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.
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.
