Question about HP Pavilion G60-120US NoteBook

Open Question

When my hp G60-120US notebook lid is closed, or idle for awhile, the screen saver disappears, blue screen appears, and it's in locked position. It never did this before. Always kicked in to screen saver page when pad was touched or lid was opened. It was suggested I go to "properties". That's fine, but can't find them. When I right click on screen,it's not option anywhere. Tell me how to get the computer back to the original mode please.

Completely remove the battery and unplug the power cord for a few minutes. Reinsert battery and power up. You can also hit F8 when starting and see if you can boot into safe mode.

SOURCE: Keyboard and touch pad will not work

The HP50 and HP60 laptops both have a lock button I just discovered by tripping over it today. Couldn't find a description of it in the printed or onboard manuals. This button is in addition to the overall computer lock function key (f6) that is well described. This keyboard/touchpad (k/t) lock button is obvious when pointed out, but less so when those items are already locked out by casual hand motion. The button is located just above the touchpad and is embedded in the border trim of the keypad. It toggles access to your k/t. It has a little indicator light so one doesn't miss it, but it is pretty low-key, if you forgive the pun. Designers can be a little too cool sometimes!

SOURCE: HP Pavilion dv9000 scroll on mouse pad has stopped working

I figured it out! The same exact thing happens to me. To fix the problem: When you exit full screen mode, click your mouse on your internet page to make sure you are actively on that page, then hit the space bar twice. I have been using this method for a week now, and it solves the problem every time!! I hope this helps you!

Hp pavilion all in one AMD goes to sleep after 1 minute idle then asks for password to open up.. how to extend idle time to 2 hours


What you are experiencing isn't "sleep" mode, it is the screen saver. If you have WINXP, right click on a clear area of the desktop, and select "Properties". When the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window appears, select the "screen saver" tab. Change the "WAIT" time to the time you wish the scrren saver to delay. If you don't want to have to login after a screen time out, uncheck the "On resume, display Welcome Screen" box.

Blue Screen hardware error on new HP g series notebook pc


It appears you have a faulty notebook. This can happen if the notebook come from the same batch of units that could be faulty.
I suggest you return the notebook to the store and get it fixed under warranty.

When pc left on after 15 minutes the screen keeps changing colours from reds /greens /greys/blues constantly is this normal


Maybe this is a Screen Saver, set to start after 15 minutes. Open up Control Panel then Appearance and Personalization, then Screen Saver to check on this and perhaps choose a more pleasant screen saver.

Black screen


If the screen is breaking up into multiple screens, the video resolution isn't set correctly. Change the video properties back to the native resolution.

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen. Click on Properties at the bottom. Now click on the Settings tab.
The Screen Resolution slider should be all the way to the right, close to -> More.
The Colors should be set to the highest setting.

When you close the lid, you may have your laptop set to Sleep Mode, check that. You may also have your screen saver set to Blank, and no screen saver has been chosen.

(1.Screen Saver: Right-click on empty area of desktop>Properties>Screen Saver.

2.Sleep Mode: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>Power Options>Power Buttons>When I press the sleep button on my computer>Then choose what you want it to do)

If none of this helps, I suggest you have a problem that HP needs to repair. Since you bought this dv9700t last July, would I be correct in assuming it's still under warranty?

Hp dv4000 screen problem


Sounds like its trying to go into sleep mode or standby or just turning the screen off.

This usualy happens because in the power options, the screen is set to shut off after say 5 minutes. It could be that the lid closed sensor is bad and it thinks your closing it and does this.

Try right clicking on the desktop, select properties, in the pop up box, select the scren savers Tab and at the bottom it should have a button for the power options.

Click that, in there you should see several new tabs partaining to your power options. one has some drop down boxes that lets you set what it does when the lid is close, when you press the power button and when you press the sleep button.

I would try turning the, " turn off screen option" to off and see if it still does it.

It usually says. 'When I close the lid to my laptop, i want it to: " then it will list the options.

Also turn off the standby settings if you want so it doesnt go into standby every time you walk away for 5 minutes.

Just set it how you want. but for now, just disable the close lid options so we can see if it still does it.

Good luck and let me know.
