Question about Black & Decker 1000w Power Inverter

HP Pavillion DV7-2185DX Won't charge with the inverter

My laptop is a hp dv7-2185 dx. pretty beefy with a 1GB gddr3 graphics and more. When i plug it into an inverter, be it a 150watt, 220watt,up to a 400watt, it does not work. It would charge for about 7 seconds and turn off. I am thinking this is because the rated output current of the inverter. As the power block for the laptop may need lets say 2.8 Amps, it needs a sudden surge of about 8 or more amps. Thus, the sine wave throughput with the inverter has a protection module and cuts off at a given point giving you more of a square wave sinusoidal wave rather than a smooth parabolic curve. I personally have fixed this by simply over-doing the entire problem, I went to my local wal-mart superstore and exchanged my 400Watt inverter for a slightly more expensive 750Watt. (about $20 more) this seemed to seamlessly eradicate the issue all together. Sorry for the length response but i hope it helps and remember, KEEP YOUR RECEIPT!! Good luck to you all!

Invertors do NOT like the load that a typical laptop switching supply presents to them.

You are MUCH better buying a direct convertor that converts the input voltage to that required by the laptop. It is more efficient and somewhat safer. (and usually cheaper)

Try plugging in an external monitor and see how the display shows on it. If the display is ok on the external then your LCD Screen is going bad. If it shows the same colors on the external monitor then your video graphics card has issues.

Screen will not come on hp pavillion 2000 laptop help


Hi,

try powering the laptop on, and open/closing the lid.
this is to ensure, the closed lid catch is activating/de-activating.
you should get a beep or tone, when the lid is closed.
Or the laptop, will go into Sleep/hibernation Mode.
Also try pressing and holding the power on Button for more Than 5 seconds, This will eliminate that the laptop hasn,t gone Into sleep/hibernate Mode.
If none of this Works for You. Try removing and replacing The memory modules ( RAM ) and use 1 stick of memory in each slot individually. failing any of this. i,d suspect. Screen Inverter/tft Panel Or Motherboard Fault. Or possible graphics driver Corrupt/missing.

HP pavillion dv6000 will not turn on


This could be many things, such as a dead battery, faulty charger, dead motherboard, faulty outlet the laptop is plugged into. Now, if the lights are on but the laptop will not boot up or show life on the screen, then most likely that is a dead motherboard due to a failure of the graphics chip. If there are lights, but there is no HDD or fan activity, then that is a failure of the motherboard. If the computer shows signs of booting, HDD lights are active, try to see if you can see a failnt image on the screen, it may be very faint and hard to see anything. This would indicate afailure of the screen inverter and would just need an inverter replaced.
