You could check to see if the memory chips inside have dirty contacts. Happens often, basically you unplug it, remove the side cover, find the memory chips, try to remove them but basically just work them in and out a couple times to clean the contact points, reinstall and it might work. This happened to mine this am, worth a try.

Hp pavilion a1220n comptur will not start unplugged unit and when i plugged to back in it would not start


Do you see anything on the monitor screen? Does the tower make any beeping noise or clicking noise, or does the fan tries to start up when you power the computer on? Are the cables connected properly?
If you see anything on the monitor screen, or if you hear a beeping sound, let us know so we can diagnose further.

Have hp pavilion ze5470us that powers on but only blinking cursor shows on screen. Was working fine just a few days ago. Nothing new has been added.Hdd tested ok. What else?


That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

When I power on my HP Pavillion a1220n the power stays on but the monitor is black. Monitor tests OK.


Possibly the video card or settings. If you recieve nothing after turning the monitor on, it is most likely the video card.

Screen goes black on my hp pavilion dv4000 notebook


Try connecting an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video data will switch to the monitor automatically, check if the monitor dislays a normal image and see if the image stays on the monitor.
Also press and hold the Fn key and press the F4 key, these keys toggle the video output between the LCD screen and the video port.
Test to see if this functions correctly.
Get back to me with the results of the tests.

Color goes off


If your color is messed up on your display also then I think you need a new monitor. Why don't you try using a monitor that you know works and see if you have the same problem. Then let us know the results or the answer so we can have a little more to work with.
