Question about HP Pavilion dv2500t Notebook

1 Answer

A similar problem with my HP DV2700 notebook (vista)

As soon as the computer begins to startup the display shows the startup screen in a series of off center tiled "windows". The windows show the normal startup screens and even make it to the log in screen, but the colors and text are distorted making it very difficult to navigate through any sort of startup repair process (or use the computer in general).
Never seen this happen on a computer before and don't quite know how to approach the problem. Any advice would be appreciated.

Most likely you screen is damaged and will need to be replaced. have you tried starting up in safe mode. connect it to a dextop monitor and see if it works.

Hp pavilion dv9843cl. On normal startup the screen starts normal when you see the progress bar. When the desktop screen should load I get vertical lines of numerous colors and have to hold down the power...


a notebook running VIsta, i guess.
Answer 1: the OS is corrupted. (what ever it is) VISTA?
or GPU dead.
never post PC questions lacking what OS is loaded. please.
why do you say desktop?
does that mean the internal screen is dead, long ago and now you run external screen?
DV9843C
if the system is still as HP made it, IS IT?
the F11 key will pop up a screen called HP restore for VISTA
use that to reInstall the HP operation system with all HP , drivers
The HP will go back to DAY 1 condition. doing that.

if someone, put in a new HDD, and the then used Microsoft disks
to install an MS OS, then the F11 HP features will be dead.
or if the Hard disk was ever fully erased. same. deal.
we cant know what you have.

im trying hard to carbon date this hold Notebook.
year made.
as you may not know the EPA mandated lead free,
this laptops that year, all failed for, GPU chip solder joints failers
called Solder ball horrors.
in the year 2008.
HP no longer supports this laptop.
they have a spec page only, software.

here is the dead HP list
of there Pavillion page.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/retired-products


how over the list is wrong, (common)
the list in this case means soon, gone , support'
this notebook had VISTA new.
(old)
first one vista 32 was 2008
so is a solderball, laptop, the one year never to buy any laptop.

the GPU can fail, and most did.
and the screen goes dead, then the external too can go dead.
external VGA.

hope that helps.

Blank Screen on start. No display


You need to replace the motherboard. When nothing comes on the display this means the bios on the motherboard is bad and the board and cpu need replaced.

My Compaq presario f572us notebook screen turns black upon normal startup. The screen does not turn black if I start-up in the safe mode. It only when i attempt to start windows normally. Everything loads...


i also have a compaq presario f572us that's been having similar problems. when i went onto the hp website i saw that apparently they've been having similar problems with this type of computer as they offer free repairs for 2 years after you bought it. you should probably check if this works for you too
