I have an HP Pavilion dv4 Laptop where the screen suddenly went blank. I connected an external monitor and both screens had video. I disconnected the external monitor and the laptop lcd stayed on until I rebooted. The I was back to a blank screen again. Sometime it will work with the external monitor and sometimes is won't but when it does both the external and the lcd will work. I have checked the RAM and it is good. When I have had the system running I checked the power settings and they are normal. Any suggestions as to what might be failing on this laptop?

Thank you!

Sounds like a potential motherboard issue. is the device still under warranty? is it similar to this?

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
