HP G71-340US LAPTOP has no video
Posted on 2014-08-06
I have an "HP G71-340US" LAPTOP that displays no video
- when I power on the laptop I can see a faint image in the background. Basically I can see the images but without the background light.
- If I attach a monitor to the laptop, it displays perfectly fine on the monitor. So that tells me that there's nothing wrong with the video controller
My question is
- do I have a bad screen, or the bulb is bad inside the screen or do I need a new inverter?
- I can purchase a new screen for around $75-$85 online. But I'd hate to do that if its not the screen. I assume most people don't replace bulb, they just purchase the entire screen which contains the bulb.
I guess the answer I'm looking for is to determine what the most common fix for this issue and what most likely needs to be replaced
any help would be appreciated
