Basically your laptop is fine however this is no display

To find out use an external monitor and connect it to your laptop.


Plug the monitor power cord fro the monitor going to the power outlet
plug the other cord from the monitor going to the laptop video port

Above is the laptop video port where you will plug the video cord from the monitor


Once the External monitor is connected to your laptop swqitch on your laptop if the display will appear on the external monitor after switching on the laptop. 100% the problem will the LCD of your laptop and you need to bring it on service center..

I think your operating system is corrupt. Do one thing for checking it out.
Take a bootable windows xp cd and boot from it . If system boots from winxp cd then it means your OS is corrupt.
Try to reinstall it.
Let me know after doing this

You may have memory problems. Memory module(s) may be defective or not seated correctly in place. Check the memory modules first. It seems that you have already checked the RAM modules.
Connect the computer to a monitor and reboot to see if anything is displayed on external monitor.

HP Pavilion DV5 Black screen LCD lights blinking on Scroll & Caps lock

When HP laptops don't boot but blink the scroll and caps lock lights it usually means there is a problem with the motherboard or RAM. The ram can usually be removed from the bottom of the laptop with relative ease. Before removing the RAM or doing any work on the laptop please make sure that it is unplugged and the battery has been removed. Locate the door pictured below and unscrew and remove it. The ram is held in by two prongs putting pressure on the chip from either side. Push the prongs out and the ram should slant forward, out of the machine. Carefully remove the RAM and clean the connectors gently with a pencil eraser. Carefully put them back in and back between the pins. Place the door back on and screw it back in place. Try rebooting the laptop. If you don't feel comfortable doing this or if the issue is one with the motherboard, and your laptop is still under warranty you may want to call HP. If it is under warranty HP will most likely repair your machine free of charge. mthealey716.jpg

I think your laptop might be stuck in SUSPEND mode. Try unplugging the power and removing the battery and waiting five minutes, and then plugging it back in. If this does not work, try holding down the power button for ten seconds at a time and rebooting.

Good Luck...
