Powers up, beeps 4 times, no screen display, cannot access set up, backlit keys flash, no keys do anything except the power button (to turn off). Could it be major disaster? Any advise could be appreciated

How do I see if Video card is not working on a Latitude D630 lab top


Plug an external display in. Laptops don't have video cards, it is all on the mother board.

Inspiron 1501 wont start


Does it look like it is running with the exception of the screen being black?

Does it ever post anything on the screen when you hit the power button?

Beep tones and blinking lights tells thetechnicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lightscontinuous.

I have an HP ZD8000 that will not boot up. When started the fans and DVD drive start intermittently, there are two short beeps and the nums and caps keys flash once and the screen remains black, and goes...


I would recommend to disconnect all external devices and also internal cards and devices (hard drive, cd rom driver etc) just have your motherboard processor keyboard and power supply connectors and front pannel connectors press the power button and watch the keyboard, if it flashes the lights twice or once. if once turn off the power and then remove your ram modules and turn on check if you get beeps from the motherboard buzzers, if not its is evident that the motherboard or processor is definitely bad. you need to check and replace them.

some times even a bad power supply with less supply of voltage cause this if you have another power supply (SMPS) unit check with it.

HP Pavillion dv2500 laptop will not boot up.


Pressing the f8 key doesn't work either? This should boot the laptop to safe mode, if it doesn't then check the memory cards before you do anything else, try to get somebody with the same type of memory card to lend it to you. If that doesn't work, then your HDD is corrupted, and to re-install Windows.

Hp pavillion zd8000 monitor has 37 vertical lines


Interesting that you counted them!
If you haven't tried to reinstall the video drivers, do that.
If that doesn't work, hook up an external monitor to see if the display is OK on that.
If it is, then your LCD screen has a problem and will need to be replaced.

Lights up then beeps twice and power button flashes but nothing on screen zd8000 pavillion


You can try taking out the memory and reseating it.

Majority of the time with the ZD8000 the motherboard has gone bad.

HP Pavillion ZD8000 display problem


Before you invest any further, try the lcd inverter http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/01/31/replace-screen-inverter-fix-backlight/ I have seen them for real cheap. If you take off your bezel cover underneath the display you'll find the inverter9147480.jpg or if necessary you can get a tech to help install. Usually theres a series of beeps when you get a blank screen. Hp pavilion laptops also get hot on the keyboard after a while from long term use and zd 8000 came out about 4 years ago so the display should be a pretty good looking glossy screen. Those are nice laptops to work with by the way.

Zd8000 LCD no display


Sounds like your display went out to me. You may be able to replace it yourself, depending on your skill level/experience with electronic repairs. At any rate you'll need to find a reasonably priced replacement screen. I usually find New and Used ones on ebay and laptops for parts there and other internet classifieds and auction sites. You could also get a replacement through HP, but at an inflated price I'm sure. Since yours went out and it's not a simple repair, I would only consider a new replacement screen and after figuring the cost, resources that your laptop has compared to a new replacement, and time involved, only then would I determine whether it's worth repairing or not?

On the other hand, you could check the ribbon cable that connects the display to your Graphics card on the Board and re seat it to see if that cable has come loose causing your very dim display. My experience would lead me to expect the LCD to have run it's course though.

Happy tinkering and Good luck.
