First, open the back cover for the memory (with power and battery removed of course) and remove and re-seat the memory modules properly. Replace battery power and see if any result.

Second, try hooking unit to an external monitor to see if it is the computer or the just the screen giving issues.

If the monitor does not work, it is possible that the CPU could be at fault or the system board (possibly the built in video card) is faulty and this would need a new system board.

    Don't forget to change out that little watch battery in the compartment with your ram before you go put too much money into something that will do the same thing to you again down the road.

As the notebook does not boot up and as you have already reseated the memory modules and tried connecting external monitor and as the issue is unresolved. It is clear that the issue is due to internal hardware malfunction of the system board of the notebook. However, before confirming the same, I would recommend you to perform hard reset which would discharge the static charges from the notebook. You can follow the steps listed below to perform hard reset:
1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.
This will remove the discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now turn on the PC and check for the issue. If the issue persists, then it is clear that the issue due to internal hardware malfunction of the notebook and requires an onsite diagnosis. At this point, if your notebook is under factory warranty then I would recommend you to contact HP to get your notebook repaired under warranty.

Contact HP. There are known issues with the DV line of laptops. They die......seriously. Ask them if the problem qualifies your laptop for a "one time warranty enhancement". They might just fix it free as there are known problems with the DV series.

Hope this helps! Post a comment if not and I'll see if I can help.

SOURCE: laptop black screen and problem

Ok. Lets verify if this is problem with the graphics adapter or the screen itself. Do you hear the system start up? If yes then are you able to get a display on external monitor and press the display swap key? Please provide this info so that we can continue the diagnosis
