display after pressing F2 immediately upon powering back up.

Either you need to do a system restore, or update video card drivers or turn of hibernation mode. Hib mode really messes with laptops for some reason.

No display on V3000

The LCD requires alot of power so if your battery does not have enough juice in it
the computer just starts up the things that don't use as much power.
I would purchase a new battery and it will rectify what's going on.
