The other tech is right he is trying to diagnose your problem, another thing turn the laptop over and if necessary remove any panels so you have a clear view of the fan then press the power button, if the fan does not move it will cause your cpu to overheat and shutdown, you will need to replace the fan. i had this exact problem yesterday and the fan was the problem

    so you decided to rate this negatively already, are we done already?

    Turn the laptop over, take the charger and battery out, find the memory cover, most cases it has 2 screws on it, open it up, you should see 1-2 ram sticks inside depends on model.

    Take both out, close the cover, don't screw it in yet. turn the laptop over, plug in the ac power and turn it on, what happens do you get beeps now? you shouldn't get picture, because you don't have any ram in there.

    wait for a minute and unplug / turn it off.

    Turn it over and place the other ram module back into its slot, don't put the other in yet. close the cover again and try turning it on now, what happens?

    do you get picture now?

SOURCE: won't come on, tried taking out battery and that

The problem could be with your screen. It looks like the led light of your screen is dead you could follow up this solution.

I have had this same problem with a HP DV2000 and the problem is not the contrast light. What it is, is that the laptop thinks that the screen is been shut down that is why the light does not come on. The best way to solve this is to remove your keyboard first.

You can remove the keyboard by removing exactly 7 screws from your laptop back, there are 5 screws located under your battery and other two that are in the location of your RAM'S.

Just open them up and then you will notice that the key board pops out abit then just simply take it up and then just below the keyboard, on the same line where HP brand logo is on your machine there are two small clip types of pind, that you can remove and put back.
There is a clip that is hidden abit under the metal plate, so just try and remove that clip from its place using a needle or any long and thin object.

That will make the laptop not have the problem. But once you remove that the laptop constantly will think that the screen is open even if you close it. then after like a week or two you can put it back and all shall be fine if not then just remove it and keep it out.

You can then set your power options to shut down the screen light every 2 minutes or something like that so as to avoid the backlight being switched on all the time.

Hope this solves your problem.

When I turn on my HP Pavillion DV2000, the lights are displayed, however the screen is blank, is there something that can be done??


Remove the AC power jack and then the battery. Hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds, that will drain any residual power from the laptop.

Then just plug in AC power only and try to boot the laptop up. If it boots let it load Windows and then shut it down. Remove the AC power jack and then re-insert the battery. Then try to boot the laptop up.

If it boots up you all good.

If this does not work please post back.

Good luck.

I have a pavillion dv2000.when i swich on it says only someone with a certain number or an administrator can unlock computer

Looks like this is locked and in hibernation / suspend rather than properly off. If you hold in the power button until it powers off, next time it should boot into windows or a normal logon screen. good luck!!

I m using ur model HP PAVILLION DV2000

Sounds like you have a driver issue.

Start up in safe mode (press the F8 button about once per second after you power on), and select safe mode with networking.

When you get into windows, use windows update to download all updates for both software and hardware (update will till you that there are optional updates available, download these as well),

Hopefully when all that has completed you should be able to run your computer as normal. If not there may be a problem with the memory installed on the laptop.

I think the problem is with your LCD screen.

Try connecting it to external monitor and see whether a display will come up on the external monitor. If this the case, update your video driver. If you had updated video driver but still no display I suspected your LCD screen is faulty and needs to be replace.

(if machine is under warrantly, no need to pay any fee for replacement).

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up

I have the HP pavilioin dv2000 too. I encountered the same problem. I did everything i though possible (reseated the battery, reseated the ram) and everytime i hit the power button, i would get all the blue lights on but no screen. And it is non responsive. Fed up i held the power key down for no less than 2 minutes and ta-da the computer responds by turning off. After i pressed the power button again, it started normally.

Hope it helps. Take care.
