Hello, and thank you in advance for helping me with my unique problem. I was given a HP Pavilion Protect Smart laptop with a broken screen and no hard drive (a co-worker of mine wanted the hard drive out of the laptop to salvage the data from). I have another hard drive from an older laptop that was running windows 7 that I am currently trying to get to work with the laptop I was given. The current problem I am having is that I can't get the laptop to output to my monitor via an hdmi cable, so I am unable to do the necessary steps within the bios to get the windows 7 copy on the hard drive to work with the hardware of the HP Pavilion I am trying to revive. If you are wondering why I am trying to get a random hard drive to work with a laptop with a broken screen, I had the idea to use it to host a minecraft server on my college campus :)

P.s. the exact model number is 15-b142dx
