Broken screen or Graphics card?

Last Modified: 2013-11-08
Hi all

Client called me up with an issue, and Im not sure if its the screen that is broken or the graphics card.

Laptop is a HP Pavilion DV6 (Out of Warranty).

Apparently was working on it, shut the lid for a break, came back nd the screen is completely white.

External monitor connected via D-Sub works, however HDMI seems to be dead also.

I hear the DV6 Graphics are embedded onto the motherboard, so I want to be fairy certain which it is before looking for fixes.
