    Hi. In late June 2007 I purchased an HP dv9535nr laptop. The LCD display is no longer working. I can still hear the startup Sounds and there is still a backlight. I connected it to an external monitor and it still didn't work. The Led lights (volume, quickplay,indicators, dedicated media controls) still work and are not flashing. The computer is almost a year out of warranty but HP offered to replace it for around $300. Does anyone know what is acctually wrong with the machine and if you do, do you know any trouble shooting methods or methods cheaper than HP's solution. I realize its probably the GPU and the best method to fix would be to ship it in, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
    Specs:
    1.5 GHz Intel Centrino Duo processor T5250 w/ 2MB L2 Cache
    2 GB DDR2 System Memory
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS w/ 256 MB dedicated
    Windows Vista Premium w/ SP1
