Only thing you can do in these circumstances, besides moving your screen around position wise to see if it's a loose wire, is send it in for repair.....

unless of course, if you feel confident with opening the machine up, you may want to check to see if the cable connecting the screen to the motherboard is plugged in properly, and not loose/coming off. In my experience, this is most often the case when you have extreme discoloration- the pins can become loosely connected over time. However, opening the laptop up will void any warranty you may have on the machine.

System in safemode, restart windows normally doesn't cancel safemode neither does earlier configaration Help

  • Hello info88784, "I've read your situation, and I suggest that you can do the following. "Restart the computer, once you see the "Prompt Screen" to Press F2 or Press F12, quickly "Tap! the [DEL]key, located at the top [Right]next to the Scroll Lock, and END keys." You will know if you done it correctly, when you see the {Windows Boot Manager} Heading on the screen; at the bottom of the screen, it will read "Recovery Environment." Note: The wording may differ depending on the type & model computer you have. Now, there will be a long list of "Options" to choose from, select the option that best describes; Try each to fix the problem: Startup Repair, "Repair My Computer, and System Restore; or next time, "Press the [F8] button the next time you "Bootup" and choose the more {Advanced Options} select whatt best decribes; " In the [Systems Recovery] windows, "Configure Last Known Good Boot!" Follow all the instructions, and I hope all goes well. "I would appreciate if you could find the time to give a "Helpful Rating, its my only reward," knowing I could be of assistance! Thanks alot, paul7of9

Hp w2007 why does the computer go pink everything that is green is now black

All the colours on the screen are created by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours (red, blue, green).

Once the production of "green" ceases, anything that should be "100% green" becomes "100% black",
and every colour that indicates some percentage of "green" becomes a mixture of just RED and BLUE, i.e., various shades of PINK.

First, try the monitor on another computer (desktop or laptop). If the problem persists, it's time to replace the monitor. If the problem vanishes, it's the video-card in your computer that is not generating GREEN, or it is the "data" cable between your monitor and your computer that is not transmitting the GREEN request. So, you can try replacing the data-cable, or try replacing the video-card.

When i try to boot it up, the monitor, keyboard, and mouse don't

So, this is a Desktop unit. My advice is this; Take the cover off and try to dust off as much webbing inside as possible.Make sure you take off the power cord when working inside. You will see a fan near the middle of the motherboard. This is your Heatsink/Fan for your CPU. I would bet many pennies this is overheated and may not boot again and if it does it will be unreliable. With your fingers and everything out of the way, plug the bare unit in and turn it on. Make sure the fan on top of the CPU is running. If not, quickly shut it off. I will help you more as you write back and we will get it running.
