Question about HP Pavilion dv9208nr Turion 64 X2 DC TL-50 1.6GHz 1GB 120GB 17"RP114UA PC Notebook
My laptop screen is black. When I power it on, the lights and fan come on but the screen stays dark. After about 10 seconds the lights and fan turn off for a second and then come back on. I've tried connecting it to a separate monitor and it worked in the past but now it won't. I've also tried removing the battery and holding the power button down for 60 seconds and trying to power it on then. Still nothing. PLEASE HELP!!!
I am sorry to tell you that this series of HP laptops has a known problem with the video chip on the motherboard. There are thousands of complaints to HP about the DV9000 seriies laptop, and yours has the same sympoms that others have reported. HP extended the warranty on some, but most people lost their shirts. There are a few people who have had mixed success in repairing the motherboards, but often they have to get replaced. If you did a google search on yor laptop problem, you will find lots of info.
The bottom line is that your laptop is expensive to fix, and it is a known problem!
