The laptop is a dv6700 HP Pavillion. What steps should I take to solve this issue.

About it being an HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop?
Ehhh, giveittome. I will use it.

Looks like I'm going to have to guess since the 'Issue' wasn't stated.

The main problem with the Pavilion dv6700, which is part of the Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is that all the indicator lights come up, but there are no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.
The screen is black.

This is due to a graphics chipset problem, caused by a poor cooling design of HP designers.

The graphics chipset (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.

Instead of pins coming off of the bottom of the chipset, as on the older Processors, there are Solder Balls.

The motherboard has tiny copper pads that line up to the solder balls.
The graphics chipset is set into place, then heat is used to melt the solder balls, and attach the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

Due to the poor cooling design, the graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections are partially melted.
The graphics chip now has a poor contact to the motherboard.

My pavillion dv6700 starts up then goes black

Hi, Sorry to hear about this. I presume you can't log in in "Safe mode" (pressing the key "F8" while booting) and then to a system restore (available under Accessories -> System tools -> System restore) Nor you have the Windows Recovery Console available to you , nor an original Microsoft Windows CD/DVD (not a HP one) to use to try to do a soft recovery. If I'm correct on the points above, then sadly at this stage it seems you have a fundamental issue with your machine. I recommend that you take out the recovery disks you got with your machine. Inserting the main recovery disk and then rebooting the PC will launch a recovery console by HP. This will make a last attempt to fix your PC or, if all fails, return your PC to the "brand new state". Bare in mind that going to the full restore option will delete ALL the files currently your PC.. hence leaving it, just as the day your bough it. If you don;t have a back up of all your files, you'll need either: Create a boot disk that allows you to connect an external hard drive to copy all your data or ask a local mate or PC shop to extract your drive and copy teh data before you do a full recovery.
Once again, sorry to hear about your issue but I'm sure worst case, you'll succeed at getting your machine working again (even if it means a factory reset).

HP Pavillion DV6700 - the screen is black the whole time

try to log in safe mode then run system restore on your last good restor point. check if you see software distribution pack in every restore point then restore it on the date before you had the software distribution pack.
