Question about HP Compaq nc6220 Notebook
There is no activity on the monitor at all. Power up, the computer spins the drive, lights are working, but no screen activity. Not even a motherboard boot screen. Is there a way to fix the computer or does it need to be hacked?
Plug in an external monitor to see if it is booting normally and it is only a screen malfunction.
If you plug in an external monitor and the screen works then it's just a monitor issue.
If the external monitor doesn't light up then try unplugging the power cord, taking out the battery, holding down the power button for a minute and then plugging the AC back in trying to power it up.
If it doesn't power up. Then it's probably a motherboard issue.
I would get an external hard drive enclosure (2.5) and take out the harddrive and plug it into another computer to take the data off.
You can then send in your computer to repair somewhere but for the price, you may as well buy a new one.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions
even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause this problem or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
hope this helps you
