Specs: Windows XP, 512
HP, Compaq nx7220, bought 4.5 yrs back, running win xp service pack 3.
Suddenly my desktop became obscure, almost black, though I can see the cursor and icons with difficulty. Tried usual trobleshooting options like, changing desktop theme, system restore, known good configuration etc. but nothing worked.
Please help.

Laptop no video (or video problems), and battery, AC adapter, power jack T shooting.

See response 1:

DO NOT plug in or unplug a monitor's video cable into / from a video port while the computer is running. Doing so can damage the monitor's circuits and/or the video adapter's circuits.

Some laptops will display on an external monitor without you having to do anything.

If you get no video on an external monitor, some laptops have a key combo that you must press to toggle the display to external video only / built in display video only / sometimes both - see the Owner's or User's manual for the model.
