  1. My Friend has a HP Pavilion DV2000 Laptop. His display isn't work. Suddenly display gone. But I thought it could be Display problem not a VGA. So, i tried to connect an external monitor and used Shortcut keys to change the display. I pressed fu + F1 or Fu + F2 or Fu + F3 or Fu + F4 up-to F12. But no result.
    I couldn't check whether it's a Display or VGA card problem. IS there any other way to check it. in addition to these is there any other combination keys to Change the display to an external monitor. I'm unable to check whether i get login or not. if I can login then i can use Windows Key + P. Then i can select mode. But I'm Unable to anything here. Please help me to find the problem and i have to take it to repairing shop.
    Thanks in Advanced

    It should be the Fn + the key that shows a monitor symbol. If it still doesn't display, the motherboard video processor has failed, and not the LCD Panel

    Thnx. I tried every key. I also thought that the problem is VGA Card.

    It's not really a "VGA Card" it is a video processor chip like a CPU. I have an HP dv9500 right now with a similar problem. A new motherboard may be needed

    A lot of people call on-board graphics a "video card". I'll get a motherboard from EBay for around $170 for this HP dv9000 laptop. The customer is happy :)

    Where are you located in this World?
    The actual model number of the motherboard is on a label that can sometimes be read from the memory compatment
