HP/Compaq :: HP G60 Turns On-Black Screen


I have an HP G60-247cl Laptop that will turn on, and the fan is running. However, the screen is blank and there seems to be no response from the keyboard or mouse, and an external monitor will not work either.

If it is the switch, where is it located, and how much trouble is it to get to?

Sony :: VAIO SZ Screen Suddenly Turns Black
i have a problem with my 2 year old vaio sz. Since some weeks, screen turns black in irrregular intervals. The system is still available, but i can't see anything on the screen. The only solution is to push the power button an switch to standby mode. Afer pushing the power button again, the system comes up again and the screen turns on! The problem only occured in battery mode.

I tried nearly everything to fix the problem. I reinstalled Windows XP, tried different power management settings... nothing worked.

Sony :: Vaio- If My Laptop Turns On, It Either Freezes, BSODs, Or Black Screens
If my laptop turns on, it either freezes, BSODs, or black screens (could be anywhere from the windows loading logo to doing some work on word, etc.)

And if it doesnt turn on, well it does; the hdd light goes on (for a second), same with the battery light (the battery light is fine though), but the screen is black; i can hear hdd activity though and if i throw a cd in there, it spins properly and whatnot, but it just doesnt do anything past the blank screen.

An external monitor doesnt work, and reformatting seemed to have helped abit, but then it just got worse 2 days ago; I can't get past the black screen after I turn it on.

I'm 99% sure its a hardware problem, and I'd be willing to replace whatever it is if I knew what it was, but I dont know if it's the hdd, or the ram, or the video card, etc.

I've also taken the laptop apart; so reseating the ram and hdd doesnt work.

HP/Compaq :: Black Screen On G6000
my housemate has a HP G6000...When she turns it on the laptop starts (ie. CPU/HDD and optical disk drive all start up fine and sound normal) but the screen remains completely black, no flicker whatsoever...I opened up the laptop and moved the ram modules around as a suggestion on old posts i found..It did no good...Also i could see the GPU and saw no evidence of it being burntout at all..

If i connect it to an external monitor and it worked would that rule out a GPU failure?

And would that mean a connection is loose somewhere?

HP/Compaq :: Envy 15 Black Screen
I've spent a while now reading through the forums for both the 1st and 2nd gen 15" Envys. My first gen Envy, purchased 3 weeks ago suffered the dreaded black screen issue, which was identified by turning the machine on and leaving it for a while - could be 10 minutes, could be hours and the screen would go black, system would lock up and require a hard reboot. Oddly enough the hard drive packed up after a couple of weeks use. I replaced the drive myself with a new western digital Scorpio, but the symptoms still occurred.

Having bought the unit from a retailer, I took it back and had the last remaining gen 1, which was their display unit (i prefer the lower res screen for gaming-better performance at native res). To date I have not had a single black screen. The drivers and software are exactly the same, which kind of ruined my idea that it may be drivers causing the issue, so I'm very intrigued as to what may be causing the issue.

I'd like to keep this thread solely to covering this issue as it seems to be affecting users of both first and 2nd gen units, so feel free to post your experiences of this exact problem and any remedies you may have discovered, as it took me ages to find like minded users in the massive general Envy threads! Maybe we can get enough information to help the Hp techs, as I really think this unit is otherwise a very good performer!

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Screen Black
what to do with this laptop. When first turned on the blue lights come on, there is a dim hue to the screen and then black while the puter boots up. Through the network I can access the files but cannot see them on the dv6000 screen. I attached an old external screen and rebooted with the Windows sign-in showing for about 5 secs and then black. Took out the battery, held down power button for 60 secs and then plugged in power and started the puter. Still black screen.

Does it sound like an inverter or motherboard? Should I call it day with this and buy a cheap laptop. I mostly transcribe files. No gaming.

HP/Compaq :: HP 8530w Black Screen At StartupResolved
On regular bases I get a black screen during startup like the HP 8530w didn't finish it's BIOS check to boot into the OS, it will then just hang there until I shut it down and reboot. I believe that this issue is also preventing the comp from coming out of sleep mode as well because I get the same issue at random when the comp has entered sleep mode.

