Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
My laptop (HP Pavillion DV6000) is screen broken. I detached power and data from broken laptop screen and connected to the external monitor vga port. The external monitor is black with the cursor visible. I tried fn + f4 and nothing. How can I get the external monitor to act as the laptop screen. The screen was shot by a BB and is completley broken.
Suggestion- on my toshiba fn-f5 switches display modes, but to remove display connectors, you may have messed up your keyboard ribbon cable connection. it probably has a small sliding lock to hold it in place- if the lock isn't tight, your keyboard may not be recognized, which could mess up your display. Also, make sure your battery is charged and/or your power supply to your laptop is connected. hope this helps!

Testimonial: "thanks for the info but now trying to hardwire the laptop to the external monitor...wish me luck!"
I would back mothmans answer 100% but might suggest you re-assemble the display to the laptop if you continue to have problems getting an external display going.
