Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook
I've had my HP notebook for 17months now. On the first 2 weeks I've had it, I had the whole unit replaced because of a busted cardreader. On the 11th month, just one month left in my one-year warranty, I had to turn the whole unit again for replacement of the motherboard because the dreaded blue screen appeared with a message saying "fatal problem, seek technical support". A week later I went back to pick it up, they said they have the motherboard replaced already and has examined and tested everything but when I turn it on in the store to check it myself, the LCD went kaput and split into 8 screens. So back to their service center again and they replaced it with new motherboard (or so they told me) and a new LCD which did look new, there was hair stuck in it and it was gone. The only odd thing I noticed was the lcd hinge (you know like a door hinge) was a little bit more tighter. Now 5 months later, with the new year celebration and all, for a couple of times, I've worked in the garden with inconsiderate neighbors, lighting their firecrackers without warning in front of our house. I think either the very tight hinge or the very loud sound of the firecracker contributed to the now busted LCD. On the first day it didn't turn on, what I'd do was drain the battery, because I thought then the battery was the problem but then all lights that are supposed to be on are on except for the the lcd. Then when I put in the charger or the power source after the battery has drained, the lcd would then turn on. I would repeat this ritual for 3 days until it wouldn't turn on at all. It has been 9 days now that I haven't used it. Oh I even tried hooking it up with my desktop's LCD, a samsung 19 inch. Although I'm not sure if I connected it right but still the samsung LCD wouldn't turn on with the HP notebook. So now I'm thinking maybe the problem is with the software.
So dilemma is, I don't want to turn it in yet to the HP people, because even with my expired warranty (which even the service center wouldn't even try to help me on how to extend it) they might just declare that the LCD needs to be replaced and basically I don't trust them anymore. The 17 months had been hell for me. So is there anything else I could do than praying? If only I could sell it back to them half the price, I'd do it.
Doesnt seem to be the screen by the sound of things...first of all splitting into 8 screens is not motherboard problem neither is blue screen..
if you have bad sectors on hd screen wont come on...
if have faulty mem cards wont come on(can be simple as remove mem and reseat properly)
if you close pc when downloading or updating(especially auto upgrade)or close before an installation finnished will all result in screen error(fatal exception)
if bios interrupted during flash will result same...
missing sys files will prevent os loading but youll see something on screen...
try to reinstall os because it sounds like a software issue you may want to reset bios before this...there is software (free) around to do this
