Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
If the various lights on the keyboard section were on, you could hear the dvd player test itself briefly at start-up, and it sounded like it was running normally but just no picture, it would be your screen that has failed.
But, if almost nothing happens at all it is one of the following:
1. Your DC power jack where your cord plugs into the laptop has come partially or wholly disconnected from the motherboard inside. (see if it feels really loose and wobbly)
2. You have a bad stick of RAM that has worn out.
3. We hope for one of the first two, but it's also highly likely that your video card has failed. This is a known issue with your model of HP.
If you are not comfortable with downloading the disassembly manual from the HP Support site and attempting major repairs yourself, then you need to take this to a reasonably priced repair guy.

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.
