Hello, I have a black screen on my hp laptop, read your post about troubleshooting...and find where you said to try to power up holding down the keyboard. It worked...I have a screen now and my computer came up. Now....what is a "video chip" so I know what to try to order? (Yes....I am a novice.) :-)

Sorry, most laptops do no make it possible to replace the video chip. I fact, most laptops have the video chip integrated into the CPU.

Good Luck

Try this

1. Remove the battery and cable.

2. Press and hold the power button for 58 seconds.

3. Replug and start.

Good luck
