Just got cq56-115dx laptop this morning. turned it off after setting it up. Turned it back on and only have blank screen. Power shows lit up.


Remove the AC power (charger) and then take the battery out. Plug in just the AC power supply and turn the laptop on, see if it boots up and shows a display on-screen. If it boots let it boot up and then shut it down as normal. Reinsert the battery and try as normal.
If you still get a blank screen can you then tell me if you get any post (splash) information like the Compaq Presario logo before it goes blank.

Good luck.

BLANK SCREEN ON MY hp compaq nx9420. my laptop was working fine and then when restarted I got a blank screen. The power LED and cahrging LED both light up but screen remains blank. have changed the video...

Did it display any video at all with boot options or HP logo? Any POST test or beeps after you started the laptop?
Try removing the power ac adapter and battery. then only boot it up with just the AC adapter (no battery).
Good Luck, JAJ

Will not power up, no lights or sound

tried to remove battery and ac for a little while?

if that doesnt work, remove battery and ac-power.
remove the ram
put ac-power back and try to boot without ram
(do you get a beep/error?)
remove the ac again
insert the ram
insert battery
insert ac
try to boot up again.

if that doesnt work its probably a mainboard error and you need to take the computer to repair.

Should my HP510 laptop work without a battery

Yes your laptop should power on with just AC power. The issue could be a loose connection for the AC power which caused the battery to stop being able to charge also. Unfortunately only solution for that if it is incase the problem is to open the laptop and have the power connector re soldered onto the board.
