Screen won’t turn on

HP PAVILION GAMING LAPTOP

Hey everyone I just bought a brand new hp pavilion gaming laptop the other day. Ever since I bought it the computer would turn on and the screen would not. However if you plug in a hdmi cable it displays on tv. I’ve tried removing ram and reinserted it I’ve downloaded latest update for graphics card and still no screen. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it thanks

Welcome to HP Forums!

I have a few steps to help you out:

 

Here's what you need to do, to identify the issue and resolve it accordingly:

  • If not done already, check if it works fine on the BIOS screen to identify if it's either a hardware or a software issue:
    • If it works fine on the BIOS (Accessed while tapping F10 during a restart) it's a software issue & I suggest creating a new user account to check if that works better, for starters)
    • However, if it doesn't work within the BIOS either, I'm afraid it's a hardware malfunction.

While you respond to that, I have a few more steps that should help: 

Perform a power reset (no data loss) using these steps: Click here, proceed to next step if this works

Attempt to run a test from the HP hardware diagnostic tool, using this link: Click here for details.

 

If the issue appears on the diagnostics, it could again, determine a hardware failure,

If they don't appear on bios & the hardware tests passed: please update the BIOS & Chip-set drivers from the HP website using this link: Click here

 

if the issue persists, reinstall windows using the recovery partition or the recovery media to fix the issue,
use this link for details on performing the recovery: Click here

 

I hope that helps.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.
