Hi. Please connect an external monitor to see if the laptop is booting up completely. If you get video on external monitor, one of the 3 components of your LCD assembly had gone bad. There are 3 possibilities: 1st - bad LCD screen, 2nd - bad Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp (CCFL), 3rd - bad inverter.

To see if the problem is with CCFL, turn on your laptop and tilt the LCD backward. You should see an image on the screen but its really dim.

You need a known-good inverter to determine whether you have a bad LCD or inverter. You need to disassemble your LCD panel to test the inverter and LCD and I suggest to have your laptop checked by a certified laptop technician to avoid further damage.

Let me know if you have the tools, skills and willingness to purchase parts and spend time to disassemble your laptop and I will help you with the diagrams and instructions. Good luck.

    Did you check if its a bad CCFL?

  • George Maeweather Aug 26, 2010

    Yes I did and there was no image at all. On the boot up I get all he lights across the top but no post lights at the caps lock or the num lock. Then it will do nothing. I tried another power cord and battery and got the same thing. I did a hard reset and still nothing. Do you think it could be the board. The hard drive will spin and then nothing. I checked the hard drive in another machine and it will come up and read hte data. Any suggestion short of sending it to hp?

    Have you tried connecting it to an external monitor to see if you get anything?

    Test the output voltage on the power adapter/charger and see if you get the correct voltage. If the voltage is correct, remove laptop's battery, connect the power adapter, turn it on. Let me know the result. Thanks.

  • George Maeweather Aug 27, 2010

    Went through all the checks and even used a new power adapter witht the correct voltage. When I remove the battery and connect the power adapter I get the same thing. I get lights across the top of the laptop and the hard drive light will flash once and stop. The power light is lit, but it seems as if everything is just hanging and will not go any further.

    Sounds like a bad mainboard, not bad LCD.You may have to bring your laptop to a service center. Mainboard is harder to troubleshoot online.

Hi. This might be an LCD problem that you are encountering. Let us try to troubleshoot the issue first. Take out the battery first and unplugged the power adapter from the wall socket. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs then put everything back in. If Nothing happens after this procedure, then i suggest to have your laptop repaired by HP since you have a 100 percent LCD problem in your computer.

Please explain what is the problem. What you are saying makes no sense. What happens when you hit the power button? Does it boot up? Do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, see lights?
