The screen is black on my hp pavilion laptop


if the system is running and hard drive is operating is is possible that the Video Card that is part of the Motherboard is Bad. THis is because both the laptop screen and external monitor are black.
You can take the laptop to a local shop but often the cost of repair is greater than the cost to replace.
if a shop will evaluate for free go there.
best case you have a bad stick of ram, worst case processor or Video section of mother board is bad. many other possibilities could be the cause.

i can not understand your post
try to be more clear
does local LT screen work ok
does using a known directly connected screen (VGA)
on the LT you must turn on external screen using the fn hot key
the the external works,. do so, now
if both internal and external fail the LT is bad, guess, bad GPU chip
if only external fails, try a known working external screen
if that works your external is bad.
the docking is last, and if only it fails, then ITS BAD.

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.

HP Pavilion zd7000 lap top Power on issues


I just built/repaired one of these the other day. My son uses it now. Motherboards are notorious for going out. However you need to give more description to your problem. You just say it has issues but that doesnt really tell me anything. If you turn it on and get no beeps and no screen and everything seems dead except for the power light then it needs the system board replaced. But if you see the hard drive light running like normal with nothing on the screen then try it with an external monitor. If the external monitor works then the screen has died but the motherboard video card components are good. If you still got nothing then the board is bad and will need replaced.
I'm sorry it is almost always bad news on these.

Hi,
The problem is because of a bad inverter cable or bad cfl tube of the LCD . Haddrive is unrealted to the problem you are facing . You can connect an external monitor to the laptop and press Fn+F8 key to toggle the display on it . If the external monitor shows the video . You would have to get the LCD services otherwise its the video card causing the problem

Thanks for using fixya

HP G6000 laptop, screen completely green. top and bottom taskbars are black/ red flickering.


Seem like your video is going bad on the motherboard or your LCD screen. This is how you can determine which is going bad:
- Connect a monitor to the output and toggle Fn+F4 about 2-3 times or until you see video on both screens.
--If you have that same picture on the monitor then its the internal video....new motherboard needed.
--If you don't have that problem on the monitor then its with your LCD screen and it will need to be replaced.

IF THIS HELPS PLEASE VOTE.....GOOD LUCK AND THANKS..

 Hello jarkk, I believe your problem is with your backlight inverter. the hard drive should be installed for this process of checking it on an external monitor. with the hard drive removed it will not boot to the operating system. with the drive in, use the external monitor. if the monitor works when plugged into the external monitor plug, this will eliminate a bad video card. if the screen is still black on the laptop screen, replace your backlight inverter. the last case cenario is to make sure your backlights are not burnt out.

Hp pavilion ze4930us notebook pc is dead


Hi danielb59,

Let do troubleshooting together.

First) if possible, connect a external monitor to your laptop. If you get a picture on the external monitor, then this means your pc is ok but the monitor screen on the laptop has gone bad.

Second) if the monitor screen on the laptop has gone bad, most likely the inverter component on the screen went bad (inverter provide back light). The inverter is replaceable but I do not know what they run. If your laptop is still under warranty, then please allow the manufacturer to fix it.

Those are your choices. Hopefully it helps and good luck.
