Ok, hubby had this problem on his Compaq...black screen...seemed to be doing something as the cd drive would spin, all lights came on, but black screen. Don't know how long this will work, but try pressing the frame above the F6 key when you boot up. (I know it sounds weird, but work with me!)
There is something about this being where the video card attaches to the mother board and no clue how long it will continue to solve the problem. It will give you enough time to at least retrieve data you need off of your hard drive and burn to cd(s). I think the video card is integrated into the motherboard, thus once it dies completely, you'll still have all of your data backed up as it will be as expensive to replace the motherboard as it will to buy a new laptop!
Good luck! (We are furiously backing up data as I type!!!!)

Try reseating the memory modules and powering back up. This is a common problem and a common fix. If that doesn't do it, try reseating the hard drive. If that doesn't work, get back to me with more details and we'll go from there.

SOURCE: black screen will not boot up
The DV's all have pretty serious issues as a whole. DV1000's are currently under investigation for class action and I could give them info to add about 20 more model numbers but these are not my suit. The one with the power light flashing try a new adapter first but I'm sceptical. Weve seen way too many of these in and they like to short components are kill Maxim chips for PMU..

When you boot it up try to connect to external monitor, if you see something on that then it might be the backlight or inverter.
