Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Laptop model: HP 2000-379wm Where can I buy the display assembly (the entire top half)? Henges and all. I saved it from slamming on the cement from 2nd floor lol. Instead the entire top half broke.This was within the first months I had it. I bought. A new laptop after that. In the begging of this year. Now that is broken too. Might as well fix both of them now. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Also where I can find directions on how to put it back together.

You should google search online as to instructions/how to guides. Type in "laptop hinges repair guide" and you should get good results.

As for buying hinges, I would search on ebay or online for hinges AFTER finding a good guide (the guide should tell you what you need). The replacement hinges should not be too costly assuming you only need to replace those.

This will probably entail taking your laptop case out, so I would recommend checking into dust cleaning from your laptop/risks just incase dust gets inside when you take off the outer case. But a guide should be more useful than my speculations about your problem/need.
If you still need assistance or more details/directed advice please respond and I'll be happy to help!

I wasnt able to find a manual but keep in mind all the toshiba screw holes should be labeled by length of the screw in MM. That should at least help with the ones on the outside of the case. The ones that hold the motherboard in have arrows next to them.

Hope this helps!

My hp dv5000 screen is blank


Problem can be;

A) Graphics chipset
B) Video Cable
C) screen Inverter
D) LCD screen

Let's diagnose, and find out.

A) Graphics chipset:

To start off with, the Pavilion dv5000 series of Notebook PC's; is NOT known to have a problem with the graphics chipset.
The Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series; does.

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port; on the laptop.
The VGA port is on the Left side of the laptop, and located towards the rear.

This is a general example of a VGA connector (port), and VGA Cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for VGA Cable example.

You can use a CRT type of monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not:

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the SAME time tap once on the F4 key.
The F4 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F4 key.

No display on external VGA monitor, suggests a problem with the graphics chipset.
(Most of the time it is a problem with the Mounting, of graphics chipset TO motherboard. If this proves to be your problem, state in a Comment )

Display on external VGA monitor means the problem is the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.
(screen Inverter or LCD screen)

B) Video Cable:

The Video Cable plugs into the motherboard, in an area under the Switch Cover.

(Left side.
Switch Cover is the plastic cover above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen. Has the Power On Button, LED indicator lights, etc in it)

It then loops by the left Hinge, and goes up into the Display Assembly.
There is a small separate wire that comes from the main Video Cable, and connects to one side of the screen Inverter.
The main part of the Video Cable goes on, to connect to the back of the LCD screen.

Example of Video Cable,

http://www.batterycentury.com/hp-430531-001-cable-p-215726.html

Click on image to enlarge.
The wide connector you see at the top/left, connects to the back of the LCD screen.

The wide connector at the bottom/right, connects to the motherboard.
The single cable (Wire) coming off at the bottom, connects to one side of the screen Inverter.

Just due to normal repeated opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may become pinched.
This leads to it being pulled on, and may also lead to damage of the Video Cable.
(Stretched/Broken wires)

Procedure is to Physically check the connections of the Video Cable. Visual inspection alone will NOT do. You need to physically see if you can plug the connection in tighter.

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
2) Remove the Switch Cover.

[Switch Cover is just that. A Cover. I will give a link to a free Service Manual from HP Support, towards the bottom of this solution ]

Try to plug the Video Cable connection at motherboard, in tighter.
Once done reinstall the Battery, and attach AC adapter. Plug AC adapter into power.
Turn the laptop on.

Still no? Turn laptop off. (Hold down on Power On button)
Remove ALL power again.

This time check the Video Cable connections at screen Inverter, and back of LCD screen.

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
Example,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/447997-001-HP-Pavilion-LCD-Display-Bezel-DV9000-Series-w-Webcam-GENUINE-/170992584210?pt=US_Laptop_Screens_LCD_Panels&hash=item27cff3c612

Service Manual indicates to remove Display Assembly from laptop, in order to remove Display Bezel.
IMHO this = NO.
I think you can remove the Display Bezel, without having to remove the entire Display Assembly.

This video details removing the Display Assembly.
Shows replacing the LCD screen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNyvf4KqeIY

What my concern is with removing the Display Bezel, is the integral Hinge Covers that are a part of it.

I believe the Display Assembly can be tilted far enough back, that the Display Bezel can be removed, and carefully ease the Hinge Covers out/off at the same time.

Why not just remove the Display Assembly?
A whole lot less stuff to reconnect, after you have checked the LCD screen connection of the Video Cable, and screen Inverter connection.

After disconnecting the LCD screen from the Hinge Brackets, you just tilt the LCD screen forward, and check the Video Cable connection.
Then slightly tilt the Display Cover back, so the LCD screen can rest against it, and reinstall power.

