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 :: Screen Replacement Options
In general, for screen replacement on a HP business notebook, what is the best option?
1) Ship it back to HP
2) Let a tech replace it onsite
3) Ask for the whole display assembly and replace it myself
I've mostly had Dell business notebooks in the past, so I'm not sure how good HP business repair quality is. I've searched the forums here and found some stories of people not being very happy with their repair quality when it has been sent back to HP and when they've had technicians on site so I was considering just asking for the whole display assembly and then replacing it myself.
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.

Just picked this up. Let me know if I got a good deal. I wanted to buy a Dell, but didn't want to spend over $1500 for the Studio 16 XPS.
Dell was offering the Studio with Core2 Duo and did not offer a sale on the i7 version. Hope I dont miss out on the LED LCD screen.

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 :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird
Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.
Here's the background and problem:
Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.
I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Dell :: Vostro Screen Replacement
I have a Dell Vostro 1500 (bought in 2007). I recently dropped it on the ground and the screen backlight got damaged. I ordered a new screen off eBay. I need help figuring out whether the screen that I ordered is compatible with my laptop. Here are the specs:
Manufacturer: AU Optronics
Manufacturer: AU Optronics
Model: B154EW02 V.6
The original screen doesn't have any version number, but the new one is V.6 (I'm assuming V stands for version).
Both are 15.4" WXGA, 1280 x 800 and Wide (16:10). The only difference that I can find is that the original screen is glossy, while the new one is matte.
Does the version number (or glossy/matte) make any difference?
Dell :: M1530 Screen Replacement
I currently have an XPS m1530 with the WXGA glossy screen (1280x800) and was looking to replace it with the WUXGA screen (nothing wrong with the current screen; just need more resolution.)
1. Can I just do a simple swap? In other words, do I have to worry about details like video card etc.?
2. What are the questions that I need to ask before buying one? (e.g. Manufacturer, warranty, brightness, type etc.?)
3. Glossy vs non-glossy - please let me know your opinions
4. Would the ones sold on eBay (links below) work fine? .....
Dell :: M1710 Screen Replacement
My M1710 is 2.5 yrs old now but is still working fine for me. The only problem is is my LCD screen has some problem and i see a lot of dots on it especially when the background is dark like in a horror movie.
But still it is usuable. I showed it to my local engineer and also contacted dell and they asked me to get a new warranty and they will replace the lcd.
But I don't really want to spend that much and I have a spare LCD monitor which i am currently using with a VGA cable. I can do tasks as long as it doesn't require me to use the keyboard as the screen is almost closed.
Acer :: 6920G Screen Replacement
I have the same problem as the user in another thread Acer Aspire 6930 screen replacement
but since the layout of 6920 and 6930 are different, I stuck at the part when I have to pull out two video cables beneath speaker cover, cause there is only one cable (that I am aware of) in 6920. So I hope someone could explain to me what to do next after removing speaker cover, cause I don't want to brick my laptop
Dell :: Replacement Studio 1555 Screen
I cracked my screen a while ago, and ordered a new part off some dinky little website. I was aware that the resolution would be 1366x768 instead of 1600x900 on this new screen, but I was unable to find the exact part I broke. Now, many months later, I decided to search again. I found this page.
Would anyone be kind enough as to look over those, and let me know which screen would be the 'best' one to get, whatever that might mean. I notice they are all the same price, but have different specs in the names. I am more of a software guy, and rely on others help for hardware advice.

i have a inspiron 6000 model# PP12L and need a new screen.
the one that is in there has the number 154X2LO2.

Dell :: XPS 1530 Screen Replacement
I bought my XPS1530 about a year ago. I am impressed with it, i hadnt used a laptop before and now i have tried a few different ones i have decided that the 1280x800 screen could be improved to a bigger resolution.
Is it possible to just change the display to a bigger one? or do i need other bits and pieces? The mobo was replaced last week due to a glitchy gfx issue .....
Acer :: Aspire 6930 Screen Replacement
I have an Acer aspire 6930G home theatre system. The screen has been cracked and needs to be replaced. Can anyone help with either instruction on how to remove the screen.

