I’m such a huge dork.
I won’t bore you with how or why, but I inadvertently disabled my graphics card and the obvious outcome was my monitor went black because there’s no input and now I can’t see a damn thing. I’m relatively computer savvy, but without being able to see anything, I can’t figure out how to get the driver back working and the display back.
-Starting in safe mode doesn’t help because I still can’t se anything
-Tried resetting the BIOS by removing the battery; no change
-Can’t figure out how to have it start in VGA mode or know if that would even help?
At this point, I’d be happy to upgrade and install a new graphics card, but I don’t even know if that’d fix it.
