Hp pavilion dv2000 black screen

Posted by Spoem on Apr 29, 2009Have you tried holding the Fn key down and then pressing the F8 key? That is a toogle between display modes. It may be that the keys were pressed by mistake and some pint and the display is being directed to an external device. This is a three way toogle, 1 to the internal display, one to an external display and the 3rd to both. Press and hold the Fn key and press and release the F8 key. Wait a few seconds for the system to respond. Repeat the process three times to see if you get an image on the screen.

You can also try connecting an external monitor to see if an image is display on it. If an external monitor works but the internal does not, you will probably need to replace the interal display.

**** What if i tried connecting an external monitor and no image was displayed on it. then what would the problem be?

How do I turn down brightness on my hp Windows 7 computer?


Below are instructions to adjust brightness on HP laptop

    • Press the "Fn" key with the computer turned on and hold the key.

    • Press the "F7" or "F8" key on some HP laptops, which are printed with a small sun icon on the key. The sun icon is filled on the function key for dimming the laptop. The other key is printed with a hollow sun icon for brightening the screen.

    • Press the "Fn" and left arrow keys together on some HP laptops to turn down the brightness. The "Fn" and right arrow key will increase brightness. Press and release the right arrow key repeatedly, while holding down "Fn," to decrease the screen brightness slowly, or hold the keys to darken the screen as low as the setting will go.

  1. For HP Monitors

    • Press and hold the down arrow key on the front panel of the monitor below the screen to turn down the brightness on the external monitor to the lowest setting.

    • Repeatedly press the down arrow button to dim the monitor gradually.

    • Press the up arrow key on the monitor to increase brightness.

My screen is black

Turn it off, take out the battery, take out the charger, hold the power button for 10 seconds, plug in the charger, put the battery back in... if it turns on then bingo if it doesn't...
you may have turned the screen off, this can be done by holding the FN key and pressing one of the F keys... f1 f2 f3 ect at the top of your keyboard... its most likely the one with a little picture of a screen... just try them all.
hold in the FN then press them all the f-keys one by one (always holing down the FN key)
Good luck!

What are the appropriate steps to connect an external monitor to an HP Pavillion DV2000? When I try, nothing appears on the external screen... Thanks, RF

One of the function keys has a small monitor screen icon. Press that key while holding the Fn key, and you will enable the external monitor connector. These laptops don't automatically sense when you've connected an external monitor. On some models, the first press enables the external monitor and shuts off the laptop screen. If that happens, press the keys again and the laptop screen will come back on.

The screen remains black when computer is turned

maybe a hardware problem, on booting the pc, move the screen to every angle to see if there is a connection problem.
If so, then use your warranty if you have one.

If you press the Fn and Num Lock at exactly the same time, it usually won't work. Hold down Fn key first, then press Num kock. See if that works.
