I have an hp pavilion n5430 that wont power up. The lights on the front light up but thats it. What could be wrong?

Hi Friend,

If You have External monitor at your place pls connect to your laptop and check whether you are getting external display on monitor screen, if there is no display on external monitor that means motherboard of your laptop might have some problem. if that is the case you have to visit service centre.

Use the standard VGA cable from computer to the External monitor. after connecting click Fn+F4 keys once or twice. Also there is another method; you can reboot the computer while external monitor connected.
