Laptop Screen Problem

I left my laptop turned on this evening for a few hours. When I came back to it, I couldnt get the screen to come back on. This often happened before, and I would have to turn it off by holding down the on/off button, and it worked ok when turned on again.

But tonight, when the laptop came back on, the screen was black, and there was a beep sound. I tried the same thing again, and the same result occurred. Finally I turned it off but this time left it for 10 mins and closed down the lid. When i turned it on this time it worked ok.

I wonder is something going wrong? Its only 6 months old.

Hi, sounds like a over-heating problem - though as it is only 6 months old it should have no such problem. I would advise you to return it from where you bought it, explain what is happening and ask for it to be properly sorted, or replaced.

Well i rang HP support and also took it back to the shop. They think, from the beeps, it's a VGA problem, so it's gone back!
