Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t Notebook

2 Answers

Screen went almost completely dark, can barely see at all.

The problem is on a Gateway model # MT6730. When we turn the computer on, we can see that the screen is coming on because of the flicker of the light change. If we look hard enough and at the right angle, we can barely see the ''GATEWAY'' logo appear. Other than that, the screen looks blacked out and we cannot see the prompts (even though we know they are there!) We have already tried everything possible from using the function keys up to removing the battery, (which tested fully charged and in good condition) and putting back. my screen is really dark and at the right angle with a light shining on my screen i can see it barely

I had a similar problem with an HP DV2000 notebook computer. Here's the solution for the HP model DV2040TX: Problem identified and FIXED. Not the screen, not the screen power supply. The problem was the micro-switch within the right-hand-side screen hinge. This switch turns off the screen when you close the lid of the notebook - probably to prevent overheating. The switch had failed mechanically (technical term: "fallen to bits"). As a low-cost fix, I have unscrewed the main casing including the screws inside the battery compartment, removed the silver panel covering the speakers, flicked the switch "ON" using a jewellers' screwdriver, and removed the small metal tongue that is operated by a cam on the hinge. Thus, the switch is PERMANENTLY ON. Computer operates normally, shuts down normally using Windows. Just need to be aware not to close the lid without shutting down the computer beforehand. Hope this helps you. All the best, OzKluger

My laptop screen went very dark, I can barely make out whats on the screen but I know its working. What can I do to fix this situation on my gateway p-6860fx pc notebook?


Hi josue fernan...
You need to see if your laptop lcd screen is faulty and/or the lcd inverer is faulty.
1....Test the lcd screen:
Hook your laptop to an outside monitor and then start your laptop normally...if the picture on the external monitor is good, then your lcd screen is bad.
2....Backlight Faulty: If the monitor is still as dark like your lcd screen on the laptop then it could be the backlight that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP SCREEN WENT BLACK AFTER 20 MIN OR MORE


I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more

Gateway laptop will not power on


Sounds like to me, that you do have power going to your computer(other wise your lights wouldnt be on), but that your hard drive is dead.

You can take it to a computer shop and have them replace your hard drive.

Screen went almost completely dark, can barely see at all.


This is a hardware failure of the LCD back-light or a loose connection which requires partial disassembly to verify. Most likely it will require an LCD replacement. If you have an external monitor you can connect it to the video output so that you can see.

L13V36 Dark Screen, picture can be seen in bright light.


If the backlight lights up for a second it's probably fine - It lay odds on the display inverter in the screen. Actually finding parts for anything made by gateway may be difficult, however. They do not sell spare parts. Considering the size of the LCD i bet it would almost exceed the replacement cost of the screen to repair it
