There's absolutely no reason to do a factory restore. Windows has nothing to do with the HP splash screen. Your problem is hardware related, not software related.

The link you have already been given in response 1 has instructions for the procedure to connect an external display.

In any event the problem is likely to be failed backlight or inverter and you will need to have it repaired by a technician

The problem is hardware related. It is down to a manufacturing fault with the geforce 8400 and 8600 series of cards from nvidia, both desktop and laptop.

The problem also affects the dv2000 and dv9000 series laptops. the problem starts to appear roughly 3-4 years into its life, when the solder on the card starts to become defective due to heat. If you want a temp fix, applying a heat gun to the graphics card (no more than 15 secs, making sure the heat is applied directly only to the chip) would solve the problem for a short space of time. A more permanent solution would be for you to have someone do a complete reball of the chip and reapply fresh solder.

I hope this helps.

I recentaly came to know that this is Nvidea chip issue.
But I heard that just reballing or replacement will not work. What to do in such case??????
