Question about Computers & Internet
The problem is with your video adapter (the port on your computer that connect the cable from your HP Pavilion to your monitor.
From HP Support:
Inspect the video cable and video connectors for damage. Check for sharp bends or breaks in the cable and bent or broken pins at the connectors. With the monitor and computer off, try to straighten bent pins with a small metal tube, like the tip of an empty mechanical pencil or the tip of a retracted pen. If you had to straighten any pins, reconnect the monitor making sure that the video cable is firmly connected and then turn on the computer and monitor. If the display is still blank, you'll need to add a video card.
But, your system has an on-board video adapter, (no video card). You'll need to disable the on-board video in the BIOS to prevent possible setup problems. But, since there is no display, you'll need to perform this after you add the video card:
NOTE: In some cases, the BIOS does not have the option to disable the onboard video. In this case, select AGP or PCI as the primary output. The BIOS and the operating system should then detect the new video card instead of the onboard video.
