Hi civic-95-uk ,

Try performing power drain steps on thenotebook:

1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook.
2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute.
3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery and try starting the computer.
Even if the issue is same then perform Hard drive self test from BIOS.

1. Turn on the notebook and press F10 immediately. Which will lead you to the BIOS setup screen.

2. Click on Diagnisis and choose hard drive self test. Perform both the short test and long test.

Pc wont boot up


Try hook up an external monitor (from a desktop pc) to the laptop.
This is just to determine whether the laptop screen is the problem or not.
Then try also,,tapping the F2 key repeatedly as the Laptop is starting up,,will it now enter the Bios on the Screen.
Report back here when you have checked these things.

When i shut my laptop the tv i use as my monitor goes blank.


Right click the power icon in the system tray (should look like a little plug with a lightning bolt on it.)  Click on "adjust power properties."  Click on the "advanced" tab, then where it says, "When I close the lid of my portable computer," select "Do Nothing."

My hp pavilion dv6000 laptop does not turn on, the blue buttons light up, but the screen stays off


Try it without the rechargable battery connected sometimes the battery shorts and causes problems.
Do you have FN[function] keys at the left side. touch FN key with something else and see if screen comes back.Sometimes you can turn off the screen to send it to the back connected monitor.Connect (extra if you have) an external monitor to the back (vga) connector.If that shows, then you have to ""flutzz" with the FN(function) & F1-F12 keys

Hi i have hp dv6000 my laptop is on but the screen is blank some time they came up and then went out again please help.


Turn the computer ON. Take a flashlight and shine it at an angle into the screen. If you still see the image on the screen most likely the inverter in the screen has went out. I would suggest taking the laptop to the local authorized repair station.

Laptop Monitor keeps going blank or near blank. When the monitor is moved into a different position it may turn back on or it may not.


Sounds like the back light of the screen is playing up or there is a loose wire. Either way the screen will stop completely and will not keep working. The best thing to do is try and buy a new back light for laptop screen and replace it, or take it to a professional to look at and repair for you. It's not a simply fix. Thanks igi_57!

Greetings,

Lot of possible cause: memory, motherboard, accessories/peripherals connected, bios wrong parameter.

You can try disconnecting/removing everything possible.
