Question about HP Pavilion DV6500T Notebook

2 Answers

Blank Screen Recently my notebook has been acting weird. It doesn't fully turn off if I press restart or shut down so I have to manually turn it off. When I do manually turn it off, it takes forever to come back on ( between 6- 20 times). When i restart it, everything is on in front of computer indicating its on, you can hear it, it just like its in "hibernations". Sometimes when I turn it on I can get to the windows pages where you have to enter which mode you want: safe, normal, etc, other times I make it to the page where I can enter my password but cant go any further, the screen just goes blank. What should I do?

Check manufacture web to find out any BIOS or software or update..can solve this issue first.

If not, for drcphd_2000, you better save all data you want to keep in you HDD and clean re-install OS again if you CAN.

It sounds like damaged OS (virus maybe).
You need to reinstall/recover the operating system.

Laptop not starting properly


follow these steps & ur issue might get resolved(80% chances):
turn off ur notebook-->take out the laptop battery(not the cmos battery)-->disconnect the charger if its connected to the notebook-->now press & hold the power key for atleast 20 seconds, remember that u have to press & hold the power key & dont release the power key till 20 seconds are over--> & ensure that the notebook is not connected to any power source while u r performing this step niether the battery nor the charger--> also there shouldn't be any peripherals connected to the notebook-->once 20 seconds are over & u have released the power key-->connect the battery & the charger back to the notebook & now try to turn on the notebook-->u might not get a blank screen & ur issue might get resolved, turn off ur notebook again & restart to ensure that its not reoccuring....(This whole step is known as power drain & it is done to remove the extra static electricity which sometimes get stored in the notebook & gives a blank screen in return.)

Satellite screen is blank & won't shut down


Don't know why the screen is blank. Toggle the F9 key to make sure you didn't accidentally toogle off the screen.

As far as turning off the power and shutting down the computer, the old stand-by is to take out the battery and then pull the plug. The computer will power down. Replace the battery, replace the plug and then push the start button. You may have to start it up in SAFE mode since the shut down process was not the "normal' process the computer expects to follow.

Blank screen


the power is supposed to stay on when that little plastic button is pressed(screen switch)the screen switch activates hibernate and power saving;if you press the power button a screen will open informing you what programs are currently working.by shutting down you have caused an illegal command.
hopefully if you restart in safemode then shut down correctly and restart every thing should be ok.
