I am working on a friends HP laptop. The display is not working at all. He said that it started after installing some software from the net that was suppose to be some type of PC maintanance software. I have ran Malwarebytes and it found a number of issues. Two of the major issues was a rogue errorrepairtool and the vundo trojan. The only issue at this time that I see with this machine is the display does not work. If you plug in an external display using either the s-video or VGA port the external will work. I can not even find the laptop display listed in the device manager or the Nvidia control panel. I have seen viruses and malware do some wierd things but this is new to me.
The computer is running Vista 64 and is a HP DV9920us.
Any help would be appreciated.
