HP Pavilion Dv7 Display :: Computer Begin Randomly Turning Off
May 27, 2014
I was initially trying to get my DVD to play blu rays. I downloaded a different player and uninstalled the HP mediasmart dvd. This didn't work so I deleted the new player and went into restore system to an earlier time and did so. After I restarted my computer it began randomly turning off and by that I mean the screen. It goes black. I click enter or left clidk the mouse (this seems to prompt it) then after 5 seconds or so the lights on the right side start blinking and the display returns. This has happened before and I forget the solution. Also, my battery died about a month ago so I removed it.

I went to the Control Panel > Systems and Security > Power Options - Choose when to turn off display, for Battery and Plugged in I set to 20 minutes. As long as I'm active with the keyboard or mouse I'm fine but if I'm just reading or studying something on the screen, without any activity, the display will shut down in a minutes time, which is very irritating. Is there something else I need to do to keep my display on for a longer period of time?
I have an HP PAVILION G6-1241EA and I just got a new motherboard and I installed it into my laptop. My laptop turns on but the screen is white. I looked at the wire and it is fine and I tried plugging in some other monitors vga and hdmi but nothing happens. Its been a long time since I've been on the laptop.
I have a HP Pavilion G7-1365dx Notebook and I recently have been having issues with the screen turning white while running Netflix or Sims 3. When the screen goes white I put it in sleep mode and then wake the comupter up again and the screen comes on like normal but if I'm running Netflix or Sims 3 its only a matter of time before it happens again.

My HP Pavilion dvr-1200 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC has a huge problem. It will not display anything other than a set pattern of rotating block colors -it goes from red to blue to green to a shadow sort of grey with vertical lines, each lasting about ten seconds, than repeating over and over. You can hear the computer starting up, and you can get it to the start page by knowing when to press enter and when to scan your fingerprint; this is as far as I can get without seeing. I've had the problem for about two months; the unfortunate thing is after about a week, I decided to hook up a external monitor to it, and got a full picture, with everything but the screen display working great. Unfortunately, in excited haste, I decided it had to be a graphics driver issue, which would just mean an update or a completely new set of drivers. Great. But I accidentally deleted the drivers I had before I uploaded new ones, and the external screen I was using went blank.
I'm having a problem in installing Graphic driver on win 7 64.When I tried to install intel HD graphic driver, I got the following message: "the computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software." and when am trying to install nvidia driver, it say that I have to install intel driver first.
I have a t430s laptop. my laptop seems to randomly switch programs or at least switch off the current one im working on. when im shifting around in excel or typing in an email. it will deselect the program im running and sometimes it will switch back.
I'm encountering having just purchased my laptop. None are dealbreakers and I'm not that put off by them but the fact that I'm not able to figure out a solution bothers me. Primarily, no matter what power setting I'm on or settings I change the display will turn off after 1 minute. Ther other power settings still come into play when they should (computer sleeps etc.) but I'm not able to delay the screen turning off.
I have an HP dv7-6c95dx laptop and the display is out of whack. Black is shown as blue and there are even red dots where some other color should be. LCD screen is a replacement screen and I have already switched out the lcd cable that connects to the lcd screen. When picture is displayed on an alternate screen, the picture is 100% fine. I was thinking the lcd inverter may be busted but I couldn't find a replacement inverter anywhere online for this model.
some blue screen error came and the display is gone. Laptop is turning on but no display, Checked with external monitor, display is showing. after a day, again turned on the laptop the display came and then after sometime again the blue screen error and now the same problem. Ran the LCD BIST Test it passed, done diagnostic check there wad some HDD error no. 0146. the blue screen error is showing video_tdr_error.
I'm having two issues which may or may not be related. My display adapter keeps resetting itself. Sometimes it works and I can continue working.other times I get a screen full of vertical lines and have to reboot. The computer will also not bout or run on battery power. If it's on and I unplug the a.c. adapter it well shut off. How to solve my envy dv7 issues? It's windows 8 that I'm currently running after doing a complete restore yesterday in the hope that if would solve the problem. If didn't.
