HP Recommended
hp stream 13

i got a laptop with a broken screen ... it seemed to run fine except it wont show up on my t.v ... i tired the windows button + P but at the time the screen was turning on and then off immediately .. so i found on another forum how to get to the first menue .. but i still cant get it on the t.v and i cant see the screen to do a reset or anything .. is there anything i can do to make this work short of buying a new screen which is almost as much as the laptops worth i appreciate any help

No.   If you can't get to the Esc or F11 menu to restore the Stream it is pretty much hosed. 

 

Are you using an HDMI cable to connect to a TV? 

 

You would actually a greater chance of success connecting to an external Display instead of an HDTV.

The reason for the flicker is the output resolution of the HP Stream.

 

As I suggested, connect it  with an HDMI cable to an LCD desktop PC display.

 

If it displays normally, that bit of troubleshooting lets you know the issue is only the display. 

 

It still won't be worth replacing the Stream's display unless you can find one dirt cheap on eBay and install it yourself.

i got it to stop turning on and off by getting to the esc menu ... i need to know what to do from there .. like step by step buttons to press without being able to see ... it still wont come up on my monitor when i use my hdmi to digital input cord with my monitor .. i think i need to reformat it

 

i have another hp laptop i could try to mirrow the process myself but i think they are different windows versions

HDMI is already digital. What is an HDMI to digital input cord?   It must be some kind of gender changing cable.  What brand  of display are you using?

 

 

Sorry, I can't provide directions on doing a recovery blind. That is a new one on me.   Reformat what?  Did you mean to say recover or reset?
