This sounds like a contact has been lost to the back light of the LCD screen. You could try to open it to see if there is any loose connector. You can get some info from Gateway how to take it apart a bit. To avoid risks you do better to bring it to a technician.

HP pavillion dv9000 has black horizontal lines across screen and looks like a snowy background


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans snowy background it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Does it seem like it booted up all the way except the screen is black? If so try the steps below.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

Hp pavilionn dv6700 screen goes black after a while


If you shine a flashlight on your black screen and look real hard for the icons on the desktop. If you can faintly see them that means your LCD Inverter is bad. You'll have to disassemble the LCD Screen to get to it. In the mean time you can attach another monitor (LCD Flat Screen or the Old style fat CRT) with a VGA cable to the vga port on you laptop. Once you have it connected hit the FN (Function Key) + (F1 thru F12) key that that corresponds to the external display. Hold the FN Key while you hit the Function Key that is for the external display. The key might have the words LCD/CRT on it or it might show a display symbol. That's the key you want to hit while holding down the FN key. This will cause the desktop to display on the external monitor and verify that there is no problem with your Video Card inside the laptop.

Come on then black screen


Hello,
if you hit the power button and it automatically goes to a black screen then either your hard drive has crashed or your operating system is not functioning. You should be able to chose startup repair from the screen that shows up before you get to your computer login/desktop.

Get your original windows cd and put it into cd drive and boot up and it will reinstall the operating system. Youll be able to find all your old files on the c; drive afterwards in a folder callled old windows. If its vista or later you'll have to keep hitting F8 until you get into boot menu and select system restore and restore to factory settings. You will lose all files this way.

My friend gave me an HP G60 and told me that you can log in but it just shows a black screen. After I log in, the whole screen is black, not off, just black with the cursor in the middle. It happens even...


Your friend probably tried to replace 3 .dll files so that you can use custom themes for whatever OS is installed on the computer. The only way to fix this is to recover the computer and restore to factory settings.

When you boot the computer hit escape to access the boot menu. See if there is a recovery manager option, and in there, a restore to factory settings option. (Also, hitting F11 works). If you have no option like this (this is essentially booting without a disk) you'll need a copy of your system restore disks that came with the computer.

The windows start up shows and then it shows the scan bar and then a black screen and nothing else. How do I fix this?


Reboot the computer and keep hitting F8 to enter the recovery screen. Boot into Safe mode, and run system restore (programs-->Accessories-->system tools). Restore your computer to a previous date when it worked properly.

try booting from a cd like the reinstall cd for windows that came with the computer. when starting hit F12 to show 1 time boot menu; select cd drive; hit any key when asked to boot from cd. This will tell you if its a software or hard drive problem.
