Question about Computers & Internet

Open Question

The hinge sprung on my HP Pavillion laptop--popped the screen out--really messed up the let hinge. Need to replace. How???? Two different repair places told me it would $300-400 to fix it--not worth that. Would like to repair myself. They told me this is a known, common problem with this computer.

SOURCE: Hp Pavillion laptop. Powers up

Hi Pinky01,

thanks for the response to my problem. I have contacted HP but they are not interested because the laptops are no longer warranted. We have had a response from the retailer and they will come and take a look at it but are making no promises but fingers crossed they may do a foc repair.

thanks again!

HP will not cover the repair if guaranty is expired.

Video card on your laptop is integrated on motherboard, and the repairman must replace the whole motherboard to fix it.

I quote : "Only half the screen works the rest is justa grey colouring." that is more likely a problem with the ribbon cable, connecting LCD, or with LCD screen itself, in some case , as said by the repairman , it can be the video card.
if the repairman did not open and inspected the laptop LCD display , connector and cables, then the problem it is probably the ribbon cable or the LCD panel.
The technician mentioned the motherboard, because that is the most expensive repair service, so that he can cover his back.

Ask a quote to a different technician, see if this can give you different quotes for all possible faults.

The possibilities are:

1 Replace ribbon cable

2 Replace LCD display

3 Replace motherboard.

SOURCE: My HP dv5000 laptop has AMI BIOS beep code - 4 beeps

It sounds like either RAM or VIDEO problem to me. (I can't remember the specific beep sequence for AMI bios errors).

Hard to diagnose in Laptops.... if it was a desktop you can just start swapping out the RAM DIMMS..... are you techo enough to check whether you have 1 or 2 RAM cards installed? If 2 then run it with each card in turn to see if it boots (indicating 1 faulty RAM stick). If only 1 then try running MEMTEST on it to see if any errors. (I like HIRENS if you have it... I think it usually has latest MEMTEST on it).

If your cards all pass then its very likely a video problem. If its onboard video with no expansion slot (likely in a laptop) then you may be buggered.

Let me know if you need a hand doing any of the above.

HP Pavillion laptop Model # ze4220. Does not display anything on the screen . Tried pushing fn + f5 3 times, like the manual suggested to no avail. Help?it


Could be screen is bad. Try connecting a monitor to the monitor output if one. If monitor works then your screen is definitely fubar. If it also does not work then the video circuits of laptop are gone.

If laptop is the messed up you are screwed since the video circuits are all part of the mo bo and the entire board would have to be repaired. HP will soak you for the board and labor. Cheaper to replace laptop.

Hi I have a hp laptop pavillion and the screen does not come on.


Good day sir, hi, your HP can either be of the ff.
  1. your lcd back light is bad, your lcd screen is dark, but you can see HD light blinking. This is happening when the laptop is loading windows. problem with the inverter circuit that provides power to the back light.
  2. Your back light is bad also can produce no visible screen.
The said problem can be repairable by simply replacing the said parts. but you need to dissassemble the laptop, Or get it repaired by your dealer. either of the two said solution you need cash. but check out first the warranty or estimates of repair. get the best deal.

Laptop screen in complete darkness but external monitor works fine


Make sure to check that it's plugged in on both ends - at the motherboard and on back of the screen.

The other possibility is that your inverter got shorted out somewhere along the way. Try shining a flashlight on the screen - if the cable is plugged in ok you will see a faint imge.
