2012 is my year of computer hell
I have this HP Compaq, which cost me a few thousand dollars 6 years ago. The screen went black about ten days ago, but the computer was still running in the background, and if I press the lid close switch on the monitor the screen lights up for half a second. After endlessely trolling on the internet I came to the conclusion that my inverter was the problem.
So I ordered a new inverter, did the step by step instruction and changed it myself. Lord and behold it worked and everything was working again and I was very proud of myself.
24 hours later I walk into my home office and yes the screen is black again with the same problem.
I am close to throwing out this laptop but cannot really aford a new one right now. Can anyone here help me, please?
Could this be a virus? Rkill cannot find anything.
Thank you in advance,
