Black screen on recovery menu

Hi everyone, joined the forum to ask this question. I recently got a hold of an hp chromebook 11 g6 ee that was decommissioned by a school. However, when booting into the recovery menu, the screen goes completely black with no backlight. It is still in the recovery menu in the background, because I got developer mode enabled by fumbling around in the dark. I can’t really install other oses though because I can’t access the menu. If anyone knows anything about this please let me know.
