Try connecting to and external monitor or TV there will be a cople of keys to press to switch usually Fn+ F5 (look for a blue symbol of sceren).

That will tell us if its the screen or asscoiaated leds of if its the grahics card that has failed.

Hi', That makes no difference, Nothing on either screens.

Connected to an external monitor or TV set to PC input, tap F4 once. Down arrow once, then press the enter key. This is for the 'Duplicate' setting. Anything showing now?

Hello Rdave, Still nothing but I can't hear the hard disk booting up either. I might have been mistaken before.

Thanks, I did wonder about the overheating since I had to clean it out twice but not once did the machine warn me about overheating. Thanks a lot HP, last time I buy one of their machines.

Thanks everyone, I have now given up with it, nothing seems to work and I am sick of wasting time on it. Thanks for all the advice anyway. John
