HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2500- Wont Boot Properly, Black Screen
i have a 1.5 year old HP PAVILION dv2500.
A couple days ago I tried turning the laptop on, and it just went to an all black screen.
I could not click/type anything (nothing worked), and I couldnt open the CD drive.
After a few minutes, the laptop shut down by itself.

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.
HP/Compaq :: Still Doing It- 23 Times To Boot Up Properly
Well my HP dv6000 is still acting up.
Sometimes the laptop will not fully start/load. Meaning it never fully reaches the point when you can surf the net.
When it is not fully functional my mouse will not work when I click on IE or even the start button it can't activate them. It moves but does not activate any icons.
So I'll have to manually shut the lap top down by pushing the power button.
Next time it boots, It may not get to the point where the wireless is not up and running so I can't get IE to run it seems to fall short on booting to that point.
Then I have to hold the power button down to get it to reboot and start again.
Most all the time on the third reboot everything will work fine and run normally.
Time to reinstall my recovery discs and start clean ?
Dell :: XPS M1710 Black Screen Wont Boot
When I start up my laptop the Windows splash screen loads but with vertical lines then the screen shows random fuzzy lines and colours and then the screen goes completely black and nothing happens.
At first I restarted and ran in Safe Mode and ran CCleaner which after restarting worked for a short period but then would suddenly go to a black screen and one occasion went to a blue screen with the following message
*** Hardware Malfunction

