Question about HP Pavilion dv4000 Notebook

5 Answers

When starting my DV4000 - the screen is dark other than a cursor in the left corner.

When I start my HP Pavillion DV4000 - the screen is dark and a flashing cursor appears in the top left corner.
A friend helped run a systems check and it resulted in a "#2-07 Fail" message. I couldn't get beyond that point and the device still doesn't work.
Any ideas ?

    My HP 4000 won't boot up. When I go to PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility and run the hard drive test I get a Test Status: #1- 07 Fail

    Are there any other tests I can run? I don't want to buy another hard drive if something else is wrong. Thanks

That error indicates a hard drive problem. You probably have to replace the hard drive.

The blinking curser indicates searching for next instruction.so more than likely you are missing instruction data (win32 for instance) try to install fresh os or repair existing one.....
have os disk in drive ,rebooot , install from cd.

This is a known problem with certain HPWhen starting my DV4000 - the screen is dark other - 1.gif and Compaq laptops. Check out the link below to see if you qualify for the free service enhancement program. The same thing happened to me and HP is sending me a postage paid box to mail my laptop to them and they are going to fix it and mail it back.

You need to make the USB first boot in BIOS, or use the boot menu selection. Both are noted during start up.

Then there is the issue of the USB install is it bootable? You need software like Novicorp to make an USB Installer. gl

My HP Pavillion DV6000 laptop starts up fine and after a few minutes the screen turns black. I can still see the desktop image in the background but barely. If I reboot the screen looks normal again but...


That means your backlight is going out. The fact that it's happening intermittently like that suggests that you have a faulty screen inverter (a small circuit behind the screen that converts DC power to AC, in order to light the florescent backlight).
I suggest replacing it. Here are some on abay for pretty cheap:

It sounds very much like an inverter issue. The inverter sits under the lcd screen in the screen plastics. It is replaceable, but obviously there is a danger the screen may get damaged.

Hp dv4000 screen turned pink now black


If its not the backlight inverter or cable. It will be the LCD screen itself. It seems the shop you took it to isn't really up on laptop repair, as this is a common issue I see often. Get on Ebay and find a screen for your model and replace it. I asure you this will fix your problem.

Have you replace the lcd inverter? if it works on external monitor, given the screen is new, then it leaves the inverter. Usually in the case of dark screen, it should be the first thing to check/replace.
