Hi there
DSUB is VGA, has your TV got a VGA port on the back? if so and you know what the source the channel is then you will need a male to male VGA lead and a mini stereo jack to left and right male phono jacks for the audio, the DSUB or VGA does not carry audio through it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Hp pavillon dv2000 line on computer

Find out if the problem is the graphics chipset, or the LCD screen.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, plug a VGA monitor into the VGA port on the Pavilion dv2000 series of Notebook PC.

1) The VGA port is on the back of the laptop. Looking at the back of the laptop, it is the second port from the Left.

Example of a VGA connector, (On laptop it is a Port), and a VGA cable,

The VGA monitor can be a CRT, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

The VGA monitor will now just be referred to as External Monitor.

Monitor plugged into the laptop, turn the monitor on. Wait a few minutes if it is a CRT monitor.
Turn the laptop on.

The external monitor should automatically show the graphics of the laptop.

If not press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom row of Keyboard, second key from the Left. The Windows key is to the right of it ), AND at the same time tap once on the F4 key.

If graphics do Not show up on the external monitor, press, and hold down on the Fn key, and tap the F4 key once more.

[ Your laptop has at least three functions for this Hotkey. (F4)
{Also known as Display Toggle-Over key}

1) Laptop internal display Only.

2) Laptop internal display, and external display. (In this case, a monitor. A Projector can be connected here also)

3) External (VGA) monitor Only ]

A) Does the external monitor have this line going through it also?
Yes? Problem is with graphics chipset.

B) No? Problem is with screen Inverter, or LCD screen.

An LCD screen cannot produce light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

A screen Inverter is a small circuit board that converts the electricity from the laptop, for the Backlight, and LCD screen.
(Too broad a statement. There are some laptops that their LCD screen, does not receive power through the Inverter. Their power is derived from the Video Cable only )

90 PERCENT of the time the fault is the Inverter

This is an example of a screen inverter, for an HP Pavilion dv2000 series of Notebook PC,

Click on the image to enlarge. (Size is approximately 1/2 inch tall, by 4 inches long)
Make a mental note of the price. This is an average price. You may also find a better price.

This is an example of a replacement LCD screen,

A1) Without a sensitive multimeter, (Read expensive), you do not have a way to test the Inverter.
IMHO I would replace the screen Inverter, and see if this repairs the problem.

If it does not, then an LCD screen replacement is next.

B1) If the line is on the external monitor, you have a graphics chipset problem.

With most laptops a motherboard replacement is the easiest option, however it is the MOST expensive option.

It has been found that the HP Pavilion dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, have a graphics chipset problem.

It isn't the graphics chipset, per se, it is the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard, AND the inefficient cooling for the graphics chipset.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The graphics chipset is the GPU. Graphics Processing Unit,

Use GPU-Z to find out what exact GPU your laptop has.

I do know that it uses Intel GMA 950 for graphics, which is usually paired up with one of Intel's Core2 mobile chipsets,

The graphics chipset is mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array.

To explain a BGA surface mount, let me compare it to the Intel Pentium 4 processors, that used a Socket 478 processor socket.

The bottom of the Processor has contact pins. 478 of them.
The Socket 478 processor socket has 478 socket holes.

With a BGA surface mount, there are no contact pins, and no socket holes.

Solder Balls on the bottom of the graphics chipset, take the place of the contact pins.
Copper Pads on the motherboard take the place of the socket holes.

When installed by the factory, the graphics chipset is set into place on the motherboard, so that the Solder Balls are lined up with the Copper Pads.
The chipset is heated to a specific temperature, for a specified length, and the Solder Balls melt.

The solders the chipset to the Copper Pads. Solders it to the motherboard.
IF, the graphics chipset repeatedly overheats, the solder connections are partially melted, and this makes a bad contact. (Contacts)

A video I found that explains the above in more depth,

What are the appropriate steps to connect an external monitor to an HP Pavillion DV2000? When I try, nothing appears on the external screen... Thanks, RF

One of the function keys has a small monitor screen icon. Press that key while holding the Fn key, and you will enable the external monitor connector. These laptops don't automatically sense when you've connected an external monitor. On some models, the first press enables the external monitor and shuts off the laptop screen. If that happens, press the keys again and the laptop screen will come back on.

What is problem in hp pavilion dv2000 no display


the problem is either from your screen bulb, screen inverter or the screen it self. One of these is the cause of the problem. You need identify exactly where the fault is coming from so that you can go for replacement of the bad part.

If you are not a tech, then I would advice that you take it to a tech man to help you figure out what is faulty so that necessary replacement can be done.

Good luck.

Connect HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop to Panasonic Viera 42'' plasma

If you get your wallpaper to show on your TV, then you should be almost there.

  • Try to right-click somewhere in the desktop, choose "Properties" and go to the Settings tab. (Now you should be able to see both monitors.)
  • Click on the "Identify" tab to see which one is your TV.
  • See if "Extend my Windows Desktop onto this monitor" is checked.
  • Try to find a resolution that works with your TV by changing the values for the screen resolution.
