Iverted Screen Color on my HP laptop

All of a sudden the screen on my HP Pavillion dv2225 has inverted color. I can't find any solution under the graphics card settings or under appearance settings. Is there a key code to invert like on Macs? Or is my graphics card bad? My computer is less than a year old!

Please help! My eyes are hurting! :)

My HP Pavillion DV5000 has a black screen (no backlight) when I shine a flashlight on the screen I can see my icons and desktop. When I turn on the laptop, the start up screen have weird reddish color and...

Most likely the screen , but it could be the invertor or even the motherboard.
Voltages must be measured on the invertor to isolate the problem.
these are not easy to trouble shoot.
If the 5 volts to the invertor is missing suspect the motherboard, also some of these have motherboard graphics card issues that can cause this issue, but since the external monitor works I'd say its not the graphics card.
I hope this helps

Hi there,

ASAP (and the caps are intentional) get your laptop connected to an external monitor. If the display is fine on the "big screen", it's most likely you only have a screen inverter/lcd failure. Failing Inverters can cause the effect you're seeing as well as an LCD burn out on the way.

If the displays are identical, then your video card is about to fail.

At least you'll know, and know right away.

Best Regards,

Hp pavillion ze5200 works on external monitor but not on laptop screen


there is something wrong with either your screen or screen inverter.

If you are not a laptop expert, I would advice that you take the laptop to a repairer that will help you diagnose the main fault so that you can either repair or replace either the inverter or screen.

Good luck.

Screen Brightness is set too high. Washed out.What Buttons do I push on an HP Pavillion lap top Model N3295 ?

Go into display settings and click on advanced settings, then click on the color tab. There is a slider in there that controls the screen brightness. This is for windows xp but vista should be similar.

HP Pavillion DV4000 notebook display shading

It sounds very much like an inverter issue. The inverter sits under the lcd screen in the screen plastics. It is replaceable, but obviously there is a danger the screen may get damaged.

Laptop monitor display problems!

Check your resolution and color settings.
  1. On a blank area on the desktop, right click and select "Properties" or go to Start-->Control Panel-->Display.
  2. On the "Settings" tab, verify the resolution is at least 1024x748 and the color quality is at least 16 bit. You may have to play with these values to get back to normal operation.
This is the first step, so let me know if it doesn't work!

Hp Pavilion dv1000 Black screen

It is either the inverter board or the bulb

If it looks pink in color than it is the bulb and that can be quite the intensive project to replace

If it is the inverter board than that is not so bad and you can pick up an inverter board on eBay usually for around $10 to $20 and that usually installs right under the LCD screen (usually screwed to the LCD screen)

The inverter board is what powers the light bulb the data cable is totally separate function.
If you can see data on the screen with a flashlight but there is absolutely no light coming from the screen at all ever than it is probably just the inverter board

But there is a possibility that you could order the inverter board and have it turn out to be the bulb and if that is the case then unless you are very comfortable taking apart laptops then maybe a new screen would be best since you practically have to take apart the LCD to change the bulb.

But screen cost around 100 to 150 on eBay so if you decide to do that then might as well try for a deal like this: (I just spotted this on eBay and it is for entire new top half of laptop with glossy screen and inverter board wire harness and all for the same price or less than just the screen

That is guaranteed to solve your problem for sure.
