Hi, Juliemanteca. Yes, your screen is broken, maybe some other parts too. If you are still under warranty or purchased it with a credit card you may have an additional warranty extention (Credit Card extended warraties cover accidents so may your house insurance policy) To pursue this makes sense as the laptop screen is the most expensive part of any laptop.

You will need to take this into a HP certified repair shop or most likely send it back to HP. HP will want to exchange it for a refurbished one but before you accept that as an option be certain to insist they "Clone" your hard drive over to the refurbished replacement if at all possibble (I'll explain a little later) and get that in writing from them in an email. Cloning replicates your hard drive exactly as it was. The Gforce needed to break your screen could easily damage your hard drive too if your laptop was running when your dog damaged it, and thus they (HP) probably offering you a refurbished replacement. If you don't already have one ask for a new recovery disc should the refurbished laptop be a newer model than your current laptop.

Should your warranty rights have expired even with the credit card doubling the warranty period please consult your insurance agent. You probably have a deductible but the cost of a new screen or even a laptop will cost more than your deductible.

If you find my solution fixes your dilemma PLEASE rate this solution as Fixed.

If you have any further questions of me please do not hesitate to respond with a comment back or click on my name_link and select Ask Me. I'll be most willing to assist you further.

Thanks Juliemanteca.

Regards,
Glenn

Connect an external monitor to the VGA port, look to see if there is a key to toggle between internal lcd and external monitor, on my lap top it is <FN><F5>, on my Dell it is <FN><F8>

if the display is normal then the problem could be the ribbon cable connector, the inverter, or the LCD. If the external display is bad also the the problem is the video card or if embedded, the mother board is bad.

I cant log into my facebook account. i just have a white screen


To Fix a white screen issue:
FB has thousands of servers so you know their site is not down. It can only be a few things that cause a white screen. If you can get to other websites you have a good connection. So that leaves it is a browser issue, shortcut or a app issue. I don't know what device you're on but for:
Web browser- Go to settings and reset to default.
Shortcut - Go to your browser search and search for facebook and click on the link and when it loads create a new shortcut and delete the old shortcut.
App - For mobile device app the app may have corrupted. Uninstall it and download a new app.
It is one of those areas, you will have to use another device to google how to do those in detail i.e. Google "How to reset Google Chrome". To survive in the digital age I have some fundamental
Rules of Technology
1. Always have more than one computer. You need a computer to fix a computer. (And if someone asks to use your computer, point them to the other computer. They a PCs, personal computers as in yours).

Feed dogs won't go up on my Babylock Ellegant


the thread may be jammed beneath the feet and you can't see this from your view. take the feet off and you'll probably discover the beginning of the thread jam. Use patience getting the thread out. It is better to cut than pull (that'll leave just enough behind to start another jam and then it'll be time for a break)

When i turn on my laptop, it does not show anything. All it shows is just the white screen and nothing else. when i turn off my laptop(by pressing F4), i hear the sound that would usually come out when it...


your screen wiring may have gone bad. if you plug a regular monitor into the laptop, try pressing function + F4 or one of the F keys at the top. It should have a little monitor icon on it. Its a different key on some laptops. It will switch the display to use the monitor. Are you able to get a picture that way?

Screen is blank unless a flashlight is shown on the screen. Prior to this happening laptop was dropped and the left hinge broke off. Could something else have broken off?


sounds like the backlight system of your screen is broken. You may have to take it to a laptop repair shop, preferably an authorized service center to have it fixed
