My HP Pavilion dv9740us Notebook PC dosent start the screen is black


Doesn't start as in nothing happens when you hit the power button? Or are you saying the Desktop is black, but it seems like windows started and went through the boot process?

If nothing happens when you hit the power button:
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.

Reinstalling windows vista


Take a soft paper towel and make sure there are no fingerprints either on the top or bottom of the cd. Then put the cd back into the drive and restart the computer. Listen to the drive and see if its trying to load the cd. You should get a progress bar that comes up showing you that its trying to get into the windows setup.
If you can't hear anything from your drive then that means the drive is going bad and would need to be replaced. Also try another windows disc if you have another one just to see if the problem is the original disc. It could be that its not trying to go into the setup and its bypassing the cd and not going anywhere. Also go into your system BIOS and make sure the cd/dvd drive is the first drive in the boot list.

Laptop trouble


There is a problem with your DVD drive, then. I think it is unable to detect because there is dirt on the delicate little lens or some other problem.

Clean the lens with a cheaply available lens cleaning disc a special anti-static cloth made for these purposes.

Or see if the PC itself detects the drive. If it doesn't, restore the system to the time when it was all okay. Use System Restore.

If nothing works, show it to a doctor, and maybe you have to change it.