Sony :: Screen Repair/replacement Compatible
i have an 11.1" screen tx series, but the screen is cracked.
i have checked on various site, ebay store, and the cheapest i can get an oem replacement is around $300.
i am just wondering is it possible i can just buy any 11.1" netbook, and use its screen on the sony machine? since the netbook costs about the same as the lcd screen, and i can use the other parts too.
Sony :: SZ61WN/C Screen Bezel Replacement
I'm looking for a replacement screen bezel/surround to fit my SZ61WN/C (mine is cracked in half at the bottom between the N and Y of Sony! N is lost in the abyss so I currently have a SO Y Laptop ).
After a bit of digging on this site I have found the disassembly guides and nexttronics who will deliver what I need to me here in the UK, my only issue is that I'm not sure which one I need to buy.
I'm think its one on this page (below) under the "lcd133led" section as it is an led backlit screen with motion eye camera (on diagram as 1011).
My model isn't listed as its a European version (the SZ61WN/C is an all black Premium Carbon model), is there an equivalent US model number that anyone knows of?
Apple :: 2006 Macbook Screen Replacement
I need to replace the broken screen on my late 2006 Black Macbook. The thing is I do not know which screen to buy. It would appear that the Macbook was sold with various different screens.
I was just wondering which one was the best? I heard that the Samsung one was terrible. I think the others were LG Philips and AUO, there could have been others Im not sure. As I am replacing it I want to get the best one.
Dell :: XPS 1640 Screen Replacement Dust Inside
I just want to know if Dell fixed the problem with their new screens, i am having some dust particles in the lower left hand corner..
i called Dell and after arguing with the rep, he said they will send me a box and i have to ship the Laptop to them for a screen replacement. The rep was saying that this was due because i dropped the laptop and cracked the screen, this is ridiculous because the laptop has been sitting on my desk and never been dropped.
Anyway, i just want to know if they fixed the new screens, because if they don't i can wait because the replacement screen will have to be replaced again in few months..........
HP/Compaq :: Reviving An Old Pavilion
My Pavilion dv8333ea's (specs here) GPU died the other day
It was getting old (3.5 years) but I'd never had a problem with it before and aside from the GPU it still works fine (except the screen looks like it may have been programmed by Picasso (random pixels everywhere!).
If this were any other laptop, I'd just replace it, but there was something special about this one: It had a firewire port with a Texas Instruments chipset (this is the Holy Grail of firewire audio recording). Plus, it genuinely was a good laptop
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion 5228TX
when I brought out my old HP dv5228TX laptop for a 3 month trip. When i brought it with me, the power cord was already burnt through around the adaptor so i bought a new one immediately. The problem is, i kept getting blue screen of death whenever i do ANYTHING in windows, which was a major annoyance. I thought it might have been the CD-ROM that was beginning to be faulty or dying so i disabled it in hardware manager. When the BSODs wouldn't go away, i thought it might have been a memory hardware problem. I set out to find 1gb ddr2 memory (2 of them) but since they were 45$ each, i thought i might as well wait until my trip to taiwan before i hastily bought it here (since taiwan has cheaper hardware).
Now previously i had owned a NuSlim MOBILE disk case so that i can take out the harddrive in my HP pavilion laptop to access the files in case the computer itself failed. So when the Blue screen of death wouldn't go away, I decided to use the NuSlim mobile disk to store my HP hard drive and use it on my HP Presario B1900 laptop as a USB Drive. I searched on the internet and learned that you can boot directly from a USB drive. When i decided to boot from my "hp pavilion hard drive" the USB way, a MBR error popped up. Which meant that the hard disc itself had a bad master boot sector. This was a slap in the face because my Blue screen of death could have been all attributed to a corrupted hard drive. When i discovered this, I immediately tried to put my harddrive back into my HP pavilion so that i can run recovery manager directly via F11 at startup.
Now here is my problem! Not only does it not let me go into recovery manager at all at start up when i press F11, windows does not even boot. The weird thing is, when I put the harddrive into the NuSlim mobile disk, all the files works (including the recovery partition).
Is it possible to reformat my entire hard drive back to factory condition since the recovery partition is techinically there? It just won't let me enter it possibly due to bad master boot sector. I even tried to access the recovery partition itself through the USB via my HP presario. Is it also possible to create a recovery disc if i have access to this recovery partition even though booting it from the HP pavilion itself doesn't seem to work? Please help as soon as possible because i do not wish to purchase a recovery disc from HP since i do not have warranty anymore (and since i have the recovery partition anyway). the OS i'm using is Windows XP and i tried looking on the HP website for the recovery order form but apparently they dont have it. I do not wish to purchase the Vista recovery disc since my HP pavilion is only 1gb and it will not run well on vista.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion ZT1155
I forgot my power-up password. How can I reset it. Called Hp and they want my first born for a laptop that is a number of years old. Nephew had similar problem with a Dell and we were able to prove over the phone that we were the original owner and they supplied a master password. HP will not do the same with their product.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion DV5
I have a Pavilion dv5-1203ax with AMD Turion X2 and ATi Mbility Radeon HD 3450.
I have a strange issue.. the system stops charging the battery at anytime...sometimes it charges the battery properly and other time it stops at 40 % , 50 % , 90 % etc.
The battery charges to 100 % normally when Windows is off and power suply is left on...
I changed the battery but the problem still exists
While the battery charges... HP Battery Check show Good when it does not, the battery check shows Replace...
I've formatted the system and tried Vista twice and Windows 7 also and recaliberated the battery but to no success...
Is it the motherboard...
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv 7, Heat
I got a HP Pavilion Dv7 not to long ago, about six months to be exact...
Anyways, it used to be fine for heat but as of late, it idles at around 70 C for the dual cores and GPU...it's beginning to worry me a bit because when i play games they can reach temperatures of 90 C.
By the way, I have the most recent Bios update and I have cleaned the vents too. Something worth noting though is that when I bought this laptop it was the only one left, which was the display unit, do you reckon that it may have had wear and tear due to this already?
HP/Compaq :: Hp Pavilion Dv6000