I've got the latest BIOS since Sept. but to no avail, I've tried disabling everything in the BIOS that I'm not using and that didn't change anything either.

HP/Compaq :: Zd800 Series Black Screen
Whenever I play a videogame (WoW mostly) or run a directx 3d diagnostic the computer freezes up and I get either of two results: one is a "no signal" message from my monitor (lcd screen that I route my screen on, the laptop screen is disabled) or it recovers a few seconds later with a VPU error. it recovers only about 5% of the time, almost always it's the no signal.

I tried installing new drivers, downloading all possible updates, new directx and no luck.
this does not happen every time by the way, and not always when i start the game. sometimes i get no error for hours, sometimes i get one as soon as the game starts.
the only solution that i can come up with at the moment is a hard reset of the system.

I've talked to HP online professional chat service and they told me something completely... useless... for the lack of the better term. something about some games not being compatible with some operating systems...and yeah, i can do everything else.. surf the web, play movies, leave the pc on for hours at a time and no errors, doesn't matter if it's just been started up after 24 hours of rest or if it's hot after 3 hours of a movie, the errors are always there. it's a zd8000 series laptop. ATI Radeon Mobility X600 card, 1 gig ram. about 60% of the hard drive is empty. also I've played the same game for years on it now with no problems.

HP/Compaq :: Presario Screen Black/power LED On
The screen on my wife's presario notebook suddenly went black on sunday. She was surfing on the net when that happened. The screen wasn't completely black, it was kinda gray-ish like the LCD light was still on. The power LED was also still on. She turned the notebook off and back on and the screen stayed pitch black. The power LED comes on, the fan is running and also the DVD drive starts running but neither do I see a picture nor does the HDD LED flicker.

I tried different things like unhooking the power, uninstalling the battery but nothing helped. However after a couple of restarts I was able to make it show the 'Compaq' logo twice. Each time the HDD LED flickered a couple of times and then the screen was gray again.

On the Compaq website they suggest to re-set the RAM module(s). Does that sound like a possible solution to anybody? My wife is going to check if the notebook is still under warranty (She bought it in August last year) before I try to mess with the RAM.

HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Screen Goes Black When Tilted And Cold
screens that flickered every time they moved their monitor. My issue is very weird. When I first turn my computer on or wake it up the screen seems like it takes forever to come on. If you wiggle the monitor it will pop up and then go out again until you find the right spot. Now at this point I would think it is a pinched cable but as the computer warms up the problem completely goes away. I can move the monitor all around and have no problems whatsoever. This is something I can deal with but would like to know what the problem is. It is a DV9000 series laptop that is about 2 years old w/ windows 7. I just ordered a new battery for it because "it" told me I needed a new one. Wondering if it is a power issue or what.

Acer :: 8920G - Randomly Turns Off/has A Blue Screen
for the past 3 days my Acer 8920G has been acting..very strange. It randomly turns off/has a blue screen, then I can't use it for 6-10 hours before it works again, but then only for 30 min then repeats. I've checked the temperatures for the HDD/CPU/GPU on the time I was on, and the HDD was 58C, CPU and GPU were around 50C (With FF3.5, iTunes, MSN and Vuze running). I've taken off the back panel and removed the dust but that didn't do anything at all. This morning I turned it on after leaving it upside down (back panel on) to vent all the air (if I left it open more dust would've gone in) and it wouldn't even hit the desktop. Kept crashing when it hits the desktop (that's basically what happens when I try and turn it on after it has a blue screen or turns off). So I opened the back panel and let my hand hover over the components - no heat what so evr radiated from it, which means it can't have overheated...right? Now I can only run it with the back panel off, which I'm doing now in a well ventilated area.

Sony :: VGN-Z540 Screen Backlight Turns Off
Problem with my 2 week old sony vgn-z540 laptop.

Heres the problem:

When I try to use the brightness level in between LOW and HIGH, my LCD backlight would go off, and the screen would be dark and almost not visible at all. There are also vertical bars at random spots, stretching from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. I can only use it with either LOW setting or HIGH setting, nothing in between.

