Question about Computers & Internet
1) Removed graphics card? Sounds like this is an NEC desktop computer, not laptop. 2) Loud pop? Have a look at this Vai,
See if one exploded.
(Those are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors. They do pop. What REALLY makes a loud bang, is if a Solid Polymer Capacitor pops! Explode like a small grenade inside your computer case!
May not even see it anymore. Just a place on the motherboard where it was, and shrapnel from it all over inside the computer case.
When THEY pop, you KNOW it! )

You say you replaced the graphics card?
Either way, this is one of two things. Hardware (a faulty display card) or drivers. If it is an old card, or you did a driver update recently, go to your device manager, and roll back to your previous drivers. if this doesn't solve the problem I recommend getting the latest drivers for your display card, installing them and seeing what happens.
Hope this solves your problem!

it should be problem of graphics card or the graphics chip. if that is
from nvidia, setting up ntune may cause such problem or if you did any
overclocking. may also have a problem of getting hot. try reinstalling
operating system if you feel comfortable of reinstalling OS. it would
solve any driver related issue.
Then check the cooling system of your laptop.
finally think about a change if none works.

Please do not panic....The first thing what we need to do is perform a hard reset...What does Hard Reset mean... Unplug the A/C Adapter Pin from the notebook...Turn the notebook upside down and then remove the battery from the notebook...Turn the notebook in the upright position and then press the power button for 30 seconds without the battery and without the A/C Adapter Pin connected to the notebook... After 30 seconds place the battery in the battery outlet and connect the A/C Adapter pin and restart the notebook...Check if you can see anything on the screen....If you can't see anything on the screen then please perform a forced shutdown by pressing the power button down until all the lights have turned off...Then as soon as you restart the notebook press the F10 key continously on the keyboard...It will take you to the BIOS Screen... Check if you see the screen...If the screen is still blank then don't perform the next step....Click N for No...Then press the F9 key and then select Y as in Yes...again press the F10 Key then press Y and it will boot to the desktop.... still you have the same problem then perform a recovery....If the screen is blank in the BIOS Menu then try connecting an External Monitor...If you cannot see anything on the screen it is a problem with your video card or monitor you will have to contact HP since your fan does not work...If you have any other queries please don't hesitate to contact me and i will help you with the same.....

Testimonial: "Thanx a ton, my system is now working fine... Fantastic work... "
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.

From a power off state, press the Fn key and the power button, this will run the BIST which is a diagnostic on the LCD, if you get screens of solid colors.
From what you describe, I'd suspect the video card which could be the motherboard or memory, try the memory modules one at a time, see if the issue only occurs with one module
