    None of the keys will bring it back out of the blank screen, only way is to hold in the power button and it will eventually turn off. Battery charge is saying 93%.I dont seem to have those control panel options you mention its running on linux lite which seems pretty basic

    Check in teh control panel, power options to see how the 'running on battery' settings are set. It might be that it's set to shut the monitor off after a few minutes, but it should come back when you press a key. 

    So, I'm thinking it's really your battery. Can you confirm the battery  is at 100% working order?

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

Power related issue certainly, sounds as though the charger may be suspect, but I'd need to know if you were running this on battery also.

The dimming of the screen could be down to a faulty backlight, but I have a feeling thet, given the issues you also decribe, that there is a problem with some of the capacitors on the motherboard, which are causing the power fluctuation. This is not good news if it is the case, as it means the motherboard needs to come out and be checked and maybe have new capacitors.

It could also man that there is a damaged or "dry joint" on one of the circuits that provide power to the laptop

Startup logo appears then it goes to a black screen and blinks


You should try booting into safe mode. Press the F8 key before the windows logo and choose safe mode without network support. If windows loads run a checkdisk by right clicking on the c drive, left click on properties and then select the tools tab. From there you can run a disk test to check for errors. If you get that far then reboot and see if it starts normally. If not try F8 again and try selecting restore the last known working condition. This will restore your settings from the last time it worked. If you can’t get to the F8 screen get back with me and I will try a few more drastic solutions. Good Luck

Hi civic-95-uk ,

Try performing power drain steps on thenotebook:

1) Remove the AC adapter and battery from the notebook.
2) Press the power button and hold it for a minute.
3) Reconnect the AC adapter, battery and try starting the computer.
Even if the issue is same then perform Hard drive self test from BIOS.

1. Turn on the notebook and press F10 immediately. Which will lead you to the BIOS setup screen.

2. Click on Diagnisis and choose hard drive self test. Perform both the short test and long test.

Screen problem with HP DV 9000


I think Your computer C.P.U. power supply unit is not working properly. because these type of problem occur when Power Supply Unit is not working properly.........

So Don't afraid at all just change your c.p.u. power supply unit with new one (it is not costly at all).