Connections are plugged in tighter, and this proves to Not be the problem, go on.
(Don't forget to remove ALL power again)

The Screw Covers are made of synthetic rubber, or plastic.
They are held in place by a type of rubber cement.
I like to use a computer pick, (Much safer than a blade!), and lift up at the base of the Screw Cover.

I also like to GENTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping. (They like to stick to the tool, your fingers, and it seems passing cars. "Oops, dropped one. Where'd it go? Hmmmm)

If you are careful with them you can reuse them. (Doesn't stick anymore? Apply a TINY dab of rubber cement to them, with a toothpick)

Screws removed, I suggest cut a piece of thick construction paper, that just fits the inside edges of the Display Bezel.
Helps prevent scratching the LCD screen, from your fingernails, when you go to flex the Display Bezel, and remove it

The LCD screen is an Assembly of layers. They are held in the factory aligned position, by the metal Screen Frame which surrounds them.

There are screws that hold the Hinge Brackets TO the Screen Frame, and there are screws which when removed, will take the Screen Frame apart.

ONLY remove the necessary screws which hold the Hinge Brackets, TO the Screen Frame!

A) Graphics chipset:

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the back of the laptop.
This is an example of a VGA connector (port), and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for VGA cable example.
You can use a CRT type monitor (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor of it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.

IF not:

There are at least 3 display options;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the F3 key. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over key.
Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, tap once more on the F3 key.

A good display on the external VGA monitor means the graphics chipset is OK.
A white screen on the external VGA monitor, means a problem with the graphics chipset. More than likely the Mounting to motherboard, of the graphics chipset. (BGA surface mount)
If this is the problem post back in a Comment.

A good display on the external VGA monitor, means the problem is the Video Cable; or inside the Display Assembly.
(Screen Inverter or LCD screen)

B) Video Cable:

The Video Cable plugs into the motherboard, in an area under the LED Button Bezel, and right next to the Left HINGE.

[LED Button Bezel is the strip of plastic below the LCD screen, and above the Keyboard. Has LED indicator lights in it, etc ]

It then leads up into the Display Assembly, where a small separate cable connects to one side of the screen Inverter, and the rest of the cable connects to the Back of the LCD screen.

Just due to normal repeated opening, and closing of the laptop; the Video Cable may become pinched.
This allows it to be pulled on, and/or damaged.
(Stretched/broken wires)

ALL power removed, AC adapter (Charger), and Battery; the connections for the Video Cable should be checked.
Motherboard side, screen Inverter connection, and LCD screen side.

Motherboard side connection:
1) Remove the LED Button Bezel.

Two screws (Philips) are removed from the bottom of the laptop, and the LED Button Bezel is CAREFULLY pried up, and off.

Details are in Page 91 in the Service Manual, which I will include at the last of this solution.
I will refer to the page number from now on, for the specific component removal.

2) Remove the Keyboard. Page 93.

I state remove, but do NOT unplug the Keyboard Cable from motherboard connector. Just unfasten the Keyboard, roll LCD screen side towards you, and lay upside down on the Palm Rest Cover.

You MUST physically check the connection for tightness. Try to plug it in tighter.

LCD screen side connection:

Disassembly of the Display Assembly, is not shown in the Service Manual. (At least I couldn't find it)
REMOVAL of Display Assembly is.
So I will guide you step by step. I do not believe the Display Assembly has to be removed, in order to remove the Display Bezel.

The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel.
Looks like this removed,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/COMPAQ-PRESARIO-1700-14-1-LCD-FRONT-COVER-BEZEL-/320720203233?pt=US_Laptop_Screens_LCD_Panels&hash=item4aac69ede1

From what I can see, there are four Philips head screws to remove, from the Display Bezel.
There is a Screw Cover at the Top Left, and Top Right to remove.
The is a Screw Cover at the Bottom Left, and Bottom Right to remove also.

The Screw Covers are made of synthetic rubber, or plastic.
I use a computer pick, and lift up at the base of the Screw Cover, where it meets the Display Bezel.

The Screw Covers are held in place by a type of rubber cement.
If you are careful you may be able to reuse them. If they don't stick again, apply a TINY dab of rubber cement with a toothpick.
I LIGHTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping.

Remove the 4 Philips head screws. (No.1 Philips screwdriver, or No.1 Jewelers Philips screwdriver)

The Display Bezel has TABS going around the exterior perimeter, of the inside edges.
The Display Cover has matching LATCHES that the Tabs snap into.

I suggest cut a piece of thick construction paper, to JUST FIT the inside edges of the Display Bezel, and lay on LCD screen.
(Display Assembly laid as far back as possible)
This will protect the LCD screen from your fingernails.

