Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hp dv6000 screen looks splotchy, colors are all grainy (wormy) and have weird swirls in them and it's a bit out of focus. I replaced the screen with a new one, and it looked normal for about 3 minutes, then I shut it down to finish snapping the bezel back on and re-started it, and it looked just like before. It's obviously not the screen - could it be the inverter?

It could also be the hardware issue with the display.
Check in BIOS to confirm:

1.Please power ON the notebook, Keep tapping F10 as soon as you power it ON.
2.Press the F9 key to reset the BIOS defaults, it will ask to restore defaults. Hit Yes.
3.Press F10 and save the changes.
In BIOS please check if you can see the splotch, If the screen is same in BIOS then it is hardware issue, service the notebook.

If you do not see the screen flickering in the BIOS then please perform BIOS update and graphics drivers update

you have probably damaged the screen itself, try using it connected to an external monitor, if you have a good picture then your screen needs replacing

There may be some problem with your picture tube else try this that looks like retrace lines. Anyway, you should try to adjust screen pot not focus pot. Make sure you are turning blue screen pot (there are 3 focus pots and 3 screen pots) and do it slowly. If you turn it too much, it will affect your grayscale

You can do this yourself, or you can hire someone to do it, howeven it is not that hard, Go online to find some replacement LCD screens for that model Laptop and then the rest pretty much self explanatory

Dropped laptop, color on screen not natural


The problem could be that you jolted a heat sync or fan loose that cools the video adapter. If you power off the machine and let it sit for several minutes and then reboot and the same thing happens, its a heat issue. Laptops have the graphics card in a chip form soldered to the motherboard, thats not the issue. Undoubtedly you have jostled something loose. If in fact it is a heat issue, you can have someone take the laptop apart and reseat the heat sync or maybe check on the fan that cools the video adapter.

Grainy printing down left side


Toner cartridges have the shortest life in the laser printer. So for every image quality issue try replacing that color that you see the defects in.
