Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

1 Answer

Screen goes cloudy when turned on.

When the laptop is turned on the screen goes to a cloudy gray. It did this a couple times and then worked ok for a couple of days. Now it will only go to this cloudy blank screen. Any ideas?

    I have had this problem also. HP replaced my motherboard and it worked fine for about a month then did the same thing again. I sent it for repairs a second time and when I received it back it wouldn't even turn on. Now I am awaiting its return from a third attempt at fixing it.
    My dv9000 was out of warranty but they are repairing this issue for free. I've looked at some other forums and this seems to be the case with a number of people. There is alot of discussion about motherboard problems and graphics cards. I think your best bet would be to call HP as they would most likely repair yours for free as well, although as I said, Its taken me 3 times to send it to them, and I'm still waiting on this last one.

I too have a dv9000 and the same thing happened to me 1.5 years ago. I had lights but no screen or desktop. The laptop was still under warranty so I sent it back to HP and they replaced the processor at no charge. I believe that they are also replacing parts for out of warranty as well. Also the DV9000, DV6000, DV2000 and the Compaq V2000 have been recalled for problems with the motherboard. The link below is for the recall. Hope this helps. David.

Laptop screen purple psychedelic visual and then screen blank


Sorry to hear that you are having problems with the computer display.

Per your description, I believe the display controller was damaged by the power surge. The laptop may need replacement of the display OR use it with an external display.

Dv9000 screen not working just gray and cloudy


if the problem happens from start up hit f11 and try to repair/recover. also it might be stuck in the wrong mode. once you start up try pressing fn key and f5 at the same time a few minutes after start up. this may help. if not your screen maybe going out. have you done any hardware changes lately or software changes? calling hp if still under warrenty is a great way to get the problem fixed

Sounds like GPU failure. unfortunately its nigh on impossible to replace without replacing the whole board which can be expensive. I saw a few on ebay for around £120.
