The computer was stuck on the HP screen and I ran a test and the hard drive failed. I bought a new hard drive and was about to start recovery but decided to power off and reboot before starting the process. I now have a blank display. The lights are all okay, fan is running and no beeps for errors.
Does anyone have any idea how to get the display to start working? I tried all types of keystrokes but nothing seems to work.
Going to give it one more try before I send this computer to the junk yard.

Hi there @ripme,
Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that you have replaced a failing hard drive and have not installed a boot image yet, and the computer starts with a blank display. I am happy to help with this.
I would suggest trying to install your recovery image if possible. HP PCs - Performing an HP System Recovery (Windows 10)
If you cannot get that to start, then try following this document: HP Desktop PCs - Computer Does Not Start (Windows 10,8)
Please let me know whether that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.
