Re: screen problem with the hp pavillion zv6000 notebook...
Sometimes intemittant video can be caused by a couple differnet things on a portable system.
1. Bad ground. Some LCD are grounded to the chassis through the hinges. If the screws for the hinges become loose, the ground becomes intermittant. So tighten any screws for the LCD hinges.
2. Sometimes the LCD video cable connection to the video card becomes loose from heat expansion. So see if you can find the service manual on the HP web site, and see how to reseat the video cable (should be listed under the LCD install/removal)
3. If neither of those resolve, then you may have a problem with the LCD itself or the cable that goes to the video card as hte cable goes thru the hinge assembly.

The problem is more than likely caused by the flyback transformer, this generates the high voltage to the crt screen, when this part fails the protection circuit activates causing the monitor to shut down.
Can you check the temp. of your CPU and GPU? If your GPU runs 80 grad C, you have a overheating problem. The problem is a damage to the MB by excessive heat produced by Nvidia GPU. The only way to fix this permanently is to take out the MB and reflow the GPU with heat. You can find a video on youtube how to do it. You must take out the piece of gel between GPU and cooling unit and replace it with copper bar or penny made prior 1983 - still made out of copper. Also clean the fan. Use heat transfer paste like arctic cool - not a glue, on both sides of the penny. Install win7. Win7 does not use the coprocessor and will help to ran the notebook cooler. Install speedFan 4.40 - free utility to see what the temp is of your GPU and CPU. If you did good job it will stay around 55C. If your HP notebook is still running check the temp. If the GPU is running 80C or more it will melt the connections on the MB and quit working sooner or later.
Please try to connect the monitor to another PC, if problem still exist then probably there's an internal problem in the circuit board of your monitor wherein an elecronic part/s might be cold soldered / defective. I recommend to bring the monitor to an authorized HP service center to fix the problem. If the monitor display is good if connected to other PC, then your previous PC should be checked if the VGA card (if there is any) is properly placed to its slot & working properly as well as it cables & connections. regards
I have not solved the problem of the blinking on off switch, but I have solved the problem of the monitor attached to my laptop waiting so long to start up. I never shut down the computer and I never hibernate it either. I leave it on 24 hours a day.

This error is caused by a bad sector or error on the HD. The best course of action to start with would be to either boot up from a windows XP CD or you can try going into safe mode with command prompt. Once you get to a command prompt you will want to type the command chkdsk /r. This will run a scan of the hard drive and repair any issues it is having. If you are booting from an XP CD you will want to choose the options for repair and go to the repair console. For further information please read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185
