Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Screen just went black on Compaq Presario 2000

All of  a sudden, in the middle of work ing on a Word document, the screen went completely back. I can't see anything even if I shine bright light on the screen.  I tried the "hard reset" - taking out the battery, unhooking the AC, holding power down for 1 minute - with no results. Any thoughts on what this is, or how I can solve the problem? I am on a tight deadline and need to get the documents I was working on off this drive, is there anything I can do?
Thanks!

    Does the computer seem to boot up normally, you just can't see anything on the screen?

I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim rather than a slow degradation, the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

Can you see what's on the screen if you hold it under a light? Did the screen die suddenly or were there more symptoms?

Screen went black...rebooted, computer seems to


Remove the battery and disconnect the power adapter for about a minute.

connect only the AC then boot it back up. If you can see the Compaq splash screen and still unable to load Windows, re install OS.

If you could not see the splash screen, too bad it could be a motherboard issue,

Hope this helps.

What was your coworker doing on it? I would say you need to at least do a disk check. You can do this through windows repair console or in Vista you can boot to the disk and have it check boot up problems. Very easy.
