My hp laptop powers on with a dark screen and then restarts

Check that your AC adaptor is functioning correctly by substituting it with a known good one. (Flickering of the LED light on the charger indicates that there is a fault with the laptop where power is being "spat back").
Check the output voltage using a multimeter and see if the voltage remains steady at the jack of the charger terminals (inner pin and outer plug)
If the charger is functioning ok, check the tightness of the plug in the DC socket, any looseness, or sparking indicates a DC socket that needs replacing.
If this is ok, the problem will most likely lie in the power capacitors on the motherboard and these will need checked by a qualified technician.

Geting lines in my screen or black till in move back

Sounds like the ribbon cable from the mother board to the display has become loose or broken. You will need to take the laptop down to the motherboard to check this connection. If it is tight, you will need to replace the ribbon cable. Some models this is possible, others it is not.

Hope this helps.

Vertical lines on a screen

If the image is ok on an external monitor it
Could be a failing screen, or loose VGA cable
Remove the screen bezel and the hinges that hold the screen onto the lid, check that the vga cable is tight in the connector, check also that the inverter cable is secure and the lead from the motherboard to the other end of the inverter cable is tight.

Check if possible that the other end of the vga cable that goes to the motherboard has not worked loose.

If these are tight, the screen is beginning to fail and will need replacing
If you get the same problem on another external monitor, the problem lies in the graphics chip, sometimes , this is a sign of overheating, you should strip the laptop and clean out the fan and heatsink assembly

The screen is floppy on my Compaq Presario CQ70 and needs tightening can you inform me on how I can resolve this please ?

Check the screen mounting screws on the back of the laptop near the hinges, make sure they are tight.
If these screws ar tight and the screen is loose then the hinges need to be replaces because there are no adjustments available to tighten them.
Replacement hinges may be available from one of these WEB sites.

My hp dv4 have vertical colored lines on my lcd screen about 1.5 inch width on the rights side of the lcd screen.. can this be fix? how?

If you are lucky, this may be down to a loose vga cable connection on the back of the screen, or at the motherboard.

First eliminate the possibility that t may be graphics chip related by seeing if the laptop will work on an external monitor without the banding you describe. If it will, you will need to remove the laptop screen and see if the connection there is tight. Check also at the motherboard end (remove keyboard and switch panel)

If it is tight, then suspect that the screen is beginning to fail, look for a replacement.

If the monitor shows a similar pattern, the issue is with the graphics chip ( common problem with HP laptops)

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Hp pavilion tx1000 screen its loose

Even after getting the laptop apart you won't be able to tighten the hinges because of the way they're manufactured.

You'll have to buy replacement hinges.

They go for about $30 on ebay.

Here's what they look like:

You should be able to take the laptop apart yourself. If you ask for a service manual here, someone might be able to dig one up for you.

Best of Luck!
