    It's a relatively modern laptop, so I suspect (not knowing what exactly is wrong with it) that is is worth getting fixed. Most components now are modular and can be easily replaced - often without any real expert knowledge.

    What exactly has gone wrong with it?

Not knowing what your problem is, no one can tell youif it's worth getting fixed. As for "Most components now are modular and can be easily replaced - often without any real expert knowledge", if you don't know what the problem is, you shouldn't be considering easily replacing components.

Go to the HP website and look up troubleshooting and see if you can find your problem, and the possible solution.

Hp g5000 seems dead

HP laptops are well known for motherboard problems, but for the sake of ! the power adapter should be checked, if okay! remove main battery and power up, if nothing! this should be assessed by a professional to decide on the next step.

Hp g5000 sreen does not light up as usal, i can see a the start up when i shine a torch at the sreen, what do i need to do to get working.

An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional source of light.
A Backlight is used as the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to the Fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

The LCD screen is a composite of layers, surrounded by a thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.
To one side of the LCD screen layers, and under the frame is usually where the Backlight is mounted.
[Note* Two Backlights are used in some models]

Replacing a Backlight is more labor intensive than replacing an Inverter.
Due to this, and the cost, the LCD screen itself is replaced as a unit most of the time, when it comes to Backlight replacement.

Example of a replacement LCD screen for the HP G5000 series of Notebook PC's,

[Note* Stating HP G5000 is just stating the model series. When buying replacement parts the EXACT Model Number should be used. This information is located on the bottom of the laptop, in a white Service Tag.

When replacing an LCD screen, the model number of the replacement LCD screen should be matched to the existing LCD screen's Model Number.
Inverters and LCD screens are matched together. Make sure you get the correct part]

An Inverter is used to provide power from the laptop to the LCD screen, and to the Backlight.

Note* 90 Percent of the time the problem is a bad Inverter.

Example of an Inverter for an HP G5000 series notebook PC,

The LCD screen, Top Cover, Display Bezel, Inverter, Backlight, and various screws, make up the Display Assembly.
The Display Bezel made of plastic surrounding the LCD screen, and in front of the LCD screen is removable.
Behind it is easy access to the Inverter.

The Inverter is approximately 4 inches long, and the width of a No.1 pencil.
Usually located at the bottom of the LCD screen, and right behind the Bezel.

This article shows replacing an Inverter and LCD screen on a Compaq Presario v2000 series Notebook PC,

This pictorial guide is not for the HP G5000 series Notebook PC, but the models are very similar when it comes to Inverter replacement.
The above link is to show you what is involved.

Please post questions in a Comment.

My hp g6000 wont boot not even the bios menu comes up or the hp start screen

I have a g5000 laptop with the same problem. After a long research and testing the problem was that the motherboard and graphics card are dead and no replacement is cost worthy. Sorry to tell you but unless you can find someone to replace your nvidia card you cant do much.Hope that helped!

Maybe this will help. There are quite a few models to choose from. Download the drivers you need and save them to your desktop in a new folder. After you download the ones you need, go back to the folder and open/unzip/run the fdrivers to begin installation.

When you press F10 to enter the set up nothing happens, is that correct, and what does the beep sound like? Also, does it beep if you don't press anything, and after the initial screen with the F10 message, what does it do?
