Although, you should have this one looked at by a qualified Laptop technician...the most likely culprits are:

1) bad harddrive or harddrive needs to be reseated
2) bad ram or needs to be reseated
3) on soem laptops there is an access panel on the back for a video card...these get loose...and some have two small wires that snap on the board...check those.
4) lastly, the cable that attaches the LCD to the motherboard. This will not be easy for the novice to find...you will have to remove the bezel and probably the keyboard...don't attempt unless you are confident.

Good luck.

My screen has a pinkish overtone, when I restart everything looks normal for a few seconds after I log into my name and then it goes red again. Everything works fine, but it pretty much hurts my eyes.


That means the backlight on your LCD display is on its last legs. I say that but I have had laptops with the pink screen that lasted like that for over a year. Or, it might go dark tomorrow. It is not the inverter, which is an easy fix. Only a replacement of the backlight (a flourescent tube built into the display panel) will fix it. So Replace the backlight at repair shops...THANK YOU

Recently tried to power computer on and computer tries to boot up but screen will only show colored lines. You can see faintly behind lines are icons like computer is trying to turn on. When shut down you...


Hello.

I'm not certain if a power issue or graphics / display issue.

If a power issue, the most common reasons are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

If a display / graphics issue, connect an external monitor to your laptop. If an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

It's also possible that your graphics card is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Ultimately, your motherboard could be faulty.

If your system is powering, but no display, connect an external monitor to see if the display itself is the problem. If an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

Hello !

Test with an external monitor. If it works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

Monotor not working


Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

Can't see the screen!!!!


Either the backlight on the LCD has failed, or the video inverter which provides power to the backlight have failed. Either way, the computer is under warranty; contact HP and have them fix it; it could get costly to do it yourself.

Laptop freezes


To me, this sounds like this laptop been beat to almost death...i would prepare for a total failure by backing up everything you want to save, and buy a new laptop...
..or pay a repairman about the cost of a used laptop to try to fix what sounds like a bunch of breaking or broken connections....
