Neither the external nor the integrated monitor works.
From what I can tell it boots, I hear the windows startup sound.
But no monitors work on it, even the one I am using on my desktop pc at the moment does not work on it.
So it seems it might be a hardware issue.
So far I have reseated the ram and have tried 2 external monitors and the internal.
Any ideas.
The Laptop is an HP compaq 6830s.

 I used the laptop and eventually turned it off.
In the morning i turned it on because I had work to do on it, it booted but the monitor stayed black.
There is no feint image on it it's just black.
I get no beep or Led codes.
Just a black screen.

What kind of changes?
If you mean hardware all is stock, like it was when we bought it.
The laptop is from 2008.

did anything happen recently for this to cause this suddenly?

 

Is the Brightness level on high for the internal monitor

 

Is it plug in to the wall when you start it up.

 

What you can do if you have work on the hard drive is get an harddrive adapter (http://www.amazon.com/Apricorn-DriveWire-Universal-Adapter-ADW-USB-KIT/dp/B000QY9KIS) and remove the hard drive and plug it in to the adapter and use it on your desktop

I knew something like that could happen so I kept my work on a flash drive.
I just want to fix the laptop.
The brightness was at max I think, could that have caused any problems?
My guess it might be a problem with the output of the video card since the computer boots ok.
But I get no leds or beep codes.