The bezel is flexible. Come to the inside edge (LCD screen side), of the right side of the Display Bezel.
Lift the edge up with a fingernail, until you can slide a fingertip underneath.
Can't get in? Move over. You are at a Tab/Latch.

Bezel lifted up with one fingertip slid under, move over with the other hand, and slide a fingertip under. Flex the bezel up a little, and move towards the Top.
By now you should hear a Tab/Latch snap loose.
Sounds like you are breaking something.

(Do use CARE! The bezel can be broken, but not if you are gentle, and go slow)
Keep popping the Tabs/Latches loose, going around the Top, then Left side. By the time you come around the Left side, the entire Display Bezel should pop loose.

(At the TOP. You may have to slide the Latch over to the open side, to get the slot in the Display Bezel to clear, if a Latch is used)

Not your laptop, and uses more screws. Just a basic 'hands-on' guide I thought may help,

Dropped my laptop now 1 half of my screen is white and the other half is fine


Hardware damage

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port on the netbook.
The VGA port is on the Left Rear side.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Scroll down a little for the VGA Cable example.
NOTE* Color does Not matter. Usually it is Blue. Can be Black or White in color.

You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type of monitor allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default the display should show on the external monitor.

However there are at LEAST 3 display options available;

A) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
B) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
C) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, (Bottom left corner of Keyboard), and at the SAME time tap once on the F4 key.
(The F4 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)

No display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F4 key.

Display good on the external monitor? Fine. Your graphics chipset is good. Problem lays within the Display Assembly, (LCD screen, Display Cover, etc), or the Video Cable.

Also posted in case you do not repair the netbook, or repair is set for a later date. This way you can at least use the netbook at home.

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

Video Cable:
The video cable attaches to the motherboard, in the upper left area near the left Hinge.
It then leads under the left Hinge, and up into the Display Assembly.

(LCD screen/ Display Cover, Display Bezel, etc. is the Display Assembly)

From there it connects to the back of the LCD screen.
(The Mini 110-3135dx has LED backlighting, and does not use a screen Inverter )

Just due to normal opening, and closing of the laptop, the Display Panel Cable, (HP for Video Cable), can be pulled on.

This means the connection of the Display Panel Cable, at the motherboard side could have been pulled loose, or at the LCD screen side.

It can also damage the tiny wires inside the Display Panel Cable.

From your description, it sounds like the Display Assembly was open, when it landed.
Display Panel Cable connections should be PHYSICALLY, plugged in to ensure the connections are tight.

A visual examination will NOT do.
Connection on the motherboard side AND -> LCD screen side.

If there is visual signs of damage to the Display Panel cable's sheath, also suspect damage to the tiny wires inside the Display Panel Cable. (Stretched/Broken)

Check the connections first. You can leave the laptop partially disassembled, and check, before putting it back together.

If physically checking, by trying to plug the two connections of the cable in, does no good, you have to suspect if the Display Panel Cable may be damaged.

A continuity check with a multimeter set to OHMs, and checking each wire in the cable, is the next step of the diagnosis.
You can take the cable down to the nearest 'Mom and Pop' computer store, and have the tech check it for a few dollars.

Or due to the price of a replacement you may just wish to replace, and see if that was the problem.

The HP part number is HP 607755-001.

HOWEVER, this is supposed to be for a kit that contains 3 cables.
1) LCD Cable (Display Panel Cable)
2) Webcam Cable
3) Power Cable.

[ Power Cable:
The DC Power Jack is the jack on the laptop, that you plug the AC adapter ( Charger ), into.
The DC Power Jack is NOT soldered to the motherboard, with this model.

Instead it is soldered to a cable of wires, and the wires end in a plug.
The plug is unplugged from the motherboard, and the entire assembly is replaced as a unit. (It's a Power Jack Harness, really)

DC Power Jacks get broken. This one will be easy to replace ]

http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/LCD-video-Cable-for-HP-Mini-110-110-1000-110-1100-Laptop-LCD-Cable-6017B0207601-6017B0232102/908032_556440323.html

Check the part number on your Display Panel Cable, and see if it matches up to the one you are going to buy, is the best method however.

Display Panel Cable checks out OK, or you have replaced it, and it doesn't solve the problem, the problem is the LCD screen.

Again, in my searching of the LCD screen replacements, I found they all use LED lighting for your model. (Mini 110-3135dx)
LED backlighting as a rule now, does Not use a screen Inverter.

Could I be wrong, and your laptop does indeed have a screen Inverter?
Only you will know once you open the Display Assembly, and check the Display Panel Cable connection at the back of the LCD screen.

If a screen Inverter is used it will be in the Display Assembly.
A screen Inverter could easily have been damaged in a fall, and a bad screen Inverter COULD show the results you stated.
I say -> COULD.

