Diagnosing Display Problem with HP Mini 110-11
Posted on 2011-09-05
I have an HP Mini Netwbook that was working fine until it fell of the 14-inch coffee table.
Now it seems to boot up (the disk spins, the WiFi LED goes amber then blue, etc),
but the display just shows a bunch of thin vertical colored lines.
There is an aux VGA connector, but that doesn't seem to be showing signs of life either.
Do I have to turn that on, or should it be alive by default?
Any experience with this. The display is not cracked. The info I an seeing on line suggests
that it could be the screen connector. But that sounds almost too good to be true.
I am willing to buy a new display if I have to, but I'd rather not buy the display and then find
out that the problem is with the video card (if there is one) or the mother board.
I have found lots of links, and I can find more, I am really looking for first-hand experience.
Thanks a lot.
