Question about HP Pavilion dv9000t Notebook

1 Answer

Screen fade to white

Ive had my Hp Pavilion dv900 for about 2 years and after the first i needed to replace the video card due to scrambled, pixelated graphics. Now a year after that after i go to turn it on from being shut down or restarted, and the screen goes from black to a pixelated grayish-white. I'm not sure if its starting windows or anything at all, i don't even see the HP logo. Then ill leave it off for a while and it will start up fine, but to a screen with an option to run a repair mode. It seemed to fix it, but when restarted went to a blue screen saying something about the video drivers timing out. It then attempted to restart again but only to the fading white. I know it's not overheating because it's happened after being left off all night. It's also different from the first time, because there are no colors at all, just black to white.

Firstly, May be the drivers are corrupted, reinstall the drivers again (uninstall>restart>install drivers and restart).

If it doesnt solve yet then change the slot, put it in other slot.

My HP Pavilion dv9000 Laptop powers up but screen stays black. Keyboard lights up and you can here the computer running.

Connect it to an external monitor to see if it shows video.If it does the display panel needs to be replaced.If it doesn't show video the video card is most likely malfunctioning.The HP dv series are bad about having video problems due to heat and depleted thermal grease.Hopefully it will show video on the external monitor.

Video is scrambled

It's probably something to do with your video card. The card could need replaced or there could be a bent pin in the plug. Check for the bent pins first.
