Always worth a go, but probably you will need to attach the HD to another pc.
There a a couple of ways to do this.
1 open pc remove HD and attach to the other pc
2 remove HD and fit it into an external hard drive enclosure
or finaly there are usb hard drive docks that you just push your hard drive in.

Black screen


does it boot from the normal screen or just an external monitor?

All the lights come on when I switch on my HP Pavillion dv9600 but the screen is blank.


DO THIS FIRST - Perform a hard reset If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
Actions to take after performing hard reset If no error message is displayed:

If a text error message is displayed, see Troubleshooting Error Messages on a Black Screen During Startup or Boot c02076104.jpg

Black Screen with No Error Messages Connect an external monitor c02076105.gif If there is a problem with the LCD display's back light or a corrupted graphics driver, the display may appear blank but the notebook may be displaying information. Attach an external monitor to test the display. If the image displays on the external monitor, there may be a graphics driver conflict. To resolve this, turn on the computer and press f8 key, then select Enable low-resolution video . If the image displays on the LCD display in low resolution, you can download and install the latest drivers for your specific graphics driver. If there is an image on the external monitor but the notebook display remains black, contact HP for technical assistance. Disconnect all peripherals and repeat the hard reset Even though users are instructed to disconnect all peripheral devices from the notebook when doing a hard reset , some devices are often overlooked. c02069237.gif Double-check that all devices are disconnected including: external keyboard and mouse (wired or wireless), USB connected external drives and devices, thumb drives and flash drives, network storage devices, PC card, SD memory cards, express card, eSata connections, firewire or similar devices, printer, scanner, camera, port replicator, or docking station, any CD/DVD from the optical disc drive, and any media from the multi-card reader.B

Black screen on booting my Compaq 610 notebook


If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.

First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.

To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.

If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.

The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.

If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.

Black screen for hp laptop


Hi,

Initially, a couple of ideas ou may want to explore:
  • hook an external monitor. Often there would be a VGA connector at the rear of a laptop specifically for this purpose. It would need a standard 15 video cable normally attached or with the external monitor. You may need to cycle through Fn + F? keys to enable the external monitor. F? would be the function key with the small monitor icon;
  • remove the hard disk of the erring laptop, connect it to a 2.5 to USB adapter and attach to a free USB port of a 2nd computer. it will be treated as an external storage device much like a thuimb/flash drive and therefore would allow copy and paste;
  • tap on the cover of the laptop, the one right behind the LCD screen anywhere on the sides, this is in the hope that it is a cold solder or loose connection;
  • run the laptop with the lid not fully opened;
  • slightly warp/twist the lid/LCD, it could just be a loose connection;
  • if the display works even just momentarily, then chances are that no major repair work is required. The bulk of the job would be in the opening and offhand, no major component replacement.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

 Hello jarkk, I believe your problem is with your backlight inverter. the hard drive should be installed for this process of checking it on an external monitor. with the hard drive removed it will not boot to the operating system. with the drive in, use the external monitor. if the monitor works when plugged into the external monitor plug, this will eliminate a bad video card. if the screen is still black on the laptop screen, replace your backlight inverter. the last case cenario is to make sure your backlights are not burnt out.

Black screen of death


It is not a hard drive failure as suggested by Dageezer. I'm tring to fix that SAME problem now...

The screen is only black even though you can see some graphics on the background if you strain your eyes very well.

When connected it to an external monitor the graphics become bright and clear... just that the host PC is still black.

It is probably a problem with the monitor... I'm checking it out. would post a feed back later.

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
