Question about HP Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Laptop HP Pavillion dv1000 will not turn on at all. Screen flickered recently (moving screen to diffenent positions overcame this temporarily) popping off to standby mode quite often, and tempremental on-off button for quite a while, now will not turn on at all. AC power fine, light comes on laptop when connected, then goes off after about a minute after on-button fails to work. I've removed and reseated the RAM (two boards) and still nothing.

Have you tried connecting an external monitor to your laptop? just a thought... once you have connected leads turn laptop and monitor on and on start up you must press an f key. On my laptop this is F5 or F6 you can usually see a picture of 2 screens on the F button. holding this down will open the laptop on the other screen.

sorry just a thought

    just read your post again so the last answer probably didnt seem like much help but my old acer laptop stoped turning on, my screen was smashed and it did suddenly start working again plugged into an external monitor, check the actual connectors on the battery charger connections too they can sometimes bend .,



    hey i am a complete novice so you have probably already tried all of my suggestions.

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.

I have an hp pavillion laptop that has not worked in a few months first the screen was black when you turned it on. now i can see the screen somewhat but not 100% its dim please help


Have you tried connecting an external monitor? If an external monitor works good, then you'll have to replace your lcd screen. You may be able to replace it yourself. You can purchase a service manual for you laptop online through ebay. If not then it's going to be your internal display adapter and that will require a trip to the shop.

Hp pavillion dv9000 lcd screen changes colour when moved


The inverter is to change the volts from the laptop to the Backlight. This wont have anything to do with it.
Im more than certian it will be the LCD cable. Proberly loose or torn at where the lid closes.
Hope this helps.

Projector only displays desktop wall paper not laptop images


stop the dual monitor moded and it will project what is on the Desktop screen

for this right click on desktop -> properties -> (on the window) Settings here take away the check box for "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor" and you can have what ever is displayed on your desktop on the screen

but if you keep the the existing setup then you can just drag the windows to the right or left edges and it will move on to the screen and you can use the projector image as an extended monitor, this will be useful when you want to have your presentation and your background work/ Document seperate from the viewing audience, try it you may like it

cheers
