I have an HP Pavilion dv2000. Lately I've been having an issue with the screen. It will flicker or wave, and eventually go black. The screen is still physically working (The backlight is still on.) If I start the computer in safe mode I do not have this problem. Could it be due to overheating? Any suggestions?

check in the bios by taping F10
if the screen is flickering in the bios then it is a hardware issue
if it does not flicker in the bios then it is not a hardware issue
try updating the display driver
if it does not work then needs to perform a recovery on the computer
I am sure that the issue is related to the cable that connects to the LCD Display or the LCD Backlight.
There should be some connection shortage because of which the LCD flickers few times as stated by dan231.
I Recommend you to get the Notebook examined as soon as possible before something really goes wrong...
Hi, i noticed that when I unplugged my HP the screen stopped flickering. I then re-plugged in the power, when to the Nvidia control settings, to PowerMizer, and changed 'ac outlet' to Maximum Power Saving.
Not the world's greatest solution, but hey, working laptop now.
