Display problem on HP 500 notebook

Hy everyone!

I own an HP500notebook in the following configuration:

Intel Pentium M 730 1,6GHz

Intel 915GME Chipset with integrated graphics

1024Mb DDR2

100Gb Samsung HM100JC HDD


1280x800 LG/Philips (LPL8D00 - if it helps)

The problem is that when I start de instalation (of 10.4.7 JaS OS), when booting I hava image on the notebooks LCD - only when it boot-up. After that I'm stuck with the blue backgroun and nothing else, not even the mouse's cursor on the screen; seems dead.

I thought it might be the display's resolution, so, I've conected an CRT monitor on the VGA port and pushed the LCD-off buton (the one that is pushed by the display when it'sclosed). Theh, I've got image on the CRT. After the boot ended, same problem. It looked like dead. Only that i released the LCD button and, surprise, there i've seen the window asking me for language selection while on the CRT was the blue image that i've seen on the LCD. OK, I installed macOS and observed that I needed to do the same trick with the CRT to get image 

n the LCD. The resolution on LCD is OK, 1280x800.

What can I do about this? I used macOS X 10.4.5 on a Toshiba Satellite A80 (about the same configuation and worked great).

Thanks for any help and sorry for my english!
