Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario computer will not boot up unless I hook it up to a separate monitor. When I do this it runs perfectly and the laptop screen even comes on. Any ideas?

    This is not the problem. I have tried that. When I boot it up with the external monitor it reverts to the laptop monitor as soon as it starts up.

Sounds like you just need to select the mode your display is in .

You should see a colored "Fn" key on your keyboard which when used in conjunction with the appropriate key will switch from external to laptop monitor.

    Thats interesting.
    On my laptop (IBM Thinkpad) if you go into the BIOS there is an option to choose what the bootup display is.
    Try looking for a similar option in your BIOS , or just reset it to defaults and see if that changes anything.

Hp presario f600 boots and runs but screen wont cut on


Well if you are sure the computer is running, then you could have a bad inverter, take a flashlight and shine it on the screen, if you see the icons and computer booting, then you have a bad inverter, go on amazon and order another LCD. also if you have a desk top monitor, connect the monitor to your laptop, then boot up your laptop, hold down the "FN" (function) button and press "F4", you should see everything on your desktop monitor. Good luck.

Presario 2500 screen wont come on but computer and lites are working


If you can't see any obvious damage, like a cracked screen, sometimes the module that illuminates the LCD screen just goes out. If it has a VGA port and you can get a computer monitor, plug the monitor in and see if it will boot up and run. It is possible that you might have the computer set up to boot to an external screen, but you would still see the Windows and HP logos at the boot up. If you see NOTHING at all, then try an external monitor. If that works, you may replace your screen...or not.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video


Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.


Let me know if this helps.

I have a compaq presario computer using a compaq monitor. I have a Gateway HX2000 LCD flat screen monitor (year 2009) that I want to us instead of my compaq monitor. I have disconnected the compaq monitor...


I'm guessing the different monitors are different sizes? The only thing a driver for a monitor will do will tell the computer the max resolution that the monitor will be able to go up to. However most 90% of monitors can use the built in windows driver without issues. Your best bet is going to be to change the resolution on the monitor. To do this you can either hook up the old monitor, lower the resolution, and then plug in the other monitor. Or you can boot the computer into VGA low resolution mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up and selecting that option. From there you can lower the resolution, and then put it at something more desirable with the new monitor.
The other possibility being your Gateway monitor is actually malfunctioning and you just happened to hook up a bad monitor.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

Hp laptop dv2110 will not com on


If you have a monitor in your house, hook it up to the laptop then press the FN+F5 I belive (each laptop varies) to enable the other screen (the monitor) see if the laptop shows up on that screen. If it does then we know we have a display issue.
If this does not work, flip the laptop over, and reseat the ram, and battery, then try to boot up.
