I have a HP compaq 435 laptop: 2 gb ram : 350 HD : AMD GPU

My problem is, it has no display but everything else is running. The fan, HD, motherboard lights, keyboard lights, I can even hear the disc drive click when I turned it on. But no display whatsoever, no flash no nada, just a blank screen.

Any suggestions and help are well appreciated!

Thanks

Tried external monitor, tried removing and reinstalling the ram, and also tried a different working ram.

That's what I think too. So I've search the net for not so permanent and not costly solution. That is to reflow my GPU myself.

What do you think?

I think it overheated cause there is no fan-heat sink connection to my GPU. Just a metal over the GPU to help it cool. :/

No.. The metal over the GPU is not connected at all. It is only just there against the lower part of the case.

Yeah I know. When I saw it after I disassembled my laptop, I was like, is this a joke of a heat sink? lol

Well anyway, thanks for the suggestion.

Cheers!

Hey jarotech,

I sent it to the technicians. My reflow didn't work so I'm guessing motherboard problem. Just out of curiosity, is there any fix if the motherboard is problem.

Thanks mate!
