hey guys.. a friend of mine has a problem with her compaq presario v3000.. power on, there's no display at all. the blue hardware lights turn on, and the CD drive opens, and im pretty sure its working inside, but no display.. wat do i do? i used a VGA cable to connect it to my TV, but the TV, which starts with that blue screen (no signal) turns off (black screen) when i connect the cable. i currently have no idea wat to do.. im assuming its a problem with the video card. but is there anything else i can try before sending it to a repair shop to have it done? thanks!
