Screen on dv7 4060us laptop will not come on

I have a Dv7 4060us laptop that just about now is a yr. old,it will power up but my screen will not come on.

And when I contacted hp customer service as usual I got the run around, All they told me was it could be a software,hardware, or even the motherboard problem.Does anyone have any answers as to why this is happening? I also contacted a computer repair place and I was told that this model of laptop is on a defect list.

This is the 2nd hp I've owned that has taken a HUGE CRAP!!!!!!! only difference is the other lasted slightly longer,

they also said should consider getting together w/ a class action lawsuit against HP since they don't want to hold up to their end of a warranty. At this rate I will never purchase another hp computer again, because they can't even give descent customer service support but yet they want us to continue purchasing their products. 


Thamk you

Thank you for the help on trying to solve the problem w/ my screen not wanting to come on after powering up,Turns out my computer does fall in the affected chipset.Again I'd like to say thank you.
