This might be a bit long winded but I want to explain exactly what happened.

I have an HP Envy with touchscreen display. I had some issues with my keyboard so I replaced it but in doing so, I broke the connection on the motherboard for the display. I got a new motherboard and installed it but I still don't have a display. The touchscreen part of it works, and the computer does boot up because I'm using an external monitor. But I don't have anything on my laptop screen. I've tried resetting cmos by unplugging the battery, and I reset it by taking the battery out and pressing the power button to drain it and resetting it that way but nothing has worked. Any suggestions?

I didn't do anything to the ribbon for the display, I broke the plastic that holds the ribbon onto the motherboard. and in trying to see if I could fix it, the connection to the motherboard came off and I don't have a solder so I just ordered another motherboard.

It didn't, that's why I posted this. The touchscreen part works but the screen is blank. I'm only able to work with an external monitor.

Were you able to find anything. I posted the model as soon as I could. My husband is a disabled vet and I am gone a lot taking him to doctors appts. Any help would be appreciated.
