HP HDX 16 Laptop Monitoring going black

Post by smartbro949 on Sun May 01, 2011 10:02 pm

Hi,

I have an HP HDX 16 Laptop which is about a year and 9 months old. Recently, I turned on my computer, and the monitor screen goes black as if it has turned off. The computer itself turns on, but the monitor only works for a few seconds to about 10 minutes. I am currently using an external monitor connected by a VGA cord. Apparently, when I close the lid and then open the lid to the laptop, the screen will appear. But after a short while, it will go black on me and shut off like it would be on sleep mode, but the computer is still running. As of now, I am using this laptop as a desktop with an external monitor. Can you guys please help me resolve this issue as it is a hardware or software problem, I do not know.

Thanks

Hi, it is hardware problem. It suppose that cable which connect your Laptop hardware with Display are damaged or broken. You can easy repair that, buy a new one, or just visit PC Service and they should help you. I don't think your Display is dead, it's just cable issue.

I have got the same problem! Did you find a solution? And if it was the cable from monitor to board, where did you buy it? Smile
