I have an hp pavilion dv9815nr notebook pc. My laptop turns on, but when I enter the first letter of my password the screen goes black. Computer sound like it is still running but just black screen


Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

My laptop screen is not coming on it is receiving power but still not coming on


Timothy, post the laptop manufacturer, and the laptop's model number. It's on the bottom of the laptop, Usually in a sticker, or white Service Tag.
This way I can guide you in more detail. Post back in a Comment.

A) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA connector, on the laptop.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Could be on one of the sides of the laptop, or the back of the laptop.
You can use a CRT monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached.

B) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least three display options available:
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
Which one is it? Dunno. You didn't state what laptop manufacturer, and model number.

It is one of the F1 through F12 keys. Most of the time the F4, or F5, or F7 key. Has a monitor symbol on it, and sometimes a side arrow.

No display on external monitor still?
Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap once more on the Display Toggle-Over key.

If the display still does not show on the external VGA monitor, you have a bad graphics chipset on the motherboard. Usually means motherboard replacement.
(There are problems with HP Pavilion dv2000 series, Pavilion dv6000 series, and Pavilion dv9000 series, in this area. There are other model series of laptops also, not just HP. There is a solution besides motherboard replacement)

C) IF, the display shows on the external VGA monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

I can help you find it, just need the laptop manufacturer name, and Model Number.
Post back in a Comment.

Keyboard lights up screen stays black....after inserting recovery disk screen still remains black...


Would like you to attach an external monitor for a diagnoses.

A VGA monitor.
Can be a CRT monitor that resembles a small TV, or a flat LCD screen monitor, that has a VGA cable attached,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

1) Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, attach the VGA cable of the monitor to the laptop's VGA connector.

[For the HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC, the VGA connector is on the Left side at the Rear. Second port from the rear. 15 pins.
3 rows of 5]

2) Turn the monitor on. If a CRT style allow it to warm up.
3) Turn the laptop on.

By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.

If not, press, and hold down on the FN key,
(Second key from the left, on the Bottom row on the Keyboard),
and tap on the F4 key.
(Top of Keyboard towards the left)

Still no? Hold the Fn key down again, and at the same time tap on the F4 key.

There are 3 display options;

1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

IF, the display shows up on the external monitor, and if it is OK, the problem lies in the Display Assembly, and/or the Video Cable.

More on that in a moment.

IF, the display does Not show up on the external monitor, or if it is garbled, the graphics chipset is bad.

HOWEVER, there is a problem with the graphics chipset, for the dv6000 series of HP Pavilion Notebook PC's.
More specifically it isn't actually the graphics chipset itself, but the mounting of the graphics chipset to the motherboard.
More on this in a moment.

External VGA monitor shows a good display;
Video Cable:
The video cable is checked for apparent damage first, and at the same time, see if it's connectors are tightly plugged in.

On one end, the video cable is plugged into the motherboard.

(ALL power removed, AC adapter { Charger} and Battery, the Switch Cover is removed, and the Keyboard, far enough to lay it back out of the way. Keyboard Cable still attached to motherboard. The Display Cable is the one to the Far left, right under the left side of the LCD screen. The cable next to it, to the immediate right, is the Microphone Cable )

The video cable routed from the connection on the motherboard, up under the left Hinge Cover, and into the Display Assembly, where it then attaches to the Back of the LCD screen.

THIS connection must be checked also.

{ Just gave advice similar to this earlier. The asker's problem turned out to be a loose video cable connection, on the back of the LCD screen }

Examine the sheath of the video cable. See if there are signs of damage. If so the tiny wires inside the cable could be damaged.
Apparent damage or not, you may want to remove the video cable, and perform a continuity check with a multimeter. (Ohm's. Check each wire in the cable)

Video Cable connections prove to be tight, video cable continuity check proves video cable is OK, move on to the screen Inverter.

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce light. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is the additional light source.

A Backlight can be a CCFL, or a series of LED lights.

The Backlight is a CCFL for an HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC.
[It is 2mm Wide, and 334mm Long. Or a little thicker than 1/16th inch Wide, and a little over 13 inches Long ]

A CCFL is a Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp.
Similar to Fluorescent lighting used in homes, and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

A screen Inverter is used to convert power (Electricity) from the laptop, FOR the Backlight, and LCD screen.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault is a bad screen Inverter.

Example of a screen Inverter for a Pavilion dv6000z Notebook PC,

http://www.nylaptopparts.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=560

The thin plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen, and is in front of the LCD screen, (Resembles a picture frame), is the Display Bezel.
The screen Inverter is located behind the Display Bezel, and at the bottom of the LCD screen area.

External VGA monitor does NOT show a good display, it is a graphics chipset mounting issue, more to follow.

The screen on my HP Pavilion ze 1210 has blacked out


Hi- check it is not in the external mode for connection to another monitor or device. There should be one of the function buttons dedicated to this eg F4 or F5. It will have the picture of a screen or a monitor or two screens on it. You may have to press ALT at the same time though as the F button. Press once to change to external then again for external plus your own screen and then again again for just your own screen. If you understand this go ahead and see what happens. Otherwise its a hardware fault and you could get repaired - anything from £60 upwards I would say depending on the nature of the fault. We could do for you if you send by the way....

I have a hp pavilion ze 2000 and when I turn it on the two lights by the scroll and caps lock key blink and the screen stays blank. Please help me!


Hello, I'd start by hooking up another external monitor, that way you can rule out if your video/graphics card is working. If the new monitor works that means your video card is fine and you'll need to look at replacing your current monitor Good luck, mpawlak908

HP pavillion dv9005 no display - works fine on external monitor


If the notebook's video card (which may be on the motherboard) is successfully displaying images on an external monitor it sounds more like a problem with the notebook display or its connections. Probably the motherboard is OK.

HP pavilion 1000 screen is black. I can not make out anything on the screen as the ccfl bulb is not lighting, I have changed the bulb, and tried two new inverters and nothing its really annoying me now any...


If you are not getting anything on the display, it might be the display itself. Try to hook the computer up to an external monitor. If you get a display on the monitor (be sure to push the Fn key and the appropriate F key to switch displays), then it's your LCD screen. If there is nothing on the external display, your video card is bad. The video on this screen might be integrated into the motherboard.
