Re: My labtop is on but the screen is black, it is an HP...

Hold down the power button unit the machine is totally off then reboot. If the screen appears then and boots normally then change the power options and set the monitor power save to off or longer. If still no screen display then there are three other possibilities.

  1. At the base of the laptop screen there is a little hole with a switch inside that switch maybe be stuck down using a small flat blade screwdriver lift switch but be very careful
  2. The monitor data cable loose or fallen out there should be a access panel at the base of the screen to open and check this.
  3. The monitor is faulty and will need replacing

My hp pavilion 513n has completely stopped working! I need help!

Start the computer, and keep pressing F8 until you get a "boot" menu -- white text on a black screen.
Select "safe mode with command-line", and see if Windows will start.
If it does, enter 'CHKDSK C: /F' to get Windows to check the integrity of the file-system.

Then, find a friend with a genuine Microsoft Windows XP CD-ROM. Boot from that disk, and choose "repair", and see if the boot-process can "repair" your installed copy.

When I power on my HP Pavilion a1220n, the HP symbol comes up on the monitor, then it goes to a black screen with a smll blinking cursor for a few seconds, then...NOTHING. The power stays on but the screen...

You could check to see if the memory chips inside have dirty contacts. Happens often, basically you unplug it, remove the side cover, find the memory chips, try to remove them but basically just work them in and out a couple times to clean the contact points, reinstall and it might work. This happened to mine this am, worth a try.

HP pavilion 700 stays on black screen

It shouldn't be the issue here, as the computer is still passing the POST. It sounds like it could be a graphics card issue or a Windows issue. Try starting windows in safe mode. If this fails, try a repair install of Windows.
