HELP!!!! I have 3 laptops that boot but show no video output regardless of the source.

HP Pavilion DV6 . Odd thing is that there is no license information on the back of the laptop to determine the exact model or serial number. I have never seen a laptop like that. The only license information is for windows.

Screen is broke so she was using an external monitor. Turned it on and the monitor didn’t react. Tried HDMI and still nothing. I want to replace the screen but now I am having the problem of NO video output at all so I can’t access any command screens.

2  I have 2 Toshiba Satellites L505D-S5983 & L655S PSK2LU

L505D-S5983  Did a restore disk for windows 7 and screen miraculously popped up. Updated drivers and cleaned it up. Week later, same problem.. she turned it on and got a blank screen.

 L655S PSK2LU  Tried the repair disk but got nothing.

I have been told that the video card is integrated into the motherboard but there HAS to be another way around it no?

I hate to think that these are now useless with the amount of money they invested. Both laptops have no warrantees.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I have researched online and have tried the taking the battery out and hitting different function keys but to no avail. Thank you.

Did you buy them together used in this condition? Sounds like a main board defect with the graphics chip.

They are actually from 3 different people...I was hoping that was not the case... I am not a genius with computers but I dabble in them and my family sends them to me. Most I can do is put out feelers and try to help them. Thanks for your input.
