Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook
The power lights go on, but the screen is black. How can I get it to turn on?
This might be the symptom of a known issue with the DV2000 series of HP laptops, caused by a failure in the video portion of the motherboard. If so, then it might qualify for a special free repair even if you're beyond the one-year standard warranty period.
My son's computer was showing a black screen, even while it appeared otherwise to be starting normally. HP replaced the motherboard and he got it back yesterday after a 3 day turnaround. I was amazed.
Of course I can't say for sure that your problem is the same, but take a look at the following page and then call HP to see if it qualifies. Have the computer up and running when you call, as they'll ask you to do some tests while you're on the phone. Good luck!
