Question about HP Pavilion dv2890NR Notebook
Actually, the fact that the laptop is booting and you can hear the Windows sounds is a very good omen.
1. Get access to an external monitor
2. Connect to the monitor, power on the laptop, and hold down the fn key and press the F4 key to transfer the video signal to the external monitor.
3. If the external monitor looks like your normal desktop then you only need to replace the screen and screen inverter.
4. If the external moitor will not display your laptop's signal, it's a more serious problem and would likely demand a new motherboard.
Knowing the outcome of the test will help you choose which action to take. The scrren and inverter replacement should cost about 150 to 175 US if you find someone nice whose not trying to rob you blind. :)
