    Hey all,

    I recently upgraded the hard drive to an SSD, once this was done I no longer have a screen on boot, it's just black. When I reinstall the old hard drive, everything works as it should. I connected the computer to an external monitor via the HDMI port and was able to install windows on the new SSD hard drive.. am I missing something here? is the laptop married to the drive?
