Re: HP laptop lights up, but screen stays black

Get a flashlight.

 

Start your notebook and darken the room. Shine the flashlight on the notebook.

 

Can you see a very dim Windows login screen?

If you can then, that mean that the LCD screen backlight  has failed and must be replaced.

If you do not see a dim Windows login screen, then the screen has failed and must be replaced with a new one.

 

Is your notebook still within its warranty coverage period?  Warranty status check web page

 

Best regards,
