HP Pavilion DV2000 black screen, but no beeps

Hello, I came across this page accidentally by searching the web and wonder if I can get an advice :)

Here's my problem: I have a HP Pavilion DV2000 (Intel Core Duo) with ''standard'' motherboard problem: not so long ago started turning off because of overheating (checked linux logs which said something like CPU temperature reached 100C, system shutting down). I realized that the problem is quite serious, but at that time I couldn't take some time to disassemble it and replace the thermal grease due to exams (however, I did that later, but it was too late, apparently...).

Now it boots until a certain point and then hangs, when Ubuntu is supposed to load X. Screen stays always black, with backlight. Everything seems to be working apart graphics: neither laptop screen nor external monitor show any signs.

I've read a lot of messages with people complaining about black screen, no boot and N beeps in HP models, but in my case system actually boots (I can see that because of HDD LED is showing some activity, speakers are working and I can enter a linux command, such as ''reboot'', which actually reboots the system), and doesn't beep at all.

So my question - is it a problem related to bad contacts between motherboard and NVidea chip or is it something else?

I'm about to sell that laptop as ''spares or repair'', as I guess it isn't worth fixing it. What do you thing?

Looking forward to your reply,
Jana

    skotkolr, thank you for your reply,

    I know how much 100C is, I'm from Europe. Dust indeed was the problem + there was hardly anything left of the old thermal grease.

    CPU is not the problem, because the first signs of motherboard failure were dots and lines when running GUI, so I'm pretty sure this is a GPU problem. Besides, CPU failure would not allow to do such actions, as booting from a live CD (indeed it does, just the screen stays black all the time).

    Anyway, thanks again for your reply,

    Jana

    Indeed the graphic chip needs to be replaced, but that's too much trouble for me. I'm selling that laptop for parts.

    Thank you for your time and goodbye!

The issue is usually caused by broken solder connections between some chips of the logic board and the PCB surface itself. There are two ways to fix this problem. If you'd rather not do it yourself, you can have a third party laptop repair service do it for you but if you do prefer to do it yourself, you can reflow the GPU (repairs the solder connections) or replace the logic board alltogether. If you want to replace it, get the part and ebay and use a Laptop repair guide that teaches you how to install the part yourself. If you want to reflow, Google how to reflow a motherboard and you will find ways to re-heat the board to repair the solder connections, chances of success of DIY reflow are around 50%.

First off the thermal "grease" is not the problem unless you have been removing the cpu constantly. the problem is either
1 the fan has failed you need a new one.
or
2 the fan cooling fins are clogged with dust and goop, and has not been cleaned.
however at this point you could have either damaged the cpu, or damaged the main board components around the cpu area 100 c is hot (212 F ) we all know when water boils right?
so you can try to find a replacement cpu on Ebay its easy and faster then working with customer service.

    Please let me rephrase concerning the thermal paste, if the heat sink and the cpu are very well made in tolerances then there will be very little thermal paste between the cpu and the Heat sink. Therefore it is simply the heat that damages the motherboard and the micro components on the board nearby that you cannot replace. you can replace the Video card in the computer if you want to try that line of repair, however since you have heated the main board to a significantly high temp In my professional opinion you will experience failure . Selling it for parts will ba a good if you cannot replace the video card in the computer. Some laptops have upgradeable video cards.
    Have a nice week.

What is problem in hp pavilion dv2000 no display


Hello,

the problem is either from your screen bulb, screen inverter or the screen it self. One of these is the cause of the problem. You need identify exactly where the fault is coming from so that you can go for replacement of the bad part.

If you are not a tech, then I would advice that you take it to a tech man to help you figure out what is faulty so that necessary replacement can be done.

Good luck.

Hp pavilion dv2000 notebook will not boot up


hi,
i m in Hong Kong. The stupid HP repair center charged US 90 just for inspection!!!!! They they said the whole motherboard had to be replaced, thts additional US 630 dollars, the thing is just 1.5 yr old. They also said i don get to keep the broken mother board after replacement. This is simply irresponsible, unethical, sleazy and UNJUST!!

Thanks. right now the computer is fixed for US70. when i hv time, i'll open it up and see if i can figure it out how it was fixed. The shop suggested tht the computer wont last too long. This is such bad quality for HP... Sorry, i hv to do the following for other victims to find this easily:
