SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv900 problem

Issues related to Motherboard may cause booting issues.

HP needs the Noebook to be available at any Service Center to examin it.

If the Notebook was purchased in US, they will send you a box through FedEx so that you can ship your Notebook in that.
Notebook will be returned within 7 to 9 days after repairs.

Unfortunately, if you are currently out of US, then the situation is critical as not all the service centers will be able to repair the Notebooks avaiable in all locations.

SOURCE: My HP pavilion g7 laptop's screen is gone dark,

Primer first, jhb4954;

An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.

A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL or a series of LED lights.

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

(Average size of a CCFL is 2mm Thick, and Length is almost as long as the LCD screen is high. { 2mm is a little more than 1/16th of an Inch.
.0625 = 1/16th of an Inch. .0787 = 2mm )

A screen Inverter is used to convert the power (Electricity) from the laptop, for the LCD screen, and Backlight.

A small circuit board approximately 3/8ths of an Inch in Height, and 3 Inches in Length. (Varies as to screen Inverter model )

Located behind the Display Panel Bezel, and mounted at the bottom of the LCD screen.
Usually mounted with one Philips head screw, and has two cables going to it.
Video Cable, and cable to the Backlight.

(Plastic thin frame in front of LCD screen, and resembles a picture frame, is the Display Panel Bezel. HP's name.
The LCD screen is the Display Panel )

Primer over.

The HP Pavilion G7's series came out with EITHER using
CCFL, OR LED lights for backlighting.
Just depends on what model number it is.

[ HP = Manufacturer
Pavilion = Model Line
G7 = Model Series

In the white Service Tag located on the bottom of the laptop, is P/N.
This = Product Number
HP's model number ]

1) NOT all LED backlit LCD screens use a screen Inverter.
2) a screen Inverter is the problem 90 PERCENT OF THE TIME.

Which leads us to several options;

Option 1:
Your Pavilion G7 LCD screen uses a CCFL for backlighting.
It also uses an Inverter. (screen Inverter)

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.

A relatively inexpensive part. It is also MUCH more easily accessed, than trying to replace the Backlight. (And much cheaper than replacing the LCD screen)

Test a screen Inverter? Requires a sensitive multimeter. Read - fairly expensive,

Because of the low cost, ease of accessing to replace, and lack of proper test equipment, most users at the consumer level just replace the screen Inverter.

A parts changer type of repair granted, but when viewing the alternatives this may be the only viable solution.

[ Note*
An LCD screen and a screen Inverter are a MATCHED UNIT.
When replacing the screen Inverter make SURE you get the proper one]

Screen Inverter replacement doesn't repair the problem?
Then the decision is made whether to attempt replacing;

A) The CCFL, (Or CCFL's { 2 }, if the model uses it ),
B) Replacing the LCD screen as a unit.

The CCFL is a Fluorescent bulb. Means it has Mercury inside.
It is also VERY thin in Width. Means it can be broken easily.
It is also more difficult to access;

An LCD screen is composed of layers. This can be seen in the first link I posted.
These layers are kept together in a specific pattern, by the Screen Frame. (Left to Right, Top to Bottom, as well as the layer's order )

A thin metal frame which surrounds the LCD layers.

[ Two styles of Screen Frame used, to my knowledge;

1) Two piece. One Top part, and one Bottom part. Resembles two picture frames put together, but they each have a lip like a cake pan.
One slips inside the other.
Small countersunk head screws hold the two parts together.

2) Four piece.
Top, Bottom, and two Side pieces. Uses countersunk head screws also)

The CCFL is usually on one side, and right under one of the Screen Frame frame rails, (Unless a dual CCFL model. One on each side ),

{ Note* Sometimes a CCFL is not offered separately from the LCD screen, by looking up it up with the laptop model number. In this case a match is made, by using any identifying manufacturer product codes on the bulb ]

Option 2:
Your Pavilion G7 uses an LCD screen with LED backlighting,
AND it uses a screen Inverter.

Suggest replace the Inverter first.

Then if this does not fix the problem, replace the expensive LCD screen.

Option 3:
Your Pavilion G7 uses an LCD screen with LED backlighting. Does Not use a screen Inverter.
Replace the LCD screen is the only option.

Several HP Pavilion G7 LCD screen models. Some with CCFL, some with LED,

This is HP Support > HP Pavilion G7-1075DX Notebook PC > Manuals download page,

Left-click on the first file listed, for a free Service Manual, for the
HP Pavilion G7 series of Notebook PC's.

(I just picked a model number to access the Service Manual, for the entire model series. Just from my experience )

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

(Took 10 seconds using medium speed DSL connection, just now)

If you wish post the Product Number in a Comment, and I will guide you in replacing.

Removing back cover of hp dv 6915nr

Back Cover?

1) Display Cover: The plastic cover that is on the opposite side of the LCD screen. Sometimes referred to as Top Cover.

Display Assembly is removed from laptop first, then LCD screen assembly is removed from the Display Cover.

2) Base Enclosure: The plastic bottom part of the notebook.
A laptop is disassembled from the Top down to the Bottom.

The bottom 'cover' (Base Enclosure) is not removed first. It is last.

3) There is no back cover per se. Half of the cover for the back (Bottom half) is part of the Base Enclosure. The top half is part of the Palm Rest.

(The back has the Vent in it)

[Use the dv6700 service manual. Go down to the subheading HP Pavilion dm1 (dm1 is in blue)
Scroll to the right, click on dv6700. Note that it is a PDF file, and may take up to 30 seconds, before you see the first page come up ]

What is it you are trying to do? What hardware component are you trying to access?

Post back in a Comment.


Display assembly is removed. Palm Rest Cover is removed, and so on.

How to re-install bluetooth on my hp pavilion dm1?

Since you only put dm1, go to this page and pick exactly which one of the 107 different models of dm1 you own and click on it. At the Drivers page, select the proper operating system (xp/vista/w7) you are using and you'll be shifted to the complete list of drivers for your computer.

You want to download the "bluetooth stack/software,driver (" for your laptop and install it.

Display and Boot problem with HP Pavilion DV2125NR

It is normal for the bottom to get hot. The fan should keep it cool enough to run, but it sounds like perhaps your fan is not working very well anymore and should be replaced.

Does the computer act up at all when cool? If not, the first thing I would try is replacing the fan and examining the fan and heatsink assembly for proper installation, perhaps replace the heatsink compound with some Arctic Silver while you have it open.
