Question about HP Pavilion dv9700t Notebook PC

1 Answer

Blank screen I have a HP Pavilion laptop that has been used almost exclusively as a desktop (so it hardly has been moved around) and now the screen won't work. I have hooked up another monitor to it, and that works just fine, although it's a bit awkward and I can't take that on the road with my job because I'd look unprofessional. Is there an easy & inexpensive fix for this sort of thing? I bought it new about 2 or 2 1/2 years ago, as I recall.

Sometimes there is a function button that switches from the external monitor to the laptop screen. I think your computer is Fn + F4. Try pressing that a few times and see if your screen comes back.
Also if you can see any thing on the laptops screen even a very faint image then you may have a problem with the screens inverter. The inverter is a very inexpensive part, usually less then $20. You will need a good set of small screw drivers do do this repair.

    Thanks, I will try that Fn F4 trick tomorrow morning. (Heading to bed now)
    There is no image at all, not even faint. I failed to mention that sometimes when we would fire up the computer the screen was fine, and sometimes it was blank.

I have an hp 1030nr, after powering up, it goes to a blank screen and will not do anything else


Try doing a hard reset by disconnecting everything connected to the tower (including the power cable), once everything is disconnected press and hold the power button for around 15 seconds. Reconnected everything back then power the PC on. If this procedure doesn't work, you might need to reseat the computer's Memory Modules, the Hard Drive and the CD-ROM drive.

Hope this help. Goodluck!
