Last week, I opened up my HP Envy m6 Sleekbook in the morning, and the screen remained blank and black. I tried closing the screen and opening it again several times, as well as forcing a restart with the power button, but no luck.
I closed it and gave up for a few hours. Later in the day, I came back and opened it up, and it was working as usual.
Today the same problem is happening again. It's been a few hours and still no display.
To troubleshoot, I tried connecting my laptop to my TV with an hdmi cord. As it turns out, when I do this I can see my screen on the TV as expected.
There is no back light or anything on my laptop screen, just dark, blank nothingness. I tried shining a light on the screen to see if I could see anything (maybe the back light was just totally fried) but still didn't see anything.
So I'm thinking I'm going to have to get a new screen/laptop at this point, but before I did that I wanted to post here to see if there was anything else to try.
