Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. I have had the laptop for less than a year and all of a sudden when I powered on my laptop the screen had a red tint to it. It continues to have these speckled red spots all over the screen for the entire time I use the laptop. Sometime the screen will correct itself but it does not happen all the time and it there is no specific amount of time that passes before the screen fixes itself. I ahve tried changing the display setting and adjusting the graphics card setting but nothing seems to work. Please help! thank you. Bobby Palsa (

It is probably your video card failing.

If you can try either another video card in your computer or your card in another computer, this will enable to to see if the same is happening with the other unit.

Obviiuosly if your card does the same in another computer or there is no problem with the new card then you have identified your problem, the solution being to buy a new video card (Note: ANY modern video card will work well in a computer - you do not have to spend a fortune to get good graphics - I am told that PCI Express cards are preferred over AGP cards though I don't know why).

Good luck.

Can I switch out the screen to my hp g60 535 dx laptop with a screen from an hp dv6000 laptop

That will be impossible. The screen from the HP Pavilion G60-535dx is a 15.6 CCFL LCD while the one of the DV6000 is 15.4.

I suggest buying a new screen for the DV6000 if you need to. Or go online and trade the screen of the HP G60 and use the fund acquired to get a screen for the DV6000.

Hope this helps.

Describe your HP Pavilion dv6000z 15.4" Notebook Laptop PC (AMD Turion 64 X2 Duo Core TL-50 1.60GHz, 1GB RAM, 100G... (d6000z) PC Notebook Problem SCREEN WONT TURN ON LED LIGHTS OF POWER BUTTON...

The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on

1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

Sudden shutdown

If the battery is full and still shuts down suddenly then it could be a heatsinking problem on your Notebook. Also try unchecking the option "Automatically Restart" from StartUp & Recovery section in System Properties.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

Try using an external monitor,every laptop has a blue VGA connector,just connect a monitor there and check is those lines
disappear,if it does,probably you have a problem with the internal connection of your monitor to the motherboard.
