So i turned on my DV4 1155SE & nothing came up on the screen(black screen only)..tried using a flashlight etc..cant see a single thing on the screen.I cant seem to get the HDMI or VGA ports to give a picture on a seperate monitor(never tried before so might be doing it wrong).I have no flashing LED'S indicating harware failure etc..This model has the AMD cpu,i read its common for the Motherboard to fail so i paid for it to be replaced.after repair display worked for 5 minutes,then went to black screen again,now at times when first powering on screen flickers for a second but thats bout it! No problems leading up to this,I am kinda commited to repairing it now since i paid $200 for a mobo & $100 install 😞 Any Ideas? Could the display be my problem?

Well,looks i was wrong,it appears the the caps light/num lock blinks in a 4 blink code,basically stating there is a video controller error,(I thought those lights were related to the wireless 😞 ...) What is the video controller?

Its the video card that has gone bad. CLick here to verify. Who fixed the laptop? Return it back asap for a another repair which should be for free now. HP has 90 days repair warranty.

Yeah i figured,seems to common with this model 😞 I am taking it back to the local shop where i had the repair performed,they must not have ran it for very long cause it failed quick.I am assuming the video controller is part of the Motherboard & they will replace that "again"?
