HP Pavilion dv6700 faulty video card.

Hello everyone, I have a HP Pavilion dv6700 Notebook and i believe the Video Card is Faulty. I was wondering does anyone know if i will have to replace the whole motherboard or will i be able to just replace the video card. If i have to replace the motherboard, what kind of cost will i be looking at and would it be worth the money spent to fix the problem.

Thanks, Zeph.

    Well the Notebook seems to power up as normal (Fans start and lights on keyboard are lit up) but the screen stays completely blank. Iv'e read that this is a common problem with HP Notebooks and that its most likely a case of a faulty video card.

  • zephiah Jun 19, 2009

    My warranty expired about 2 months ago im sorry to say. I ws quite disappointed that its only 14 months old and is already in need of major repairs.

  • zephiah Jun 19, 2009

    Yes i was told by a HP tech support employee to install and updated BIOS but i told him that i was unable to see anything due to a blank screen and go no reply after that.

  • zephiah Jun 19, 2009

    I tried an external monitor but still nothing, I'm not game to try and clean the ram myself so i will probly have to get a professional to have a look at it. Thanks for all the help so far, if anyone else has anymore suggestions id be more than happy to try them :)

The HP Pavilion DV6700 has nVidia GeForce Go 8400M GS on-board video, so if the video is truely faulty, then you will need to replace to whole board. This product is covered under a 1 year warranty also, so I would call up HP and try to get a replacement for the board. A cost of a new board is going to run between $120 to $150 dolloard depending on what site you order it from.

    Nope, sorry- been there, done that, as have lots of folks. Try this instead- one or the other will work for you. If you don't feel capable, find yourself a good mechanically-inclined geek and let them do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctHTF3oNd... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGdTjKt-c...

Hi,
Video cards are integrated onto laptop motherboards so you will have to replace the whole mobo and can cost between $150 - $400 depending on where you get one from.
Many people end up getting a new computer instead and sell their old ones for spares to make up the money.
Just out of interest can you tell me what is wrong with the laptop graphics as it may be as simple as the graphics drivers being bad.


Regards

    There is plenty of troubleshooting to do before you come to that conclusion, check the video card by plugging an external monitor up to the laptop, and use the keyboard toggle to switch displays (usually Fn and a F key), if the external monitor displays then the video card is fine and the problem lies else where.
    You can also take the the system memory and clean the contacts and the
    memory slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush, then reseat the memory
    1 by 1 and try to boot the machine.
    The problem could also be a loose cable at the inverter which is located underneath the screen or it could be the inverter itself which needs replacing.

    Please keep me posted as to your progress just in case you need anymore advice.

    Your not going to be able to flash the BIOS without having something on screen to follow instruction, as i have previously posted it might not be the video card.
    Try an external monitor and clean the ram.
    That will give you a better idea as to the problem.

    From HP website



    Understanding problems with notebook PC resuming from hibernation/sleep mode
    The
    notebook PC may display error code 83 or the notebook PC does not
    display anything on the LCD display after resuming from
    Hibernation/Sleep Mode or restarting the notebook. To resolve this
    issue, download and install an updated BIOS using one of the methods
    described below.

    If you have an HP factory image on your computer, you can run:



    • HP Health Check


    • The online diagnostic HP Instant Support Professional Edition (ISPE).



    However, if your computer does not contain an HP factory image, you should:



    • Install the updates manually





  • Alun Cox Jun 19, 2009

    I'm just wondering how you can install the updates if the screen is blank?!?

  • Alun Cox Jun 19, 2009

    Unfortuneately I' pretty much in the dark as refers laptops but, on the basis that a laptop is just a smaller version of a desktop this could work.
    Reset the bios on desktops there is usually a jumper near the mobo battery failing this remove ALL power for 24 hrs. This could allow you to update the BIOS but other than that I can't think of anything perhaps someone else has a fix.

    Good luck anyway.

Hello,

You may have a faulty video card. Test this card with a know working pc. If your video is embedded on your main board, try using a PCi video card.

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.

Hello

OK, depending on the bois version you have, the problem is either your ram modules, or your video card.

I will suggest that you start by taking out the ram module and see if the beeping persists.

If not, you will need to buy new ram.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

How much does a new video card cost for a pavilion dv6700 was told the graphic card is faulty and is the reason the screen goes blank at random times


Usually graphics cards are built directly onto the motherboard in laptops so you need to replace the motherboard. This is very expensive. Alternatively you could contact a local board repairer who has a work station and they may be able to repair it for you. Hope this helps,

Yes get and install the latest Video card drivers for you card & operating system, this may help, but FIRST, simply try going into Device manager, and Uninstalling the Driver for the Video card, reboot and let windows install the driver, it may install the "Generic" version,and that may fix your problem. as an aside sometimes it is the RAM on the Video card that goes faulty? Hopefully it will not be that.

Showing a red line at the center on the monitor of my hp note book (dv2713tu). I think my video card or lcd panel is faulty.What might be the cause? If my video card/ lcd panel is to be replaced, Please...


FIRST OF ALL TRY CONNECTING YOUR NOTEBOOK TO ANOTHER MONITOR...THIS WILL TELL IF THE LCD SCREEN IS FAULTY OR YOUR VIDEO CARD. IF YOUR LCD SCREEN IS FAULTY AND YOU WANT TO DO IT YOURSELF http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-lcd-screen-inverter-board-hp-pavilion-dv9000-laptop/all-comments/ A VERY USEFUL SITE.SCREEN WOULD COME IN BETWEEN $150-200 YOU CAN CHECK AT EBAY FOR THE APPROX. PRICE,YOU CAN EVEN CALL THE HP COMPANY AND ASK FOR THE REVISED RATES THAT WILL GIVE YOU AN IDEA. IT IS NOT THAT EASY WITH THE VIDEO CARD BECAUSE IT'S USUALLY ATTACHED TO THE MOTHERBOARD AND CONSIDER THAT YOU HAVE TO SPEND MORE BUCKS THAN THE SCREEN FOR A GOOD VIDEO CARD. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO TAKE IT TO AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE CENTER.

Hello I have an HP Pavillioon dv2210 us. It


I contacted hp about this problem since i saw many other models had the same issue and were replaced.. ..this model did not belong to any free replace/free repair lists and a motherboard chanche would've cost 900+€, so i came up with a perfect solution: 1. Place the computer on top of two 2 inch high iron tubes/bricks/anything hard enough and leave a gap between them. 2. Take a sledgehammer and release all of your frustation-caused force, hitting the middle of the laptop and the gap.. 3. Go buy a new laptop and make a double check it is not a hp/compaq product ;)

You could have a faulty LCD screen or a faulty video cable/connector.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard. If this doesn't work a replacement LCD screen may be required.
Check LCD Parts for parts and repair service, Use this link.
