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.

Hp dv6000 laptop screen blurry


Hello Al,



I hate to inform you but the graphics chip in these laptops are known for doing this. HP is aware of that. Every time some one brings me a Hp Dv6000 laptop about 75% of the problem is the system board or overheating issues.

First try cleaning the laptop screen with laptop screen cleaner

Walmart LCD Display Screen Cleaner for TVs Computers and Cameras

if its still blurry connect a external monitor to your laptop to see if the display is blurry on the external monitor (to get to toggle the video from your laptop you will have to press the Fn key + F4)

If its still blurry then its the graphics card or chip needs to be replaced. They are all integrated with the system board / mother board.

If its clear and images are good then the laptop screen will need to be replaced. hope that helps.

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.
