Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

External monitor Hi, I have hooked up an external monitor via VGA to my HP pavilion dv6000. Everything runs fine except when I run normal windows, I have no desk top, icons, background, or anything. The only thing that displays is the mouse cursor. Although when I boot in safe mode, everything is displayed, and fully functionable. I understand that it's a display issue, so please bare with my retardedness. Thanx a million.

This does not appear to be a display issue but more of a failure of explorer to load. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del so it brings up task manager. Click file then go to new task and type Explorer and see if all of your icons and such show up. If they do you will want to install a spyware remover such as spybot search and destroy from safer-networking to check for any spyware that is preventing explorer from running. Also check your event viewer in safe mode and see if there are any errors when you boot.

My laptop screen is not coming on it is receiving power but still not coming on


Timothy, post the laptop manufacturer, and the laptop's model number. It's on the bottom of the laptop, Usually in a sticker, or white Service Tag.
This way I can guide you in more detail. Post back in a Comment.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA connector, on the laptop.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Could be on one of the sides of the laptop, or the back of the laptop.
You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least three display options available:
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
Which one is it? Dunno. You didn't state what laptop manufacturer, and model number.

It is one of the F1 through F12 keys. Most of the time the F4, or F5, or F7 key. Has a monitor symbol on it, and sometimes a side arrow.

No display on external monitor still?
Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

If the display still does not show on the external VGA monitor, you have a bad graphics chipset on the motherboard. Usually means motherboard replacement.
(There are problems with HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series, in this area. There are other model series of laptops also, not just HP. There is a solution besides motherboard replacement)

C) IF, the display shows on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

I can help you find it, just need the laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
Post back in a Comment.

Keyboard lights up screen stays black....after inserting recovery disk screen still remains black...


Would like you to attach an external monitor for a diagnoses.

A VGA monitor.
Can be a CRT monitor that resembles a small TV, or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of the monitor to the laptop's VGA connector.

[For the HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC, the VGA connector is on the Left side at the Rear. Second port from the rear. 15 pins.
3 rows of 5]

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT style allow it to warm up.
3) Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not, press, and hold down on the FN key,
(Second key from the left, on the Bottom row on the Keyboard),
and tap on the F4 key.
(Top of Keyboard towards the left)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap on the F4 key.

There are 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

IF, the display shows up on the external monitor, and if it is OK, the problem lies in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

More on that in a moment.

IF, the display does Not show up on the external monitor, or if it is garbled, the graphics chipset is bad.

HOWEVER, there is a problem with the graphics chipset, for the dv6000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's.
More specifically it isn't actually the graphics chipset itself, but the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
More on this in a moment.

External VGA monitor shows a good display;
Video Cable:
The video cable is checked for apparent damage first, and at the same time, see if it's connectors are tightly plugged in.

On one end, the video cable is plugged into the motherboard.

(ALL power removed, AC adapter { Charger} and Battery, the Switch Cover is removed, and the Keyboard, far enough to lay it back out of the way. Keyboard Cable still attached to motherboard. The Display Cable is the one to the Far left, right under the left side of the LCD screen. The cable next to it, to the immediate right, is the Microphone Cable )

The video cable routed from the connection on the motherboard, up under the left Hinge Cover, and into the Display Assembly, where it then attaches to the Back of the LCD screen.

THIS connection must be checked also.

{ Just gave advice similar to this earlier. The asker's problem turned out to be a loose video cable connection, on the back of the LCD screen }

Examine the sheath of the video cable. See if there are signs of damage. If so the tiny wires inside the cable could be damaged.
Apparent damage or not, you may want to remove the video cable, and perform a continuity check with a multimeter. (Ohm's. Check each wire in the cable)

Video Cable connections prove to be tight, video cable continuity check proves video cable is OK, move on to the screen Inverter.

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

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Backlight is a CCFL for an HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC.
[It is 2mm Wide, and 334mm Long. Or a little thicker than 1/16th inch Wide, and a little over 13 inches Long ]

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

A screen Inverter is used to convert power (Electricity) from the laptop, FOR the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Example of a screen Inverter for a Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC,

http://www.nylaptopparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=560

The thin plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen, and is in front of the LCD screen, (Resembles a picture frame), is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen area.

External VGA monitor does NOT show a good display, it is a graphics chipset mounting issue, more to follow.

My HP Pavillion zt1170 has a very very very faint monitor but i can hook up a vga cable to my desk top monitor and see it fine. What is wrong?


the lamp on the monitor is going bad or the power inverter (which gives power to the monitor). You have to take it to a repair shop. We cant tell you without actually looking at your laptop. But it's definetely a hardware issue, not software. I hope this helps

you could have accidently changed to external monitor with Fn +F(the number is 8 on my comp but could be 5 on yours-check keys on top of the keyboard it has a picture rectangle / little TV), anyways to check that attach external monitor to your laptop(must have a VGA cable) if you have a picture on external monitor try Fn + F(depends on what you have on ur keyboard) it should bring you a window with choices to choose laptop LCD or external LCD choose 1st one .
hope that is it.

I have a Hewlet Parkard desk top that bleeps


dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 recall I have an out of warranty dv9000 and haven't had wireless for months. I just discovered HP issued a recall for the wireless and other problems with several different Pavilion and Presario models. For the wireless problem with the dv9000 they are replacing the motherboard on all notebooks in or out of warranty. I was wondering if anyone has had the repair done under the recall and how it turned out? I'm also wondering if HP is still cosmetically trashing notebooks when they are sent in for repair?
Here is the link for the recall:

Hi, I have an HP pavillion dv6000 and the problem is that it doesn't start, i have just bought a new ram, but it still doesnt start, can you please help thanks


These Laptops have an inherent problem with the Video chip. If the computer is powering on but you are not seeing a video on the screen, try using an external monitor on the laptop vga port. If you can get a picture on the external monitor, you have an issue with your screen, and it needs changing. If you cannot get a picture on the external monitor, your video chip is bad and the laptop is finished. Reflowing the graphic chip is usually useless.

Good Luck

N5350 will not power up with power adapter


Are you certain the panel didn't simply give out? Try attaching an external monitor via the rgb/vga connector. If everything id running, then thst is the likely culprit.
