Question about HP Pavilion dv5-1000us Notebook PC

1 Answer

I have a fairly new HP dv5-1000US and the screen is almost constantly scrambling. It's almost like a vertical hold issue; kind of hard to describe. After the last few months, its gotten intollerable. You have to play with the monitor to find a sweet spot to make it work for a bit 'til it happens again. I tried plugging the laptop to my tv via HDMI and VGA, both working perfect while the laptop screen was scrambled. This leads me to believe its a loose connection and not a graphics issue. I've also posted about this on HP's support forums finding other with the same issue, but with no solutions.

Common problem and your solution, the connection of external displays, is sometimes the last resort of
any who do not wish to incur more expensive bench time, while the problem is either cured or not.

Sometimes its a thermistor problem [heat problem] and sometimes an intermittent connection problem
while other times the entire display must be replaced.

Laptops are mobile instruments that take a lot of abuse, in normal operating conditions and varying
conditions where temperature and humidity are concerned, and the display is usually the first to go.

Sometimes the problem cures itself for a time, but it is bound to recur.

Consider how important it is that this particular laptop be your only instrument, if so, and do regular
software backups and prepare for the condition that a unit over in the corner of my lab has endured
since it was first purchased by myself in the early 90's, with an external monitor attached, and nowhere
to go........OR send it out to get it fixed.

White screen with black vertical hypen lines???


Hi, you should get an update for your graphics driver and the Bios update. After the updates for the driver. Do a hard reset. To do a hard reset. We need to shutdown the notebook. Remove the battery. Remove the power cord. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Do not expect the turn on. That would be weird. Actually we are trying to reset something internally. After this. Test if the issue goes away. Hope this helps!

I have a hp pavillion ze5385us hard drive making all kinds weird sounds with stop:0x0000008E and vertical lines in center of screen besides a new hard drive can this be fixed andis this worth fixing?


You may have two problems, or just one.

The disk-drive is "failing" -- if it is "misreading" the "wallpaper" picture, then the viewed wallpaper will look to be "corrupted".

Backup all your files, to DVD-writable or USB memory-sticks,
before the disk-drive completely "dies".

Given that you have a "Athlon 64 3800+", it's worth replacing the disk-drive, reinstalling Windows, and restoring your files from your backup.
Much cheaper to replace the disk-drive than to buy a new computer.

Samsung HLP5063W 51 inch DLP is 4 years old. Screen scrambled?


there is a complete section in the tv that translate the different resolutions from the different out side video sources you normally use to the TV native resolution. That area has to be replaced. Is a module repair needed. Don't get scare. now days this kind of repair is normal and has to be included in the repair price to see if is economical to repair.

Problem with printing smoothly


Hi morshi. I found a potential solution to your problem with your 5610 printing vertical lines at HP.com:

Vertical black lines or streaks

It's hard to tell from the rest of your message what other problems you're describing. I did find a troubleshooting page at HP that shows how to address general print quality problems:

Problem with quality of copies

If those links don't solve all of your problems, the Color printing issues page for the 5610 at HP has numerous other solutions:

Color printing issues

I know the name of that last link may seem misleading since you haven't described color printing issues, but the links on that page offer different general print problems and their solutions.

Good luck.