NMI: Parity Check/Memory Parity Error

Apple :: Macbook Pro Doesn't Boot. Black Screen
i'm having a issue with my santa rosa mbp. I left for dinner and left my notebook on. Naturally the machine went to sleep. After i came back the machine would not boot up, the screen doesn't even turn on. The light on the latch release remains on. When i try a hard reboot, i'm having the same issue. Black screen, doesn't even get to the grey screen with the apple logo. I've tried going on 1 dimm or ram to see if it's a issue with the ram and still doesn't fix it.
Apple :: Bootcamp - 60 Seconds Pause On Boot - Black Screen White Cursor
Just installed Visa 64 , everything went fine , but every time i boot into Vista i get a black screen with a white cursor in the top left have corner flashing very fast and it does this for almost 60 seconds and then Vista boots normally.
I have tried unplugging everything from my Mac , but i still get the same problem.
It looks like Vista is wating for something then it gives up, I have not installed any software only the bootcamp driver.
Anybody know what is wrong, I had Xp on previously and did not have this problem on fat32 , Vista only works on NTFC if that makes a difference.
Dell :: Cannot Boot Properly
I just got a few parts replaced on my M1730. After about an hour of it working perfect, the computer froze and crashed. After that,
I could not boot up properly -I couldn't even boot into safe mode.
I have wiped the computer, and I'm still having issues. Sometimes it freezes on the Windows 7 bootup screen, sometimes it freezes on the password screen.
Sometimes it lets me use it for 10-15 minutes before freezing. However, it keeps freezing. No bluescreen, nothing. Just completely frozen. I have *NEVER* had freezing issues before.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6428ca Won't Boot
I am trying to diagnose a friends laptop.
At first I thought perhaps the backlight went on it, but since then i've noticed a few other issues.
When I power on the laptop everything lights up and I can hear the DVD drive and HDD startup normally. But I get no HP splash screen and the monitor doesn't seem to power on either. Which I'm guessing means it's not posting, cause I even plugged it into an external monitor and it doesn't even pickup anything and goes to sleep mode.
After about 10-15 seconds it looks like the laptop reboots itself and starts up the DVD and HDD again but nothing...it just loops.
Is there something wrong with the motherboard ? I checked the monitor for a loose connection and the laptop in general for any internal loose connections and everything seemed fine.
My guess is the motherboard went and maybe the backlight at the same time...I have no idea...
HP/Compaq :: Vista: CPU 100% On Every Boot (HP Pavilion Dv2200)
I've had my HP dv2200 notebook since Vista came out and yes I've had problems with it, but I've never had this one.
Since two days ago, every time I boot up, my CPU is running at 100%. This is from a full start-up or even out of hibernation mode. After 10-15 it dies down to 5-15% but occasionally goes back up to 100% even when idle.
Besides going to the usual sites I go to, I didn't download anything or visit any sites I'm not used to going to. There was a Windows Update I had in my task bar for several days that I finally installed, but it didn't require a restart.
My anti-virus software is avast! free version (latest version w/ definitions updated).
Under task manager there are two svshost.exe's that jump around from 30 to 50, and Firefox is at 50 or so when I try to run it (which takes 30 seconds to open during the 100% cpu). And when the CPU does die down to 5-15% it says that 'System Idle Process' is jumping up to 95 which doesn't add up.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv9750ep And Windows 7 In Dual Boot
I own a HP Pavilion Laptop.
It says "HP Pavilion dv9000" on the screen frame, and says "HP Pavilion dv9700" and "dv9750ep" on the labels in the back. Guess it makes it a HP Pavilion dv9750ep?
It has 2 Hard Disks, each of 150GB; I believe it's 2 physical disks and not just partitions as in the device manager shows 2 ...
- WDC WD1600BEVS-60RST0
- WDC WD1600BEVS-60RST0
It came with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit.
My issue is:
I'd like to try the beta of Windows 7, using the 2nd Hard Disk for that. I've been using it mainly for data backup, but as I have an external drive I guess I could make the 2nd dirsk free for trying Windows 7.
My reason for wanting to try Windows 7 is Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Some of my buddies tried it in Windows 7 and are reporting a noticeable performance increase.
When it comes to Laptops, and since this is my first one, I'm very reluctant to these moves - mainly because of the proprietary drivers... for instance, if I want to update my NVidia card drivers that must be made through HP and not through the regular channels - or so I think.
Would it be possible to install Windows 7 on the 2nd Hard Disk and make it a Dual Boot system?
Would I have problems with HP-specific drivers?
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6000 Intel Motherboard 434723-001 Will Not Boot
I know that the dv6000 is one of the worst laptops but I still tried to repair it and got a new motherboard.
Initial problem: fried motherboard.
Got a refurb one off ebay now my issues is as following:
Press the on power button, fan spins for 2 seconds and computer remains on with no boot posting. Hard drive light is OFF and I can't hear the harddrive but I don't think it is the hd because I should still be able to access the bios and monitor should still light on. screen doesn't display anything. cd drive works and when I put a cd such as a windows disc you will hear it work for a couple minutes.
I tried everything from resetting the power cycle, removed the memory, harddrive, connected an external monitor, changed the little battery inside the motherboard. all power cables and ribbons are connected. keyboard won't respond though (fn light wont light on and ctrl alt delete produces nothing) ! I hate HP. after opening the computer I realzied what a piece of junk.
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 :: DV 6000 GPU (black Screen )
I have problem with blackscreen on a dv6000, and after some searching I found some tips.
One of them was to check the soldering at the GPU and the BGA, but...to the question:
Where is the GPU and what is the BGA?
I have found some chips labeled Nvidia, but I'm not sure.
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?
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 :: Mypavillion Dv2500
my hp pavillion dv2500 laptop computer.
It use to get hot quick and I was neglected to maintain it well for about 5 months as I have so many other things to take care. It is now getting very hot too quickly.
Now it started giving me problems on starting the computer.
On each re-boot it is behaving weird.
Sometimes it shows 6 login screens and screen will have images shrinked having test blurred out. after couple of restarts its prompt me to repair the windows After I repair; it either starts normally or again comes back with 6 login screens. Even it starts again normally it won't stay more than 30 mins and it automatically shutsdown and restarts with 6 login screens and prompts me to repair the window again. it is keep happening
I contacted HP customer support, but since it is out of warranty period they couldn't really helped me but mentioned to me that it may be a problem with the mother board or video card. But I believe if it is a hardware problem it should behave consistant
What I am thinking is a heat problem with a corrupted OS. But not sure. Any body have any idea how to get out of this problem
my laptop configuration is :
Intel core 2 duo 2.4 g hz processor
4 GB RAM ( 2x 2GB)
250 GB Hitachi hard drive
Windows Vista Business 32 Bit OS
Nividia Gfx card with 64 MB viedeo memory
HP/Compaq :: Windows 7 On Dv2500
I know hp doesn't support windows 7 on their dv2500 models. I figure i can install it, 7 will find most of the drivers automatically, then I'll have to search for a couple on my own. Any of you install 7 on a 2500? I'm guessing i can just take drivers from the dv4 or another similar model,
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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Black Rubber 'bumpers' On Screen
What is the best way to clean the screen and black rubber 'bumpers' on the sides of the screen (they attract everything to them and seem impossible to keep clean.)
I ordered my system with the infinity display (fake glass over the screen lol), can I use a solution spray (like Monster, etc) to clean the whole thing or what?
HP/Compaq :: Dv2500- Display Driver
my laptop is dv2500 and for e past 2 days, my display driver has been giving me a lot of problems.
at times, the screen would just go fuzzy and i won't be able to see anything so i have to power off my computer. at times, the screen goes totally blank and the computer restarts itself. when it does restart the screen stays blank and i have to shut down using alt+f4. at times i'll just get a BSOD for nvlddmkm error. and at times, the screen will go black and then return with the message "the display driver stopped responding and has recovered". the screen was fuzzy but i still did manage to make out that message.
i rolled back my driver to the default drivers that came with this laptop and after that, e screen has only gone blank once only to come back again totally alright 3 secs later with the same "display driver recovered" message.
this only started happening like 2-3 days ago but today it happened like atleast 5-6 times within 6 hrs. so i was wondering what's really the problem? i have searched around for people having this problem but their problem isn't as unique as mine. for them, it usually happens while playing games. for me it happens anytime, like during normal usage or whatever.
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.
HP/Compaq :: Hp Pavilion Dv2000 Screen

