Computer was on. when i came back to go back on, lights were on but screen blacked out. tried to hold power down to reset. goes on, then it shuts off after a minute. if i leave it alone it keeps going on and off. the only way to stop that is to hold the power down. it was just working fine but its acting weird.

Hey i have the same laptop ( HP dv9308nr )
which i bought new from best buy. It came with MS Vista on it, which i removed and put xp on instead.
And havent had a single problem until i recently bought and installed Windows 7. did all the updates and was running smooth until i shut it down and restarted in the morning. i ran into the same problems you have, so i uninstalled all the drivers from computer management one by one. and found (for me that is) that the hp quick launch buttons driver and the Nvidia nForce Chipset driver might have been the wrong ones installed for my system (note - i installed all my drivers through MS UPDATE. so i downloaded the 2 drivers from HP.com (sp36079 and sp40139) and havent had a problem with system bootup since

hope this helps

One thing to try is if you can, connect an external monitor to the computer. Turn it off and then back on with the external monitor on. If video on the external monitor then the problem is with the laptop monitor most likely the FL inverter or the lcd itself. If no external video, it is most likely a motherboard problem.

My old, cheap Dell will not come on, screen is black


The memory it is referring to is RAM, not hard drive space. You may have a bad memory module; one easy way to tell is, if your computer comes up at all, right click My Computer and select properties, it should display on this screen how much memory the computer thinks it has. You may need to get some new RAM.

Starlogic 20 inch widescreen monitor screen keeps going black


This is probably a back light problem. Take a bright flashlight and while the monitor is on, point it at the LCD and try different angles, etc. If you can see an image, it is the back light, probably the back light voltage converter unit in the lcd. It could also be the back light bulbs.

If you don't see an image with the flash light, then it could be the main logic board.
