1. Try to remove the ram and using a pencil eraser, clean the contacts and plug it in and see what happens

if it doesnt work.

2. Remove the AC and the battery, then hold the powerbutton for 5 seconds. and plug the AC adapter and see if it powers up properly.

Check ink cartridge on right


Yes - if they are not used they will dry up and be unusable.
Unfortunate but you need to replace them.
For future ref - IF they will not be used in 4 - 6 months
pop them out and put scotch tape on the head where ink comes out
and that should keep them good for several months..
I have done that and close to a year later - was fine.
Hope this helps :)

Black screen when turned on


I would check the memory first. If you have two sticks of ram in it. Take one out the try to start it. if you have no luck, switch it with the other one. Then try a restart.
If you have lights but black screen, your video (gpu) may be bad. The fix depends on the model you have. In most cases, it is a motherboard replacement. If you have a DV6000-DV9000 they are notorious for having bad solder. It comes loose and loses connection. You can take the motherboard from the laptop case, heat the gpu for about 30 seconds (with a heat gun), and hold pressure on it for 1 minute. When you put it back together, put silver grease on the gpu and lay a copper shim ( I use a penny) between the gpu and the heat sink. This fix works 75% of the time, but it is not a permanent fix. You may get month out of it, 6 months if you are lucky. You will eventually replace the motherboard

My screen has blue and red lines across it. Now the red lines are becoming stronger and the screen flashes red until it turns off. how do i fix this?


This is for if the lines are thin and in the form of an arc across the screen.

You need to turn down the screen voltage for the blue and red CRT. I believe the access is through the front on that model.

1) Remove the front grill
2) There should be access panel you need to remove once you remove the front grill. This is where the screen voltage adjustment is located
3) Look for a small black box with six knobs on it. One row is for "Focus" and one row is for "screen". It will be marked, but probably need a flashlight to see which row it is. There will be a "R", "G" and "B" next to each knob to represent Red, Green Blue respectively.

4) Careful with the access panel removed, you are only inches away from very dangerous voltages.
5) slowly turn the R or B knob counterclockwise until the lines on the screen disappear.
Keep your hands away from everything else and only use one hand near the tv. put the other hand behind your back.

6) Once corrected, replace the panel and put the grill cover back on.

About a year ago out of the blue, my laptop screen started turning off but the computer was still running. It has Windows Vista and Ubuntu. The problem was that the screen would start up normally and then...


it sounds like a mother board or graphic card problem
get a proper diagnosis from a computer repair shop but technology is improving every day and laptops are getting lighter and faster so after getting the diagnosis and quote a replacement may be the option to consider
