I don't quite know if this topic falls under internal hardware but if not could someone still help me. I have a compaq presario cq56. The screen has disconnected from the keyboard. But when i turn on my computer, it starts up just fine but the screen is completely gray. As in gray gray....I know it still works underneath the gray screen. But i don't know if it's because the screen has almost completely disconnected from the keyboard. Can someone please tell me what I need to do? I want to revive my computer because it has everything on there and I don't want to start from scratch.  :nono:  :mellow:

The easiest way to do this is just use an external monitor. It will make the PC immobile, but this is the easier way.

 

Next comes trying to fix the screen so it shows good video. This is much more difficult. I presume the PC was dropped?? Anyway, here are two links to sites that give you teardown help;

 

The Presario CQ56 manual,,, http://www.manualslib.com/manual/30162/Compaq-Presario-Cq56.html?#manual .
