SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv5 laptop screen keeps blacking out.

You have either a broken wire in display ribbon or a loose connection at the motherboard.It probably developed from opening and closing the display.Sometimes the wires will get in a bind at some point and break a wire or pull it loose.You could try and take the front portion in front of the display apart(make sure it is unplugged for a bit)and check for that bad connection.

SOURCE: I have a HP Pavilion tx 1000. Blank screen, LED lights on.

Hello, seems like your sleep mode doesent work as it should. Try to download all windows updates and look for a fix on microsoft sites.
But the best solution is to inactive the sleep mode setting and use the Hibernate options(if you want a fast start) but I suggest that you turn off windows with shutdown, its the safest and best way to have your computer to work properly.

To inactivate sleep mode.
windows xp
go control panel and power options
Change the system standby to never.
also choose power schemes battery, and change the system standby to never.
also the harddisk to never.
This should solve your problem.

To activate Hibernate you need to click on hibernate tab and bock the square.
hibernate= saves all your work to harddrive to restart your computer where you left off.

sleep mode= saves your work to RAM memory=takes a little bit energy.

Advice for when my coputer screen freezes and the esc button doesn't help

Hi Donna,

if everyting is frozen and you cannot do anything with your computer, you can wait a couple minutes to see if it is only working on something in the background that is taking up all its resources... if it does not start responding by itself, and you do not want to wait anymore... push the PC's start button that you use to turn your computer on (not the windows start button) for 8 seconds and it should turn off. NOTE: any changes to data that was open and and not saved will be lost.

Hope that helps

My browser is doing strange things. It won't bring in some pictures from news articles. It doesn't give the buttons on FB that it is supposed to. Newsletters don't come into my email in...

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'

A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

When you boot your PC, press F8 during the boot sequence to bring up the alternate boot menu then choose the option to restore to your last known good configuration.

Did you uninstall Windows Internet Explorer? If not, I also think you may have malware on your PC. Download and install a malware cleaner like Normal Malware Cleaner (If it doesn't work from your computer after restarting) then you will have to download it from another computer onto a USB drive)

If you can boot into Windows normally, run Norman Malware Cleaner right away, it may take a few hours to scan your harddrive for malware. If you can't boot normally, try booting into windows safe-mode by pressing F8 during the boot sequence and chose Safe Mode (without networking) then run Norman Malware Cleaner.

When Norman is done running, click the button on the bottom of the windows to fix the problems then you will most likely need to reboot.

If you need help with this let me know I will be glad to work with you.

Screen not appearing straight away

It could be your LCD backlight giving you problems till it warms up. Turn you computer on and while the monitor is displaying black and the power LED is green shine a flashlight in the lower left hand corner of your screen. Look for the ?Start? button, if your backlight is not working you?ll see a faint ?start? button if you look closely. A 15" LCD monitor is probably not an economically repairable problem unless you have access to really cheap parts and have the skills and tools to do the repair yourself.