This problem just started on its own. I have not installed anything such as drivers or programs. No updates(was updated after the problem occured to try to fix it).

I love this laptop to death and has been the best laptop in the past 15 years. I would hate to see it go so I need this fixed.

I will update later with pictures when it gets dark here b/c the pictures now are not showing up with the bars.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV6120US - Won't Start... Blank/black Screen When Turn On
I'm more of a desktop user but my husband gave me this laptop on January 2007. Since then, I think I only used it for less than 20 hours (we don't have a wireless)... when we got out of town.

The last time I used it, about a year ago, it turned off by itself. I tried to use it again when I got home but the screen is just blank whenever I turn it on. What could be the problem? I don't think it's a good idea to send it for repair to HP as the warranty expired already.

when I turn it on, all the blue lights turn on... but the screen won't therefore I can't use it. Ealier, I hooked up an external monitor but didn't work. Could it be an LCD problem?

The notebook doesn't have any scratch or whatsoever. It still looks like new, yet not working.

Dell :: I9300 Gfx Card Dead - Gives A Black Screen After The Xp Spalsh Screen
I was browsing the internet a day ago and I was on a "COLLEGE" website so i know this is not due to a virus. At this time all of a suden my screen went black.

I powered the laptop off and turned it back on, The Dell logo appeared but the screen was fuzzy and had some "tearing" i dont really know what to call it but it doesnt look right. Kind of like an old VCR playing videos. The screen then whent black after the windows xp splash screen. The laptop still boots to windows but it does not display anything.

I booted into safe mode, everything functions correctly and the way it's supposed to. I then booted into VGA mode same thing everything functions and works the way it is supposed to. I also ran some virus scans just incase, nothing was found.

Whilist in safe mode i changed the resolution down to 800 x 600 and still no luck after booting in regular mode.

In VGA mode i tryed to change resolution and the screen displayed some blue fuzzy lines then whent black.

After this I booted back into safe mode and done severeral diffrent System Restores at diffrent dates. Still no luck

After going through all this I am assuming this is a GFX card problem. The laptop is about 3 years old and ive played games pretty hard on it ever since. The card has defenitly gone through some some stress. Can anyone confirm this?

I know that the i9300 sells for about 400 working, and i checked on ebay for a card that is a whopping 180 bucks. Id just assume buy a new laptop. Then sell the i9300 laptop for parts because everything else works fine. Or maybe buy the card swich it out and sell it for a price. Maybe there is a way to fix it i dont know. can anyone help?

Lastly, i thought i would add that when i check the bios the card is recognized and it displays all the correct info for the card. IS there a way to tell for 100% that the card is bad?

Sony :: Is The 1920x1080 Screen On The Style Uk Site A X-black Screen With Multiple Lamp
is the sony FW35V(customizable) on the sony style uk site a 1920x1080 a dual lamp LCD?
it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs 60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for 60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?

Apple :: LED Bulb Life - Screen No Longer Even Turns On Which Means The Backlight Is Dead
In the past, I used to have an hp pavalion laptop. I usually kept the screen at a little past half brightness and in 3 years, the screen no longer even turns on which means the backlight is dead. The same thing is true for my mother's 17 inch lcd monitor. Now I realize that this may just be bad luck, but I don't want to risk anything with my new macbook.

What's a "safe" level to leave the brightness at? And is the LED long lasting? Is it expensive to replace? I hate dim screens but I don't want this screen to die that fast, I want to make this last AT LEAST 8 years.

I was thinking it might be better if I were running XP, at least getting me Medium settings. Anyone have this laptop or does anyone know where I could find a list of components to see if I can actually get drivers. Only a few show up on hp.com and I've already returned the laptop instead of just trying it. I should mention I know I didnt buy a gaming laptop, I just want to run a few games.

HP/Compaq :: HP G60 445DX (Normal) Temperatures

The computer is about 5 months old. I am using it over a notebook cooler like this one [url], and about 2 inches above the table.Are these normal temperatures, especially regaring to the GPU? Up to now, I haven't experienced any freezzing, lagging, shutdown, blue screens or lines in screen yet, but it get's excessively hot, more on its right upper side.

