Compaq Presario 2199us Laptop No Video

By dinkey ·
I've got a Compaq Presario Laptop 2199us I've just changed the motherboard in it. Once I've gotten the laptop back together I'm not getting video. After messing with for a few minutes (reseating memory, hdd, battery) I was able to get the HP Logo on the screen and in to the BIOS. Then it seemed to lockup on me so I shut it down and now i'm not getting an video what so ever Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Did you back up the drive before

you changed the MB?

Is the new MB exactly the same MB as the old one.

If not the hard drive cannot load as it doesn't have the new drivers?

I would take the Laptop apart again and check the video connections, if the connection was loose you could be getting this symptom. You dont have video one minute, then you twist and turn the laptop you get video... when you powered down the PC when you pushed the power button that part could flexed and disturbed the connection... hence no video... again... just a thought though...
