Any help would be appreciated as im goin to get my butt whipped otherwise. Thanks in advance

what you mean by no HP logo, you mean there's no POST or what? try to check your HDD there could be some problem as you said you drop your laptop


it was working fine until i took the lcd apart - was very very wet inside the screen... when i say hp logo when it initially boots up the hp logo is displayed on the screen tyhen it needs worked based password to unlock comp to get to windows boot up screen theres none of that. have attached external monitor it all works fine on that


yeah sounds as if the screen despite being dried out might still be having problems. I would suggest trying to locate either a cheap second hand laptop of the same model that is not working and swap out the screens and see if this fixes the problem. When you turn it on do you get any other signs that the laptop might have turn on eg lights on the rest of the computer hard drives starting up etc. I would also suggest checking the cables that connect the monitor to the rest of the computer and make sure they are all in properly.


hi thanx - yeah it all starts up fine - backlight comes on and hard drives etc boot up. will recheck cables - think im gonna have to own up!! fingers crossed the tellin off aint too bad!


yes the trouble with laptops is that although they are alot more portable and easy to use with that it also creates a host of new things that can happen to them. Good luck
