8 screens + blue screen + hangs

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} hp pavilion dv2503tx
it started when i was watching downloaded tv series.
the graphics became blurry then stopped playing.
i had to restart it after it hang.
upon restart, 8 screens identical screens split down in the middle appeared. i tried rebooting, restoring to a previous date.
at first this method worked. i noticed that when more processes are being ran, it starts to hang and blue screen appears.

i'm running harddrive self test now. if i dont fix it now, then i'd have to bring it to the hp service center later...

isn't this something we can complain to hp? if this problem persists in this model, shouldn't it be considered factory defect? i mean, i know of two other people who have the same laptop and the same thing happened to them. one of my officemates went back to the store where she bought her laptop from. the store said this model has a really faulty motherboard and most people who bought this model from them, eventually experienced the same problem.

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

The laptop is a dv6700 HP Pavillion. What steps should I take to solve this issue.


About it being an HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop?
Ehhh, giveittome. I will use it.

Looks like I'm going to have to guess since the 'Issue' wasn't stated.

The main problem with the Pavilion dv6700, which is part of the Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's, is that all the indicator lights come up, but there are no graphics being shown on the LCD screen.
The screen is black.

This is due to a graphics chipset problem, caused by a poor cooling design of HP designers.

The graphics chipset (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit), is mounted to the motherboard in a BGA surface mount.

Instead of pins coming off of the bottom of the chipset, as on the older Processors, there are Solder Balls.

The motherboard has tiny copper pads that line up to the solder balls.
The graphics chipset is set into place, then heat is used to melt the solder balls, and attach the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

Due to the poor cooling design, the graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections are partially melted.
The graphics chip now has a poor contact to the motherboard.

My pavilion dv6700 won't turn on. The lights come on then the fan starts only to all shut off and then continue the same process.


HI there. We'll I hate being the barer of bad news but the HP DV series of laptops have been having a lot of issues with losing video, continually restarting, or just plain do nothing. Hopefully your laptop is still under warranty or someone else knows of a quick fix. I've had to send out the motherboards for 2 of these to get fixed. One of them ended up being the video card on the board. And the other ended up becoming a replacement motherboard.

Here is a link to what other people are having to deal with on their Hp's.

My HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook drops its FPS drastically when hot


Hello,if this is the first time that happens its OK but if every time you play or you stressed the CPU shutdowns or restarts the you should take it to a repair shop.You can download a program to monitor the temperatures to see if its a CPU or graphic cards overheating.As i can see your graphic card is low-mid range and on-board so don't stress it, putting high resolutions or high details and make it overheating and stress more your CPU.
