Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

Screen is partially blank

About the bottom 3rd of the screen is blacked out. I assume this is a hardware problem, but what would I need to repair it....the entire screen or the LCD inverter? or something else? And tips to do the repair myself????

Re: Screen is partially blank

Yup the LCD has failed. The nice thing is that this series uses the same LCD as a lot of other Hp/compaq products.

The LCD is easy to remove on this series, not a lot of screws and wires.

these screen models should be compatible with your machine:

Ebay has lots of these available right now.

If you want to match it up exactly and be sure, then pull out the LCD and look at it directly. All the screws are at the corners of the front of the display. You may need a Torx screwdriver (its been a while since i saw this series).

Prior to the Windows splash screen do you see graphical issues ( black background, white writing, or bios splash screen) if you don't then the problem is with windows and will need to be reinstalled. Samsung ship laptops with a windows cd and is a fairly basic wizard. If you don't know how to do this google is full of guides. If you however see graphical problems right from turning the laptop on then there is likely to be a hardware fault straight from the factory. Contact Samsung and they will repair / replace the laptop through warranty. I have seen several Samsung laptops brand new from the box do this and It turned out to be a hardware issue and was replaced on warranty. Good luck.

My laptop screen overheated when I charged it one night,(keep in mind this is the 3rd time it has happened) and I opened it to do some school research and the screen was partially filled with broken glass....

Hi there, You need to get your monitor replaced unfortunately. This could be over $200 to repair. If you are familiar with laptop screens, it is not very hard to replace the monitor yourself, but if you do not know exactly what you are doing take it to a local repair shop and have them do it for you.

Compaq Nw8440, Display is dim after dropping it.Can not get it brighter anymore. Used all the Fn Keys already. need to find a solution

HI There,

I'm a full-time laptop repair technician. Here are the possibilities of what can be the problem. It's definitely a hardware issue. I'm going to list them in the order of most likely to the least likely.

  • 1. Behind the Bezel (the plastic frame that goes around your actual screen panel) is a small curcuit board (long, flat and thin) that controls many of the screens functions. It has either become partially bumperd loose at its connection plug or has been damaged and needs to be replaced.
  • 2. The Backlight (a very slender flourescent bulb behind the top part of the bezel) has had one of its connections partially damaged. If it had become completely broken at the connection your screen would be black.
  • 3. The screen has a plug that attaches to the motherboard inside the laptop. It may have been knocked partially loose and needs to be firmly plugged in again.
None of these repairs can be done without prior experience of disassembling your laptop, or having the Service Manual available for viewing as you go through each progressive step to get to each part and check it.

A favor please? If you are considering leaving a "2 Thumbs up" rating, please leave none at all. It only reduces my rating here for trying to help you for free.

2 inch band across the bottom of screen

Downloading programs would not cause the type of problem you're having. It should be a hardware issue only.

1.The bottom area of your screen is close to a small curcuit panel behind the bottom plastic border of the screen frame. This little panel/bar is called the Screen Inverter. If its connection plug has loosened it could be the culprit.

2. The Display Cable behind the screen panel has become partially unplugged or damaged in some way at the top of the screen, or, it has looseened at its plug connector just underneath the back edge of the power strip panel/keybaord area so that pressure applied to the bottom of the screen frame makes it connect correctly.

3. The Screen Panel itself is failing.

These are the 3 areas I'd say you should have a laptop repair tech look at locally in your area.

Best of Luck

My dell just wont turn on ,am just left with blue blank screen

That sounds like a drive problem, but it could be from the start up files being corrupted. Try putting in the Windows CD or repair disk, and starting up on that. Can you get into CMOS on the way up, so that you can be sure it will try booting off the CD first? I am assuming you get the text initial screens before Windows even starts, because the blue screen is Windows. But let me know if you meant you never get any screen at all.
Then it could be more serious, or even the screen itself. Then I would suggest things like attaching an external monitor. Etc.

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?

Partial lcd display on laptop


Sometimes the resolution changes to an unusual setting when an external monitor is attached. make the LCD screen your main monitor and change the resolution to 1024x768 or 600x800 whichever is best.
