Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
I HAD the same problem...if you run your laptop on your battery AND your mains, take the battery out and run it off the mains alone...then see what happens.

Could be a bad screen--did it just happen? Had you noticed any weird behavior prior to it going dark?
I believe your computer does not have a separate video card, so that leaves either the display panel or the inverter (provides power to the display panel) as the culprits.
Is the computer still under warranty? If not, you'll have to make the decision whether to fix it yourself or take it to the shop.
HP has a service manual on it's site to show you how to fix it.

See if you can get into safe mode, hit f8 before it re-boots, if you can the fastest way to fix it is to just do a restore. Start, programs, sccesories, system tools, system restore, take it back to the last time you are sure everything was working correctly, and let it restart. Hopefully that is all that is wrong, either a bad video driver or system file. If this does not work and you still have a blank or black screen, then you will require more assistance. Did you install anything between now and the last time you it was working right? Worse case scemnario you blew the lcd, but let's not go there yet.
