well, it ran another year or so and the video output just stopped.
nothing out the back port, nothing on the screen, although i can tell that the backlight is still working.
called hp's 800# for another go-around and was informed that "it's more than five years old, no repair parts are available from hp, and all we can say is, go buy a new laptop."
well, we're calibrated now: product lifetime is five years, then toss into the recycling bins.
anybody got a lead on a video board for one of these puppies?
cheers, all, and thanks for your help!
