Pavilion dv1000: Screen doesn't come on immediately on switching on. There's the faintest of images visible. When I press the screen-closure button the screen comes on for half a second and goes black again. I have to repeatedly press this button about 200 times until the screen stays on.Then it stays on all day until I switch the laptop off again.

The dv1000's were a limited edition notebook withmany issues. the motherboard going on them was one of them. connect the motebook to a desktop monitor if you have one and simultaneously press Fn + F4 to use the monitor as a screen. If nothing happens begin crying. Time to buy a new laptop. You information is safe but you need an IDE/SATA PCI adapter to view the files on another computer. If you were using XP, i hope you didn't password protect it making it private. That will be problem number 2.
The lid actuator switch may not be working correctly. It's a small switch above the keyboard and led's on either the right or left side. Try pressing it 2 or 3 times to see if the display starts working correctly again. If so, it will need to be replaced.
If that doesn't work, you can also turn it on with the ac adapter plugged in. After it boots, press the power button and hold it in until it shuts off and then turn it on again and see if the display has returned to normal.
If neither of these options work, your laptop may need to have the backlight replaced.
well seems like the lcd has lost or the video card has an issue easy way to find out is to hook it up to a monitor and if the pitcure comes out fine then its your lcd screen and if it appears the same then its your video card.
you have an ext monitor connection which you can use another monitor or get s-video lead and connect to a tv.
use fn + f4(or f key that has little square icon printed on it)
this combination switches from laptop screen to ext screen/tv
If there is no media in the card reader, press F8 after the laptop beeps during boot and this should give you a Safe Mode boot screen, choose Safe Mode and then your default OS listed. After you get your desktop, restart the laptop.
If when you press F8 you get a boot from what screen, choose your hard drive and then immediately press F8 again to get the Safe Mode boot screen.
You need to either remove the flash media or use Safe Mode and then restart to reset the Boot Ini information script.
Let me know if this works for you or not, as we may need to take another measure.
You need to press hold the FN key and press the F4 function key once which toggles the display to the External Display source like the television connected along with the LCD of the Notebook.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed again, the display will dissappear from the LCD of the Notebook and remain only on the external source.
If the FN and F4 key combination is pressed third time, the display will be back on the LCD of the Notebook and will not remain on the External display source.
Here are these details in other way :
First time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display on LCD and External display
Second time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display not on LCD but on the External Display
Third time pressing FN + F4 ---> Display back on the LCD and not available on External Display (Normal position).
Below are the details of what the Function keys in your DV1000 Notebook work :
fn + f1 Opens Help and Support Center
fn + f2 Opens print options window
fn + f3 Opens default Internet browser
fn + f4 Switches the image among displays
fn + f5 Initiates Standby
fn + f6 Initiates QuickLock
fn + f7 Decreases screen brightness
fn + f8 Increases screen brightness
fn + f9 Plays, pauses, or resumes an audio CD or DVD
fn + f10 Stops an audio CD or DVD
fn + f11 Plays the previous track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + f12 Plays the next track or chapter on an audio CD or DVD
fn + esc Displays system information.* (*To clear the system information display, press esc.)
Hope this helps...
The main two causes for this, are the inverter, which supplies the screen with the proper amount of power in order to function correctly, or the screen. If the inverter isn't puting out enough power it will cause the screen to darken or black out completely. Start by checking the screen connections. If all the connection are properly seated, the it's either the inverter or the screen it self.