My xps fails to power on, here's a quick history of the laptop, couple of months ago i decided to try fix my dc jack issue, it would only charge holding cable a certain way, replaced the jack but my soldering wasnt good enough so bought a replacement MB and installed.
this lasted around 2 weeks, laptop shut down after battery had ran down even though connected to ac, looked at transformer on lead and noticed power light was not on, bought replacement charger and connected immediatley light on lead started flashing indicating a short on the mb (i think), tried 2 different chargers same result
bought another mb that was fully tested before shipping, installed, when connecting ac the battery flashes orange 3 times then green and continues this cycle, from what i read think this is only to say the battery is bad.
however the laptop doesnt power up tried it with without battery and did the stat drain technique of holding power button for 60 secs etc.
Basically when switching on the power on light comes on for maybe 3-5 secs and goes off again without any fans etc even begining to boot, if i hold the fn key and power it lights the 3 leds on the left, 9, numlock and i forget the symbol on the other led...
could it be the cpu? though it sounds as if the laptiop isnt even getting to stage of checking for all hardware?
I have a new HP Pavilion 23 Desktop, running windows 8.1. I want to make a recovery set of DVD's, and the instructions tell me to "TURN OFF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET". How do I do this without turning off the wireless router used by other PC's in my house ?
My Dell XPS 15z model laptop display screen is suddenly turning to noising with vertical and horizontal scattered color lines. This is happening every 15 to 30 min and when the mouse cursor is activating after automatically resuming the screen normally.
Whenever I am charging my laptop and using it, the screen lights up to the highest brightness (I keep it pretty low most of the time). This often leads to my mouse freezing, and then I have to shut off my laptop completely. I'm using a HP 2000 Notebook PC, with Windows 8.1 64-bit.
So I've had my laptop for roughly around 9 months and I have started having trouble with it about 2 months after I got it. Although it may not be entirely the laptops fault as I think the person who sold it to me just wanted a quick sale because it does the bare minimum of what I expect it to do.
But lately to my great annoyance the audio has stopped working...for everything. Nothing I've tried has worked and every so often it will at random the sound will be back on again. It's done this on occassion about 5 months after I bought it and I didn't think anything of it but now it's happening everday and is driving me nuts!
I've tried uninstalling the sound and restarting but that doesn't do anything double and triple checked that nothing is on mute, I've used VLC, youtube and Windows Media Player to test it out and still nothing. In the control panel it says the sound is working but it's not. I've also tried putting in headphones and there isn't any sound from the headphones either.
I've updated the BIOS on my t500 Monday. Followed all directions. Now when I power on the t500, it takes 10 minutes before it begins to boot. I see the lights, I hear the fans, but not video for 10 minutes.
I have owned my g6 notebook for five or six years. A few months ago I noticed that if I unplug it from the power adaptor it will work fine awhile then suddenly crash. This happens even with the battery fully charged.
I am considering buying a new battery, but I don't want to waste the money if it is a different problem since the battery seems fine.
So i have a hp pavilon m6 1007tx notebook purchased from thailand....It randomly starts to freeze ... Every thing exept the cursor stops responding for a while... it happens a lot... when i tried to do a hard disk check via hp diagnosis it said that SMART passed and Short SDT Failed... i googled about it and founded it was a hard disk problem... when checked my partition with the OS for error it said that errors were found and asked me to restart and repair so i did ... it did disk check and repair twice till 58 percent and un expectedly rebooted both the times .. now it is repairing disk error..
I'm using a HP Pavilion 17 Notebook PC running on Windows 8 64bit. About a week ago, my sound is randomly disappearing and I have to restart my laptop each time. Then, the sound works like normal, but when I don't use my laptop for some time (while it is still on), and I start a movie or something, the sound doesn't work. When I click the sound bar on the bottem-right corner, there's no green bar indicating sound.I've tried reinstalling sound drivers and reselecting a standard sound device, but nothing seems to work.
Im a ENVY 17-j092nr Notebook PC (windows 8.1) pc user with all drivers and OS updates working fine, nevertheless sometimes im getting an annoying error that makes windows vibrate like crazy, the problem is a little odd to explain, it makes the BAR on explorer.exe folder flick and other "content frames" from several software, on Firefox for instance the upper bar which is orange start flicking useless, or in vlc it flicks the same, and then the worst on the windows log screen, that makes my picture flicks fast from the left to the middle several times per second, making impossible to write any password and its especially annoying when simple pass stop working.
Thing that i tried: -Changing mouse and installing video, display, mouse and other drivers besides updating them. -Using Windows build and external software fix and repair utilities. -Updating OS (Why? dk but i was trying alternatives). -Disconnection electricity when this happens didn't work. -Cleaning fan and avoiding any external particle on mouse laser.
