I have an HP LapTop, 6.0GB RAM, OS Win 10. My problem is that this computer would not turn over and boot up. All I show is the ON light and a blank screen.

First thing to do is try an external monitor on it and tell us what happens. That will help prove whether you have a screen fault or not.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Derek, I think you helped me in the past. So, how do I try an external monitor on the
computer (sorry just really an amateur on this stuff)

I don't exactly follow laptop hardware and you didn't post a model, but I'm pretty sure a lot of consumer HP laptops have HDMI ports on them. Just grab a cable from the back of your TV and plug it in.

I got a cable from the TV upstair and plug one end to HMDI2 and the other end to the HP 15 TS Notebook PC. Once done, I press the fn and F3 at the same time up to F11 but nothng happened, I left the cabe for the TV signal and just connected another cable to another HDM2 from the TV and the other end to the computer. It did not show anything. The TV signal on HDMI showed the signal and the TV did not change after I press F3 or F4. F5 etc.

What is my next step?

Could this be associated with an upgrade to windows 10 or windows 10 updates? I seem to recall a few reports of dead computers afterwards. You might try temporarily disconnecting the hard drive and then starting it up to see if the HP logo or posting information appears.

Otherwise you probably have a hardware problem inside the laptop.

Hi DAVEINCAPS, Thanks again. I recall you gave me a hand before when I had a computer problem. So, your'e right - I had an upgrade to windows 10 and some updates along the way. Now, how do i temporarily disconnect the hard drive? If I put my Restore disk in the DVD drive and reboot it, would it take the Restore Disk? I should see the HP logo if using a Restore Disk works, right?

I'm not sure about that particular model but usually there will be a panel on the bottom of the laptop you remove to expose the drive.

My reason for mentioning disconnecting it was that if the problem was windows then maybe it was starting to boot into windows before the HP logo appeared on the screen thereby making you think the problem was elsewhere. I don't know if that's likely but it's possible.

But instead of disconnecting the drive it may be easier to slow it down by hitting the 'pause' key or the bios setup or boot order keys (if you know what they are without seeing the prompts on the screen) giving the screen a little more time to display.

Anyway, from what I can tell, windows 10 update problems are rare but sometimes happen. As I mentioned, if that's not it then some internal hardware problem is likely since you've already tried an external monitor.

Oh and yeah, it should boot from the restore disk if the DVD drive is first in the boot order and the problem isn't hardware related.

Thanks DAVEINCAPS. I will reboot with the Windows disk and hope the sequence starts
with the outside disks.

My last resort will be to call HP techs and let them work to solve my problem. As you know
they can control my computer and work on it.

Anyway, thanks to all for your efforts.

I called HP Technical for help and he updated the Bios - Hold the Window 10 Key botton
and the B key and the On botton at the same time. After 5 secs, I released all the bottons and I got the the panel screen to display the Bios. The tech person controlled the screen after he
asked me to log in to their control app. Just FYI.

Good to hear its fixed. I'm thinking the screen might not have been entirely blank originally but probably showed something about BIOS access.
