About it being an HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop? Ehhh, giveittome. I will use it.
Looks like I'm going to have to guess since the 'Issue' wasn't stated.
The main problem with the Pavilion dv6700, which is part of the Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is that all the indicator lights come up, but there are no graphics being shown on the LCD screen. The screen is black.
This is due to a graphics chipset problem, caused by a poor cooling design of HP designers.
The graphics chipset (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.
Instead of pins coming off of the bottom of the chipset, as on the older Processors, there are Solder Balls.
The motherboard has tiny copper pads that line up to the solder balls. The graphics chipset is set into place, then heat is used to melt the solder balls, and attach the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
Due to the poor cooling design, the graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections are partially melted. The graphics chip now has a poor contact to the motherboard.

HI there. We'll I hate being the barer of bad news but the HP DV series of laptops have been having a lot of issues with losing video, continually restarting, or just plain do nothing. Hopefully your laptop is still under warranty or someone else knows of a quick fix. I've had to send out the motherboards for 2 of these to get fixed. One of them ended up being the video card on the board. And the other ended up becoming a replacement motherboard.
Here is a link to what other people are having to deal with on their Hp's.
if ur laptop was preinstalled by windows vista
it must have lisence no in bottom of ur laptop
u just note down the serial key , connect ur laptop with internet use activate online put the 25 digit serial no. and enjoy ur laptop working properly
what is the website, or you can't watch all the video online in full screen, if you use themes for your computer for example crytal clear which turn xp into vista it might cause this problems, unistall it.
