This seemed to work for me. Newer models of the hp series has a switch
located inside the hinge, so when you close your lid it shuts off the screen. Older models have a button located near the top hinge. By adjusting the brightness using the fn functions (holding fn near ctrl, and pressing f8 at the top) then close the lid till the screen goes dark, then open it. The screen should be set to the adjusted brightness. I think it changes the default brightness, learned through trial n error :-) Hope it works for you.

Check your inverter, it's possibly going bad or loose connection

My hp pavillion dv6000 works but , no light up screen . any suggestions?


If there is an image on the screen, but it is incredibly dark and washed out, then your laptop's back light is out. This is an expensive repair that often exceeds $300. Solutions can be having it repaired, getting it replaced, or using an external monitor with the laptop.

Turn the brightness up slightly and turn the contrast on the highest setting. There may also be settings to control wether your projectin on a wall or on a screen. Make sure these settings are correct to your setup.

HP Pavillion dv6000 will not load


HP pavillion will not load
if you are able to see the HP logo that tells you that bios is loading but when it gets to the operating system on your hard drive, it can not be located. One of the reasons can be a bad hard drive if it is it needs to be replaced, turn the computer over and check that access covers, one shows you a hard drive logo and it should have 1 or 2 screws, remove those or just loose them up. You may have to stick a tiny flat screwdriver under the cover to pop it off, after you do that remove the screws that hold the hard drive; there should be a plastic or tape tab to pull the hard drive out. Go ahead and pull it out, make sure that the adapter on the hard drive (shiny box) it is properly attached. check the prongs on the computer where the hard drive goes check for dark spots (burn like) if everything looks fine, re insert hard drive (make sure that it makes proper contact) and close the lids turn it on and see if it loads. if it doesn't then you know how to replace a hard drive you just have to have your cds' to load the operating system

if it works for you don't forget to rate me
thx

Laptop Pavillion DV6188eu doesn't start up


From what you are describing, the motherboard has failed. I would however like you to try a couple of things though. First remove the hard drive and see if the computer will go to the BIOS screen. If it does not, then the Motherboard has definately died. If you can get to the BIOS, then you might consider a hard drive failure, or your windows installation is so corrupt, it is causing this problem. I would however lean toward a bad MOBO....seems this model, the DV6000 and the DV9000 have serious cooling issues and tend to burn their mobos up. HP recently started updating the BIOS files for these models so the fans and processor run more efficiently to keep the laptop cooler.
