Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
I happen to shatter my lcd screen on my hp pavilion dv9700 , did some online reserch and removed my old one and ordered the same lcd that i had . Wile waiting I ran my notebook by plugging into my tv hdmi cable and it ran fine. Got the new one today , did the install , but on start up it goes black. So did start up in safemode , works good but tried all I can but no luck in regular mode.
I don't know what the other people have been telling you, can you start up in safe mode, then right click on your my computer, or computer. its either on desktop or in start menu.
click on manage from the right click menu.
on the computer management window, on the left side select Device manager, then on the rightside open up display adapters, right click on your display adapter and uninstall it, uninstall drivers if it asks, then restart the computer normally, is the problem solved?

Why It is happening
It is happening because each and every console works on different frequencies. Since, You connected your LT to TV the autoplug and play has changed the resolution of the AVG which in turn transmits the different frequency to your television which should be very high in comparison to your LCD monitor. Now it cannot revert back to the lower freqnency because of limitation of your AVG card. Few AVG cards have this limitation that they can change easilly for higher frequencies but not towards lower frequencies. Instead of getting any display if you connect it to some other tube based monitor you will read error of out of frequency range error. Since all your options to change the AVG cards out has been locked out. You are able to get display in safe mode. because in safe mode only standard console driver is loaded which is not enhanced through your AVG card.
How to correct it.
1. You are only left with 3 options either get one more LT of same model and connect your your console output to its com and select the option of using dual console. This way the PnP will change the frequency of your AVG to earlier stage.
2. You have to reformat your root and re-install all your drivers and programmes. But select this option only if you have all the drivers available with you and take the backup of your imp files before optiong.
3. Registry hack, Meanwhile, you ponder on which option you wish to choose I know the best solution for you would be this registry hack. Through which I can disable your AVG driver via your registry. But for that I require minimum 30 minutes.
Kindly do let me know which option you have selected and as of now don't accept this as a solution or rate me or else we will not be able to communicate.

This is very much a driver issue. The display is working upon boot (the logo screens) and in Safe Mode as those modes use a generic video and monitor driver. But it isn't working in normal mode as the driver has been removed after the installation of the new monitor.
Can I ask you to boot up the laptop, and immedietely after you see the first HP logo disappear, keep on tapping the F8 key until a list of options comes up on a black screen (this is the same screen from where you accessed the Safe Mode option from). But instead of choosing Safe Mode, can you select the option called Enable VGA Mode (or similar).
After doing that, does it boot into Windows normally? You'll know if it has because you won't see the words SAFE MODE appear on the corners of your screen like they do in the actual Safe Mode.
Let me know if it gets into Windows by using the Enable VGA Mode. If it does, your screen may appear low quality. If it does, you will need to install the video card drivers. To do this, although your laptop is the DV9700, there should be a more specific model (such as DV9700T, or DV9701, etc). Please check the label on the base of the laptop for any specific model number. Pease let me know.

I apologize up front for suggesting this if you've already done it; pretty much all laptops have a way of switching between display types. If you had your TV hooked up you probably switched your laptop from LCD display to external display. Check the switch and see if you just left it in external mode. The reason it would work in safe mode is because the switching software driver would not have been loaded in that mode. Failing this, if the lcd still doesn't work there may be a problem with your new display. When in Safe Mode your computer is running as a plain old vanilla display with slow cycle speeds. Once you display in regular mode the display is switched to a higher frequency. This might be part of the problem.
Good luck, and I hope it is just the switch.

Assuming the new display is good then you either need to reinsert the data connector again or make sure that the ground wire is properly attached. As long as the display is good or the display and laptop base were not subjected to a static shock it's just going to be your connectors.
The data connector is the plug that pushed into the connector. They can look like they are in right but not be quite right. The ground wire will just be a lug terminal and a screw that has to go to the right place as well as making good contact. Those would be the two things that will do this. So you have to take it apart again and double check everything. Annoying but won't take long and you should be running.
You should see the display do something as soon as you hit the power button. Should show the hp logo or some form of boot display. No need to wait for windows to get started.
