The fluorescent lamp has failed.
The LCD monitor has a "backlight" in order to illuminate the video images that you see.
It may be too costly to repair, since it may break again after repair.
New LCD monitors start at just under $100.

Quick fix, if you are brave:
With an open palm (not the PDA), whack the side of the monitor gently or not so gently to see if it works.
If so, you can either replace the monitor or put up with a sore palm.

HP pavillion dv9000 has black horizontal lines across screen and looks like a snowy background


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans snowy background it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

How to troubleshoot a system that boots up but wont display



  • VGA cable replacement
  • Needle-nose pliers
  1. Power downthe computer. Check the VGA cable running from the computer to the monitor. If the cable is not snugly seated in both ports, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  2. Check the connector on each end of the VGA cable. Examine the nine pins on each connector. If any of the pins are bent or broken, the video signal will not reach the monitor. If there are just a few bent pins, you maybe able to straighten them with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Be careful not to break off any of the pins. If any of the pins are broke nor missing, you will need to replace the VGA cable with a new one.
  3. Disconnect all cables and peripherals from the computer. Open the computer case by removing the Phillips screws along the side or back of the case. Remove the cover or side panel to expose the internal components. Locate the VGA card and make sure it is fully inserted into the PCI card slot. If the card is not installed correctly, the video signal will not reach the monitor.
  4. Close the case, reconnect the power cord and all cables, and power up the computer. The video signal should display on your monitor.

I am using a compaq 1701 flat panel monitor. I installed windows Xp. The screen resolution is $4 bit color coz the driver is not installed. Looking for the driver for compaq 1701 flat panel monitor for...


The screen resolution and bit color is controlled by the video driver NOT by a driver for the monitor.
Install the correct video driver for your video card and you will be able to increase the screen resolution to over 1024 X 768 and bit color to at least 32 bits.

Is it possible to connect my computer with a VGA output to my HDTV with HDMI inputs?


hi there, sure it is.
either check if the video card has two output interfaces(VGA and HDMI) so use the white HDMI-otlet with a cable and your TV, else do get an VGA-to- HDMI adaptor and try connecting the VGA outlet and your TV-set.

Good luck

NO Signal, check cable


hi there,

you can enable a second monitor when it is plugged into the rear vga-jack while windows boots up and auto-detects it.

-by right-clicking on the desktop background, goto:
properties - display -settings- advanced - monitor - 2nd monitor:

here enable 2nd monitor.

this is only possible if u have the driver fitting your video-card and windows-version is properly installed!

good luck
