LAPTOP POWER GOES ON BUT NOT SCREEN/NO DISPLAY

[ Edited ]

Hello, ive been having my laptop for about 2 years & a few days ago, I was using my laptop at night & it was  perfectly normal, then the next morning I tried turning it on but no display whatsoever, just plain black. The power/battery is working perfectlly though. I tried a few things, I disconnected charger & took out battery & held the power button for 2 minutes about 3 times and nothing happened & I also switched the memory cards & nothing happened!! I would take my laptop to get fixed but I recently started college so I want to know what else can be wrong with it or how I can fix it :smileyindifferent:

 

by the way I have an hp Pavillion g4

Hi,

 

Please try this test: connect your machine to an external monitor (or a TV). If also no display that means something wrong with the graphics card otherwise something wrong with the laptop screen.  We can work from there.

 

Regards.
