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.
This video shows you what's going on, and how to solve the problem,
For Intel chipset,here is the link for windows XP ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp28501-29000/sp28552.exe For AMD chipset with NVIDIA chipset,here is the link for windows XP ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp27001-27500/sp27325.exe For AMD chipset without NVIDIA chipset, here is the link for windows XP ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp25501-26000/sp25795.exe
I think you need to update the graphics driver. It might be downloadable from the laptop or chipset manufacturer's support website. For example, if your chipset is made by intel, please go to intel.com/support/chipsets then select the chipset family. Choose the specific chipset then click on "download" under graphics. After this, please select the operating system...hope this helps.Please let me know. Thank you.
