Welcome to Fixya. Please follow the steps below so that you can use the mirror or clone display
1. Go into Display Control Panel
2. Click Settings tab
3. Click Monitor 2
4. UNCHECK "Extend my Windows desktop..."
5. Click Monitor 1
6. Click Advanced
7. Click ATI Displays tab
8. In here, the display you're trying to clone to should have a red icon in the corner. Click the red icon, then click Apply. It'll turn on the external display and ask you to confirm.

You should now have a mirrored/cloned external display!

Lcd screen will not light up

You can check to see if the rest of the laptop is working ok, by toggling to an external monitor, by holding down your function key and hitting the monitor swap key, usually f5 thru f8, depending on the laptop. If you get a good display on a external monitor, then you are down to needing a LCD inverter board, or a new LCD.

I have a hpdv6000 series laptop and recently it

I believe that your LCD panel is the problem, but you should verify that you have good video, by toggling to an external monitor to check your output. If it dispays good, you have an LCD problem.

Computer is on, black screen?

If you have an external monitor try hooking that up, if it works then either your LCD is bad orTry toggling the Fn + the function keys with a monitor on it You may have your output mode switch to the external port on your laptop.
If you power it on and you see nothing at all, not even the BIOS then your motherboard is toast

Screen will not function. No video at all.

here's what you can do.
it might be blank due to the togle feature so try this

***'Monitor Toggle Features (Converting the Screen Using the Shortcut Key) If you have an external monitor connected to the computer, press Fn + F7 keys to rotate the display mode between LCD only, Monitor only, and LCD + Monitor both in order.'***
as long as you hold Fn and press F7 these mode's will change in order respectively.
if the issue was due to the inappropriate display mode it can be fixed by toggling.

since your display is totally blank... you need to find out weather it is the screen or the video card in the notebook. either ways if hardware is faulty your guarantee should cover it.

In case, you are looking for Manual in English you can find it by googling up your Notebook model number.

If the issue were with the display adpters or drivers then you can fix them by connecting and toggling to external monitor.

Dual monitors

Most laptops have a function key to set which monitor is active. By toggling this key, you switch between laptop screen, external screen, and both.
On the keyboard, the key is usually Fn pushed together with one of the function keys that has a monitor logo above it.