Common usage temperatures are around:

HP/Compaq :: HP G60-535DX : Upgrading Memory
I just bought a new HP laptop and it has 3gb ddr2 memory. It says that the max memory is 4gb, but I was wondering if you can put in say 6gb or 8gb? Reason I ask is because I saw a sony laptop that was essentially the same with the memory being the exception. On the Sony, it came with 4gb and was expandable to 8gb. Oh, and my laptop is running Windows 7 64bit if that matters. If its not possible, Ill just upgrade to 4gb... If you guys could though, maybe tell me what limits a pc's ability to run a certain amount of memory? Mine has 2 slots for memory and I have seen some 4gb sticks for sale, but Im not going to spend the money on something that wont work.

HP/Compaq :: G60-244DX- Reducing Temp
I have an HP G60-244DX with 3GB ram, AMD Dual Core Ql-62 at 2.00 GHz, Windows 7 32 bit, and nVidia GeForce 8200m G with 1394 MB memory (integrated gfx card). I got the blue screen of death a few weeks back so I went out and bought a laptop cooler.

Anyways I was playing Left 4 Dead and I got the BSOD, sometimes when I play L4D, I'll get a black screen and the laptop shuts off (battery fully charged, power cord hooked in)...haven't had this problem since buying the cooler but the laptop does get pretty hot.

Things that I noticed will bring up the CPU and GPU temps are windows media player and playing a full screen game. I'm using CPUID Monitor.

Under heavy load (i.e playing L4D), the CPU cores get up to 107 degrees ceclius and the GPU core up to 110 degrees celcius (doesn't stay there but the temp runs up that high).

I know laptops aren't made for gaming and I've been reading that AMD processors generally get higher temps. than Intel.

Is there a way to lower the tempreture of CPU and GPU while havin the laptop under heavy load (even with a cooler)?

Dell :: How Black Is The Covet Screen
How black is your RGBLED screen? If you look at the black screen (say, black desktop background) in a completely dark room, is the screen uniformly black? Mine has some slightly brighter "shadows" (well, it's actually the opposite of a shadow) towards the middle of the screen. Granted, this is a tough test for a laptop LCD, but for that kind of money I would have expected more. My M90 certainly does better in that regard, but I do seem to recall that the screen on that laptop had a similar issue, and did improve over time.

So, is what I am seeing normal, or should I get them to give me a new LCD?

Dell :: Screen Suddenly Went Black
2 days ago, when starting my computer (Windows logo after POST), my screen suddenly went black. After 20 seconds it changed to my external screen as normal. This made me suspicious as my screen usually goes black only for 2-3 seconds during startup.

After startup I tried changing back to the internal WUXGA screen on the laptop by pressing FN+F8.

What happened then was that from the left side of the laptop, I heard this weird high-frequency scratching sound. The screen went on for a fraction of a second ( I could see the desktop ) but then it instantly went black again.

What can be causing this?

I installed the WUXGA screen myself about half a year ago. Can this be caused by loose cable connection or something like that?

HP/Compaq :: HP G60-507dx Review *56K Warning*
I just picked up 2 HP g60-507dx laptops at Best Buy yesterday for $197.00 before tax (1 for me and 1 for the wife). I stood in line for 8+ hours in the cold with some friends and had a blast doing it. I'm really glad I got in line at 8pm the night before. I was the 9th person in line and the last person to get the laptop door buster deal.... and man was the door buster deal really slick this year. I've never bought a full laptop for under 500.00 before, and having 2 laptops with Windows 7 for 197.00 each was just too good to pass up. Even a license for Windows 7 alone costs over 120.00 so in reality you get a slick new system for roughly next to nothing.

Anyway back to the review! Last time I did a review it was for my Acer Aspire 5672 series 4 years ago - Link, and I'm happy to say that my old laptop is still going strong with Windows 7. The reason for this new purchase was because I was looking for something to take to work or on trips that I wouldn't be distraught over if I left it in a cab or it was damaged / broken / etc. That and a netbook just wasn't my style (too small, etc.)
