Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Screen problem When I open the screen on my Compaq Presario up past a 45 degree angle, the screen acts up and distorts the colors. All whites turn pink and are distorted. If I keep the screen opened to less than a 45 degree angle, I can rotate the computer in any direction and the screen stays normal.The notebook is 1 1/2 years old and this problem just started today without warning. Any suggestions?

    Thank you very much!!! The loose connection was the problem. Unfortunately, now I have another problem. While putting the screen back together I shorted out something in that little rectangular circuit board beneath the bottom of the screen (The one with the thin guage pink and white wires) trying to put the tiny screw back in. It looks like the light on the screen is now blown. Is this repairable or even worth repairing?

Hey that board you shorted out, its called an INVERTER BOARD. they are reasonably expensive.

Perhaps your connections on the inside have come loose. It may warrant you take it to a specialist to check it over before it gets any worse. Some other person was on here some time ago who had a similar problem and all it was is the switch in the lid. Apparently they tinkered with it by just kept on pushing it back and forwards as if to continue to open it and it came right they tell me that they hardly used it thats why!.

    Anything is repairable? All you need to do is examine it a wire may have broken away. Sooo I cant imagine you had tried to put it back together while it was still switch on??????.

    Go backwards to where you first thought the wires were loose Im picking if you found it you will figure this one out. Check to see everything is stable by that I mean screwed tight wires all joined where it was loose double check its not gotten loose else where. You know sometimes technicians find faults this way especially when you first start out thats where the fun is and when you find it its like that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Goodluck and come back and tell me how you fared!!!!!

Compaq Presario CQ50 notebook screen goes fuzzy when opened to a certain angle (about 90 degrees). Wires being pinched at the hinges? If so how do I go about repairing this?

it sounds like you've damaged the cable that goes from your graphincs card to your screen or when you move it to 90degrees it's disconnecting. it's usually caused by someone opening the laptop and not putting the cable back in the right place, or loose screws in your hinges or a broke hinge. there are plently of videos showing how to open it up. follow one of them and make sure your wires are sitting in the right place, you don't have loose screws and the hinges aren't broken.

Presario c769us screen scrambles

It's the lcd video cable. The wires are damaged so when you move it up and down at some point they touch and at other times they don't.

Replace the cable and you're good to go.

Monitor problems

You may try CTRL-ALT- and one of the four arrow keys. Usually CTRL-ALT-DOWN ARROW solves most of them, but it depends on which way the image is rotated.

Use the following steps to remove a memory or continuity module:

Turn off the computer.

Windows 98 or 2000: Click Start , Shut Down , and then Shut Down

Windows XP: Start and then Turn Off .

Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and remove the battery.

From the bottom of the computer, remove the screw holding the RAM cover, and remove the cover.


Remove the board by pulling it away from the connector at a
45-degree angle.


Align the keyed (notched) edge of the board with the keyed area in the expansion slot. Insert the board into the slot at a 45-degree angle until it is seated.

Push the front edge of the board down until the retention clips snap into place. Then replace the cover

Probably a loose cable from the inverter to the LCD inside the screen bezel. Here are <a href=",compaq,diagram1.shtml">disassembly instructions</a>

The inverter is the 2 wire cable at the bottom right. check it for any breaks as well.
