My laptop screen died and the display cable is screwed. I have parts ordered but need my computer now.
I have an HDMI monitor connected.
The issue is that with no internal display attached, the laptop turns on for a few seconds, then turns off.
Is there a way to get this working on the external monitor until my new parts arrive?
Laptop is a Dell inspiron 17 7567 gaming rig.
System Configuration: Android / Chrome 70.0.3538.110
OK, well, lets do this....with all EQ off, plug in all cables and turn on the external monitor. Make certain monitor is set to HDMI input.
Boot up laptop, pressing (not holding) F2 repeatedly until it beeps. Did you get a display, or did it shut down? If it shut down, then post back and we will go to next step. Are you good with opening up the machine? Did you already do that? If so, take out all of the ram, and boot. Does it still shut down?
