Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook

HP Pavillion 9925nr LCP monitor turns black

When I turn on my laptop the screen remains black but I could hear the start-up sound. I have to use a small penlight to light up its surface for me to see the icon to where I could enter my password. Thereafter, the laptop will run the way it is but still no visible display on the screen (remains black). On the other hand, when I connect an external monitor to it, everything are functioning properly. I could see the BIOS start-up and manage everything with the aid of external monitor. When I try to run its built-in web cam, it also gives me a good cam display (there's power on the webcam).

This unit was just given to me as gift to by my brother..Please help me!

Check screen brightness.
On keyboard is normally activated by combined FN + Fx keys (F9 or F10).
Check your keytops and/or your user manual.
Using this feature you should be able to restore a standard contrast on your screen.
If it isn't working the only alternative is external monitor.

Power up computer...hear the windows jingle but the screen is grey


Try connecting an external monitor and see if that gives you video - if that works, your laptop screen may have gone bad and need replacing. If it does not work, check that you are not running in too dark a screen or the wrong mode. I dont know specifically which HP key code changes this but there should be pictures on your "F" keys to indicate this. Remember to push down the"Fn" key at the same time.

My hp pavillion tx1320us is powering up but the screen remains black


try to turn off the laptop. Remove the cables and battery on the pc. Press and hold the power button for 8 secs. Then reinsert the cables and battery on the pc. Turn on the laptop and check if the screen still black. If it is, make sure that the monitor power light is on. Otherwise, there might be a problem on the video card. If you know how to reseat a video card, go for it and here is the step by step, instructions:

Turn off the laptop, remove the cables and battery, remove the screws at the bottom part 4 corner sides, remove the hard drive, remove the optical drive, then remove the video card and reinsert it. Then reinsert the other peripherals in descending order.

If still did not work, call HP and have your video card replaced...

My hp Pavillion DV6000 laptop starts up fine and after a few minutes the screen turns black. I can still see the desktop image in the background but barely. If I reboot the screen looks normal again but...


Well are 2 reasons for this behaviour of your notebook...first it can be an issue with the graphics card installed on the motheboard or its an issue with the Monitor cable which is connected between the motherboard and the LCD.

Following are the steps that you can try to resolve the problem:

At first we need to check whether its a hardware problem or not.

1.Restart the computer and tap on the F10 key for a while which would take us to the BIOS SET UP UTILITY...

2.Now we need to wait for sometime in this screen so that we can check the status of the screen whether the screen goes dim or it remains normal..

3.If the screen remains normal for around 10 minutes then its not a problem with the cable,

4.Now we need to get back to the windows screen and try installing the graphics driver for the notebook.

Let me provide you a couple of drivers for the notebook.

I am providing you the drivers assuming Windows Vista installed on the system

if you have an ATI card installed, the install the below mentioned driver:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&swItem=ob-60201-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

if you have an NVIDIA card install the below mentioned driver:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&swItem=vc-77961-1&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

or you can install the drivers directly from the manufacturers website..


Hope this works.

Regards
KEN

Connect your laptop up to an external monitor. If you get a picture on the external monitor then you know that your Chip is fine. At that point You will need to replace the screen.

My HP Pavillion laptop turns on but the screen doesn't show.


You could be expierencing a problem with your monitor screen. try this.... connect another monitor screen to the VGA port of your laptop. Now try booting up. Look for and push Fn + the key that turns on a secondary display. if the monitor screen comes on. you need
another laptop monitor. At least you can use your laptop with the second monitor for now.
