HP Pavilion Laptop - black screen

Have an HP Pavilion Laptop that is about 5-6 years old. When I turned it on this morning the screen remained black. Power getting to the laptop. Turned power off to see if that would re-set but hasn't worked. Any ideas?

Tried that but that wouldn't come up either. Have done this in the past to watch TV through computer but no go this time.

Unplug, remove battery, hold power button down for 30 seconds, reassemble and try.

Thanks for suggestion but hasn't worked. Maybe have to take it to computer repair place.

Common Issue in HP Laptops. It's got a dead Video chip. it will cost you between $180 to $250 to fix.

Keep the HDD as a spare. Sell the power adapter, battery, and RAM. Throw the laptop in the rubbish. Look for a quality replacement for about $260.
Check TM, something like an HP EliteBook 8440p i5 M540 2.53GHz would be good.
