When I turn on my laptop I get no display

My hp laptop display would not work. I took it in for service and was told it was the motherboard. I was also told it had to be sent out to be put in a oven to be repaired and was charged $225. one week after geting it back the display did not work again was told this time the mouse pad was shorting out the motherboard. I was charged $95. do not want this to happen again

Does any of this sound right

Thanks for your help

The second time this happened, you shouldn't have been charged, purely for the reason that, if they repaired your motherboard, then it was probably something they did, or didn't do. You should really find out exactly what was wrong, and what they replaced or repaired. Make sure you take note of what they say, some companies will try and make you feel dumb, and that they know more than you. Then contact Hewlett Packard's technical team themselves. Tell them your concerns, and see what they say. Unfortunately, being from the UK, I don't know what your rights are regarding Trading Standards.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

You cannot replace the motherboard with a different one because laptop motherboards are not inter-changeable between models.
You need to purchase a new laptop, but you can remove the hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive case then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and file transfers.

Hi, i have an HP Pavilion dv2000 & it had recent motherboard problems, so I had it repaired in the HP Service Center. They replaced the motherboard & so far, everything was okay until yesterday....


Yes, the GPU is faulty. either replace the systemboard or reflow the GPU. Second option is cheaper and you can do it yourself. There's a link for a diy guide to fix that issue.

does your screen look like this?

Compaq Presario F500 Monitor Problem


You need to determine whether the fault is the video/motherboard or the LCD screen on your laptop.

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

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.
Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.

My dv2000 boots but screen is split into like 8 parts (each part showing same thing) there are some wavy lines..sometimes its ok ...i try to load windows vista recovery (from partition) - it crashes on...


I have the same problem that my screen splits into 6 but occasionally screen comes normally. I gave to HP service center and they told me to change my mother board. I was worrying about the cost of Mother Board bcoz it costs 1/3 of my purchased rate and also my warranty was expired just 2 months before.

So, I tried some way to fix this temporarily, while screen comes normally, I went to Safe Mode, it works fine. So, I got an idea, it works in less hardware access, I think, how it works when removing NVIDIA display driver. So, I removed it. Now, it works fine but there is a difference in display but that doesnt matter while comparing previous.

I'm still searching permanent solution. I'm planning to change the Hardware of NVIDIA card. Lets see,

Notebook cannot power on


get multiple advice from different technicians... changing motherboard in a laptop is not cost effective. check your warranty and send it back to manufacturer.

do this first... disconnect all power source --take out the battery from your laptop, disconnect the power cable... leave it for 5 minutes or longer and reconnect the power source and turn on the laptop. "if this works, don't go back to that technician that says change the motherboard"

if this doesn't work and and you get the same recommendation to change the motherboard from other technician... it is more cost effective to get a new laptop. if you replace the motherboard, you will have to pay the shipping, service and the parts = new laptop (new warranty)
