    Exact same problem. Cannot bring the dv2000 out of sleep mode. Allthe lights are one. Have tried several things including removingpower, battery, stay alive button battery, removing ram and harddrive. Left in the state for 24 hours, no joy. Eventually bycontinually pushing the power button and cycling the unit on/off I gotit restarted. I then completely reloaded all software (new build)installed a different virus scan (Webroot). Worked fine for a few daysand the problem is back. Pretty sure this is either a hardware(motherboard) or bios issue. Also the internal wireless modem gave itup when the PC was just out of warranty.

    Have the exact same problem - from rarely getting out of sleep mode to no wireless - Base on other comments from other sites, it sounds like hardware. -- 5 months out of warranty - I have not yet found a mother board, - don't know it that would fix it.

Have the same proble could be 3 problems.
1) LID switch in the dv2000 it is under the keyboard, undo the 3 screws under the battery this will loosen your keyboard, under the F7-F8 key there is a wire just under the silver cover. Remove this careful and turn your computer back on. This is a problem that is reoccurring for HP
2) It could be also the inverter board this is under the plastic screen cover on the right hand site, if this is broke you have to replace it, its not a big job but it’s a precision job and does not always work because it could be also the 3rd problem
3) Final it could be the CCFL tube this is better fixed professional because its hard to do or you replace the screen altogether.

In most cases its one of these 3 problems and 2 of them can be fixed by yourself
Good luck. Also lookup on google LID switch this will give you more information

First I will suggest you to Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including black screen
After that restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode.
If you able to start in safe mode then update your graphic drivers from the manufacture site of your laptop
Let me know if it helps you.
Use system utility tool like RegInOut to remove unwanted files , fix registry and windows errors which causing black screen

Unable to factory restore Hp pavilion dv2910US


Hello
hit the f11 key repeatedly during boot
this should bring a hp restore wizard.

If not you will either have to purchase a disk matching your operating system, if you need one let me know.

Or if you want to knife and fork and hope it works then you can download one of the internet.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3747188

Click on Manuals in the right side list.
Scroll down, click on -
HP Pavilion dv2500 and dv2700 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
(Took 10 seconds just now using a medium speed DSL connection )

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an addtional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.
The HP Pavilion dv2910us Notebook PC uses a CCFL.

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

(Usually 2mm Wide, by, close to the height of the LCD screen)

A screen Inverter converts the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.

The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and mounted to the bottom area of the LCD screen.

{The Display Bezel is the thin piece of plastic in Front of the LCD screen, and surrounds the LCD screen, in front }

Example of a Pavilion dv2910us screen Inverter,

http://www.batterycentury.com/hp-pavilion-dv2910us-inverter-p-177051.html

Wires in a cable with a connector on the end, plug into the screen Inverter, and come out of the screen Inverter.
The connectors are different so there is no mixing them up.

A) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

B) Follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Work on a table. Not on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor.
If the table is on a carpeted floor, refrain from swinging your feet across it.

If you do not have an ESD wrist strap available, (Average cost $3 to $5),
at least place a large metallic object on the table (Unpainted), and touch it before, and occasionally during working on the laptop.

Perhaps a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), or large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

C) Now in the service manual, go to the Bookmarks menu on the left side, click on the + sign to the left of -
Removal and replacement procedures

Click on the + sign next to - Component replacement procedures
Scroll the bar down, click right ON - Display assembly

{You can reduce, or increase the view size.
The ( + ) Zoom In icon increases the view size.
The ( - ) Zoom Out icon decreases the view size }

In the instructions anything that is in blue, can be clicked on to take you to more in-depth info, on that subject.

You are looking to see for one, if the Video Cable connections have come loose.
It doesn't take much, and just viewing with the human eye may not discern if it is loose.

The procedure is to physically check, to make sure the connections are tight.
The Video Cable plugs into the motherboard, then routes under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.
There it connects to the Back of the LCD screen.

{HP:
Video Cable = Display Panel Cable.
LCD screen = Display Panel }

You have to remove;
1) All power,
2) Switch Cover (Page 79 in the page number box, at the top of the PDF file)
3) Keyboard (Page 75)

,and then you have access to the Video Cable connector, on the motherboard side.

You have to remove:
1) All power
2) Switch Cover
3) Keyboard
4) Display Assembly,

and remove the Display Panel far enough from the Display Enclosure, to physically make sure the Display Panel Cable is plugged in tightly.

Opening, and closing the laptop may have pinched the Display Panel Cable (Video Cable), and pulled one, or both connections loose.

Since the Display Panel Cable is also routed under the left Hinge, it can be pinched enough to damage it.
See if there are obvious signs of damage to the sheath of the cable.

Have someone with a multimeter set to Ohms, check the continuity of the wires, in the Display Panel Cable.

{Average cost for an inexpensive multimeter to perform this test, is around $8 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example. Analog or digital is fine. I prefer Analog }

Have an assistant gently wiggle the cable while checking for continuity, to see if there is an intermittent break.
Indicates a broken wire in the Display Panel Cable.

Cable checks out replace the screen Inverter.

[ The test for a screen Inverter uses a sensitive multimeter. Not something everyone has laying around. Most consumers who do not have this tool, replace the screen Inverter,

http://www.fonerbooks.com/test.htm

The low cost, and ease of access also helps ]

Display Panel Cable, and screen Inverter check out?
Problem is CCFL, or LCD screen.

On my hp pavilion dv2910us my screen freezes and has horizontal lines going across screen, i have to bend the screen around until it becomes clear. any idea whats causing this???


hi boorad1284 
sorry to hear this but this can be two things: this can be your LCD screen causing the prob or it can be an operating system issue (software). to be sure, back up your files then reinstall your OS (operating system). if this is only a software/driver issue, reinstallation of OS will do the trick but if not, it means that this is already your LCD screen or cable causing it.
goodluck!! hope this helps

My dv2910us starts every morning at 3AM it is doing this awaking alone from the hibernating mode, where I always assumed that no energy is drained or software running. If it inside my bag it may overheat...


Locate power icon on your task bar on the left below screen. tap it one choose to Home/Desktop. or you can right click on it to adjust power scheme. disable hibernating.
