Laptop Turns on but Black Screen help?

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1245dx laptop and everytime I turn it on, it has a black screen. Everything else lights up like the QuickPlay strip with the lights and stuff but the screen is always black.

Re: Laptop Turns on but Black Screen help?

Can you point a bright flashlight at the screen, and see if you see an image on the screen?

Re: Laptop Turns on but Black Screen help?

I have the same problem on my dv6t-3000; the screen is black when I first turn on the notebook and it goes to the windows welcome screen. I can tell the computer is running, though, the startup noise goes and the fingerprint scanner can be used to login. However, the screen remains black.

Re: Laptop Turns on but Black Screen help?

Laptop display screen is black and therefore unable to conveniently use computer. However  the external display works.  I have been having this problem every time the system updates and a re-start is needed. Is my computer faulty as I currently have another HP computer which I have owned for 2 years and have never experienced this problem.

I you can see  image in the absence of light, be sure that the lamp is the pblem and you have to change it.  You can do it by yourself, just go through internet and look for a maintenance site. I did it two years ago and it worked correclty.

Re: Laptop Turns on but Black Screen help?

I wanted to know what you did with your laptop. I have the same problem with an HP Envy 15 laptop, and I am trying to avoid sending my computer in for a week.
