SO My laptop FINALLY came in, and I got to play around with it. The backlight comes on, HDD light flickers for a second, but thats about it. No image and no BIOS beep. So I think the GPU has fried. And yea, that's what I was afraid of. The GPU on the system board itself. But it's all good. Just Ordered a replacement System Board for the DV2500. Also bought a replacement display inverter JUST in case. I'll keep everyone inform.
Can you please let me know from where did you order the replacement system board? Please share the link if you have. I have got exaclty the same problem with my Hp 2500t