Not sure what the problem is I pluged in VGA monitor it doesnt turn on ? Any idea why i hit fn f4 nothing is happening? How do i get alt monitor show whats going on screen?...
HP/Compaq :: Hp Pavilion Zx5060us- Screen
i found this laptop and everything works 100% but the screen has a red hue and blank out alot and you have to push that little pin thing couple times so the screen comes back on.
but now its hardly stays on and i figure i get a screen for it and i was looking on ebay and found one for cheep and found one thats a zx5000 with a inverter with a number as LP154W01 A3 K.
i took my screen out and its ltn154x1-l02 so different numbers but it looks like it wil fit sense they look the same.
HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV9605ea Replacement Screen
i have recently purcahsed a 2nd hand DV9605ea laptop, which had a broken screen
i purchased another screen from ebay and have sort of succesfully replaced it.
however there are a couple of problems. firstly the screen that i took off had only 2 leads that connect to part of the motherboard, and the replacement has 3. i have connected up 2 of the wires and the monitor is working but i can only get a screen resolution of 1024 x 768. i have tried to install the nvidia drivers/software but i keep getting the error message no hardware found for this software. this also happens when microsoft updates tries to install the same software.
i guess that the monitor i am using is obviously from a different spec macine although it is from the dv9000 series.
can i use it with only the 2 cables and still get it up to 1400 x 900?
or can i upgrade the graphics card?
here is a link to show what 2 wires i am refering to.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv9500 - Desktop Screen Was Frozen With Mouse Cursor
I have a HP Pavilion dv9500 notebook and yesterday after more than two years of pretty much running smoothly it wouldn't boot. First it actually booted into windows but the whole desktop screen was frozen with mouse cursor. So I turned it off, turned it back on and it booted into blue screen and restarted itself. After couple of tries I booted into safe mode which was running fine.
I wasn't sure what the problem was but I was thinking it must be software related, so I loaded an image of my system which I've used before and knew was ok. But even after putting a brand new OS it was doing the same thing.
One time I was actually able to boot into normal mode so I thought maybe the issue got resolved magically. But, I have my external monitor plugged in and even when in normal mode the signal wouldn't go through, so I had to use my laptop monitor. I kept trying to switch the signal and even though it was showing the icon like it's transferring nothing happened. So I checked my video card properties and the card all of the sudden had no drivers and was basically unrecognized by the OS.
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?
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?
HP/Compaq :: HP Laptop Won't Start Properly
My brother has got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop. When he tries to start the laptop he gets a blue screen with the error message contained in the attached file. When I try restarting and pressing F8 to enter Safe Mode it just continues to this screen.
It started happening after HP requested that he download some new software to his machine. He did so and this problem started. It was a popup on the screen which asked him to install new software.
I am trying to troubleshoot it for him.
HP/Compaq :: HP Dv6 Broadcom Wireless Won't Connect Properly
I have a HP dv6-1133ea (in my sig). It has the broadcom wireless card. It is running windows 7 64 bit.
Just recently the wireless has started acting up. It can see my home network fine but just won't connect properly saying "no network connectivity" etc. I know that the network is fine as my partner's vaio (and incidentally my old Toshiba A30 that I am using to write this post) can connect fine.
I have tried re-installing the vista 64 driver from HP's website but that makes no difference. Turning the wireless on and off or restarting also doesn't change things. I have also tried re-adding the network key but that did nothing too.
Has anyone else had this problem or have any ideas what to do?
W7 has always been a tad funny with wireless...
HP/Compaq :: HDX16 Wont Burn Anything Properly
I've had this HDX since January, and have had nothing but problems whenever i tried to burn a dvd or cd.
The version of Nero i had isnt compatible with Vista, and im not getting the new one, so it took me forever to find some free soft. I've tried Astroburner, CDburnerXP, and Infrarecorder.
Astroburner: Constantly locks up, sometimes cant even see my drive, and if i CAN get it to burn something, it never completes it. it just sits there.
CDburnerXP: Is not compatible with my drive at all, it doesnt see it.
Infrarecorder: has given me the best results, i've burnt a few data CD's, that went smoothly. But today, i wanted to burn a DVD data disc with a whole bunch of AVI's, it spun up the disc, and then just sat there at 0%, disc spinning for 1 hour. Drive was locked, program locked, couldnt end task, NOTHING.
I had to hold the power button down to get it to stop.
I have the BC-5500S, BD-rom / DVD RW

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 :: E1705 Screen Going Black
I have a three year old E1705 and after several minutes using it the screen flickers a tad bit then goes black.
I can shut if off but it will not go back to normal until it wants to. Sometimes this is a half hour or sometimes several hours almost as if it is to hot but the CPU temp is normaly 45 C to 50 C.
