My laptop has just recently started having problems with the monitor coming back up after the lid has been closed. When the lid is opened all I get is a blank screen. No amount of hitting enter or any keys bring it up.
I actually have to turn it completely off and back on to get the monitor to display.

Well if you are sure the computer is running, then you could have a bad inverter, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, if you see the icons and computer booting, then you have a bad inverter, go on amazon and order another LCD. also if you have a desk top monitor, connect the monitor to your laptop, then boot up your laptop, hold down the "FN" (function) button and press "F4", you should see everything on your desktop monitor. Good luck.
1plug in monitor 2.right click desktop go to properties (on XP) or screen resolution (on 7 or vista) you should see two boxes labeled one and 2 double click 2 that's you monitor...on xp in the properties window go to settings tab to find that option, if it does not show up reset your computer with external monitor plugged in and repeat process if necessary if that doesn't work you need to update driver for your graphics card/chip
Ok. I have this exact same laptop and not so much the exact same issue. But I can tell you, screen issues are one of the problems that goes with a laptop that is GOING TO FAIL.
hplies.com and you will see almost 2,000 users with the same issue. The
problem lies with the nVIDIA GFX chip on the motherboard. THE ISSUE IS
UNREPAIRABLE. Any repairs will force the laptop to fail again.
issue has actually landed me in small claims court where I am suing for
hte full cost of this laptop because not only is hte laptop defective,
nVIDIA admitted it, and HP covered it up.

try removing battery and small watch battery and disconnect power for 10 min then replace and restart. If it comes back on it will do it again when you turn it off, so don't, lol. I have this problem and everyone says these have motherboard problems. From what I can see they don't remember bios on startup. I'm still searching, Hope this helps.
First thing to do is to plug your laptop into a monitor. 99% of laptops i have seen have a monitor connection on the rear or somewhere on the laptop.
Then if you are certain the machine is working ok, you can look closer at the screen being the problem. It may not be the problem. For laptops with dead screens out of warranty, making it an IMmobile computer by adding a monitor is often a good solution. Turn it into a PC. Most laptops will also have somewhere to plug a mouse and keyboard.
need to hook an external monitor up to it at least once to isolate the problem. So you can find out if it is the on-board video or some other internal component in the laptop playing up, or if the screen is simply shot.
Most laptops have a video connector that you can use to connect you laptop to an external monitor. connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if anythig comes up on the external monitor.Your laptop has a key to switch between it's own screen and the external monitor.When you use the external monitor ,you'll have to use this key to switch to the monitor.Your battery should'nt matter if the laptop is running on AC.Let me know what happens and we'll go from there.
