Question about HP Pavilion ze4300 Notebook

Video blinking in and out

Hi! I was suprised to find this page... I hope you can give me an idea about this problem. It obviously just went out of warrenty and now the screen is occassionally going off when bent back at a normal viewing angle. If I pull it towards me, almost closed, it works fine. When it is off, I can still see the desktop in the background, its almost as if the desktop light is off but the stuff is still being shown on the desktop. Very strange. Is it just the connection of the video to the notebook, or does the LCD need to be replaced? Thank you very much for any assistance you can offer!

Re: Video blinking in and out

Sounds like a loose or cracked ribbon connection.
If you feel you can maybe fix it yourself.
Here is the service manual for it:

What makes a computer does not display

There are many reasons why a computer might not display. The most obvious are
1. Monitor not plugged in (mains or computer), powered on etc
2. The video/graphics card which translates the computer's operations to a format the monitor can display may be faulty, set to a resolution the monitor can't handle
3 The video card may not be seated properly in its slot
4. The section of the motherboard dealing with graphics may be faulty.
5. The power supply being distributed by the motherboard to the graphics card slot may be not working/insufficient.
Hope this gives you some idea of the possible answers to your question. A lot more detail on the computer, graphics card, monitor etc is required to give a more relevant, less generalised answer.
All the best

_ma laptop just went dead it charger blinks bt no power s getin to the laptop.

Hi c_odipo,
The problem isn't your laptop because the fault is coming from your charger. Blinking of led light in your charger indicated that it goes in out-of-regulation. To confirmed the fault you need to use another charger with the same output voltage and current ratings. Once confirmed that the laptop will power on with other charger, you need to replaced your own. There some shop that repair this faulty charger, you must find one and ask for estimate how much will be charged to get fix to have an idea whether to buy a new one.
Hope I help you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi all I am sitting with a problem that seems fairly common with Toshiba A100's but suprisingly there is no solution for it....yet. The laptop will not switch on at all, when the AC is connected it makes...

Hope it helps.

Wireless does not show up in Network Connections

I had this same problem sometime ago and I first reversed my last action and I still did not get back my wireles. So out of desperation I backed up my files and made use of the recovery disk that came with my laptop, Although I had to wait through the process of deleting the contents of my computer first, after the operating system was reinstalled, to my suprise my wireless connection was initialised and it started working. All I had to do after that`was to point it to the right wireless network to work with. I hope this solves your problem Sahaja.
