Hello guys,

Yesterday everything was fine, they I woke up
Turned it on

Nothing came up in laptop display or monitor I plugged in

But odd part is it loads into windows just fine since I heard the sound of start up of windows.

After ages tires, still remained the same, I'm not sure if graphic card really died? Or the exist system of delivering display died? So I don't waste buying another graphic card to replace this 460m?

look like everything is fine, seem like a cable connector or the cable went little bad on the top right of motherboard, so after unplug that small connector and put it back it, it works fine!

looks like notebook is dependent on LCD screen before external monitor....

Does that mean you can't plug in an external monitor when the LCD isn't working? Interesting, as I'm thinking of trying a mod which would disconnect the LCD.

I have TeamViewer installed on my laptop btw, which should be handy in your case if you encounter that issue again - even if the display doesn't work, you should still be able to log in over LAN.