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV9500
Last night I was on my computer working on a graphic design project for school (was running Photoshop) when the screen went a weird purple color and then completely blank after a minute or so. The computer was still running, however, and pretty hard at that, so I shut it off. Since then, whenever I turn it on the screen shows up split into four, equal, horizontal parts.
If I do not touch anything, it will continue to show the Microsoft loading screen, but then shows a blue screen for a few seconds then reboots. Screen Pic
If I press Esc at the initial restart Screen Pic, it launches "Windows error recovery" and gives a choice between using 'Launch Start Up Repair' and 'Start Windows Normally' Screen Pic. It will not start up Windows (Vista), instead it reboots the computer and starts all over again. When I try Startup Repair Screen Pic, after a few minutes, it asks me if I want to restore my computer using System Restore. After about 10 minutes I get a message saying that it cannot repair the problem automatically.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv2
I'm currently looking into buying a new ultraportable laptop or netbook and this notebook looks like it fits my needs perfectly. My old 15.4" laptop is starting to show it's age and is becoming a pain to lug around campus all day. Plus the battery life is starting to decrease to under 1:30 hours..
Is there any word when this notebook will be available? I read that it's going to be sometime this month. How much will it be with the external DVD or Blu-ray drive? And are there going to be any other battery options other than the standard 4-cell? I'm probably only willing to purchase this notebook if it gets 4-5+ hours of battery life.. so how long do you think it will last?
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6

I had earlier decided on the dell studio 15 but i found the hp with better config.
HP/Compaq :: Wireless Acting Up In A Pavilion
About a week ago, I booted my computer to find that the led light that indicates activity on the wireless didn't turn blue, and of course, there was not a wireless connection nor a way to set up one. I checked the device manager and found no problems, then checked out the HP Wireless Assistant. Puzzlingly, the assistant reported the wireless as on and without any problem, so I fired the command line unity (wireless.exe). It adviced to make sure that the switch of the wireless was on, and that the wireless was activated in the BIOS, so I rebooted and pressed f10. Nowehre in the BIOS could I find any kind of option about the wireless, so I just rebooted normally, and lo, the wireless was back. I thought that I had unadvertedly fixed it in the BIOS and let it be.
Fast forward a few days, I got the same problem when I booted up the ol' laptop, so I just rebooted, entered the BIOS again, and rebooted back. This time it didn't work out so I just rebooted the computer twice, and it was fixed. Since my job relies so much on the internet, I decided just to suspend my machine after use instead shutting it down, to avoid a new booting up into wirlessness; but yesterday, when I woke it back from suspension, the wireless was dead again! It took me no less than 7 reboots to make it start up again. Now I'm really paranoid that next time it happens, there will be no return, so Im keeping the computer on, 24/7 until I get some help,
The computer is a Pavilion Entertainment PC Special Edition with an AMD Turion 64x2, 2 Gbs of RAM and Windows XP. I've had it for one year and a half without trouble until now.
HP/Compaq :: Pavilion Dv25XX Overheating
Recently, my g/f's HP pavilion dv2500 has really been overheating. It's about a year and a half old and it's kept in relatively good condition. It is off warranty.
Over the past week the temps are really high. The air blowing out the side is hot to the touch. I'm not sure the temps, but they have to be high. The plastic covering over the power button on the left side is hot to the touch.
I'm tech savvy, but not an expert. I did research on this model and there are overheating issues. Would I have to reapply thermal paste or order a new fan? I've taken apart notebooks before, but never because of a problem like this.

HP/Compaq :: Pavilion DV5- Cooling
despite the fact that it can only use 3 of its 4 gigs of RAM, I still love my new DV5.
There's only one, tiny kink...
It's getting hot. Very hot. My hands aren't burning, but I can feel the heat in my palms.
Core 0: Average temperature's around 47C
Core 1: Avg. Temp. is 49C
GPU: Here's the real problem. IT'S ON FREAKING 54C!!!
These temperatures are bloody DANGEROUS. And I'm going to be using this for gaming.
HP/Compaq :: HP Pavilion Dv6-1299ea
I have just seen this HP laptop on www.play.com and it looks pretty amazing! It's up for pre-order coming out on Friday and is £599, here are its specs:
Processor: AMD Turion X2 mobile processor RM-75 / 2.2 GHz
HD Capacity: 320GB
Graphics Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 - 1GB
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit
Dimensions (WxDxH): 37.9 cm x 25.8 cm x 4.1 cm
Weight: 2.9 kg
The only thing that stops me from just pre-ordering this laptop is the fact it hasn't been released yet and so there aren't any reviews saying whether it's good or bad that and that I have never used AMD instead of Intel and the last ATI graphics card I had was shocking to say the least. What do you guys think? Are HP laptops good, reliable etc and are these specs that great?
