HP Pavillion DV9000 ''Checkered Screen''

My HP laptop boots up fine, but periodically the screen will freeze up and become "checkered". I'm unable to see anything at all. I tried all Function keys, booted in safe mode (problem persists in safe mode), did system restore, updated my video drivers, but nothing is working. Could it be a faulty video card or motherboard issue? Please help!!

    i believe that is a graphics card problem. It doesn't work when it gets to 3D acceleration.

I noticed a bios update for your laptop from the hp site

You can download it here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-64061-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=1842189

It is dated 8 of 2008 and it may or may not address your problem. I would try this first befor I would replace your screen.

Yes it is a hardware problem not a software one perhaps replacing the monitor Im afraid nothing else will suffice...

HP Pavillion dv9000. Intermittent stops. Cannot restart, but will do so after many hours. Screen turns blue with band of torn blue that looks like shutters. System carries out repair check - once worked...


Try booting your computer in safe mode... when your machine starts press F8 and go to Windows. Run for a couple of hours and see if this problem happens.

If you have system restore running, restore back to a point when you didnt have the problem

Connect your laptop up to an external monitor. If you get a picture on the external monitor then you know that your Chip is fine. At that point You will need to replace the screen.

Hello. I have a hp pavillion DV9000, 17" screen. I am having an issue with the computer "freezing" on the windows xp loading screen. When i originally got the laptop (bought used) it worked fine. But now...


Buy a registry cleaner and let it sort things out. If you changed operating systems, there are probably things left on that although they don't cause a conflict, cause a delay while being sorted. I use PA Tools, Registry Mechanic. This is just my personal preference. There are others that you may prefer.

Hp pavillion dv9000 screen


You have an Intel-based laptop (sounds like it).

The failure is due to the vram on the mlb (systemboard). Good news is this is a common failure for the Intel's and is readily fixed, prob is the vram and nVidia chip need to be reflowed using a BGA machine (about the price of a Lexus).

Without a viable repair option, you'll need to replace the mlb. Part# located in the memory bay (middle cover underneath the laptop), and expect to pay upwards of $450 from HP for just the part. *** BEWARE getting this part from a 3rd-party vendor, as they may NOT have reflowed the chips and have the issue resolved
