HP Pavilion Dv6 Recovery :: Laptop Turns On But No Backlight On Monitor
Sep 29, 2014
When powering my lappie on, I can hear the fans and the hard drive start, the lights come on but there is no backlight on the monitor. I did a hard boot but nothing. I tried to get into bios pressing ESCAPE or F10 after restart but same nothingness. If I can't get my lappie working, I would at least like to get data off it.
My current problem is that when switching from the mobile power-saving GPU I lose the backlight on my screen when the high performance GPU kicks in. The HDMI output is displaying video when in High Performance, but the screen of the laptop will only show a picture with no backlight, and can only be seen by shining a light on the screen.¬†
Just started happening the last few days, I've tried a system restore (didn't allow it), tried uninstalling all of the AMD drivers and software then reinstalling with their updated drivers, as well as the same process but with the HP drivers that came with the laptop, still the same result.Is it possible for the high performance GPU to be failing some how or is this a software issue?
I have a DV9000 and just yesterday it started where the screen will go black but I can see what is going on on the screen but it is extremely faint. When I close the lid for a few seconds and open it back up it the screen appears like normal but only for about twenty seconds and then returns to the black. If I hook it up to an external monitor and I can see what is going on.
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.
I am having HP Pavilion DV6 6140Tx¬†. Installed Windows 8 Enterprise Edition and updated drivers using drivers for Windows 7 64x from HP site ¬† The problem is that, when i shutdown my laptop, it doesnt shutsdown, it turns off the screen, but not the processor, fan, touchpad, the light and fan movement is ON and it never shuts down. Then I have forcibly press n hold the Power button to shut it down ! ¬† It also has a delayed Startup issue! But Restart ¬†function just works fine..! ¬† I don't graphics drivers installed on the system - its AMD ATI RADEON 6700M HD - no compatible drivers available !
I have an HP Pavillion model 17-e019dx running Windows 8. Every time I turn it on, it stops at a blue screen that says ¬† Recovery Your PC needs to be repaired ¬†A required device isn't connected or cannot be accessed ¬†Error code 0xc000000f ¬† When I press enter to "Try again" it come back with: ¬† File:WindowsSystem32winload.efi above the error code listed above. ¬† I have tried the Recovery and after MUCH time waiting, it still comes back to the above mentioned screen. I have also run all the diagnostics that are available on the laptop and everything come back normal.¬†I don't have the original¬†discs or documentation as I "received this laptop as a "gift/curse" . It is, however, registered to me.
Equipment:¬†HP Notebook g7 Operating system:¬†Windows 8¬† ¬† I purchased a Pavilion g7¬†laptop¬†in December 2012.¬† The 1TB HDD that came with the laptop started to¬†go bad¬†on me.¬† After several attempts to 'system self-repair' (which failed) I purchased a replacement Seagate SSHD 1TB HD.¬† Since I did not have any Windows 8¬†recovery discs I contacted HP, paid for and had them sent to me. ¬† So now I have a new SSHD, new W8 recovery discs and my laptop.¬† I replaced the HD and started the recovery process per the paper¬†instructions that came with the discs. ¬† At 4% (in the 'Copying files required to restore the hard drive phase') I get an error message: ¬† ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Reducer (Title of the error message) ¬† ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Copy File Fails ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† From: D:/PRELOAD/BASE14.SWM ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† To:¬† C:/RM/Image/BASE14.SWM ¬† ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Press OK to retry.¬† ¬† Obviously since I'm posting about this¬†simply pressing 'OK to retry' did not work.¬† I powered the laptop down and restarted the recovery process.¬† I got the same error message at the same point described above.
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.
My hp pavilion touchsmart 14 sleekbook was acting funny so I decided it was time to reset it back to factory settings. I didn't realize it would take so long. I use my computer for work and I've got about 30 minutes before I have to leave. Is it safe to unplug the computer while in reset mode? The drive to work is ~40 minutes then it'll be put back on power.
Laptop was working fine but for some reason is now starts up with a blue dialog box asking for an admin or power on password. ¬† After several goes it now gives me a 'system disabled' dialog with the code 71086585.
I have an HP DV 6000T. I just bought a HP Elite M9510f Desktop from HP.com, and I don't have a monitor yet, so I am trying to connect my Desktop VGA to my Laptop VGA in and use my DV6000T as a monitor.
I also have a Sharp TV which I tried using as a monitor but the thing keeps flashing the Power and OPC lights and won't let me see anything.
Anyway I can make my Laptop monitor work with my desktop for the time being?
I am using Dell Vostro 1015 laptop, Windows 7 32 bit OS.I am having problem with external monitor connection. When I connect external monitor to my laptop, it detects external display but doesn't show anything on external monitor and laptop screen also turns black. There is no problem with external monitor but with laptop hardware or something. I tried to connect many external monitors but in vane.

My Dell XPS 1530 screen wont turn on. I push the power button it goes on then off, but I can hear the system starting but no picture. I have removed the battery unplugged everything and tried again to no avail. I have plugged in a separate monitor and still nothing.
I have a HP 15 Notebook PC with no dvd drive recently I was sent the system recovery cds from HP. I dont have an external dvd drive. What i do have is a Toshiba Satelight laptop with Widows 7 and a good dvd drive. Also I have a 500 GB external hard drive. I was thinking maybe I could copy the disks onto the external harddrive with the Toshiba dvd drive. Then attach the external hard drive to my HP 15 Notebook by usb port and install Hp recovey disks from the external hard drive.
i have dell N5010 laptop.it shuts down automatically whenever i restart the windows.i can't even install any new operating system as it turns off automatically.i am sure that it is not due to heat. but after 20 minutes ¬†it becomes normal..my laptop configuration:
I recently took my Compaq Presario C714NR laptop on a road trip, and one day some water spilled on the case without me realizing it, so that the case and laptop were wet when I got to my hotel room. The screen no longer illuminates - I can just barely see the proper windows and images on the screen if there is bright light in the room, but it's nearly invisible. I assume that either the backlight is dead or that a wire/connection to the backlight is loose or shorted.
Several months ago I had to replace the screen when the laptop was dropped and the screen broken (bought a new replace ment screen through eBay, replaced it myself), so the screen has had a bit of a hard life.
My Pavillion dv7-4183cl Notebook turns off on its own with no warning or error messages and then reboots asking for the power on passsord, etc. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. The occurences are more and more frequent as time goes on.
