Hi @nemesiscameron ,

Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop's HDMI port.

Even a TV can be used as an external monitor as long as it has HDMI inputs and you have the appropriate cable to connect the two together.

Remember to press the display hotkey (next to the screen brightness key) t change the display from laptop screen to external to both.

Are you sure that it booted into the OS? Did you hear the Windows greeting chime after startup?

Hi @nemesiscameron ,

I don’t know Linux but if you don’t get a display when going into BIOS either (you said you tried pressing the Novo button to start the laptop) then there must be a motherboard problem.

How old is the laptop? Looking at the support page for the laptop, it seems a recently released model.

If it is under 12 months get it fixed under the manufacturer’s warranty

The laptop is only four months old and I tried using the warranty but they said it’s only applicable in he states..I live in Kenya and I imported it from Newegg.com cause of the price difference.. I’ll just have to pay to get it fixed
