Blank Laptop screen - intermittent
My HP Pavillion dv9500 laptop screen has gone blank. The computer works fine
and is able to use a monitor plugged into the VGA port. I thought the screen
just went out, it's just over 2 years old and of course, 2 months out of
warrenty. However, after the sceen had not worked for about a week, it came
back on. I was using the laptop with a monitor, and all of a sudden, a window
popped up and asked if I wanted to duplicate the 2nd monitor or stretch the
desktop across both monitors. I looked over at the laptop screen, and sure
enough, it was back on! I turned off the computer, and turned it back on the
next day and the screen was out again and has not came back on since. I have
updated the video card drives, seperate nVidia GeForce card, not integrated.
I have yet to take the laptop apart to check cables because I have not played
around with a laptop, only desktops. Thanks for any suggestion...
