Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z PC Notebook

2 Answers

My laptop has a cracked motherboard and the video screen went bad as a result of being dropped. Rather than put a bunch of money into fixing it, can I find another laptop (same) to make one good one out of 2? Where is a good place to hunt one down?

My son said he spilled soda on his dsi... it didnt get that wet but i think he dropped it. The bottom screen is a little faded and has lines in it. it still plays. is there a way to fix the lines?


No there is really no way to fix it unless if you ask the creator of of the dsi because the drop sorta cracked the screen of it. Depending on the side, top, bottom, back, where ever, it still cracks not necessarily crack but it has been to the point when it can't be fixed. The same problem happen to me except the case was that I dropped it a little more harder and the screen totally went black.

Lenovo Y410 white screen


All that's left is the Video Cable, and LCD screen, Aberger.

Video Cable connections are tight? LCD screen side, screen Inverter, and motherboard side?

Then a continuity check with a multimeter set to OHMs, for each wire in the cable, or take to a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, and have the tech check it, or replace.

Video Cable checks out, connections check out, the LCD screen is the problem.

My money is on a bad LCD screen, JMHO.

Dropped my laptop


If the laptop appears to run with a black screen, hook a spare monitor to the video output, if picture okay screen may need to be changed, check cable connections and the inverter board under the screen for cracks. If both screens show the same symptoms it is the video graphics card or the motherboard itself, if the laptop is completely dead it is the main board and needs to be assessed.

Is it worth to buy part for screen for laptop or it can be fix? Plms with laptop is when i put laptop down n screen dropped half n top half is blanks n bottom half is blurring can see half of it.... help


The screen replacement is not cheap, hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if okay! the LCD screen is bad and must be replaced, if symptom is the same for both, it is the Video Graphics Card that is the problem normally built into the motherboard, If the laptop is a few years old I would opt to replace it.

Compaq Presario CQ50-110US 15-inch Laptop dropped will boot but no video


Your laptop may have a combination of problems. Since the laptop was dropped, it is possible that your may a motherboard that no longer outputs video through the video controller, or the screen may have been damaged internally. Try hooking up an external monitor through the vga output of your laptop, usually located on the side or back of the laptop. If the external monitor works, then most likely it is your screen that's bad, if the external monitor doesn't works, then most likely it is your motherboard that's bad.


Let me know if this helps.

HP zv5430us laptop has no video. Blank


The laptop has a built-in video card and the video RAM uses part of the main RAM.
First, re-seat the RAM modules and if the laptop still does not boot up normally then remove the RAM and get it tested at your friendly computer repair shop.
If the RAM is OK then connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first and then the laptop. The video data should divert to the external monitor automatically, if you do not get any video image on the monitor then the video card in the laptop is faulty and a motherboard replacement is required.
A replacement motherboard may not be a cost effective solution and If it was me, I would put my money on a new laptop. I would then remove the hard disk and insert it into an USB adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

My laptop went to white screen every time when I on it. How to solve....my laptop -- aspire 4710z -- almost 2 years but it happened JUST it 4 mths.....


Hi..

Your problem are related with my laptop problem, but i totally fix it with my own. From my experience I can tell that this problem may be related to the following:
1. Loose connection between the video cable and the LCD screen.
2. Defective LCD screen.
3. Defective motherboard (I assume the graphics card is integrated into the motherboard).
1-laptop-white-screen.jpg Here’s an example of a laptop with white screen. When you turn on the laptop, it starts but the image on the screen is completely white right from the beginning. In my case it was a Toshiba Satellite M45 laptop but this problem may occur with any other brand.

2-external-video-works.jpg
Most likely you still can use the laptop with an external monitor. Just connect the monitor to the VGA port on the back or side of your laptop and then switch the video output from internal to external mode.
On Toshiba laptops you can toggle between internal and external screens using Fn+F5 keys. Hold down Fn and press on F5 until you get video on the external monitor.
On IBM laptops use Fn+F7.
On HP laptops use Fn+F4.
It’s possible that you have to use a different key combination on your laptop but you get the idea.
On some laptops, in order to be able to use the external monitor, you have to connect it to the laptop and then restart the laptop so the external monitor is detected by the laptop.
3-video-cable.jpg I noticed that in some cases the laptop screen may turn white because of poor connection between the video cable and the LCD screen. If you want to check this connection, you’ll have to take apart the display panel because the connector is located on the back side of the LCD screen.

4-reconnect-video-cable.jpg I always check the video cable connection first. Reconnecting the video cable may fix your problem.
If reconnecting the video cable doesn’t help, most likely you have a problem either with the LCD screen or with the motherboard.
5-disconnect-lcd-screen.jpg The best way to find out witch one is causing the problem is testing the laptop with another working LCD screen. Without this test you’ll have to guess because as I mentioned before this could either bad motherboard or bad LCD screen.
You’ll have to disconnect the video cable from the LCD screen (connector 2) and the inverter board (connectors 3 and 1). After that you connect another working screen and test video.
6-test-with-another-lcd-screen.jpg For this purpose you using one of my test LCD screens. My test screen is cracked and because of that you see a wide white band in the center but it still works fine for this test.
The original screen is white but my test screen works normal (except the crack of course) and I can see the image. After this test I can tell that the problem must be related to the screen.
7-white-lcd.jpg After I'm assembled everything back together and connected the original LCD, it’s still white.
In my case this problem is related to the LCD screen and it has to be replaced.


That's my laptop brand and model, and i am searching an image regarding about my problem. This problem are common to another brand.

Hope it may helpful for you!

Good luck
