    Ok, recently, I broke the hinge of the laptop's lcd. I replace the hinge, there was a cable that was broken, I realize that cable was not related to the lcd since it was connect to the wireless network chip.
    I made sure all the lcd cable are plug in the laptop motherboard.
    On the back of the lcd, there was white tape and it said do not touch, I accidentally touch this by mistake. I don't know if this is really serious.

    Now, the laptop does not have any picture, but the light is on, the lcd has a grayish color, its like its about to load, but no image comes up.
    This issue occurred during the hinge breaking.

    Any ideas?
    I hope I didn't break the lcd.
    Model is dv2037us.
    The laptop is fine if I hook it up to a monitor via vga port.

    i have check that cable, its plug in and none is broken, I will recheck when I get home.

    The lcd light up, there's a grayish color on the lcd monitor. I guess its a dark gray. Its on, but there's no image.

    Can you boot to BIOS? Can you see the BIOS? if not, then let me know if your laptop is in warranty or not because you will get a free replacement of your laptop.

    Try to open the lcd and check , or loose connectors .Am I had the same problem and was only to those connectors. Do not forget to check if the light source is intact. In the worst house you can splice a cold from a socket (or on the motherboard or from the monitor) Sorry for my ENGLISH

    ...even if he opened the laptop and attempted to fix it on his own? If he was in warranty, wouldn't that void it out?
