Try to get a antivirus software. scan the laptop.
since there is boot up problem, you need a antivirus software that will be able to startup on CD or DVD.
one of your friend may have one.

Try hooking it up to an external LCD monitor. If you have the same problem, it's a bad motherboard, video card, or software. You could try reinstalling the video driver or re-imaging your hard drive with your recovery disks. Otherwise, you'll have to try replacing the video card or taking it to a repair shop (for the motherboard).

If you don't have the same problem, there's something wrong with your screen. Try, in the following order:

  • Reseating the video cable on both motherboard and LCD screen
  • Replacing the video cable
  • Replacing the LCD screen

Blotted screen in my hp laptop


1.Locate the problem pixel. Display a true black image on your HP's monitor. You can do this by playing a DVD on your HP laptop, and pausing it on the black screen just before the movie starts. Once you bring up a black image on screen, the stuck or dead pixel should be visible.
2.Try applying direct pressure to the problematic pixel. After you've located it, turn off your laptop. Place a soft cloth or rag over the pixel to avoid damaging your screen. A soft chamois works well. Using the tip of a pen, apply gentle pressure to the pixel. You don't need to press hard, as too much pressure can crack or scratch your screen. While applying pressure, boot up your laptop. This should force the pixel to begin working properly.
3.Tap the pixel. With your Toshiba booted up and an image on the screen, gently tap the pixel with the rounded end of a pen cap. Tap hard just hard enough to see a small white flash on the screen. Tap your HP's screen until the pixel begins working properly.
4.Download a stuck pixel program. Several programs, including JScreenFix, UDPix and Pixel Protector, are available for download and can help fix a malfunctioning pixel. These programs display rapidly changing colors and images on your screen. The flashing colors and images can force the pixel to begin functioning properly.
5.Contact HP. If none of the above methods work, your screen may have a pixel that is truly dead. If that's the case, the only option is to replace the display completely. Contact HP customer support at www.hp.com to find an authorized repair service near you.

Try booting in safe mode and see if you are able to see the display, if so it may be adriver issue or a display setting, look in device manager to make sure there is no yellow asstrick or red question mark on any devices.
It could be your video card, look to see what type you need, AGP, PCI Express or PCI.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

HP Laptop black screen on boot, TV source works


You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Desktop scree showing white bright spots


Hi,

The bright spots which you are seeing my be the failed pixels on the screen.

Once connect the external monitor to the notebook and check the display on the external display.


If you don't have external monitor, then restart the notebook and Press F10 or F2 key to Enter into BIOS. If the screen is same with bright pixels in the BIOS screen, then the it is confirmed the issues is with bad pixels.

If your notebook is under warranty, then HP will arrange for mail-in.

Note: There is Pixel policy from HP, go through thebelow URL:
