    ok so when i plug my laptop into the AC adaptor and push the power button every thing comes on except i get no video. i have to push the power button for five+ seconds for it to shut off again so that means that the cpu didnt come on. but the thing is some times it does come on and the laptop works perfectly fine. whats the problem here? its a HP Pavilion zd7000 heres the specs:
    CPU: Pentium 4 2.8ghz
    Video: Geforce GO fx5700 64mb
    RAM: 2gb DDR400
    HDD: hitachi 20gb
    so please help me
    thanks

    On my MSI-1057 notebook computer, pressing the "FN" and "F2" keys sends the video to the notebook's screen or to a monitor that's plugged into the notebook or both. Look for similar keys on your notebook.

    Not sure because you say it works sometimes. I had a Toshiba that I actually fried the motherboard, so essentially all that worked as the little light for my computer. I would push the power button, nothing came up, so I held the power button to turn it back off. I could do that 30 times with nothing. But if you get it to work once in awhile, not sure that it is fried.
