Hi im new and a bit confused as to where to post.
basically, my laptop screen was going white then normal then white
again.now its just completly white and when i hook it up to an external
monitor it works fine even in windows.its only the LCD on the laptop
that is white. its a HP ZD 7000. I have read in other forums that i
need to take the screen out and clean the connectors ect. i have done
that and its still white but it still works on an external screen
really well. i really love this laptop and i really want it to get
fixed.i have also been told that the laptop screen is fine as it still
goes on even though it is white. any help would be great!!

Re: white screen zd7000
You still might have a problem with your connector. It might have a cold soldered joints. Try to power on your laptop with no keyboard cover in the way were you can have an access to the place where cable is connected to your motherboard then try to wiggle it a little. If your video is coming up and down, you have a cold soldered joints. Another considerations would be:
1. Your LCD cable
2. Your LCD goes bad

If you're talking about your screen, it's probably the inverter going bad.
You can go to insidemylaptop.com and click on Laptops, or HP, and then inverter. These will be on the right hand side of the screen and you will see what I'm talking about. You can probably get one from ebay for just a few dollars (just search Pavilion inverter, or dv4000 inverter). They aren't hard to replace and tey give very detailed instructions. Or you might be able to buy a used or new screen for your laptop and replace it for a bit more. If you take it to a repair shop they'll probably charge you a couple hundred dollars to do it. Hope this helps

You need a new led replacement in your LCD on your laptop. It would be cheaper to do that than buying a LCD. The Inverters for the LCD are easy to replace. make sure you check the model number on your laptop.
Try your old HDD in it and see if that works. If it does work then nothing is damaged except your DVD drive/Controller. Try putting the new HDD in another computer, installing windows then putting it back in the HP. If all else fails then flash the bios with an updated image and see if that rectifies the problem.