I believe the Display Panel Cable connection may be loose at the motherboard side, and/or LCD screen side, or it may be damaged.
If not I believe the LCD screen is the problem.

To check the Display Panel Cable on the motherboard side, for this model, you have to remove the Top Cover. (HP for Palm Rest Cover)
This means the Static sensitive hardware components for the laptop, will be exposed.

This means you NEED to wear an ESD wrist strap, once the Top Cover is removed.
BEST method however is to just put it on BEFORE starting to disassemble. This way you do not forget, and have a Static shocked laptop, that is only going to be good enough for a DOORSTOP.

One example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

The alligator clip needs to be connected to a good ground source.
I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

You can also set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

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)

How do I replace a broken screen in my HP model # G61429WM? thank you.


The HP G61-429WM Notebook PC is one of the HP G60 series of Notebook PC's.

I would like you to download (Free) the Service Manual for the HP G60 series Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-compaqhp

On this page go down to the line that starts with HP G50, and click on the blue G60.
You won't see anything happening right away after you click.
This is a PDF file which takes time to download.

[Took 24 seconds for me with a medium speed DSL connection. Entire file downloaded, then the first page popped up ]

After the file has fully downloaded you can save it. Save it to your computer so you can burn it off to CD disk, and then delete it from your computer to save Harddrive space. If you are not aware of how to perform this, and wish to, please state in a Comment.

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign to the left of >
Compaq Presario CQ60 Notebook PC HP G60 Notebook PC.

I would like you to view the Display Assembly in an exploded illustration, so that you can see what the hardware components that you are about to deal with.

Scroll down to the heading > Illustrated parts catalog, and then go down to the sub-heading >
Display assembly components.
Left-click right on the sub-heading Display assembly components.

Number 6 points to the WXGA BrightView display panel that you are going to replace.
You can see there are two cables coming off of the bottom of the display panel.
The one on the left is the Display Panel Cable, the one on the right is the Backlight Cable.

The thin flat plastic frame in the front, that surrounds the Display Panel is the Display Bezel. (1)
The top cover that you see when the laptop (Notebook) is closed, is the Display Enclosure. (9)

The small circuit board at the bottom in the Display Assembly, that you will see when the Display Bezel is removed, is the Display Inverter. (4)
The metal brackets on both sides of the Display Panel are Display Panel Brackets. (5) One on each side.

You have to remove the Display Assembly from the laptop, in order to replace the Display Panel.

Now go back to the Bookmarks menu, and scroll down to the heading > Component Replacement Procedures. Scroll down under this heading to > Display assembly, and click on it.


1) ALL power to the laptop must be removed. AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) You absolutely should buy, and wear an ESD wrist strap when working on a laptop computer.
The cost only averages from $3 to $12.
You don't want to Static shock your computer, and have an expensive doorstop, or paperweight.

Connect the alligator clip to a good ground. I connect to the metal frame of an Empty desktop computer case.
You may not have a similar object around. You can substitute. Use a large metal serving dish, or metal knickknack. Set it on the table you're working on.
(If you have a carpet floor under the table, refrain from swinging your feet across it)

Example of an ESD wrist strap,

http://www.directron.com/1160120.html

Work on a table. A bed or directly on a carpet floor are high areas of Static electricity.

3) Removing the Display Assembly:

A) Remove the wireless antenna cables (2 of them) from the WLAN module
(Page 54)
[ Note* The Black wire connects to MAIN terminal on the WLAN module.
The White wire connects to AUX terminal on the WLAN module.
Just in case you forget, or didn't make notes ]

B) Remove the Keyboard
(Page 57)
[Note* Battery Compartment Cover removed, there are 3 Philips head screws down in the compartment, to remove.
The Keyboard has a cable that connects to the motherboard. It connects to the motherboard with a ZIF connector. {Zero Insertion Force}

The ZIF connector is a two piece affair that slides apart, BUT does NOT come apart in two pieces.
On the plastic connector that you see, are two tabs that are slid forward to release the Keyboard cable.
One tab on each side of the connector.

HP 5550 prints only half of most lines


If you print very much, especially with color, the best solution may be to sell the HP, and get  a Canon MP520,  it's super fast for an inkjet, the brand name Canon ink cartridges are much larger in (ml) ink, it comes with FULL ink cartridges, not starters with little ink.   The color in is in individual cartridges C, Y M (they don't all get used at the same rate) so you will potentiall save lots of money.  A Canon brand Black cartridge for $13 prints about twice as many pages as the HP $30 cartridge ... you do the math.  

Oh yeah,  it's a scanner and fast color&bw copier too.

$129 at walmart (the cost of about 4 HP cartridges)  I am confident that you will never buy another HP printer.
